  Hey Get in the Ring!!
by Jmill42

Muay Thai ia the National sport of Thailand, and is heavily loaded with traditional dances, pre-fight rituals, and knees to the gut. I mean these guys beat the hell out of each other. You knee me in the ribs??? Once??? I'm going down like a ton of bricks!!! And they knee each other ahundred times a round! Insane!! But, it is really entertaining!! A must see for any sport fan.

There are 3 different levels of seating and cost. The nosebleed, the middle and ringside. I got the middle priced, and it was absolutely fine. You have to sit behind a chain link fence, but that kind of adds to its hard-core appeal! Cost for the mid-level seats were about 400 Baht.

For that, you get 10 matches!! Each about 3 rounds, unless you get a knock out... which I did. Stretcher and everything.

There are two stadiums, but I went to the Ratchadamnoen Stadium. It has all the feel of Bangkok. You will see what I mean when you are waiting outside for a few minutes to finish your drink and there are 100's of shady looking Thai characters around. ALL of them gamble inside, and the action in the stands is almost as entertaining as the fight within the ring!
