A fantastic location, and step-back-in-time. Whilst tremendously skilled in massage technique, it is rather painful and unrelenting for his seasoned massage lover. I had to stop this massage before completion.

Professional massage within the temple. We wanted the traditional thai massage but too many people were waiting so we choose the foot massage, equally great.
