Activities on Koh Lanta Island:
Visit a Muay Thai Boxing Competition

Thai Boxing or Muay Thai is a martial art thousands of years old. Different from Western-style boxing it includes kicks and punches performed with elbows, knees and feet.

There are a lot of different techniques used, not all intended to hurt the opponent immediately, some are only used to keep him away or put him off balance before striking out with the next attack.

At least once a week, twice a week during the high season, there are competitions on Lanta Island, either at Phra Ae Stadium or at Klongdao Stadium. These are real fights, sometimes with fighters coming from other provinces and they are a "must go" for the local male population.

Fight nights are currently Tuesdays and Fridays at 21:00 and the entrance fee is 600 Baht.
