Bangkok Stopover - Must Do No.2

Watch some Thai Boxing

Before your seafood feast, taking in a Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) match might build your appetite. Even though the rules or skills of the fighters may not be obvious to the first-timer or Stopover traveller, it’s impossible not to get caught up in the atmosphere.

In the standard-sized boxing ring, the two opponents can kick, punch or knee each other into submission. It’s very hot and noisy - and in one bout I shouted myself hoarse supporting the eventual loser!
