In 1941, the Prime Minister of Thailand, Field Marshal Plaek Pibulsongkram gave orders to build a national boxing stadium on Rajadamnern Avenue. Impresse Italiane All' Estero-Oriente won the construction rights, and the 258,900 baht project foundation stone was laid on March 1, 1941.
Due to the lack of construction supplies during the World War II, the project was halted until August 1945. When the war ended and the construction resumed, it took only four months to complete it. The first boxing match was held on December 23, 1945. Tickets were priced at between 70 and 300 Baht. Pramote Puengsoonthorn became the first stadium manager, who remained in the post until his retirement in 1947.

On the basis of the Rezenssionen we have decided for the second class in hindsight the best choice. The view is great and you sit right next to the locals. Both the fight and the bets of the locals are a spectacle for themselves. Although the stage only to one-third (of which 10% tourists, rest locals) was filled, there was really good mood. It was absolutely worth. In the second class sitting on the concrete floor of the levels. Easy is different, but that suited already. The view is great. Cola/Fanta are salted popcorn - but no reason for the point deduction, not really tasty, nor only syrup. We had nine matches and it took a good three hours, you get so much. The Hall empties but after the seventh fight (the main event). # My wife and I don't really know the sport, but here in the Rajadamn you can experience Muay Thai stadium, up close. On the basis of the reviews we decided for the second class, afterwards the best choice. The visibility is great and you sit right next to the locals. The fight as well as the betting of the locals is a spectacle in itself. Although the stage which only filled to a third (10% tourists, locals rest) there what a really good atmosphere. It what absolutely worth it you sit in the second class on the concrete floor of the steps. Comfort is different, but that what fine. The view is great. Cola/Fanta are unfortunately only syrup, not really tasty, just as little of the salted popcorn - but no. reason to deduct points. We had nine fights and it took a good three hours, so you get a lot of offers. But after the seventh fight (the main fight) the hall empties.
Slightly overpriced to get in for foreigners (locals are hugely cheaper) confusing to even access your seats. Once in we had a pretty good view from our seats and a guy walks round and takes drinks or... more »
Well we are currently in Thailand but won’t go here. We were here 2 years ago, believe it’s still the same. Frenetic fun ambiance if you choose the cheapest seats in the circle near the locals. They even shared their peanuts with us. They have specific tickets for foreigners (sorry can’t remember the price). We bought it there as we arrived and asked for the cheapest ones. So avoid agents, it’s not necessary and they’ll get you in a cage with only tourists. Well, only if you want to get the spit of the fighters on you, braces the tourist seats are by the arena. Your choice. You had really a fun few hours. NOTE: there are very young fighters (children really) which was the downside for us...
Fantastic experience, must-see in my opinion. Ring side seats are overrated though. Get club class (if you want better seats and easy access to the bar) or second row (if you want the best atmosphere and don't mind standing a bit). You can usually skip the first fight, fight 5-7 are normally the most impressive. Drink prices are also fine (beer is expensive). It says to not take videos but I've never seen anyone making a fuss because of a few phones in the air for a minute or two. Tip: just because they bring you to the section for foreigners, doesn't mean you have to sit there. Typically better atmosphere with Thais.
