The tour is ideal for families and includes an English speaking guide, refreshments, lunch entrance fee, bicycle, safety equipment and insurance.
Thai Boxing (Duration – one hour)
Thai boxing is known as “Muay Thai” is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science of Eight Limbs”, because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”, as opposed to “two points” (fists) in boxing and “four points” (hands and feet) used in other more regulated combat sports, such as kickboxing and savate. A practitioner of Muay Thai is known as a nak muay. Western practitioners are sometimes called Nak Muay Farang, meaning “foreign boxer.”
