We were able to arrange for two ladies to come from the school and give us a 2 hour massage in our hotel room. It was such amazing value for money (around £25 per person) and just the best massage we've ever had. It was very physical and quite strong but it was just what our muscles needed after a... More

real gem on Bangkok map if you health conscious. Affordable price, nice ambience, however since the temple has started charging 100 bath to enter massage I have decided to use the outside facility located just a few hundred meteres away near 7/11 shop

The first Thai massage of my trip was at the Wat Pho Massage School. I liked the experience of getting a massage within the grounds of the temple and it did not feel overly touristy like many of the independent massage places did. My wife loved her massage, however I did not find mine to be as good as some... More

Biggest reclining Buddha I ever saw. Beautiful temple and fun Chinese New Year celebration when I went.

it feels as if i walked into an industrial massage parlor. Everything had to go fast and rushed. Not a good way to relax. If your feet hurt a foot massage can help but if you are looking for a real relaxing massage, this is not the place for it.

We have been to Thailand 3 times and here 3 times. It is reasonably priced and has excellent service but you need to pay to enter temple site, it's frantic and can be a bit if a wait for a slot and we had an issue with asking for an hour but only getting a half hour. To be fair... More

I think the only reason this place is so popular that it is located in Wat Pho. I paid for 30 minutes, the massage lasted for only 20 minutes. Massage was subpar, as my masseur looked very tired, she was probably working for 10+ hours. There are many more options in Bangkok so dont waste time and money here.

You won't know what is Traditional Thai Massage unless you get it done at Wat Pho. The rates are 260 Baht for 30 mins & 420 Baht for 60 mins. There are other therapies available too.

The massage was really nice. I took a 30 min long after the visit of the temple just before sun down. I had a male masseur and he was really precise and noticed that I walked the whole day and he appeases my tension in the tights/ Legs with a lot of precision.

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.
