“Muay Thai live- Expensive , one hour acrobatic show”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

I just came out of the show. It was an hour show. Paid 1500 baht for premium seats by the ringside. For the premium tickets I get a soft drink and a large salted popcorn. The ring and stage was connected. I would not say there s any difference between the premium tickets and the regular ; 1200 baht tickets. I should have just bought the regular tickets. Performers seemed to be real acrobatic and fit and managed to demonstrate various Muay Thai stunts. Visual and story line was poor. Midway through the show, the visual presentation at the stage failed due to technical problems and there was basically a blank black screen till the end of the show. Props was used and sword fights was credible. I feel that the whole show lacked a proper storyline and there was basically just fighting and more fighting scenes. I would consider the tickets expensive for such a short show with poor visual presentation. At the end of the show, there was not even any apology for the technical errors by the managements. The theater hall was miserably filled (perhaps attributed to the high costs of the tickets?) . I would not recommend this show but if one is into expensive Muay Thai demonstration, then this is the show to watch.

“Muay Thai past meets present”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Having missed out the previous night when it was VIP night and the Thai Princess Royal was in attendance along with the Air Force Army and Navy we decided to take a chance and rocked up to buy tickets on the night. Children are free - Adults can either pay 1200 baht for regular seats or Pay for Premium seats -that are 1500 baht - you get a popcorn and a free soft drink-
buy a beer and get one free at time of writing . Fully Airconditioned - comfortable plush seating , clean toilets and amazing service. They even swapped our popcorn over as it was "cold" after 10 minutes!
The show is not the Muay Thai fights you see in the ring at Lumpini and is quite suitable for children; but this is more intense,- Real moves- real action - and I am surprised these superfit guys don't get hurt as its very acrobatic, a visual feast and it tells the story of Muay Thai. One of my travelling companions who is really into UFC etc was highly impressed. They also use swords and knives and sparks fly as they fight each other and do amazing Muay Thai moves - Moves you WONT see in the real arena, where it seems to me to be all hugging and the occasional knee into the stomach and elbow in the arm. This is choreographed to perfection with sound effects and lighting and there are scenarios both olden and modern - even a current day street fight . If you are a family - I highly recommend it. If you are a couple and the wife would rather shop - think again- she will love it. If you are into Muay Thai this really is a show to see. Much better than the offerings in hot and sweaty muay thai arenas in my opinion. I guess the standing ovation from the crowd at the end sums it all up. The guys were dripping sweat at the end of the show and were only too happy to pose for photos and sign autographs for free - how long that will last I don't know.

“Amazing performances, a must see!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

I saw ads promoting this new stage show & decided to check it out. I think this is the first time that Muay Thai has been made into a world-class choreographed stage performance with state of the art light & sound effects. Its about time, since Muay Thai is part of Thailand's rich national heritage. The show is about 45 min long and is divided into several short "scenes" based famous historical Muay Thai fighters & warriors. The performances do have some scenes that are quite violent, so families with small children should be aware. The form of Muay Thai shown is the traditional kind which is closer to kung-fu, not the toned-down type seen in boxing matches today. Lots of fantastic acrobatics. The stage & seating is designed to be watched from front, left & right, but the best views are from the seats facing the front.
Shows are daily at 8pm and run for 45 min. Venue is at the Asiatique riverfront arcade.
