Certified as the world’s highest stage by Guinness World of Records, with over 150 performers and 500 costumes, it’s no wonder Siam Niramit is known as the most spectacular show in Bangkok.

When the sun sets, the area presents an ideal opportunity for photography against landmarks such as The Temple of Dawn (Wat Arun) and the Grand Palace.
