Reggae Bar

Boxing and boozing

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located in the heart of Ton Sai village lies the Reggae Bar, but reggae is far from the main attraction.

Reggae Bar is famous for its muay Thai boxing ring, which sits at the centre of the bar and hosts regular exhibition events and occasional real fights. What makes it famous though is on any given night tourists are invited to get in the ring and fight for the grand prize of two free buckets for his or her table. (A bucket, for those not in the know, is a bottle of booze poured into, well, a bucket, with mixers and ice, to be communally slurped-up with straws.)

For those who fancy their chances in the ring, bear in mind that getting into any boxing ring when drunk is very, very, very, stupid. Also be aware that medical facilities on Ko Phi Phi are basic at the best of times.

Drinks are very expensive with a large Beer Chang going for 200 baht — so most drink buckets (which start at 120 baht at the door).
