Ringside Seats | Feel the Heat of the Action | Phuket's Most Popular Stadium
These ringside seats are lower-level, tiered seating with a great view of the ring. Here you'll experience the passion and intensity of a live Muay Thai fight. Located in the centre of Phuket, Bangla is the biggest Muay Thai boxing stadium in the town. It is the preferred destination for people who are passionate about the sport. Most of the fighters who appear at Bangla Stadium have trained in the gyms in Phuket, which includes many foreigners who have come to Thailand to compete. All seats have a great view, although ringside seats are more comfortable than the concrete stadium seats with a closer view of the action. The stalls offer a great view of the ring and the gamblers in the crowd who are very entertaining to watch as well. The stadium is operated by the Tiger Group, who owns and operates a consortium of hotels, bars, and restaurants in Phuket.

The evening runs from 9pm to midnight but can be shorter if there are a couple of knockouts. The event usually starts with the younger (age 12-14), lighter, less experienced fighters and progresses up to the evening’s main event - featuring national and international champions. Foreign boxers are often impressive to watch due to their size while Thai boxers possess a purer technique than most international boxers. Watching professional fights at a stadium is an excellent way to experience Thai customs, superstitions and ceremonies in a traditional and vibrant setting. For centuries, Muay Thai fighters have sought good fortune and devised practices to keep the evil spirits at bay, and many of these rituals are carried out in the arena by the fighters. The intense battles and unique dancing ceremonies are just the start of the experience. Combined with the traditional music played by a live band and a passionate crowd, a Muay Thai event is uniquely Thai generating an electric atmosphere like no other.

Spur of the moment decision to attend and definitely didn’t regret the decision. One of those location experiences you need to take advantage of whilst in Patong. We enjoyed and even had a little win on the night.
This is a must do if staying close to patong, brilliant set up and atmosphere, night markets across the street, and finished about 11.30 after 8 fights so still early for night out on bangla.
Fantastic atmosphere , drinks are ordered and served to your seat. The night went for about two hours , bit disappointed that the Aussies were on the banners and flyers but weren’t participating - late withdrawal perhaps. No mention of this anyway. Nonetheless it was a great night. Alcoholic and non alcoholic beverages, popcorn and French fries were available as well as souvenirs.
The fight was very intense. There were 10 games, and I guessed eight. Several punches went down and sweat splashed on my face. Next time sit a little farther. Ha-ha
Was great fun, just be careful of getting involved in the side-betting as they are quite pushy. As far as I understand it's illegal so best just be firm about not wanting to bet.
This is a nice place to visit in Phuket for getting insights into Thai kickboxing. In downtown Patong,there were regular announcements advertising the sport and that’s what got us interested. Booked tickets for this place Through a local tour guy. Had a good experience if watching boxers battling it out in the stadium. The fighters are for real and didn’t look fake even for a minute. Awesome Display of skills by the professionals
We had a ringside seats so we was up close and personal, the Fighters were all good and was entertaining
We paid $1500baht for the mid level seats so we could see better. The stadium is not very big so any seat is really ok. We watched 2 fights between boys around 8yrs old - they were admirable in their fight, we felt sorry for one boy who lost, but his support group was amazing and supported him really well. The crowd cheered and clapped him as loudly as the winner! The women are amazing to watch - very focussed and intense. Overall, you are close enough to feel every kick that hits its mark, watch the bookies get their bets from the crowd and with snacks and drinks served in your seat, this was a great experience. Kudos to the men who without fail play the music that allows the fighters to get their rhythms in the ring!
Our family had a lot of fun cheering on the fighters. We went for the ringside seats which are quite expensive, but were worth it. A great experience.
