Located 91 miles (147 kilometers) southeast of Bangkok, the city of Pattaya has emerged as one of Thailand’s most popular beach resorts, and for good reason. Here are some of the area’s top beaches to check out while you’re there.

It’s worth booking tickets ahead of time for the Colosseum show to ensure your choice of performance and seating. Prices are at the top end for Pattaya, and online booking often works out cheaper than paying cash at the desk. The theater offers around 600 “deluxe” (standard) seats and around 400 VIP seats. The VIP seats are closer to the stage, but all seats offer unobstructed views. Each of the three nightly shows lasts around an hour.
Things to Know Before You Go
The Colosseum is a great choice for travelers who love cabaret and burlesque but are looking for something a little less risqué.
Performers are often available for photos after the show. Expect to pay a small, cash fee for pictures.
Performances are lip-synched, not live.
The Colosseum Pattaya is wheelchair-friendly, with both elevators and ramps.
How to Get There
The Colosseum is located a little way south of downtown Pattaya, about 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) from Walking Street. It’s off the main “baht bus” (covered-pickup-truck) routes, so many travelers opt to book tickets that include hotel transfers and enable them to enjoy a drink at the bar.
When to Get There
The Colosseum operates in the evening only, with three nightly shows spread out through the evening. It’s at its busiest on weekends, which can add energy to the experience.
What Cabaret Should I See in Pattaya?
A transgender cabaret show is an essential item on many travelers’ Pattaya bucket lists. And while the full range of R-rated performances is available on Walking Street, there are three main choices for theatrical cabaret. The Colosseum is the newest theater of the three. Alcazar Cabaret, established in 1981, offers 1,200 seats, while Tiffany’s dates all the way back to 1974.
