There is simply no better place to watch Thai boxing than in Bangkok at one of the two city boxing stadiums: Rajdamnoen Stadium or Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. You will arrive at the arena by air-conditioned private vehicle and be seated with your guide in a VIP area for a premium view of the ring. Enjoy the electric atmosphere inside as professionals fight, punch and kick their way to the top!
The ancient art developed in Ayutthaya five centuries ago, and many of the techniques are still practiced today. Muay Thai is often called the 'art of the eight limbs' because the master kickboxers can make contact with their hands, shins, elbows and knees. For years, fighters competed with no safety gear, but nowadays they duke it out with gloves on.
You quickly realize those gloves are simply a formality as the fighters punch, jab and kick each other just a few feet away from your seat. Your knowledgeable guide helps you understand the match each step of the way. You might still be asking questions about the moves you saw as your guide drops you at your hotel late in the evening via private vehicle!
It should be noted that the tour duration might vary, depending on how long each fight takes. Spectators under 18 years of age are not permitted.
