to many tourists this may seem like a mental thing todo but this experience gives you a chance to effect the lives of inmates you meet and you can buy some mad things from the gift shop. only in Thailand would a prison meet tourists

This is a review of the actual prison centre massage, not to be confused with the ex-offenders massage centres nearby, though both are worthy causes. The ladies are very welcoming and friendly. You are given a change of clothes and have your feet washed first. This was my first Thai style massage so I wasn't used to being moved and... More

I have to agree with some other reviewers, fantastic massage but the ladies chatted to each other a bit too much. Guess it would be hard to work in silence every day though. To be fair, me and my mates were chatting to each other as well and felt great after a top massage!

if you cannot get in just go up the road (north) about 80 metres and there is another message centre that is staff with prison graduates. They are just as good (there is not difference between the two establishments. Best message in Thailand. Hands down.

My husband and I walked right in, were greeted, given clothes to change into, had our feet washed, and were then escorted into a large air-conditioned room with more than 20 beds. As another reviewer said, the ladies were chatting the entire time and there are other people in there getting Thai and oil massages, but the ladies are skilled... More

Two hour full-body massage for $11 USD. It's hard to beat a price like that. The masseuses are skilled and friendly. Only downside was that they would talk to each other while massaging my friends and I, which kind of ruined the tranquility. However, it didn't worsen my experience all that much. Make sure you get there early to book... More

We agree with most of the reviews. Massage therapists were skilled and we really enjoyed out massage. Good idea to get there in the morning and book or you won't get in.

We pre-booked the Chaing Mai Women Correctional Institution Massage Training School 3 months ahead. The ex-prisoners were well trained with excellent massage skill. They made you relax and comfortable, price also acceptable.
