Experience Pattaya’s Nightlife
Watch a Muay Thai Show
Apart from having a variety of restaurants, cheap drinks, and friendly bars, you will get to see and experience Muay Thai in a single bustling place. In the middle of all of these tightly-packed bars is a boxing ring, where you will see Muay Thai boxing fight exhibition most evenings. They are not vicious bouts and the fighters are not attempting to hurt each other, but they are still very fun to watch. For those customers brave enough, you can even step up in the ring to test your boxing skills. Again, the fighters will not try to hurt you, but the idea is to experience the culture and you can also get photographed with the boxers
