The traditional Thai massage definitely the best you can get in Thailand certainly do not expect a totally comfortable ambient atmosphere and there is not much privacy but for massage absolutely the best you can do. Highly recommended.

Having never had a Thai massage before and feeling a bit dubious as I have back problems, we both opted for 30 min thai massages. We were given two tickets with numbers on and told to come back on half an hour. We had a wonder round the wat and then returned for our massages. The masseuse was firm but... More

Head to the Wat Pho Traditional Thai Massage School. My wife and I stopped in after walking the grounds and touring the temples at Wat Pho. The staff was gracious and very professional. We chose the half hour traditional Thai massage and the only thing we were disappointed in was that we didn't select the one hour session. The cost... More

Can't describe the relaxation after 1 hour session with one of the masseuses. Professional, skilful, and truely authentically traditional Thai massage. It feels different to other kind of massages that I had in the past. Definitely come back and will have massage there daily if I come back to Bangkok again in the future. Overall, fantastic experience.

A lovely experience. They give you a nice refreshing jasmine water when you arrive to cool down. The massages are vigorous and professional. Definitely make time for it while visiting Wat Pho.

If you like your feet tortured, this is the spot for you. I have never squealed like this before. I would never go back to Shawshank, nor would I ever get my feet mangled like this again.

Found inside the Wat Pho temple, my friends and I got a one hour traditional Thai massage (420 baht each). Although each one of us have different sensitivities in terms of pressure, the massagers adapted to all of us perfectly, feeling suuuuper relaxed. Definitely take it!

Staying in Banglamphu

Neighbourhood 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.
