ust outside Bangkok, there is a popular tourist place called "The Rose Garden" which has a Thai Vilage Culture Show. It was really interesting but for me I think that it is a little expensive (330 baht) and souvenirs there are very expensive. I bought a pair of silk boxer shorts which cost 300 baht! Lots of people go there as part of a one day tour from Bangkok which also includes the Floating Market.
 

Ordination Into The Monkhood
In Thailand, young men usually spend a period of time in the Buddhist Monkhood. Buat Naag is the traditional procession and ceremony for entry into the Monkhood, and is attended by the man's relatives and close friends who make the event into a colorful, joyful and enjoyable occasion as the young man embarks on a period of study and meditation.

Fingernail Dance
The Fingernail Dance is a graceful dance which originated in the North of Thailand and is usually performed as a gesture of greeting and welcome.

Thai Boxing
Thai-style boxing, accompanied by its unique ritual and ceremony, is extremely popular in Thailand. Fighters can use just about everything-elbows, hands, feet, knees. It is an art that demands a high degree of skill and fitness.

Dance From The North East
A mixture of North Eastern dances which collectively express greetings and good luck.

Sword Fighting
A traditional and historical form of combat-for both male and female.
