The list of things to do in Ratchadapisek is a testament to the area’s goal to become a hub for art and cultural activity in Bangkok. Cultural venues, galleries and museums often put on exhibitions and activities showcasing local music, sculpture, poetry, painting, performing arts, architecture and photography.

    The modern Thailand Cultural Center is where Thai and foreign performing arts and cultural shows take place year-round. Nearby is Siam Niramit, a theatre occupying a purpose-built 2,000-seat complex. Its cultural performance is an extravagant 80-minute romp through Thai history, customs and culture. It's an extremely lavish affair, with ornate stage sets, spectacular costumes, special effects and a cast of hundreds.
