Off The Beaten Track – Bangkok Puppet Show at Aksra Theatre
One of Bangkok’s must-see attractions, this performance of folk tales told through the classic art of puppetry takes place on an elaborate stage. Rather than being hidden away, the puppeteers are very much part of the show. Three puppeteers control the legs, arms, and head of each puppet. Dressed in black, they blend into the background while the colourful puppets come to life. Both puppets and puppeteers dance along with a live orchestra, featuring a combination of Thai and European instruments.
