    Hi all

    I've heard allot of recommendations to see a Muay Thai event when visiting Thailand. From what i can find, the price of a ticket can range up to $60 in Bangkok. Does anyone know of anywhere else in Thailand where I can see a competitive fight for cheaper, or is it a case of you get what you pay for?

    I am also travelling to Cambodia and Vietnam are there any alternative Mixed Martial arts events in any of these Countries?

    Any advise would be appreciated

    Cheers
    Ste.

    you can likly see it in about any Thai provincial town. BKK charges specific tourist prices in its 2 rinks (note that Lumpini is NOT anymore on Ram IV=-moved to faraway Ram Indira or nearby- any taxi will know and also when matches are on).
    For free: daft easy-even just 6 mins from KSR there is a rink where when school is out some social minded ex-boxer arranges for lessons for schoolkids. or the (paid for by the trainees) boxing lessons in the teach MT just off KSR/chakrapongse-behind those Israeli joints.

    You could check out the free Muay Thai at Channel 7 Studios in Bangkok on Sundays, assuming it's still going on. Here's some more information.

    Three stadiums in Chiang Mai (Thaphae, Loy Kroh, and Galare) have muay thai fights every night and charge 400 baht for the evening (600b ringside) This involves about eight fights of five rounds (or until someone gets knocked out) about 9pm-midnight. Most of the fights are serious, but there is usually some comic relief in the form of "blind boxing" (four guys get blindfolded then beat on each other, and the ref). Anyway it's a good entertaining evening out. Pickup trucks with loudspeakers drive around town every day announcing tonight's boxing and guys on motorbikes circulate flyers. You can buy tickets at the door or through an agent.

    Im so glad you finished that off with the fact there are blind folded, rather than just blind lol.

    Thanks for the info. I will be skipping muay thai in bangkok.
