After lots of walking around the Wat Pho, stop by for a foot massage that will instantly relief your feet from tiredness. The price is also reasonable with 240 bath for an hour of foot massage that also gives you a 10 minutes shoulder and head massage right and you are good to go.

Of course one doesn't enjoy the total Thai experience without a Thai Massage, very convenient as the place stays open quite late and the price is phenomenal; it actually costs more to get a manicure than a massage

Went this morning with my significant other. Chose the 1 hour aromatherapy oil massage. B730(We had done a Thai massage at another place and wanted to be treated gently this time.) we chose our oil scent and were taken to a private room with two massage tables and a shower. After showering, we dried off and lay on the massage... More

Comparatively, the massage at the Wat Pho temple is of highest standards. We had 60 minute massage and could have well enjoyed the 90 minute. 30 minutes is too short, so plan your time accordingly. Despite the affluence of visitors at the temple, my friend and I could book ourselves a massage without wait.

This is one of the famous Thai temples that you should not miss. They are actually a school for authentic Thai massage. You can go there and enroll in a class and get a certificate...or simply go there to try the Thai massage...the prices are reasonable.

So I lived in Bangkok for 4.5 years, and was located just 500 meters from Lumpini Park. It was my place for exercise, especially when the temperature used to get a little cooler. You'll want to check if there are any events happening at the park. For instance, a lot can happen over Thailand's public holidays, and the park can... More

This is not like so many other massage places, adverting massage but selling other, less noble services. These masseurs are not pretty showgirls but professional practitioners who know what they're doing. This is the real deal, traditional Thai Massage. Firm hands which tenderize those tired muscles, ideal for the jet lagged weary traveler. 1 hr for around $5 US just... More

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighborhood Profile
Banglamphu
While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok, it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around Khao San Road. Visit at night to feast on road-side pad thai, cheap beers and if you’re up for it, some dancing fueled by buckets of Thai whiskey.
