Before leaving Thailand, make sure to take in a muay Thai (Thai kick boxing) match. Kawila Boxing Stadium is a great place to see such a show and the venue is open to people of all ages.

I want with a friend who enjoys Muay Thai fighting and expected to see the fighters go through the motions and be somewhat fake. I was wrong. The fights were quite real and intense. I truly enjoyed the battles which were enjoyable as a spectator....More

The days change every week all depending on if the fighters are ready for a bout. The best thing to do would be to ask your Hotel/Hostel as they should have a timetable of the scheduled fights that week (as well as... More
