Hello strong friends. I am curious as to who has trained in Phuket? Specifically, for a few weeks. I have two weeks to myself and want to experience living and training at a gym. I would consder myself a beginner, and I am also a female. So, feeling comfortable and safe somewhere is a priority. I am looking forward to hearing your experiences! Thanks in advance :)

Hi Breighw, I just spent 2 weeks at sumalee (sumaleeboxinggym.com) which was a good experience. A lot of beginners and females while I was there. Classes were well structured, nice facilities etc. The gym is off the main tourist track (good or a bad thing depending upon your perspective).

I second Sumalee. I've never trained in Phuket but Sumalee is owned by a woman and has a long and solid track record.

Natasha Sky trained long term at Sinbi with her husband. They own a gym together and just took their students for a 2 week trip to Sinbi. Three of her students fought while they were there. You could could try sending her a message on facebook.

Hey there. I go to Phuket very often and would recommend Phuket Top Team. It's in the area with the tourists etc but it's quite nice anyway. It's at the end (or beginning?) of Soi-tad-ied.
They focus on fighters and quality instead of having lots of students.
And if you like or want to try out muay boran you should definitely go to Tiger Muay Thai and train with Kru Oh. He's a genius and I learned a lot of things that I could also apply to muay thai. His krabi krabong class is also very good. 
Ah, I'm also from Germany btw. If you have further questions regarding Phuket don't hesitate to ask.

I am heading out to train in Phuket in November, going to Rattachai. Any recommendations about things to do/see in the area, good places to eat etc?

Sorry to piggy back but how do people feel about Sitsongpeenong Phuket? I know the trainers are highly qualified but how is the actual training/culture there? Good for couples/women or is it a more dudebro orientated market?   

Also, has anyone been to Sumalee or Sinbi in the past 12 months?
