Siam Niramit Bangkok
One of the greatest wheelchair accessible tours in Bangkok is the spectacular show called Siam Niramit. It’s a wonderful show that shows the heritage of Thailand.
From the moment you enter Siam Niramit prepared to be amazed by all the colours and the sounds that you will hear.
Visitors will be greeted by Thai people in traditional costumes, mystical creatures and folklore.
Make your way down a parade of shops selling traditional Thai craft – there is so much to see it really is a feast for the eyes.
You will see a boxing ring with some Thai guys giving a show of traditional Thai boxing, where you will witness the ceremony and the music of Thai boxing, then see an elephant giving rides to people. Here you can have your photo taken with the elephant.
You will find many wheelchair accessible ramps, giving access to the whole venue.
You will see a traditional Thai village where Thai ladies also dressed in traditional costume will give you some traditional foods. You will also see a lake with a traditional boat giving boat rides – this is not accessible, but it is nice to see the traditional ways people would boat on the river in the past. See some buffalo grazing in a traditional Thai stall and
Within easy reach are excellent disabled toilets, they have really thought about the needs of disabled people and made everything accessible.
DINNER IS SERVED
Before the show starts you go to a buffet restaurant, it really is a sight to behold. The restaurant has a huge dining hall serving cuisine from all over Thailand and you can eat as much as you like and discover delicacies that you wouldn’t find in many restaurants in Bangkok.
Waiters and waitresses are on hand to give you any assistance that you may require and to bring back the many plates of food that you will surely enjoy.
THE SHOW BEGINS
After dinner, it’s time for the show. To get to the main theatre it’s a few minutes’ walk, but it is fully accessible and has ramps throughout that can be easily accessed by wheelchairs.
Once inside the theatre people with limited mobility or wheelchair users will be directed to a lift that will take you to your seating area there is special seating areas for wheelchairs to park alongside the theatre style chairs.
The show itself is just fantastic and extremely well choreographed. It tells the story of Thailand and starts off showing culture from all areas of Thailand it then goes into the history of Thailand, and also shows some of the beliefs of the Thai people.
This really is a very educational, well thought out, fun and great value show. You will see acrobats, elephants, goats, chickens an amazing light show and choreographed dancing.
There really is something for everyone. The show lasts for about an hour and a half and is action packed.
It’s the best show I have seen for a long time and this is recommended as one of the most accessible shows in Bangkok.
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
If you want a great night out, and to learn about Thai culture in a totally accessible and magical environment with dinner thrown in at a great price, then we recommend Siam Nirimit as one of the best shows in Bangkok.
This is a world-class, heart stopping show filled with colour and wonder, with great music and superb dancing. The complex includes outdoor areas, an indoor dining area and the theatre. A visit to Bangkok is not complete without a trip here.
