Why Chaweng Boxing Stadium is special ?
Chaweng Stadium – The Event Center is the latest addition to Chaweng’s Thai Boxing scene. Located at the back of Soi Solo Bar off Chaweng Beach Road, this stadium (slightly smaller than Phatchabuncha Stadium) organises major Muay Thai events with local and foreign fighters twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays from 21:00 until midnight (or earlier if fast knock-outs occur).
Paradoxically at the same time gracious and brutal, Thai Boxing is the promise of an evening filled up with adrenalin and emotion. The throbbing and acute Sarama music that accompanies Muay Thai matches has a hypnotic effect on the audience as it increases in speed and volume according to the intensity of the boxers’ engagement.
What to explore at Chaweng Boxing Stadium?
If you are on a tight schedule and can’t afford to take a Muay Thai class, visit the Chaweng Stadium to watch some professional boxing in action.
Although Thai boxing is often considered the most dangerous martial art, it is surprisingly a graceful sport to watch. The popular Chaweng stadium hosts some of the biggest muay thai boxing events on Koh Samui.
Guests are advised to check the schedule before visiting the stadium, but generally, the stadium hosts Muay Thai fights twice a week. Most of the time, the fights are held on Monday and Friday nights, however you may see a change in schedule during peak seasons. Additional fights are usually scheduled on Sunday nights, but only during peak seasons.
Both local and foreign fighters compete at this stadium and you will surely love the lively atmosphere featuring a cheering crowd, excellent live commentary and traditional Thai music.

Tips for you
If you can't make it to the big stadiums in Bangkok, this is well worth the stop. They have fights twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday, I believe) and they fill the house. It was an exciting night out. If you don't mind sitting in a folding chair for a few hours, go for the ringside tickets. VIP tickets are elevated seats on plusher seats, but you are further from the action than ringside seating. These fights are the real deal - but beware that the advertised fighters may not always be the ones actually fighting. There were several "changes" the night we went, though all fights were good competition and we wouldn't have known the difference anyways. Before the fights, walk up the street for some amazing street food where there are several vendors at the market.
