Arts of Thailand

Thailand Arts have unique forms and variations. The visitor to Thailand has the rare opportunity to witness exquisite and unique forms of artistic expression. Traditional Thailand arts can be seen in museums and temples, palaces and theaters, or in the living culture and day-to-day
activities of the Thai people themselves. Thailand’s many classical art forms, famous for their elegance and gentility, have their roots firmly planted in Buddhist traditions.

Thailand arts incorporate Thai music, Thai dance and Thai paintings. Exotic by Western standards, Thai music combines the excitement of a boxing match with the serenity of romantic drama. With a surprising depth and subtlety of feeling, Thai music is worth the effort it takes to fully appreciate.

Simply stated yet often refined among the Thailand arts, Thailand’s dramatic arts are a clear expression of the daily cycle of birth, death and the day to day life of people who live by the land and the sea. With their delicate rich colors and lively details, mural paintings are a feast for the eyes. They are also an enlightening form of education for all people interested in Buddhism and the Thai way of life.
