The first thing we do in Bangkok is go here for a massage. It's great after a long plane journey. It seems to get busier every time though - this time there was a 45 minute wait or if we walked 5 minutes to the school just outside of the temple, we could have massages straight away. We chose this... More

If you want to experience the real Thai massage than you must go to Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage School inside the Wat Pho. But a warning - it can be very painful!

I went there for a massage but ended up having acute body pain after the massage. Before the massage I was all good but after the massage, my body was aching terribly. Dont go there for massage. I love massage and I go for at least one massage every week. This one was the worst I have ever had.

This Massage centre has a huge reputation, but in my opinion it does not deserve it. To start Thai pay 260 Bhart for1 hour Traditional Thai Massage whereas foreigners pay 420 Bhart. Told wait is 30 minutes, then after deciding to leave told we can walk to the headquarters, OK 10 minute walk, arrive and pay for Massage, shown to... More

Room with 20 beds or so for great massage. They are quite firm, so specify if you don't want to be massaged too hard. The masseuses may be tiny but they are strong!!! You need to enter the Grand Palace and wander around behind the Temple to find the massage school...but worth the effort.

This is the world famous schoo. They take VISA which is very important to travelers. It is crowded and busy. I did receive very good massage, but the therapist was distracted.

The massage school gives great foot and traditional Thai massages in an air conditioned room - great way to beat the heat! I paid a little over 500 baht for 2 half hour massages so a little more expensive than other spots in Bangkok, but it was one of the better ones I've had.

It was really great. Actually, it hurt a little bit when they bend my back. Anyway, after the massage is finished, the pain that stick to my shoulder for a long time is better, less pain.
