In Phuket, the 2 most famous cabarets include transgender performers in their show. Actually, transvestites are well accepted in Thai’s society. In Thailand, they are called katoey, or ladyboy.
The oldest cabaret in Phuket is Simon Cabaret. It was opened back in 1991 and since then have been the market leader with shows including extravagant costumes, international and traditional acts, and glamorous transgender dancers.
A more recent cabaret with no less than 950 seats, two restaurants and a brewery has recently opened its doors in Kathu in a large ship-like building. Aphrodite Cabaret provides a colorful entertainment very similar to Simon Cabaret, and as such, there is not a single lady on stage as dancers and performers all are ladyboys.
