The performers showcased at River Kwai Resotel originate from our sister hotel in Kanchanaburi, River Kwai Jungle Rafts, where the dance is traditionally taught. What distinguishes the Cultural Mon Dance Show at River Kwai Jungle Rafts resort is its genuine and enduring heritage, passed down through generations. Our dancers are members of the Mon Villagers community, guided by a master who experienced the era when Mon dance thrived across Myanmar. Today, witnessing such performances is a rarity.
