Regardless of your mindset, you’ll be swept along by thai boxing’s rituals and the percussive excitement of the gambling fans. Muay Thai is a huge drawcard for locals across Thailand and many follow the fights with a passion reserved for cricket or football elsewhere in the world, so shoot your snake whisky, make a bet or just soak up the spectacle of this national sport. And for the game, begin training at a local school. Though it’s advised to pay up your insurance before entering the ring.
