If you like the fast paced action of boxing you'll love Muay Thai! These guys are quick and strong! Thursday night at Ratchadamnoen Stadium is the time to go. Don't go on Sunday as they don't have good fighters then. If you are a foreigner you will be bothered by the touts that stand outside the stadium and tell you all seats are sold out except for the Ringside seats they have for sale. Unless you want a Ringside seat just walk up to the counter and buy a ticket. I like the 220 baht seats myself You get a great view of the fight and you can watch all that is happening in the stadium. Heavy Betting goes on for the Heavy Weight fights!! In March when me and my son went we got to witness a great night of Boxing!! Including one match where the boxers training came into the ring to fight his own guy after he lost. He must have bet BIG on his guy. He just went crazy! The police had to come in and haul him away! He was allowed back in under escort and paid the guy he bet with a Huge pile of money. Make sure you can cover any bets you make!
