Hua Hin - Thai boxing

Things to do in Hua Hin

If you are coming to Hua Hin make sure you check out the Thai boxing at "Muay Thai boxing garden"
It's only 500b to watch six fights and the beer is cheap enough too (80b)

Really good atmosphere and mainly Thai people in the crowd.

During this fight "Bruce Lee" versus "chinky looking fella" Bruce kicked chinky in the head when he was down and the crowed went mental they were chanting cheat really loud and the ref decided to disqualify Bruce and award chinky guy the fight.

Bruce lee flipped out, jumped over the ropes and into the crowd and started kicking the ones in the crowd who had told the referee. Then the whole ground floor kicked off and the gym owner and staff quickly opened the emergency exits and half the gym emptied out. They were all fighting in the street. Mental.

The organisers quickly bought on the "lady fighters" to keep the rest of the crowd inside. One of the girls was European so we cheered her on "come on Denmark" it was a really exciting evening. The Thai lady won the fight but the Danish girl put up a good fight.

Walked home both pretending to be Bruce Lee.

Moving hotels tomorrow as we are staying a couple more days in Hua Hin to allow Jason's bike wounds to heal a bit more before hitting the islands.
