The Bangla Muay Thai Stadium in Patong is as close to Thunderdome as you'll find outside a movie set or Burning Man. It's essentially a three-storied arena packed with foreign and local fans jawing and drinking in a hot, sweaty box, filled with the droning live music of Muay Thai. The combination of Javanese clarinet, drums, a gong and chime bells plus the heat and the overwhelming scent of Tiger Balm get you feeling frisky and in the betting mood. < \strong>
