Cockfighting Centre, Chiang Mai

This new attraction tells the fascinating but gory history of cockfighting. It is extremely well set out and covers different breeds, different countries and culminates with a display of cockfighting. BUT… and it’s a big BUT … in Thailand birds are not equipped with the killer, metal spurs… and in Thailand a referee stops a fight when one bird is in trouble so it’s quite a bit more civilised than in some countries. Having said that it may still not be your cup of tea. I was fascinated by what I learned.
