we love to go to get a thai massage every chance we get. we have been here a couple of times. it is very nice but sometimes you have to wait 20-30 minutes. the price is a bit higher then other places in town. but you need to visit the birth ground of the thai massage!

The massage centre is situated inside the wat pho (temple of reclining Buddha) complex. It offers various types of foot and body massages for prices ranging from 150-600 baht. I had tried the traditional Thai body massage of one hour and it was excellent.

What a wonderful discovery. A professional, clean & affordable traditional school. I had a fantastic foot massage after a week of hiking. It made me literally fall asleep for several minutes. Thats how much it relaxed me. In a city with uncountable bad massages on offer; this one is a germ.

After a tiring visit to Grand Palace and Wat Pho, we went for Thai Massage for 30 Min (260 TBH). It was Awassssssom. The massage released all the pain and refreshed us just like we woke up from the good night sleep. Can't explain much, you need to experience it.

While checking out the reclining Buddha we decided to take a rest from the heat and get a massage. I had a leg massage. It was reasonably priced and in air conditioned comfort.

We went to visit the Wat Pho (The temple of the Reclining Buddha) late in the day, so around 5.15 pm, we decided to get a massage. It was a bit difficult to find the Massage school, but it's all the way in the back inside the grounds of the temple. At that time, the wait was about 20 min.... More

This is the homeplace of the traditional Thai massage. It is in the same compound as the Reclining Buddha temple, although you must hunt for it. Very reasonably priced, you can choose from a whole body massage or a foot massage. Both are very relaxing! Prepare to wait for about 30 mins to get your turn. Absolutely worth your while.

My muscles were particularly tight from training so getting a good massage to open out the muscles was great. She really got in there and wasnt afraid to use pressure (elbows and feet!) and kept asking if i was ok. I also have a tight lower back so she concentrated on stretching it out and it seems to have worked... More

There are better massages to be found in BKK even though this is thought to be the premier training facility for traditional Thai Massage

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.
