Ratchadamnoen Stadium (สนามมวยราชดำเนิน), Ratchadamnoen Nok Rd (Panfa Leelard Pier), ☎ +66 2 281-4205. M, W-Th 18:30-22:30, Su 17:00-20:00 and 20:30-00:00. When the locals want entertainment, they head to the stadium for some Thai boxing! Or Muay Thai, as the Thais call it. It is very expensive though, expect to pay 1,000 baht for an outer-ring seat, 1,500 baht for a middle-ring seat and 2,000 baht for ringside seats. Thais chip in for 230 baht. A match includes eight fights with a maximum of five rounds each, so free some time in your schedule. The area around the stadium has some of the best places to get Isaan food, as television host Anthony Bourdain showed in an episode of his programme "No Reservations". 1,000-2,000 baht.
