What'd you think of all the betting that goes on. I like to describe it as a scene from the Deer Hunter when they are playing russian roulette.
I've been to both Lumpini and Rajdamnern, the atmosphere is truly electric. No a/c, only fans, dimly lit, noisy as hell, the betting, the cheap seats, the accompanying music from some buddhist monastery horn instrument during the wai kru.
I like it better than the modern, cool and orderly Korakuen Hall in Japan.
The experience is exotic!
