Thailand Transgender Calypso show

A few years ago on a trip to Thailand and Bangkok I saw the famous Calypso transgender show. Some of the males were surgically altered to females and some were not and were transvestites. They were all talented, good dancers and singers. Many were far more attractive than the average female! I relaxed and just pretended they were females and found them attractive! Interesting sensation realising they were males pretending to be or imitating females. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery! The show was fun and quite entertaining!

Transvestite Cabarets

Transvestite (katoey) cabarets are worth a special trip to Thailand to see. Coach loads of foreign tourists, especially Asians, come in to see and take photos with the amazingly feminine transvestites. Sometimes the only thing that gives them away as being 'male' are their deeper voices. Many of the 'katoeys' have already undergone transgender surgery and to all intents and purposes can be considered female.

Cabarets at Pattaya
Pattaya is other place to see fascinating transvestite cabarets. Two famous shows,Tiffany and Alcazar, located on the Second Road, in the North Pattaya.

Bangkok has several places to see this spectacle. Calypso in the Asia Hotel is the biggest and most popular. Mambo, in the old Washington Theater on Sukhumvit Road is another. Several of the gay bars in the Silom Soi 2 and Soi 4 area also offer short cabaret performances in between the regular dance shows. If you've never seen a transvestite show before, go ahead and check it out. You'll be amazed.


Perhaps Bangkok's most famous transvestite cabaret show is at Calypso, located in the Asia Hotel on Phyathai Road.

The Calypso troupe offers an amusing Broadway style drag review, and the Asian 'Spice Girls', five 'girls' who look amazingly like the UK songsters. The shows cater mainly to a tourist audience, but offer a wide range of themes ranging from traditional Thai to 50s New York.

Calypso offers two shows nightly at 8.15 pm and 9.45 pm but with a dual pricing arrangement of 350 baht for Thais, 700 baht for foreigners (price includes a drink). 296 Phyathai Road, Bangkok

Calypso was very fun. At the end they posed to take pics with the tourists and that was a trip too! Raises all kinds of mixed emotions. I just applauded their dedication to their art and beauty... They looked stunning, as the Asian body and face is smaller and more feminine when slim.
