Muay Thai is a physical and mental discipline that's also called ‘the art of 8 limbs’. Combining the use of fists, elbows, knees, shins and feet, it’s a tough sport that requires a lot of physical preparation. A full-on top-level match is a veritable cascade of feints, thrusts, maneuvers and full-on head-bashing.

    If you're looking to toughen up and get in the ring, or even if you're just looking for a fun way to shed a bit of weight and get in shape, check out our guide to the best Muay Thai camps in Phuket. Many of them are located in the south of the island. These camps often offer accommodations, meals, and a wide range of courses for beginners, intermediates and advanced Muay Thai enthusiasts.
