Dusit Thani Dubai
Dusit Thani Dubai is Home to Dubai’s Professional Muay Thai Event of the Year
Dusit Thani Dubai, known for its iconic structure and warm Thai hospitality, celebrates its annual Loi Krathong slightly different this year. Instead of following the tradition by floating candles on a small raft made from banana leaves as a symbolic gesture of letting go of past grudges and hurdles, the hotel pays tribute to the most popular Thai sport of all time - the Muay Thai. Dusit Thani Dubai, in conjunction with Dubai Martial Arts Academy and Elite Boxing from Thailand, brings this cultural and sporting event dubbed as ‘WAR on the SHORE 3’ happening on 25 November 2010.
The tournament is similar to Elite Boxing’s third leg of Thailand vs. Challengers. This was first staged earlier this year in Thailand, while Germany will be the next warzone on 14 November. Muay Thai or Thai boxers are set to battle it out with foreign Muay Thai boxers for the glory of their country’s honour. Two undercard matches and six main event bouts comprises the nearly six-hour tourney. The fight night starts at 7pm.
‘War on the Shore 3’ (a.k.a. ‘Thailand vs. The Middle East’) will take place on the rooftop of Dusit Thani Dubai’s parking building - offering not only the sights of a historic battle, but also having the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, and the hotel’s ‘Wai’- shaped edifice as the event’s astounding backdrop.
The event is supported by the Government of Dubai, World Muay Thai Council (WMC), International Muay Thai Federation (IMF), Royal Thai Embassy Abu Dhabi, Royal Thai Consulate Dubai, THAI Airways, and the Thai community in the UAE.
Tickets to the event are priced at AED 195 (regular seats), 295 (VIP 2 – rows 6 to 10), and 495 (VIP1 – rows 1 to 5), and can be purchased directly at the hotel or via www.boxofficeme.com Special accommodation packages including access to the Muay Thai event are also available.
