Muay Thai at Petch Buncha Stadium from 9 PM every Wednesday and Saturday. This is the real thing, up to 8 Muay Thai contests between 2 well-trained, fast and strong men or women
Phetch Buncha Stadium is located near Laem Din Market, close to the Koh Samui Police and Fire stations in central Chaweng.
All over the Island you will be handed promotional flyers and hear the advertising vans go past
There are between 6 and 8 fights scheduled per night, the program commencing just after 9 PM with the younger and less experienced Muay Thai exponents, progressing through to the main event.
Every competitor performs the “Wai Kruu”, a traditional and ritualistic routine, that combines dancing and bowing in honour of the trainers.
Regardless of your attraction to regular boxing or other contact sports, watching Muay Thai should certainly be on your “to do” list while you are in Koh Samui. The whole event, not just the fight itself, provides an insight into local culture and the importance of Muay Thai within the Thai society, while the non-stop activity and action provides a great night’s entertainment for visitors all ages.
Every Wednesday and Saturday Night, Starting at 21:00
In recent times, a growing number of westerners are enrolling in training camps in Samui and all over Thailand, some come to train and learn this sport others come to improve their overall fitness and speed.
Muay Thai is action packed and relentless!
The Fights are REAL – Not an exhibition
