I have had a lot of massages around the world, but always go to Wat Po when in Bangkok for the best traditional Thai massage available. I went there on July 22, 2014 and had a male masseur who, after 2 hours, made me feel like a new person. He was very responsive to my requests for less pressure in... More

So I love getting massage, I like to try different therapies when I travel. My goal was to get a massage a day every day I was in Thailand. Thai massage is done fully clothed and usually in a large room with other people. Wat Pho is a magical setting for massage. Instruction there is very serious and a long... More

Came here looking for the same kind of quality massage as Wat Pho. I don't think I got it. Very easy to find, 1 min from the metro station (you can almost see it from the station) Whole set up seemed to be aimed at Japanese market - signage generally in Japanese, and the treatment menu was much more extensive...

The Wat Pho Traditional massage school is the best in Thailand. The only minor drawback for Sukhumvit dwellers was having to go across town to the temple site, which tends to be crowded. The Sukhumvit branch is easily accessed by BTS ( Phrom Phong), opens from 8am to midnight, is clean and air conditioned. All this and a superb Thai... More

Good value traditional massage at a very reasonable price - around €10. Whole family of 5 (kids are young adults) went and really enjoyed the foot massage and/or full body massage. Semi private curtained cubicles fully professional and pleasant staff.

Official Thai Massage school - 2009 we went to the branch inside the Wat Po complex. this time we discovered a branch just around the corner near the 7 UP- seems everyone you ask knows about it. Extremely good as far as I could say. Approx 400baht per hour.

In a rambling building mere moments from the Phrom Phong BTS is a gem of a massage shop. Also a training school for locals and visiting students from all over the world, the massage here is traditional Thai therapeutic massage. It is all taken very seriously.....but this is a good thing especially if you are suffering from weary legs and... More

Came across a queue whilst wandering around wat pho and decided to investigate, never been happier I did. Even though you are all lined up on beds next to each other it was truly worthwhile. Not expensive but because they are all trained through the school they take it very seriously and do a great job.

May be my expectations were too high....... there are better places in BK. The language gap perhaps was the reason why my needs were not met....
