The Massage School is located inside the Wat Pho (Temple of Reclining Buddha) territory. They have 30 min or 1 hr massage, foot or Thai full body. You can come earlier, get a number and if there is a line (which is a frequent case) they will tell you when to return.

Decided to try a traditional thai massage whilst visiting the temples. Lovely and relaxing although did not like the beds being so close to others having their massages.

This is well worth the find. Thai massages are great, but this place is a notch above the rest. It is professional and methodical. About 400 baht per hour ($12 USD) I would highly recommend going here for a thai massage. Especially if this is your first traditional thai massage. There are massage parlors everywhere and not all of them... More

I'm not ashamed to share that my main intention at times to travel to Bangkok, is for the massage provided by the Wat Pho Thai Traditional Massage. No gimmicks, uniformity in services provided. Therapeutic, and most importantly refreshing and spiritually feel light every time you're done with each massage session. If you're in Bangkok, and you feel the need to... More

Nice break especially after a tour around the temple in a super hot day. The masseuse was great, the massage was even more amazing. had the 1 hour foot massage, my legs were rejuvenated and felt light after the session. Slightly more expensive than the massage you can find on the streets, but for sure also a better experience.

Wish I could honestly say that I had the best massage ever and that I came out transformed .But unfortunately nothing of the sort happened. The massage school is located at the back of the temple .There is usually a wait.But the waiting area is pleasent and has the all important AIR CONDITIONING . The massage area is communal with...

We found Wat Pho temple very interesting but the massage experience as the place for massage doesnt really have a nice relaxing atmosphere (but massage was cheap and masseuse are strong, which we like).

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
