What is “Santai” ?
Santai is the name of the gym and the village where we are located in the town of Sankamphaeng, Chiang Mai Thailand. The foremost temple called ‘Wat Santai’ is located 20 meters from the Thai Boxing Gym, situated on land which is owned by the temple. The close proximity of the temple only adds to the cultural experience of Muay Thai training in Thailand.
