Today we had a very busy day. After a quick breakfast we travlled around to all the tour companies and booked ourselves seats at a cabaret for tonight. We had lunch and spent the afternoon exploring by ourselves. I went shopping but held off on buying anything.
After a delicious dinner of Thai fried noodles and gravy we headed of in a bus to the famous Simon Cabaret. Simon Cabaret is a drag show but it is so much more than that. We had VIP seats and were so close to the stage. The show was a fantastic spectacle and parts of it made me burst out laughing. Some of the drag queens were completely feminine - couldn't tell them apart from real women, however some were still quite masculine. The show was great and i'm sure will prove to be a highlight of the trip.
When we got back from the show the festival was still going so we stayed out for a while longer. We were offered a chance to see a 'ping-pong' show but we had to decline! Finally we made our way back to the hotel for a well needed rest.
