Lady boys and cabarets 

Travel

Thailand is famous for their lady boys and cabaret shows. On a recent trip to Phuket, I bought tickets to see the Simon show. It kept me on the edge of my seat. Quite literally actually…because that’s the only way that I could actually see the show. The auditorium designer obviously didn’t think this one through. The girl seated in front of me wasn’t exceptionally tall either. If anything, she was exceptionally short. 
There were a lot of parts that were boring, and if you check the time and wonder when it’ll end, then trust me, it isn’t a very good show. It was mainly lip singing and non energetic dancing. Honestly, the only good parts of the show were the comedy skits, which was quite sad. I mean, I didn’t expect them to really sing but I was expecting a good performance. A lot of the dancing lacked energy and seemed half assed. At that point, we weren’t even there for a cabaret show…it was more of a “is that seriously a guy?” show. 

I had a pretty good experience at the Tiffany show in Bangkok when I was little (maybe I was too little to have standards), but after a disappointing Tiffany show in Bangkok, and now a disappointing Simon show in Phuket, I think it’ll be a loooong time till my next cabaret in Thailand.
