The lights dim and you are transported back into time to the ancient Lanna kingdom in northern Thailand. Performers dressed as the King and Queen of that time lead a lantern-lit procession to pay homage to Buddhist relics enshrined in the Chiang Man Temple, while their maids of honour dance gracefully and the Royal Guards show off their swordsmanship. Using stunning sets and costumes, coupled with enhanced special effects and advanced technology and a gigantic stage (now listed in the Guinness Book of World Records), this three-act 80-minute audio-visual extravaganza that is a must-do for families takes you on a whirlwind tour of the Thailand’s history and mythology.

The large cast of performers that include elephants, flying angels skilfully whisk the audience from the ancient Lanna and Ayuthaya kingdoms and other regions of the country to the legendary Himapan forest that surrounds the base of Mount Meru that according to Hindu mythology is the abode of the gods, and the realms of heaven and hell. A re-enactment of traditional festivals brings down the curtain on the show.

Before the show, wander through the cultural complex that features traditional villages from Thailand’s four regions for a glimpse of traditional Thai lifestyles and the arts and crafts.
