Lots of visitors to this great city only have a single night or day to enjoy the bustling hub of activity that Bangkok can be—and it can be intimidating! Must-dos include hitting up Bangkok’s old town, known as Yaowarat, for some street eats, and then over to Khao San for a bucket (or three). If you want to cap your Bangkok experience the proper way: watch some Muay Thai. Although Thailand’s national sport is practiced throughout the country, Bangkok is the world Mecca of Muay Thai, and Rajadamnern Stadium is the world’s premier venue to catch some elbows and knees. Here, you will see the very best fighters in the world slug it out for your beer-chugging entertainment, all in the comfort of a state-of-the-art air-conditioned sports complex. There are fights here every day of the week, so it’s easy to pop by for a night of scraps.
