Where to start... Sumalee can't be beat. I've trained at six different Muay Thai gyms and this was easily the best experience I've had so far. The training was brutally awesome. The food was delicious and satisfying. Location was great, accommodation was even better, and the staff are wonderful human beings. See the break down below... Training- The have 6... More

Although not situated far from a big, trafficked road, the gym itself is quiet and the morning running route takes you out in the green, running next to a small river with water buffalos. The food at the gym was good, but I preferred to eat out and I was surprised to find... More
