Worth a visit

Beautiful temple grounds - and amazing to see the drawings of anatomy from so many years ago for scholars to come and self teach themselves massage. Very interesting.

this is sort of a massage wholesale market but they seem to know how to give a good massage, an experience you must not miss.

We toured the Wat and then, like many tourists, stopped at the massage school. I had an hour-long foot massage and my friend had a Thai body massage. They were wonderfully relaxing. The facility is very clean and the staff are very friendly. The little shops sells various products and souvenirs. This is great way to spend an afternoon after... More

Brilliant place to be / and thing to do on a steaming hot day in Bangkok. The students practice there skills on you and you get a cheap massage. All of this in the temple complex which is a fantastic experience too.

This was worth the visit - its size is impressive. The statue is beautiful and the atmosphere is calm. Nice to hear monks chanting in the background. Worth a visit!

There were a lot of tourists. It needs to wait long time for body massage. So, we choose foot massage. But it was good. Comfortable and cheap.

I traveled from Bangkok to kohsamui, kohtao, and koh phangan. Had different massages on all 3 islands at different locations i.e. on the beach facing the ocean. With that said the best massage I got was here. It is not your typical massage nor venue as it is a medical school. However it is cheap and well worth the money... More

Fourteen days in Thailand. Fourteen massages. Okay maybe thirteen. But this was the best one. Pity they're that once in a lifetime thing, and I had to settle for the massage parlour at Robinsons for the rest of my stay.

I had to wait about 20 minutes for my massage but it was well worth it. It was one of the best Thai massages I have ever had. It's a bit busy and loud, but I've never had a quite Thai massage. Expect to spend a bit more than you would on others. It was 420 Baht which is quite... More

By Bangkok standards, this massage is a bit pricy, though it will be a fraction of what you'll pay in your hotel's spa or back home. Wonderful massage in a communal (read: authentic) setting. These people are the masters of Thai massage, enjoy!
