If you want a fun and authentic night of fights go here. The fights here are not the staged fights set for tourists over in venues by the night market. Street food out front, basic stadium and only locals. Excellent fights. You will see many of the fighters from local clubs here. buy tickets when you get there and tuk... More

Great atmosphere, especially once everyone gets a drink down them. :) Prices are fixed and you can either purchase tickets from several shops in the bazaar area or outside the stadium (all prices the same). I would STRONGLY advise you guys to take some bug strap with you as half way through i was being eaten alive. Fights usually start... More

We had a great night ...with all the information of the moves it was helpful as I had never been to boxing before. Think my partner would have liked to see a knockout , but it was fine for me and we got to meet one of the winners for cheering the loudest !

Stadium was really good, the atmosphere was mostly or foreigners. Some of the fights were pretty good but it was pretty obvious that some of the fights were fixed. My thai friend asked about the boxing matches here in Chiang Mai. Many of them here are just small fights and most of the fighters are trying to earn enough recognition... More

We attended the fights here last night, good quality fair dinkum fighting this night. Many knockouts but a couple of fun fake fights also. Yes there are lady bot bars around the perimeter of the seating area, but I didn't feel pressured to but drinks or enter the bars, mind you we left once the fights were over. Not a... More

I have been traveling in Thailand for many years and sorry to say but this is not a very good boxing stadium. The area is very small for the amount of people they pack in before the fight. Drinks are expensive and service is very slow at best. Local bookies are very pushy about wanting you to bet on fights.... More

Have visited this show twice now and enjoyed the kick boxing. Families beware - the ring is surrounded by girly bars who try and attract the men to their bars.

Whilst surrounded by girlie bars the admission fee of 400 baht ( A$13.00) the boxing was great - there were knockouts & a bare knuckle event & a comedy event - a safe environment & suitable for families. Also went to boxing at Patong - 1500 baht & Bangkok 2000 baht ringside but Chiang Mai was the most enjoyable.

We went on Friday night and got tickets through our guesthouse (400 baht tickets and we paid 350 baht). We showed up at 9:30pm (even though it started at 8:30pm) and people said when we got there it had just started anyway. We walked from the night market (10 to 15 minutes) and got a bit lost but all the... More
