This was my first time having a Thai massage, which is very different than the Chinese reflexology that is more common in the US. It uses many more pressure points, rather than kneeding the muscles. Walked in on a Tuesday mid-day while exploring the Grand...More

A little pricey (280 Baht for a half hour) but this is Wat Pho and the therapists really know what they’re doing. Felt so many knots pop! Feet felt amazing afterwards. A great relief after traipsing around this massive complex. Recommended.

This is just steps away from Wat Pho/Reclining Buddha and worth the walk over to see the incredible drawings. See where those amazing Thai massages were born!

The campus of Wat Pho temple is really heart touching. Located behind the Grand Place, Wat Pho is really amazing which you shall visit.

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
