Stadium
“Bangla Boxing Stadium is the latest Muay Thai arena on Patong Beach’s boxing scene. Originally built on Bangla Road on a smaller scale, the stadium kept its name after moving to its new location opposite Banzaan Market on Sai Kor Road, the new large thoroughfare passing behind Jungceylon Shopping Mall. The stadium is difficult to miss: it’s a large two-storey building with a first floor made of beige stone-like sculpted cement and features four beer bars with hostesses, while the second floor is an amphitheatre surrounding the ring. At the front of the building you can spot large statues representing Thai boxers. ”

Restaurant
“Rawai Seafood Market started as a modest local fisherman village where you would buy some local catch to take home. Rawai beach in the very south of Phuket is also known as the Sea Gypsy Village and has always been a bit of an exotic attraction. Year after year, the small market grew in popularity and a few restaurants started to cook the fish you just bought across the street. The concept was popular, fun and cheap, so tourists heard of it. More restaurants opened, more tourists came, prices went up. The rest is history.”
