We went out to see Muay Thai on a Saturday night, figuring it'd be better than a Tuesday. Although, in retrospect, probably every day is a good day for Muay Thai.
We did hear that the "local" stadium is more authentic, but thought "screw it,...More
Had an enjoyable evening at Thapae Stadium watching six different Muay Thai fights. Two with ladies and four with guys. Like some other reviews I can confirm that the fights started rather slow with younger kids and then picked up during the evening. Drink prices...More
Watching Muay Thai kickboxing at the Chiang Mai Thapae Boxing Stadium was our last outing here and it was an exciting way to end our trip. We were concerned about all the negative reviews claiming fixed and/or fake fights but by the second match it...More
This is a very interesting stadium located next to the Thapae Gate. It caters primarily to the backpackers. The tickets prices range from 400-600 Bahts. The audience comprises mostly of foreigners. There are some cabaret shows in addition to Muay Thai Boxing competitions. Shows are...More
We sat at the ringside area which offered a very good view of the matches on stage. Serious players; first match was between kids who were real fighters. There were also ladies and teenagers' matches. Good glimpse of Thai boxing and indeed very cheap tickets....More

Went for a night of Muay Thai at The Thapae Stadium, and was pleasantly surprised. It was an a fun night watching 7 matches of fights. Definitely keeps the crowd entertained, a must visit while visiting Chiang Mai.

Fixed fight, expensive, no thaï people only tourists... and the fighters are just kids! Around 12yo to 16yo.
The speaker is a white man... he seems to be in charge of this mascarade.
A place to avoid for sure, except if there's no catch show...More
Alot of 1 star reviews saying this venue stages fights. Although this may be true on other night the event I saw definatley wasnt staged. 7 fights including a thai blindfolded fight which is worth a watch. Good price, friendly enough staff, solid evening :)
