    I'm looking into taking a trip to Thailand sometime this summer, if that is not possible than at least sometime this year. Here is my information to date:

    Dates: July 3-31

    Purpose: To train/learn Muay Thai at an authentic (as possible) Thai camp. If spare time allows it I'd like to take in the sites too.

    Flight: Out of Toronto->Tokyo->Bangkok where I will spend a night (and take part in some underground bare knuckle fights ala Ong Bak)->Phuket next morning same shit on the way back.
    *Cost: 2550

    Camp:http://sinbi-muaythai.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1
    *Cost (includes 2 meals a day, bed, training):735.39

    Pocket money: 2500

    As of April 9 2008, this is my plan.

    Thanks to everyone for their kind words and suggestions. Still have yet to commit to anything but it's looking like this will be it.

    Damn, where you from? Unless you're from a tropical climate, I think going to thailand during the summer would be hell.

    Sinbi is a good camp too, spent the summer there last year. I will be there again from June to the end of July.

    I stopped by Suwit last summer, they are ok... kind of run down.

    Sinbi has much better facilities and training IMO.

    I'm also considering a trip to Thailand in the near future. I have spent a lot of time in Thailand in the past but never to train. Definantely let me know what camp you decide on if you wouldn't mind. Thanks.

    If you are looking for a no-bs gym that offers only hardcore training without any fancy tourist attractions, go for Kaewsamrit. I heard a lot of good things bout this gym. There's also a lot of vids on youtube bout their training so you can see how they train.

    If your gonna be near Bangkok go to Kaewsamrit..Super cheap..the accomodations suck but you'll be living like a fighter..prepare to feel like your training with a blanket on from the humidity and keep your feet dry and clean because they will get eaten up from training on the pavement

    ps the site says that its 372 with the room, ac, AND training... i dont know if you caught that but the original post made it seem that it would be an additional 200 for training

    So, I was thinking of going to the Sinbi Muay-Thai Camp, but I was wondering: how is the food like? I like good food, so is it like a military regimen?

    You don't have to eat at the the Sinbi camp. They have a food program, but the owner told us we could get better/cheaper food down the rd.

    There are a bunch of great cafes right around the corner from the gym...
