With fights every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, Lumpini is one of the MUST visits if you study Muay Thai and have made the visit to its home, Thailand. The old stadium opened its doors in 1956 and ran all the way to February 8th 2014 and the internet cannot stop reminding you that the NEW stadium lacks the charm of the old. Whether you remember the holes in the roof or the roped off areas of the stadium, stumbling over old footage brings back a flood of memories. Mmmm, progress.
