It's a school, but the massage cost was fairly high. We got 30 min each and the students giving us massage were not so friendly. They did not listen to us and what we wanted. Still, go if you are there, it's kind of cool getting a massage at the school.

It provides a basic ambiance with a great thai massage to relief my tired body. I found the 1hour massage sufficient and was much better than others I tried in Bangkok.

There are 2 schools in Bangkok. Wat Pho and extension school in Soi 39. I studied basic and advanced course at the latter. Teachers speaks English, Japanese and ??? and most students are foreigners. They are very kind and friendly, but final test is strict. Its course fee is a little bit higher than the branch. You can also enjoy... More

The Wat itself is remarkable the massage school is a very nice addition that many locals learn a decent trade. Not only have I been here numerous times but I have had massages from students in almost every corner of Thailand. It is an epicenter of massage learning.
