THINGS TO DO IN BANGKOK by Mr.Sims - Part II
After Eating Pad thai and tasting frozen beers in things to do in Bangkok – Part I, there are 2 more things that you shouldn't be missed in Bangkok. We will bring you to the most memorable experiences that you’ll never forget in Bangkok. Check it out!
1. Thai Boxing (aka Muay Thai)
If you're a movie fan and ever watched "Tom Yum Goong", you would understand the excitement of watching Thai martial arts or Muay Thai. The film was distributed as “The Protector” in the United States, as “Warrior King” in the United Kingdom, as “Thai Dragon” in Spain, as “Revenge of the Warrior” in Germany, and as “Honor of the Dragon” in Russia and CIS countries.
But how watching on the screen could be compared with watching it live! In Bangkok, you can watch the real fight live on stage. Watching the real fight will not only pump up your adrenaline, but also give you an unforgettable experience. Shouting on the ringside, you will be charmed by Thai styled martial arts. Thai boxing is fun to watch. Get a seat on the ringside and enjoy the watch!
The most famous stage is at Rajadamnern Stadium. Located on Rajadamnern Road, the stadium opens every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday. Going there is convenient as most taxi drivers know its location (even easier if you use navigation application on your phone so you could know exactly where to go).
