You are massaged fully clothed, and on pads side by side with your neighbors. They really know how to work you over, and after walking through the Wat Pho maize, and bending your neck to see this wonderful temple complex, the massage really hits the spot and relatively inexpensive.

At the temple of Wat Pho in a separate building is the Wat Pho Massage School. After a day of sightseeing and walking it was a welcomed relief to have a traditional foot massage by a highly trained masseuse. What a pleasure.

The best Thai foot massages! We had several. Bliss! A must do when in Bangkok. Foot massage ends with a neck and shoulder massage. Bliss after having carried a rucksack around all day. The Massage school is set in the lovely compound of the Wat Pho. Great place to relax after a hectic sightseeing day. Feet and mind refresh at... More

Had the full-body thai massage here, wasn't the best but definitely not the worst I've had. Good location near Phrom Phong BTS.

This was the best message we had in Thailand. Make this a pitstop half way through your day to re-energise your feet. Highly recommended!

After getting 30 minute foot massages at a small massage parlor near our hotel every day for three days, my friends and I decided to experience what our guide said was the real deal (monks train all the masseuses) at the Thai Massage school on the grounds of Wat Po. Despite the sign at the entrance that asks for quiet,... More

I've been visiting this serene sanctuary for over 20 years and I cannot tell you enough about this experience. Try all their massages while you're in Bangkok. It'll be the... More

I go every year and I always stop at Wat Po. This year I decided to try the massage at the school. You pay a little more but it was worth it. Cost it 100 bahts but free for locals.

Great service with great results. Staff was competent with a decent level of English. After one day, the majority of my back pain that I had for years was gone. Definitely will be back when I come to bangkok.
