It is notable for its high number of mosaic floors. Also, marble and bronze statues have been found. The site was settled already in the 3rd century BC, before it was annexed by the Romans in about 40 AD. It has a favourable location, due to fertile grounds, for the cultivation of olives. At its heyday, the city probably had 20.000 inhabitants. Most of its large monuments such as the triumphal arch and capitol date from the 2nd and 3rd century AD. Volubilis has been declared by Unesco a World Heritage Site. less

The Traditional Thai Puppet Theater was founded by Sakorn Yangkhiawsod, known as Joe Louis, the last Grand master of the art. There are 3 types of theatrical styles which involve dancing and singing and are comparable in style and form to the 18th century ballet performed at Versailles. Each puppet is controlled by 3 puppeteers who perform on stage in synchronization with the puppet. The Joe Louis Theater remains the true guardian of this vanishing art form. www.thaipuppet.com Hosted by Sunida Thirasak, a Bangkok native who presently lives in New York. less
