This is my # 1 choice for the Muay Thai Schools in Thailand. Its located in the spiritual quiet north of Thailand, Chiang Mai. They approach Muay Thai as a non-confrontational discipline with emphasis on self-defense. They teach health of the physical being by promotion of exercise and thru vegetarianism.

perhps the question is put a bit too generaly, because nobody wants the same:
check out Stickmans review at
I'm not too sure which is the best Muay Thai School in Thailand but here is a link that lists some information and a list of Muay Thai camps with websites.

There are many Thai boxing camp in Chiang Mai. I would suggest you try learning Thai boxing in Chiang Mai as it weather and the learning area is larger.
Sasiprapa Muay Thai Gym is at the top of the list in Bangkok and the owner speaks good English. If you are heading out of town then I would reccomend 'Legacy Gym' in Ubon Rachathani owned and operated by a foriegn fighter.

Depends what your purpose is? Let me know and I can put you in direct contact with both these clubs.
The Fairtex Muay Thai School in Pattaya City, Chonburi Province.
I would certainly advise Chiang Mai for this purpose, because of it's cultural environment and pleasant life style.
That really is a difficult question to answer. Every school has it's traditions and positives. If you measure quality by champions, I suppose the Fairtex schools () must be right up there. They have first rate courses and equipment. However, if it's tradition you are looking for, there are many schools you could aim at. A popular one one with foreigners is Jitti Gym on Ladprow Road (). Sor Vorapin near Khao San Road has a solid history and good trainers (). Let me know if I can help more...

Before to answer your question you should give me more details.
Well, are you going to thailand to learn muai thai as professional or for leasure ?
Do you plan to travel around thailand and how long you plan to stay there ?
There are school in most of places in thailand, it just also depends in which area you plan to travel, then i could recommend u a school there.
I got the impression the questioner was trying to establish a single school that would represent the best available - like the Shaolin Temples represent the best available as far as Kung Fu is concerned. I don't think there is a single Muay Thai school that fits this profile.

hey I heard good things about It's in Bangkok, easy to go everywhere in town....check it out!
Well my small town of Pakchong happens to be the home of SOMJIT JONGJOHOR the Olympic Games GOLD winner and we witnessed the "fever" that not only locals but the whole of Thailand felt for this world champion.

In the meantime the official school of Muay Thai is called The Muay Thai institute situated in Rangsit (just north of the international airport)and all the teachers are champions and can speak English.

I don't know because no many Thais want to learn Muay Thai.
It is our national sport but locals don't really enjoy practicing or even watching it next to the ring.
it is a very difficult question to answer,whats your main objective?to fight in the ring or to train?currently i am training at SASIPRAPA gym,their website is ,
or u can call master Thakoon at +66818566684 for more info.
there are photos in my facebook.they have stay-in program can go to to know more about muay thai.hope it helps.and now training in bangkok is tough because its hot,but it helps to condition your body.
The Eminent Air Boxing Gym is owned by a famous promoter at Lumpini Boxing Stadium in Bangkok. It offers long and short courses in Muay Thai. Website is:

That facility is located on Koh Tao a very small, quiet island with award winning training facilities. Steve, the owner, looks like a pitbull but he's a really respectful man. You probably won't train with him untill you get more experience. I strongly recommend these guys above others in Thailand
Muay Thai isnt my main area of knowledge - but i have heard many good things about this gym, which has many international outlets, and trains one-on-one (the best way to train)
Lots of choice. Chaing Mai has good coverage, but i hear Sasiprapa in Bangkok is the best.
Good luck
Are u lokking for a private lesson bacause my friend is a Muay Thai school lwt mw know if you are interested :)
Are u looking for a private lesson bacause my friend is a Muay Thai teacher let me know if you are interested :)
Jungle Gym, Had Rin, and Had Tien Koh Phangan. Run by twice world female champion and based in the jungle! My brother is a Muat Thai teacher and he highly reccomends it
interesting,u based in koh samui?hows the wmc camp in koh samui?its at lamai beach.i am going koh samui for a week,thinking of working out there and relax at the beach.
There are good school around Thailand. If you want to explore Thaialnd at the same time, I suggest Chiangmai or Phuket for you to take a class. Check out some list here...

or the list from above answer are pretty good as well...
well, i dont know much about Mauy Thai, but i heard that one is Fairtek in Pattaya,one of my friend who do alot of mauy thai prictice he told to me there is the good one.
The best Muay Thai camp in CHiang Mai is Lanna Muay Thai in Moobaan Chiang Khian near to CM University.

Their website is

The boxer that starred in the movie Beautiful Boxer trained in this camp.

My brother trained at 2 gyms. Sasiprapa Muay Thai Gym in Bangkok and Parang Muay Thai Gym in Ayutthaya which also teaches Muay Borang which is the worrier style used by the Thais in their war with Burma 500 years ago using sticks and swords along with Muay. He enjoyed both camps very much.

Have fun,
I currently train at DRAGON MUAY THAI in Phuket. I've talked with several fighters and can give you a run down of the opinions:

anywhere in Chain Mai = typical secluded training in most places. Not a very touristy area. Fighters recommend this area if you want total immersion into fighting.

Bangkok = large group training, and some say you get treated as a number. The plus side is there is lots to do in Bangkok.

Koh Samuay (spelling may be off) - WMC good training and beautiful location.. highly recommended by other fighters.

Phuket - I train here currently. Phuket is an island and very popular tourist attraction. That means there are lots of distractions. I am going to give you my opinion and you take from it what you want =

Tiger Muay- waste of my money, large group sessions, treated like a number, never got any actual TRAINING, had bugs in food, ignored when I asked basic questions, the rooms are like cement caves and they cost as much as the nicer rooms down the road. In all fairness maybe the language barrier was a factor to my experience, but you can google muay thai blogs and read for yourself.. ONE plus point about Tiger, their cardio/conditioning routine is very good. It's not for the weak minded, if you're the type of person who takes the elevator instead of the stairs because you don't want to breathe heavy then this workout won't be for you, actually no Muay Thai workout will be good for a person like that. This workout will push you to your limit and beyond. i found it tough to keep up at first (and I train back home), but again not for everybody!!

I left Tiger after the first month and moved to Dragon Muay Thai, on the web look for PhuketDragonMuayThai .. Personlized training even in a group setting. They take the time to correct your mistakes. They reward sincere effort with more/advanced techniqe training. All cardio and conditioning is done alone, this means you are responsible for your own cardio. Don't worry there are several people even the trainers who can give you tips and instruction on what when and how to do excercises. My opinion is obvious on which gym is better.

BOTH TIGER AND DRAGON allow the students to stay at various hotel/bungalow/rooms in the immediate area (within 5 minute walk to each gym).

Rawai gym - several fighters highly recommend this gym. It is located near Rawai beach (don't let the name fool you, the beach is next to a fishing port), the training is very popular and tough! The gym has been a favorite for foreign fighters for several years. they have a website if you're interested. This gym and Suit both allow students to stay AT the gym, actually it may be required but I'm not sure on that one. That means NO company on lonely nights!!!!!

Suit gym, again same as Rawai. Both gyms are favorites of foreign fighters for several years. Suit also has a stadium which holds fights every weekend.

Your best bet is to go to the area you want to train in - Phuket/Bangkok/Chain Mai. Go to each gym and try one groups session (if allowed) and decide which one suits your needs.
I don't know if it's the best but a lot of foreigners visiting Thailand come and train at the eminent in Bangkok have a look at
