The basics

The Rajdamnoen Stadium opened its doors in 1945, and has been training and producing prizewinning fighters since. Along with the Lumpinee Boxing Stadium to the north of the city, it’s one of the most important Muay Thai locations in the country. Get a close-up view at a (more expensive) ringside seat, or rub shoulders with excited Thais in the stalls. Gambling is allowed further back, and is done with hand gestures. Matches are played four nights a week. Most travelers attend a match independently, but packages can also be booked that provide convenient transfers to and from the match.

Things to know before you go

  • Foreigners must generally pay a higher fee for tickets than Thais, but these also usually come with a better seat.
  • To get a ticket, simply turn up at the stadium ahead of the match and buy one from the ticket office.
  • Matches start around 6:30pm but they continue for several hours. Unless you’re a really avid Muay Thai fan, think about showing up an hour or so late.
  • Snacks and drinks are sold at the stadium, including beer.

How to get there

Rajdamnoen Stadium is in central Bangkok, in the Banglamphu area, which is a popular hang-out for travelers. This part of the city is not on the Skytrain or Metro routes, so it’s most convenient to get a taxi from wherever you’re staying.

When to get there

Rajdamnoen Stadium typically hosts matches on the days that the other Muay Thai arena, Lumpinee, doesn’t host matches. So whenever you happen to be in Bangkok, you can watch a match at one or the other location. It’s advisable to check before you visit for up-to-date match schedules.
