Thai Boxing (Muay Thai)
By Viator, July 2013
As Chiang Mai is home to two boxing stadiums with multiple events per week, it’s the perfect place to cross seeing an authentic Muay Thai match off your Thailand to-do list. Each event typically consists of eight fights and the boxers may be Thai or foreigners from a local muay Thai training camp. The fights are accompanied by traditional music called sarama that speeds up as the fight intensifies.
