Phuket, Thailand

Program details

Absorb the culture of Thailand with 'Muay Thai' or Thai kick boxing. See the fighting gala on Friday night at Suwit Boxing Stadium.The night starts with fighters buffed with liniment while their handlers make sure legs are stretched before the high-kicking begins in the ring. Unlike television wrestling, none of the action is choreographed - these are real contests. From the comfort of a ringside seat, the speed and the skills of the sport become apparent, even when some of the movements are so fast and furious that the eye can't take them in.
