First I went to the new women's prison and then I went to tye correct one. by the time I had found the right one all appointments had been taken so my review is based on the ambience and the outside cafe which all seemed very pleasant. However, I just happened to spot a signpost directing me to a massage... More

Go early- my husband and I were lucky enough to get in before they filled up. We got a one hour foot massage for 200 baht and it was great. Its my understanding that a women are within 6 months of release. In addition to learning a valuable skill, these women are earning the savings that they will use after... More

For 200 baht you can get a one hour thai massage from a female inmate that is awaiting release within 6 months. The money goes towards her savings for release. I was really excited to go here and wasn't sure if I could fit it in my limited time in Chiang Mai. Then after reading that it could be difficult... More

My husband and I were intrigued by the institution-spa combo and vocational training program, and signed up, and both had great massages. Note that this place has become very popular, so staff recommend showing up early in the day to get a same-day appointment - walk-ins are unlikely unless you come a half hour before they open in the morning....

Massage was great, have had plenty of average Thai massages elsewhere and this was not one of them. So happy to support such a great program. Tip: inmates are not allowed to tell you their name.

I'd been advised by a friend that the Women's Prison had a vocational center where inmates learned skills to help them on their release, and that it was a good place for a massage. Its first come first served (although they will give you a time slot so you don't have to sit there in the meantime if its going... More

This was such a cool experience and the massage itself was fantastic - I'll definitely be going back. It took me some time to find the place as apparently there was another location that closed down but it's right by the Three Kings Monument (like right on the next block) and pictures that other reviewers posted told me I was...

Was not sure what to expect but we all had a good massage. The women are all very young but very warm and friendly. You need to get there early as they are very popular. They open 8am on Mon -Fri and 9am Sat-Sun
