I only went once and won't go back again. The place is too crowded and the next bed is way too close for comfort. A good massage should be quiet, slow and with privacy.

We really enjoyed this Wat and would recommend it to others. It was not near as busy as the Grand Palace and Wat Phra. The Reclining Buddha was awe inspiring and beyond our expectations. The Phra Buddha Theva Patimakorn is tucked inside the grounds and...More

Good massage and the masseuse was able to work out my painful spots. It hurt so good. One hour thai massage was 480 baht and the foot massage was 220 baht.

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

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

Yes, approximately 30 minutes wait time when we visited around mid-day. So, I suggest paying for the massage and collecting your token number. Visit the temple and come wait in the queue again.
