KC Muay Thai Chiang Mai Directions, Map, Location

How to get to KC Muay Thai in Chiang Mai.  It's a bit funny that the gym not only doesn't have a website, their facebook page is misspelled so it's quite difficult to find, and there's not a single map showing where the gym is.  Luckily when I decided to come, I found Michael's website and they had a bit of information on the gym.  But no one really had a map or easy directions to the gym.  Even on the official KC Muay Thai facebook page the directions are a bit unclear unless you've already been here as the Tae Kwon Do gym they tell you to look out for doesn't have any signs and is only open at night.

When I first arrived, none of the taxi driver's at the airport had heard of KC, even though I had printed out a picture of the gym's logo.  They kept trying to take me to Lanna Muay Thai and Chay Yai Muay Thai and even Santai, but I insisted on KC and luckily the found a driver that kind of knew where it was.  He got lost, but eventually found the place after driving around for a bit.

So while trying to explain to Michael White, the owner of Muay Thai Photography how to get here so he could take some photos of a training session I decided that the ridiculousness needs to end, so I sat down and made a map.

If you're coming to KC Muay Thai in Chiang Mai, do yourself a favor and print out this map so you can hand it to the taxi driver.  It's also a good idea to keep it on you for the first few weeks so you can get back to the gym from town.  I hope this helps!  Also here's an interactive google map.

Warm Regards and happy training,

  1. Hi I'm a begginer student looking for a muay thai gym to train at for 2 weeks in December 2014. Is this gym beginner friendly and how do u book? many thanks

    1. Hey Phillip, KC is beginner friendly, but I would try to be in shape before you come as it'll be a tough workout. The only way to book ahead is through their facebook page above. Make sure you read the book 12 weeks in Thailand before coming, it'll save you a ton of money.


Hey if you've read this far, you might as well at least leave a comment. Even just to say what's up! If you have any questions about training in Thailand just ask it here in the comments and I'll answer so everyone can benefit from it.
