Paris Follies Cabaret is probably the bawdiest and most risqué of the Koh Samui cabaret shows, featuring the buxomest dancers wearing the most revealing costumes. They star in a 1-hour show filled with humour and exciting dance routines.

The show at Paris Follies features music from (and impersonations of) Whitney Houston, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Britney Spears and more – all performed by transgender artists. If you happen to be in the front row, you’ll need to have a healthy sense of humour because you can expect to become part of the show, including being invited to jump up on stage and dance.

Shows at Paris Follies

There are 3 shows every night, starting at 8.30 pm, 9.30 pm, and 11 pm. A cocktail purchase grants you free entry to see the show. Naturally, these are priced quite expensively, above the 350-baht mark.

The small side-road leading up to the venue is very easy to find, being between Soi Bar Solo and Soi Green Mango on Chaweng Beach Road. It has a giant illuminated image of the Eiffel Tower along one wall and often a few of the glamorously dressed dancers by the street’s entrance, hoping to entice passersby.
