Nothing other-worldly about it vs others, but it's consistent, quiet, and professional. When i go for a 1 hour foot massage, I get a good foot massage, in a relaxing quiet room, and it lasts 60 minutes. Sure I can roll the dice at any # of places for 250b and hear workers chat the whole time, guests making noise,... More

When I usually want to scrub my foot, I surely visit here. Their massages is always quite good, espacially for foot. Foot scrubbing is also one of the best in my experience. But, for Thai massage, I do not select here as a pleasant place and clean bed should be needed.

I moved to Suk 39 recently, have been looking forward to have a massage at Wo Po Sukhumvit branch for a few weeks due to it's reputation. I booked 2 hours massage with them today, 1 hour Thai massage and 1 hour head and shoulders. However, my experience was completely opposite from what it 'suppose" to be. The receptionist lady...

A true Thai massage was just what we needed, well priced and a wait long enough to give you time to explore the temple. Some people may find a bit strange as it's not exactly a relaxing massage, more of a sports massage but you will definitely feel better after!

Because I love Thai massages and similar deep tissue, acupressure, Shiatsu type massages, I thought it would be a treat to get one here since it's allegedly an awesome school for Thai massage. The rates are double other places in Thailand, and the massage I got was not any better. It wasn't worse, but it wasn't great. I had to... More

This place is an outright Tourist trap regardless of all the good, bad and indifferent reviews you might read on here or other websites. Just setting foot in this place and its surroundings (Wat Pho) should have alarm bells ringing in your head and inner mind. So we paid 520bht for a 1 half hour message and 1 one hour... More

Don't leave Bangkok without massage! With hundreds of choices sprouting around Bangkok, Wat Po stood as school-trained massage place to assure clients have proper and great massage. More Japanese frequent this place. You may expect a long queue. You will truly feel satisfied. 1.5 hours foot massage will cost you THB450.

Opted for 1 hour massage at 250 baht. The massage room is simple and each "cubicle" is separated by a panel and a small curtain which can be parted if you are going with a friend etc. Nice and relaxing massage. The massage experience depends on the masseuse and as usual, some could be better experienced. I felt my masseuse... More

Good massage if you like the real deal. Very firm Mat, semi private room, we went as a group of 5, they were able to accommodate in our own room. Very effective in resolving some of our party of "allergy" related issues. It's a wonder how getting the body recalibrate right can help.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighborhood Profile
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
