One unique thing to do in Ao Nang is a Muay Thai show. This martial art form originates from Thailand and is still very popular. Shows are put on for tourists so you can get a sense of this exciting and historical sport first hand. There are many arenas in the Ao Nang area that have shows and many offer discounts if you book tickets for a whole family. This can be a great afternoon activity after the beach and it is one of the few good rainy day activities in Ao Nang. By the end of the show you will truly have an appreciation for the sport.
