We purchased the top tickets which were worth it. Great fun night, the place isn't too big, drink service to the table which was good. It was great watching the local crowd getting right into it.
Only downfall was the toilets - not that flash!!! but apart from that it was a good laugh.

Booked three training sessions with them.
Very friendly and family run place.
They pick up and drop off which was nice.
I had never boxed and really enjoyed the training.
Our two trainers were pro and adapted to my level.
Great place to do something different while in Hua Hin.

Just ask for Grand Market or Grand Hotel. From main road (Thanon Phedkasem) go in direction of the Grand Hotel. The boxing arena is on the left between little shops. Boxing is currenrly on Fridays.

We were very disappointed after coming into Hua hin especially for the boxing, to find the gym closed and no body there. We went on a Saturday night and Tuesday....... the advertising truck was parked down the soi a bit but no one seemed to know anything. We have been several times before in June and thought it would definitely be busier in February.
Is this gym now closed for boxing events and just open for training etc??
Will have another look when back in Hua hin just in case, as we have had some really good nights here.

I visited Thailand for six or seven weeks while backpacking back in '96. Back then I didn't come anywhere near a Thai Boxing arena, solely because I find martial arts boring.

Well, there is a huge difference between watching a sport on TV and experiencing the live thing.

I can't tell what the actual standard of muay thai is in Thai Boxing Garden, it could be quite close to the top series or it could be from the bottom of the 9th division - Or somewhere in between mixed with a little of both?

What I can tell you is that it is entertaining. Some fights are between more inexperienced fighters, and some has been at it for a while.

I've seen some reviews (elsewhere) where someone states it's fake. I will say this, if it's fake, they are quite good actors at least.
We saw blood, people being knocked out and some had taken so significantly a beating that they had to be attended to afterwards.

We went twice and enjoyed it both times.

I suggest you don't get the cheapest seats as that will put you on the floor with not the best of views.
Seats are either 600, 700 or 800 baht. Just try and get the 700 or 800 baht seats. There's a drink included in the price (water, beer, soda) and during the matches kids will run around with a menu asking if you want more.

I get the feeling this is very much a "local place", but for me that only ads to the experience.

Fight nights are every Tuesday and Saturday, but maybe check ahead. We wanted to go a third time but when we got there the place was empty and a neighbor told us that there was no boxing that evening.

First match is set to start at 21:00 and there are five matches consisting of five rounds each. If all matches goes to full time, expect to be hear till around 23:15 +/-.
If one or more matches are cut short due to KO, then you can obviously expect to leave earlier.

After each match the fighters will do the rounds asking the audience for a little money. For this purpose you should remember to bring extra notes. You can give 20baht to one fighter per match, or you can give 100baht to each fighter in all matches, that up to you.
You don't have to, but my guess is you'll want to.
