Simon Star ladyboy cabaret show in Samkong, Phuket is definitely for everyone including families, couples and all-girl-get-together events. Some people come to see the transgender and transvestite show out of curiosity but many are simply looking for nothing but a fun night out. Either way, the Simon Star Show delivers.
The cabaret show is very entertaining and is put together by a professional team. Without good training, there’s no way that these performers could dance, sing and carry on for over an hour on a nightly basis, usually on very high heels – and still keep a broad smile on their face.

Simon Star Cabaret Show
The most entertaining moment is when a big mama comes out and gets the crowd rolling in the aisles with her funny antics! The choice of music is also quite good. You’ll get to hear many all-time favourites from It’s Raining Men and I Will Survive to quite recent hits such as Run the World (Girls) by Beyoncé together with some Chinese and Korean tunes.
What not to miss
The stage is not very big but that doesn’t stop them from creating magic with good sound systems, lighting and some incredibly colourful stage props (a private helicopter, anyone?)
Let’s face it; not all the actors and actresses are extremely talented and remarkable but the ones that are, make it all worth seeing. To be on stage, they need to rehearse often and it’s no different than hard routine exercise, especially when wearing heavy stage costumes.
But why not go see for yourself? You'll have an intimate experience, getting close-up and personal with the performers at the end of the show. The showgirls will be more than happy to have their photos taken by and with you. Tips are expected, of course.
Good to know about Simon Star Cabaret
The theatre can fit well over 600 people per show. Though it’s a camera-friendly theatre, please avoid using your flash as it will disturb not only the actors but also other members of the audience.
If you're staying in the southern part of the island, you can catch an even more extravagant show in Patong, the Simon Cabaret Show (Simon Star Cabaret’s big sister company). With a bigger theatre and more experience in entertainment, they are known as one of the best shows in Southeast Asia.
Simon Star Cabaret is in the Samkong Area of Phuket City. It is located in the same compound of a venue formally known as Phuket Orchid Garden & Thai Village behind Phuket Rajabhat University. You’ll also find a Thai-Chinese restaurant by the name Phuket Orchid Garden right next to it.
