While Bangkok, fondly known as the “Big Mango” offers an eclectic selection of dining venues and experiences, few or any can truly rival the unique and original concept of the renown Joe Louis Puppet Theater and Restaurant which is located at Asiatique the Riverfront. This restaurant not only offers an authentic array of traditional Thai cuisine for the taste buds but also a unique display for one of the treasured lost art of puppetry in Thailand.

Conveniently located at the front entrance of Asiatique the Riverfront, it is hard to miss with its contemporary design style and a blend between a casual and fine dining ambiance. There are various puppets on display at the counter to give a hint of what is to come as part of your dining experience. The upper level of the restaurant is making way for a new puppet theater for those who only want to watch the show but at the moment any full length performance is only available by special invitation at private performances.

The Joe Louis Puppet Theater and Restaurant started out as atraditional Thai puppet outfit that was passed from several generations back. It is now considered one of the national treasures of Thailand and under the patronage of HM Queen Sirikit of Thailand to revive this ancient traditional art form. This puppet troupe has won numerous international awards and accolades forbest puppetry performances and is recognized as a master craft in Thailand. Major performances are only available for private functions but you can get a glimpse of these puppets during a dinner performance at their restaurant. Each puppet requires at least 3 performers to manipulate the intricate movements of the puppet.

Haad Tien Koh Larn Pattaya Thailand

Haad Tien Koh Larn Pattaya Thailand Discover Thailand

Haad Tiien Koh Larn

 

Haad Tien Koh Larn Pattaya Thailand. Tien Beach is a mid sized beach here on the island. In as far as blue ocean and white sand this is the best. This beach has many restaurants and souvenir shops that are a little more upscale than at the other beaches, but still, has the flavor of Thailand. From what I have been told, this is a year round beach, with little fluctuation of tourist from season to season. The atmosphere here, well seems very relaxed and quiet. The people that visit here seem to come in smaller groups and there for not as much chatter that you would find amongst larger groups. Tien Beach is accessible by speedboat, charter and local taxi. When coming by taxi there is a short walk of about five minutes from the drop off point, there are no roads to this beach. The sea is blue and the sand is white so what more can you ask  for on a beach holiday?

Getting around

There are songthaews which meet every ferry at Koh Laan, and will take you to the beaches. Also you can hire bikes and motorbikes. The songteow cost to the beaches is usually B30, but further beaches cost a little more. They only run regularly from about 10am, so if you want to go earlier, you will need to treat them as a private hire. To get to the songteow start place, turn left from the pier, walk past the 7-11 on your left and a couple of hundred metres further along on your left is where they are.
