Great once you get inside
Dec 2019 • Solo
I am a little torn in this review since I had a great time at the fights. My only real complaint about this venue is when you arrive and are purposely deceived by sales staff trying to get you to pay for vip seating. My cab driver called ahead without my permission to let his contact know he had someone without a ticket. I was greeted immediately after stepping out of the cab by a lady with a badge you told me I could only buy tickets from her. When I pointed to the box office window, she told me it was only for online purchases and said I had to show her my receipt to stand in line. She got very aggressive and even started yelling at me. Turns out you can stand in line to buy the lower priced tickets. They are higher up, but I found them perfectly acceptable. The vip seats were obviously oversold and people who paid twice as much were sitting in chairs all the way out the door. I paid $1000 for the least expensive seats at the box office and bought a nice t shirt for 500 baht and was happy with my decision. The fights were great and the fighters were excellent. I really enjoyed myself once I was inside. The t shirt was well made too and I have a nice souvenir. Please be aware of the ticket sales people. It’s a shame that a sport built around honor and respect does not employ sales representatives who have those same values.

Great Local Experience
Feb 2019 • Couples
Muay Thai is a huge cultural aspect of Thailand and a visit to watch these fighters was a great evening out.

The atmosphere was fantastic with the locals shouting, bantering and cheering on the fighters was electric. Lots of hand gestures which looked like some kind of betting code but I’m not sure.

There are a number of ticket types, from the local standing areas (not many non-locals seem to go for this option buts perfectly safe) to Ringside.

We opted for the Club Seats, which I think are better than rings ideas you sit at the same eye level as the fighters, whereas Ringside is below the ring level and more expensive.

It’s not cheap, we paid about USD$60 for Club seats.

And I’m sure non-locals get charged more than locals - but heck it up and grab the atmosphere.

Beer also more expensive inside at Bht150 a pint but it does get served to you at your seat.

We went on a Monday, which is quieter than end of week or weekends but it was still great.

Outside the stadium is some local street food vendors serving some tasty and cheap Thai foods.

All in all, a great evening and worth a visit.

Gonna see to believe..

1) once I exit out of my taxi, I’m greeted by their usher: ‘welcome to Rajadamnoen stadium, have you bought your ticket?’
2) upon realising that I bought my ticket online (I bought through klook to enjoy abt 10% off), I’m guided to e counter to redeem my tickets.
3) staffs are around to guide me to my exact entrance.
4) upon entry, security are around to check my bags, water is not allowed in the stadium.
5) another usher is in there to guide me where are the empty seats are.
6) gonna admit, I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. That night I got 10 fights to watch, match gets better (in terms of fighter’s level & technique as the night goes on).
7) from my attached pictures, 1 side have locals screaming their lungs off after placing their bets, e other side have fighters fighting for their life.
8) staffs walk around frequently to take your orders for snacks or a glass of beer.

In conclusion: place is probably managed. Plus point is I got to see a KO live! Felt sorry for the guy who got KO but that made my day :p
Better to purchase 2nd class tickets as 3rd class, there’s a barrier over thus your view will be slightly blocked. & with locals mostly occupying that class, atmosphere will get rowdy when the fight gets intense.

Great Muay Thai Fights
Nov 2017 • Couples
We really had a lot of fun on a Sunday night for the Muay Thai fights. They start at 6:30 and lasted until 9:30. There were 2-3 of the 9 fights that had younger guys (children about 8-11 years old), but they also had some older/stronger fighters. It was very neat to watch and experience. We paid 2,000 B per ticket for ring side seats, which is pretty expensive in my opinion. I️ understand that’s the going rate, but it was worth it. While we enjoyed the seats and being waited on, I️ think the 2nd level would have been just fine. They served beer 150B for a big beer as well as water/soda/hot dogs. We picked this stadium since it is closer to town and where we were. We got a quick uber to Khao San road after. We would go again as well as recommended it.

Muay Thai
Jan 2017 • Friends
WOW....what a terrific place to go and enjoy some REAL Thai fighting. The waiters were attentive, the fights were great, and it was cheap.
I did have some stupid lady in front of me who was TRASHED, and she spilled her beer all over me. We got moved up to the VIP section after that. (take that you intoxicated tourist!) lol. Like UFC.....this is a no-brainer.

Very good once we got there
Feb 2017 • Couples
We left our hotel which is 11km away from the stadium around 17:45 (5:45pm) and took a taxi since you cant go there by the skytrain. It said that would take like 20-30 minutes so wasn't bad. Well we ended up being in the taxi for 2,5 hours. The traffic was insane and the taxi driver took us to Lumpeene stadium which is a different boxing stadium, even though we said the name of rajadamnurn so many times and I even showed the address to him from my phone. We got there around 8 pm and the best games had just started. We had also bought our tickets online before the game for the ringside seats which are the best and cost 2000BT. I thought that it was quite expensive, but totally worth it and in the end wouldn't have wanted to sit anywhere else. The feeling was so great at the stadium and I can just recommend it to everyone! So it was a really good experience, though I wish I had come there earlier..

Muai Thai Night
Dec 2016 • Couples
It was recommended to us from a friend and so we took the chance that it might be another one of the staged fights that take place here in Thailand. To our surprise it was action packed and certainly felt real enough. We saw a couple of knockouts and a some serious bouts of aggression. There is of course the usual 'farang' price to pay but you can haggle. As long as you know it's fine I guess. Beer is served to your seat and is at tourist prices too. A good night out in general I have to say. Worth the visit.

Muay Thai fans must go!

Definitely the temple of Muay Thai.
If you love this sport go here once. Hotels are usually selling over expensive VIP tickets for 2000 Baht. But Go on weekends for bigger matches.

Mediocre event
Feb 2014 • Couples
A Thai boxing event was on my list of must do's while in Thailand. It was the last night in Bangkok and there was a fight scheduled so we made our way across town to the Stadium. A little unnerving to see more protests right outside and a few days after our visit a grenade was tossed into the camp.
Anyway, getting there was no big deal (taxi) and once we arrived a "greeter" brought us to purchase tickets then brought us to our seats. It was not a large crowd and there was a clear divide between the western tourists and the locals. The foreigners were all at ringside whereas the locals were up higher, behind a wire fence. Beer and snacks were brought to your seat and generally the whole production was pretty good. The fighters were young and small but that made their strikes no less vicious. I think 4 fighters were taken out on stretchers.
It was something to watch, but cannot say it was great value for money.
