An Experience Not to Be Missed

With its rich history that reads like an epic novel, Thailand is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing Asian nations, replete with over 700 years of captivating culture, customs, and traditions. But just how Thailand’s spawning seven centuries are brilliantly captured into a 90-minute production, Siam Niramit has the answer. Housing the Ratchada Theatre, a miniature Thai village, Sawasdee Restaurant and a souvenir shop all under one roof, the Siam Niramit compound is decked out in contemporary Thai style, with small ‘salas’ (gazebos) and sculptures of Kinnaree, a mythical winged creature prevalent in many Thai fables. Here you can also feed the elephants, listen to a ‘road’ (Thai xylophone) band and take pictures with characters from the show.

Siam Nitamit celebrates the glorious space of Siam hundreds of years ago with three main acts:

– Journey Back into History. For over seven centuries, Siam has been home to diverse cultures, a cross-road where civilizations meet. In Act 1, Siam Niramit takes you back to the past to witness.

The North – The Ancient Kingdom of Lanna: The King and Queen lead a procession to worship relics of the Lord Buddha. They release a ceremonial lantern then the royal guards perform a display of swordsmanship.

The South Seas – Traders from overseas: In the south, Thai Buddhist and Muslim cultures blend harmoniously. Chinese merchants arrive from across the seas to barter goods.

The Northeast – Heritage of the Khmer Civilization: Villagers celebrate the religious festival in front of the sacred temple. Suddenly an ancient and revered Khmer temple appears before their eyes. “Apsara” (angels) magically come to life.

The Central Plains – Ayutthaya, Mighty Capital: The peasants live a simple life, cultivating rice in the fertile soil of the Central Plains. Life in the palace, in contrast, is very grand, as Western ambassadors arrive to discuss foreign relations. Witness the magnificent procession of royal barges.Despite their diverse cultures and livelihoods, Thai people are all bound by a common belief in the religious principle of the Law of Karma. Good deeds or bad deeds in this world result in merit or suffering in the next life.In Act 2 we visit the three realms central to traditional Thai beliefs…

Journey Beyond Imagination:  The Three Realms. Despite their diverse cultures and livelihoods, Thai people are all bound by a common belief in the religious principle of the Law of Karma. Good deeds or bad deeds in this world result in merit or suffering in the next life.In Act 2 we visit the three realms central to traditional Thai beliefs.

Fiery Hell, where the flames are fuelled by peoples sins, is ruled by Phrayom, King of Hell. He ensures that the condemned souls receive punishment that matches the nature and gravity of their crimes. Liars have their tongues torn out; alcoholics are forced to drink from a cauldron of boiling water; adulterers must climb a tree bristling with sharp thorns.

Himapaan is a mystical forest that exists at the boundary between our earthly realm and heaven. This beautiful and mysterious forest is populated by magical creatures such as kinaree (half woman-half bird), and nareepon (beautiful girls born from trees as fruit)… In this scene,we see Mekhala & Ramasoon, demi-gods who are believed, in Thai mythology, to be the progenitors of lightning and thunder. Heaven, where Indra, the greatest deity of all, presides. Angels perform an elegant aerial dance.
