There were plenty of people. The Muay Thai fights usually start at around 8 pm. Many agents outside were selling tickets which they said were on sale. They were selling for 3,000 baht ringside, 2500 baht and 1500 baht. We were glad we did not buy outside. We went to the ticketing office and asked for a ticket. The agent said it was all sold out. Oh No Way Jose...This could not be... I asked the guy, we just went there to watch Muay Thai and we would be leaving the next day. A lady came to us and asked where we were from. Told her I was from Philippines. She smiled and said , she had been to Manila to study something, I forgot and she said she still had 3 tickets left but these were for the SPONSORS. The cost was 5000 baht. Oh come on.. hahaahah..another tactic huh to get us ripped off..hehehe. Well I used my charms. Since I had two SNEAKER chocolate BARS, I gave it to her and said these in English, " A beautiful lady deserves a sweet chocolates, would you like these? ". She smiled and said YES. Then I used my bargaining power. We saw that the price was only 2500. Fortunately she agreed for 1500 only on the VIP seat. So we paid and got inside. I had to leave about 3 still sealed bottled water since it was not allowed to bring inside. You have to put it in an ICE Wrapper (Philippine Style) with a straw. I just left it in a vendor and said would take it back after the fights.

After the fight, we saw an elephant outside. You just had to buy 20 baht worth of sugarcane slices to feed and pose with it.
