This was the best message we had in Thailand. Make this a pitstop half way through your day to re-energise your feet. Highly recommended!

After getting 30 minute foot massages at a small massage parlor near our hotel every day for three days, my friends and I decided to experience what our guide said was the real deal (monks train all the masseuses) at the Thai Massage school on the grounds of Wat Po. Despite the sign at the entrance that asks for quiet,... More

Let's keep this review real simple. What Pho is the epicenter of Traditional Thai Massage and Medicine. They teach people from all over the world in this incredible massage tool. I've been visiting this serene sanctuary for over 20 years and I cannot tell you enough about this experience. Try all their massages while you're in Bangkok. It'll be the... More

I go every year and I always stop at Wat Po. This year I decided to try the massage at the school. You pay a little more but it was worth it. Cost it 100 bahts but free for locals.

Great service with great results. Staff was competent with a decent level of English. After one day, the majority of my back pain that I had for years was gone. Definitely will be back when I come to bangkok.

It took me a long time to find this gem tucked away from the bustle that overwhelms the famous Wat Pho temples and the reclining buddha. I asked a bunch of students in a nearby school who were more than happy to point me in the right direction. I eventually find the place and pay my fees. I have been... More

I think it's the best massage I've ever had. In my life. So far. Just do it! It's a great value for your money and you will be most definitely well looked after. A must-do in Bangkok.

The massage was of quality, and good if you have tired of walking around the area, and can't wait. I wasn't tired, just very anxious to get a Thai massage in Thailand. I stopped here after touring the temples & Royal Grand Palace. The wait was not long, and they offer you free drinks. However, I found that massages elsewhere... More
