I don't get many massages, so if you're like me, read on. I didn't know what to expect, and I always find that they hurt a bit since I"m not used to them. But this guy I had was a miracle worker. I don't find thai massages particularly relaxing during, but after, boy did I feel loose and great. I... More

One of the most visited temples in BKK with hundreds and hundreds of buddha statues inckluding the famous reclining buddha, which will literally take your breath away when you see it for the firt time. If you have time to take in the whole complex its probably worth paying one of the guides a couple of quid to walk you... More

After pounding the temples in the heat of the Bangkok sun, this was the perfect place to switch off and give something back to my tired body. Tucked away at the back of Wat Pho, the centre may be not what some people see as a peaceful massage parlour. However, if you are able to switch off, and ignore the... More

After see the reclining Budha, then you can experience Thai Massage. You have to queue before it, and it's a long queue. Try 1 hour service.

Wat Pho is the home of Thai massage. There are murals, unintelligible to me, describing the principles behind it. It's a bit pricier, quite a bit actually, than other massage places, but they have high standards and it's well worth the $15 or so for the experience. Foot massages too for those who don't like having strangers' hands all over... More

Great traditional Thai massage during our trip to the reclining buddah. You pay first (I think it was 400 baht/ea or a 60 min full-body session) and then you are led to the next door building where you change into massage outfits (similar to US version of nurse scubs but larger) and lie down on mats. My husband had a... More

For about 300baht, enjoy a good 30min Thai massage that can relieve all the stress in your muscles after a full trip of shopping and temple visiting.

Since it's a real massage school, probably the most famous in Bangkok, it's a unique place to get a great body and foot massage. Don't hesitate to tell your masseur where your body hurts, or if you'd prefer he/she spent more time on such part ...
