Ladyboys Show, Chiang Rai Night Market

Some travel guide authors don’t give high scores to Chiang Rai. Chiang Rai, long eclipsed by Chiang Mai, has fewer attractions. Its wats are not as magnificent as those in Chiang Mai, and its night market is smaller.

I liked Chiang Rai because of its compactness – I could walk across the town. (Backpackers like to walk, which is why we carry backpacks rather than shoulder bags in the first place.) I also enjoyed the stage performance in the night market. On Jan 8, 2007, I watched traditional Northern Thai dancing in the night market. On Jan 11, the night market invited a couple of ladyboys, or transvestites, to perform there.

There were two stages in the night market. The ladyboys shuttled between them, and I followed them like a paparazzi

By the way, performance of the ladyboys was fantastic


  1. How to differentiate? Or u mean all of them WERE men?

  2. Strong,
    Not sure if we can call them men, but they still have men's voice.

    I took their picture at the back stage (not shown here), and one of them said, "Thank you." From that I was sure they were transvestites.

  3. chew seem like very enjoy lor..

  4. Nice pictures - thanks for sharing them. In fact, with their fine skin tone and nice features, some of them really put the ladies to shame. Unfortunately, what give them away are their voice and the Adam's apple.

    Khengsiong, thanks for dropping by. You have a nice blog.

  5. izzuo,
    Yeah, I enjoyed the show.

    Adam's apple can be removed through surgery. In fact, most of them have done so.

  6. I didn't know that. Any idea what effect that would have? A softer, more feminine voice?

  7. Happysurfer,
    I guess their voice remain the same after surgery, but I can't confirm on this.
