Muay Thai Fight in Bangkok


Muay Thai Fight
Bangkok

Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) is a true martial art. If you love boxing and fighting, an experience to see a real fight in the stadium will make up your trip in Bangkok. The leading Muay Thai stadiums and the biggest fights are in Bangkok. Bangkok's two leading Muay Thai stadiums are Lumpini Stadium and Ratchadamnoen Stadium.

Lumpini Stadium
Fights at Lumpini are regarded as being slightly better than those at Ratchadamnoen, although for the novice it would be extremely difficult to tell the difference. It is also probably the more famous of the two stadiums. The stadium opened in 1956 to promote Thai boxing both in Thailand and abroad. Many non-Thai fighters compete here, and as the interest in the sport continues to explode, the stadium these days has much more of an international feel about it. It is one of the few places in Thailand where betting is permitted.

Details: Tickets are priced from 500 Baht to 1,500 Baht depending on the fight, the fighters, and whether you sit ringside. Fights take place Tuesday and Friday from 06:30 p.m., Saturday afternoons 05:00 p.m. - 08:00 p.m., and Saturday nights from 08:30 p.m.
Address: Lumpini Stadium Rama IV Road, Bangkok
Tel: +66 2252 8765, +66 2251 4303, +66 2253 7702, +66 2253 7940

How to get there: The nearest BTS to Lumpini Stadium is Sala Daeng station and the nearest MRT is Lumpini station. From both it will cost around 50 Baht to get a taxi down Rama IV Road to the stadium.

Ratchadamnoen Stadium
In 1941 Ratchadamnoen became the first Muay Thai stadium in Bangkok, although construction of the site was not completed until after the Second World War (the first match taking place in 1945). The rules and regulations used in the modern sport were established at this stadium. Like Lumpini, Ratchadamnoen stadium now sees a lot of western fighters involved in the sport and westerners consistently make up reasonable numbers in the audience.

Details: Ratchadamnoen Stadium is open Monday and Wednesday at 06:00 p.m., Thursday at 05:00 p.m. and 09:00 p.m., and Sunday at 04:00 p.m. and 08:00 p.m. Admission is 1,000 Baht to 2,000 Baht depending on the fight, the fighters, and whether you sit ringside.
Tel: +66 2281 4205, +66 2280 1084

How to get there: Ratchadamnoen Stadium is on Ratchadamnoen Nok Avenue. The most convenient way to get there is to use Tuk Tuk or Taxi.
