Khon is Thailand's classical masked dance that is regarded as one of the most refined of performing arts. It was originally limited to the royal court.

Performances are extremely expensive to produce, requiring lavish costumes, elaborate masks and headgear, and stage accessories that require highly skilled craftsmen to create. The scenes performed in the traditional Khon are taken from the Ramakien, a series of significant episodes in Thai literature based on the Indian epic of classical mythology the Ramayana that greatly influenced the literature of almost all nations in Southeast Asia.

Near to the theater where they show this mask show, there are Giant Swing and Wat Suthat.
