“Better than Lumpinee Stadium”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Lumpinee Stadium was good, but I enjoyed Rajadmnern a lot more. The fights were great, and it was great going into the back and flashing some money at the fighters and giving them a little bonus if they won. Very laid back, the cage that separates the ringside seats from the regular seats adds a unique sense of where you are at. Muay Thai at it's fines, definitely a must if you are in Thailand. If you have to chose between Rajadmnern and Lumpinee, then pick Rajadmnern. Also after the fights go eat some of the best chicken you will ever eat right next to the stadium (Go right when you exit the stadium entrance).

“Thai Boxing - no need to join tour”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Rajadamnern Stadium, having nearly 70 years history, is located in a spot not too far away from Khao Shan Road or the Grand Palace. Or, it is better to take a taxi. You may buy ticket by yourself and there is no need to buy through travel agency.

There are English speaking staffs, to introduce everything to you. No need to worry about communication. But to be tourist, you have to pay higher ticket price than the locals.

“Great place to watch Muay Thai with Air Con”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

If you travel around on the BTS i suggest you go to Ratchathewi Station and take tuktuk or taxi to the stadium.
I went there from China Town and there was so much traffic.
Some suggest going from the National Stadium... up to you.
When i arrived i was greeted by a sales staff who politely showded my the stadium and the ring side seats. 2000baht.
I expected this so i paid her and chose my seat. Its starts to get busy at 6 and by 630 the first fight starts.
I had 9 fights that night and the ring side seat was great.
Pity that half way they let a big tall person sit in the front seat and you know what?! all views were gone.
I eventually got up and sat on the high seats which were very hard and uncomfortable but i didnt come all this way to see the guys head.
anyway the different seat also gave me a different view of the fights as it was not as close.
There are lots of snacks and drinks there and sometimes the staff would take orders and bring you the food.
i ordered myself .
depends on the fights it would finish about 10pm.
If there are any knock outs there sooner but that is rare as they are all highly trained.
When you finish you must not take a taxi or tuk tuk from outside.
What i done was walk down the road after all the cars are parked and i crossed the road.
There is a bus stop there where it is lit up and i hailed a taxi who took me to the BTS station. Then from there i went straight to my hotel.

“Once in a lifetime experience...”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Yes, everyone else who reviewed before me is correct. Some may say it's a ripoff, but honestly, the seats directly beside the ring are actually great. I preferred those seats to the seats in the stands. The gambling, betting, and noise would have been too much to be right in the middle of, but it was definitely something to see! The fights were awesome, complete with flying blood and men being taken out on stretchers, but it is definitely not for the weak. I watched a woman leave after one of the fights because she couldn't take it. However, my friend and I thought it was great! I'm so glad we went.

“Great night out”
Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

Yes, its true, the tourists are bound to the arena seats, but nothing wrong with that! It is a true experience for 2000 Baht to sit and experience things from so close. Other seats are not much cheaper and the local people are gambling over there which in itself is very interesting to see and hear!
I have a feeling that the bookies are trying to rig the fights to keep up their own entertainment, but it will not hinder you in seeing some nice fights, we had 3 knock outs.
Make sure that you come before the 5th fight, there were 9 in total and the highlight is number seven.
Once you are done make sure you dont get ripped off by the cabbies outside, they are horrible. We paid double to get back to the hotel, which is ok as they started with a fourfold of the price to get there. Do it :) you will not be disappointed, this is Thailand.
