My neighbor recommended to stop by and get a Thai massage after visiting Wat Pho. It was just what I needed after a long hot day. My husband who never had a massage before even agreed to do it because it was affordable. We didn't make a reservation before hand and we waited just about 5 minutes to get in.... More

My husband (after a bit of prodding) and I had a 30 minute full body massage. The $8 price tag was great. It was a professionally run operation that is clean. The staff was also friendly and made our son and friend feel welcome and comfortable while my husband and I were treated to a massage. This is not your... More

At Wat Pho you are sure to get a real Thai Massage.. this is a real difference when compared with the street massages you can get all around the touristic parts in Bangkok. The place is very clean and the students are professional. They will ask you what level of pressure you would like to go for (the massage can... More

I could not come to Thailand to learn thai massage and not take a glimpse from the famous Wat Pho School while i was in Bangkok. It is a very professional and organized course and i was glad i took it. It certainly maintains the reputaion. Thank you.

Very good massage School. Thank you for your time and attention. It is more accupuncture and i love the atmosphere. A little bit pricy but i guess you are paying for the name. Recomended to people who want to study.

Wat Pho temple is the home of the enormous Reclining Buddha as well as the birthplace of the traditional Thai massage. After an amazing visit to pay respect to and be totally overwhelmed by the tantalising Reclining Buddha what could be more called for than an authentic Thai massage. Just a few minutes walk from the pavilion housing the Reclining... More

Really nice to get after an afternoon of visit under the sun. We got one foot massage and one Thai massage, both were really good. Clean and very professional staff. High value for money.

A great experience after a long afternoon in the sun. We both had a 30 minute massage for just under £10. We both felt so much better afterwards. Since coming back to Bristol we looked up Thai Massage Practitioners who are charging 10 times the price!
