“Best massage ever!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

After all the walking around the sites in Bangkok this is a nice ending to your day.

A Thai massage is usually done with your clothes on. The deep tissue and pulling of limps is not for everyone. They work with the muscle to work out stress or pains. It does hurt so if you cannot handle a bit of pain or have a medical condition it is not for you.

After the massage you are sore but you feel loose. The stress of the day is lifted. The next day you will feel amazing.

Only problem is communication. English is not spoken to much or well. So if you wanted to ask them to stop or work on a certain area it can be tough.

If you are part of a group, you can arrange with the local guide to have the massage in your hotel room. Of course the guide will have to let hotel security know.

Overall it is so worth it and will do it again.

Remember to tip!

“Go early to beat crowds - 11 a.m. is perfect”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

Get an early start at the sights and then head here before or close to lunch. We stumbled about the entire school hanging out and waiting for customers. Around 1 pm people were lined up. Excellent foot massage for me. Spouse had Thai massage and liked it too. Highly recommend if in the area.

“Best massage ever!”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

If you visit Wat Pho you must try the massage - sooooooooooooo good. We went for the 30 minute body massage and it was well worth the very reasonable cost. Very relaxing and gave us renewed energy for the next stop - The grand Palace.

“Great experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We walked around wot pho and had been walking all day. We initially went in for a foot massage but then decided to do an hour foot and hour Thai massage. We had to wait 45 minutes for this but it was well worth it. The masseuse really know what they are doing and even though you're in a crowded room with others getting massages, there is a peace in the room or the massages are so good and you're so tired, it's easy to zone out. Definite try if you're into massages.

“Great students”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

After visiting the temple, we stayed 1 more day to visit WatPho Thai Traditional Massage School. The students were really well trained to behave and really done a good job. They gave us 1 hour totally relaxing after a week of activities. Thanks so much and good luck.
