It was a nice massage, but it is expensive and I had better massages in Bangkok. This is place for people who like a "softer" massage than usual Thai style.

The 5 days General Thai Massage course gives a wholly different cognition to the human body. It introduces massage lines on limbs, back, shoulder, neck, hip and head above the muscles or beneath the bones. It also teaches various techniques to stretch upper/lower leg and waist and back. The classroom is clean, air-conditioned & having a really good view toward... More

The massage school offers good massage techniques for a reasonable price. Had to wait for 1 - 1.5 hours on queue. I visited the school during Chinese New Year, but it was worth waiting. Would recommend it to everyone!

If you're looking for an authentic Thai massage, of even if you're just visiting the temple and feel a bit tired, take half an hour off and enjoy the massage at the school. It's on the temple's grounds, and you'll feel pretty good afterwards, ready for another go at the city.

Wonderful massage with an amazing view! The massage was an hour long, my massage therapist knew exactly where my aches and pains were, and when you're lying on your side, you can stare out at the beautiful temple buildings. One of the best parts of my visit to Bangkok.

Actually it came highly recommended, but I was not able to experience it. This place is part of the Wat Pho temple complex, and a majority of the people visiting the temple head for the massage centre, creating long waiting times. The place is now airconditioned and the prices lower than hotel spas but higher than other places in Bangkok.

I'm not at pro in massages - I don't get many, so maybe that's why I found this one quite painful (though I usually prefer higher pressure). They definitely seemed to know what they were doing and I'd say it was a unique massage - they massaged me in ways I've never been massaged (using their hands / arms differently,... More
