Question Which punching bag for Muay Thai?

I recently started taking Muay Thai classes at a local gym, but wanted to practice in my off time at home, so I decided to get a bag. Though I'm having trouble deciding which one to get.

I am about as new to training as one could be, but wanted a bag I could practice a combination of kicks and punches.

Would you recommend a free standing bag such as this:


A swinging bag such as this:

I noticed at the gym I joined they seem to have a lot of free standing bags more then swinging ones, so I can only assume that would be my best bet? Also, if a swinging bag would be a better choice, how does one determine the right weight for a bag? I am very small, 5"10 150lbs if that gives any indication on which size bag would be right for me.
