Most tourists, whilst coming to Bangkok, want to discover the Thai culture through temples, islands or local food. However, another way to discover the country is through its diversified activities and art. We do know it can be hard to find something to do on the other side of the planet but no worries we are here to give you some tips ! Here’s one activity we love doing in Bangkok: “Khon” or “Lakhon”. Now you know the name of the famous Thai dance. You probably heard of their famous “Muay Thai” before, which is Thai Boxing, however the other traditional sport is the Thai dance. Years ago, the “Lakhon” was only reserved to the Royal family. Nowadays you can find shows in temples or you can easily take dance classes.
