There are lots of things to enjoy during the holidays; beach, fresh air, freedom, and a little recklessness. Over the years, I have visited Paris, Japan, Brazil, and many other amazing places. But on the insistence of a colleague, I scheduled my next family visit to the South East Asian country of Thailand.
The “tour” from the airport to the inner city is filled with the beauty and royalty of visiting a tropical country. However, what blew me off, was engaging in a sport I would love forever; Thai boxing.
Thai boxing is undoubtedly one of the combat sports in the world. It serves different purposes to various people, from a weight loss routine to wellness therapy and lots more; there is so much to gain from Thai boxing.
In my extended trip, here is what I found out about Muay Thai boxing and Thailand;
Thailand has lots of beautiful beach and islands
It is almost a tradition in Thailand to locate Muay Thai camps next to the beach or secluded on an island. The result is that you are always a recipient of nature’s caresses. During my stay, we had a big five-star cabin to ourselves and had lots of time exploring.
- Friends await you in Thailand.
Before my Thailand trip, I was oblivious to the vast amount of cultures and traditions of the world. While in camp, I met Australians, Chinese women, Korean lads, Africans, and many other people from different continents. And yes, there were lots of Americans. If this is not on your bucket list for a “nice” holiday, I wonder what is.
- Muay Thai boxing is for everyone
There is no age or cultural limitations in training for Muay Thai. The sport is all-inclusive and fun. In my camps, women outnumbered men, and there were even pregnant ones. It is one thing that makes the sport so great.
- The sport is super fun
Now, it will be hard to explain the kind of fun I mean. But when it was time to return, there were not plenty of happy faces, and we are going back in the coming holidays. The skills in Muay Thai are complex and exciting, the traditions around the sport are intriguing, and our ‘sensei’ was less eccentric.
This trip remains the family’s best holiday to date. The general experience was phenomenal.
Spending your holidays in Muay Thai comes very easy (Visa, travels and all). The country has a relatively low cost of living and wonderful people. You might be surprised to get a standard suite for half the prices in many other regions. The landmark areas, the tours, and delicious staples will leave you wanting more. Muaythai-thailand.com is for Muay Thai training and holiday.
Lastly, Thailand hosts the biggest annual Muay Thai boxing festival in the world. It attracts lots of Muay Thai champions and spectators from all over the world. Planning your family holiday towards this period will be such a great idea.
At the end of your holidays, you will hardly get the country out of your mind.
