I talked about muay thai before and how it was the main reason I went to Thailand. For 2000 baht ($56US) you can get a front row seat at one of the many arenas that dot Thailand. You find mostly foreigners in the front row seats. The Thai generally sit in the bleachers that cost 800 baht ($23US)
You also get to meet the fighters afterward and take pictures.
There are usually 10-12 matches with (5) three minute rounds, with featherweight all the way up to heavyweight classes, just like you find in boxing.
What I did not know or expect, is that when the grown folks are done trying to knock each others blocks off, the youngsters come out and do it too!
