“Tourist trap!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Don't even bother with this farce!
Fights are staged and the price is ridiculous.
There are better and cheaper alternatives available

“Authentic and entertaining, not for the faint of heart”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2012

This isn't WWF, it's the real thing. I trained in the martial arts for ten years and I know the difference. All the fights I saw were real, violent and often bloody. -- there were two knockouts. There were a handful of fights that were clearly unbalanced, technique and skill varied wildly, but everyone showed authentic fighting spirit. I got mid-range seats and while I wasn't ringside or sitting in a comfy couch I got my money's worth. They gave away a free polo shirt the night I was there. I didn't arrange for a trip back and was massively gouged by a local driver. Don't make my mistake.

“Tourist attraction - but worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2012

Obviously aimed at the tourists with only half the fights being realistic. One guy got fairly injured so there are some authentic fights. If you haven't been to one, then it can be interesting especially to be able to see the thai boxing technique.

“Excellent entertainment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

Very good & genuine boxing with some local audience. A great way to spend a couple of hours on a Friday night. Just remember to organize a pick up for afterwards, not too many taxis in the area.
