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.

We popped in during the day when both men and some women were being put through their paces - it certainly looked hard going and taken very seriously - a lot of shouting and encouraging going on. I have seen a real Thai boxing tournament...More

We are training Muay Thai boxing and our friends from the gym were fighting. Awesome experience! Not the biggest stadium but good seats wherever you were sitting.

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

Having read all the reviews about the boxing in Chiang Mai, we really didn't expect much. Turns out it was far more entertaining than we expected. That being said the fighting isn't all that good, particularly the early bouts, but the experience and skill of...More

This was an Ok experience. Most of the fighters were teenagers. No one over 22 or 23. It was still some degree of fun, until we watched the main event turn into a betting scam. The last bout was a between a champion and a...More
