My friends and I went here to watch a night of Muay Thai. We had VIP front row seats for only about 1000 and something baht. There were about 10 fights. You could hear every elbow and knee connecting!
The floor seats were mostly occupied by foreigners while the second and third floor areas were mostly locals betting on the fights. Watching them make hand signals, screaming and placing bets was almost as interesting as the fights!
The stadium was like something out of movie and is one of the largest stadiums for Muay Thai in Thailand. Not glamorous like the Vegas stadiums, but with tons of character. I could totally imagine this being the place some future badass fighter got his start from.
Afterwards, all the floor seat people got to meet the champion of the title fight and take pictures. It was an exhilarating experience!
