Ratchadamnoen Stadium

In the Ring

These days, Muay Thai, aka Thai boxing, is among the best-known forms of martial arts in the world, and Ratchadamnoen Stadium is one of the leading places in Bangkok to see it go down in its homeland. Established in the 1940s, this is the country's oldest stadium for its national sport. A pricier ringside seat here gives you the full experience of Muay Thai, which has many parallels with Western-style boxing but also some significant differences--not least the brawlers' use of not just fists but also elbows, knees, and feet. (They call it the "art of the eight limbs.") An evening's worth of high-kicking matches at Ratchadamnoen Stadium is Bangkok at its most thrilling.

Utrip Tips

* Make sure you buy your tickets from the official counter (or ahead online here) rather than from a scalper outside the stadium.
