    Hello,

    I’m going out to Thailand the beginning of January to start 2-3 months of Muay Thai training.
    I have done a lot of research and plan on starting off in Phuket to train at Sinbi Muay Thai.
    However... Many people say that Phuket is not a nice place - as I want to be able to visit the beach regularly and relax aswell.
    Would I be better going to koh phangan to experience this kind of lifestyle? As I have heard that Phuket has became a tourist trap.
    Diamond Muay Thai is an option in Koh Phangan at the moment.
    Cheers,
    Luke

    Phuket does not have many tourist attractions this is true.
    More Phuket not as dangerous as in other area of Thailand. Hey I'll give you a hint the best gym in Phuket is the Sitsongpeenong Phuket Muaythai

    Hey mate I'm leaving in exactly 2 weeks too. Originally I thought Phuket because of the beach and all but then I thought to myself there's beaches in Australia anyways..... I'm going to Thailand to train... so yeah I'll be going with a matie to this gym in the outskirts of Bangkok instead. I heard from him and a few good maties that go to Thailand (training) regularly that if you want the party life or touristy life whilst training Phuket will be more ideal.

    SItsongpeenong phuket is the highest quality gym there.

    If you’re further south there is Naka Muay Thai which is a great place for people who want English instruction.

    A really good gym in Koh Phangan is Namsaknoi MT. I would have recommended it (and went there myself) as Namsaknoi was one of the longest reigning champions in Thailand. However, I heard Namsaknoi has since left.

    I've heard mixed reviews about Sitsongpeenong Phuket. I know the Bangkok location is legit and had several very notable fighters but I heard the Phuket location was more of a tourist trap.

    I heard that its kind of good to go to thailand during the winter, but you don't get as much attention from the instructors because of high season, i was planning on going in jan too, but i got my friends birthday and her sons birthday, and my birthday coming up between jan and mid april so i was going to go during the spring, so may or june, would i get some one on one attention from the gyms from may-august? I've been planning this trip for nearly 2 years and money issues have become a problem yet again this year.

    Yeah I had heard of Namsaknoi and read some great reviews although I have also read that he has left and for this reason it is no longer worth going to the gym.

    Im landing in Phuket so thought its only right to check the place out although from what I am hearing it is a BIG tourist trap
