I'm thinking about flying to Phuket for a camp sometime this year, so I wanted to ask you guys - which camps do you recommend and why? Which ones to avoid? Currently I'm thinking about Sinbi, but I'm open to new suggestions. Thanks in advance.:cool:
 
ALL camps in Phuket should be avoided
 
You're a dirty man,i recommend you seek out your physician and get all necessary shots first.

If you just want to do Muay Thai then Sinbi is a good choice. If you want to mix your training then I'd recommend Phuket Top Team. I really enjoyed my time there.
 
Being based in Singapore I have been to Phuket a number of times and would suggest that any of Singpatong, Sinbi, Sor Sumalee would be good. But then again you probably need to be a lot clearer on what your after ie Are you a soon to be world champ - if thats the case Singpatong would probably be better as mentioned above they currently have 3 Lumpinee champs.

Also, as suggested above after my last visit about 2 years ago. Phuket is no longer a place I visit as its an absolute shit hole now compared to what it used to be like. So many scammers and its so overpriced for thailand. You really would be much better served going to Bangkok or Ubon if you really just want to train
 
Generally, I'm currently fighting MMA, but I started out in Muay Thai back in the day, I'm still a standup fighting nut and always wanted to travel to Thailand, train and fight there.
 
The only place I have trained in Phuket is Patong Boxing Gym (PBG). I have written a review in this forum which you can search for if interested. I am there now. I like it although it is less organized than in the past.

Did they really bump the monthly rate up to 50,000 baht per month?
Good gym I agree, but that's a bit excessive.

Sing Patong is a fighters gym and their track record speaks for itself. They currently have 3 lumpinee champions that they've trained themselves.

Sinbi is also a good choice and in a nice area too.

If you wanted to do some MMA, Phuket Top Team has top instructors, deep fight team and a solid Muay Thai program (they currently have Nonsai & Samkor teaching there) and some other really good trainers as well.

Nope. That seems to be the rumor across this forum but it is not true. I am not sure how it started. Maybe the website isn't clear.

In any case, I am there right now and I can confirm that the monthly training cost remains 10,000 THB/month which, I think, is about average for Phuket.

What they did do is jack up the training + accommodation cost to 50K. so training is still 10K and the bungalows are 40K per month.

Hope that clarifies.

Uh no, that a crazy expensive. Like top of the line rip off expensive.

But as explained its for training and accommadation but thats still a rip off.

Isn't patong where all the nightlife is? That might increase the property value.

On another note, if you train at Tiger Muay Thai here is the types of opponents they set you up to fight at Bangla. :icon_lol:

well, I don't see how 10K a month for training is a rip off.

I don't stay at camp. there are lots of options.

I am not trying to sell people on the camp. there are lots of great camps. I just want people to have accurate info

To be fair, I dont think TMT is the only gym in Phuket that does this type of match making. Not really sure what someone who has trained in Muay Thai for any period of time gets in beating up some poor thai who clearly hasnt trained or if they have it must have been around 10 years ago. Saying that I did see one farang getting the absolute crap kicked out of him by a thai construction worker who was overweight but unfortunately for the farang the thai guy had been a decent fighter when he was young and was hard as nails. So even for the jack Osbourne muay tourists who want to claim a win in thailand you can come unstuck sometimes.
