You don't have to take your massage class here instead you could chose one of many classes within the city mainly Silom or Sukhumvit or even better if you're plannin' to Chiangmai ot Chiangrai would be a better place to learn genuine Thai Traditional Massage...of course Wat Po is the oldest and maybe the first massage school but it's ever...

I have had many massages but the one I received from here was exceptional. My masseur was friendly and professional, but held back nothing of his expertise when it cam to working on the body. It was amazing and I felt totally different and energised afterwards. best massage ever. With oils it's a much more gentle affair, which some may... More

Thai massage is not gentle, but the more you get it, the more you like it. For $6 an hour, you can't beat the price at the Wat Po massage school.

This place is located inside of the Wat Po temple. Since this is the oldest massage school in Bangkok, we would like to have this experience. We had a Thai massage here and we paid 260 Baht/person for 30 mins. It was double price compared to rest of the massage schools in city. The massage was good but the place... More

This was the best part of the day. After walking past the Grand Palace to Wat Pho and around the Buddha my feet were tired. They felt much better after the 1/2 hour massage. It was great and well needed! They offer both full body and foot massages and are reasonably priced. Don't miss the opportunity for a massage here!

i know the place is famous. but it is crowded, with no partitions or even curtains, and what i didnt quite like was that they charge tourists around double the price as compared to locals. i know that this is a common practice with many places around the world but such a difference made me feel like i was being...

Had to wait for more than one hour on a weekend. Environment is not very good. there are no private rooms, not even partitions or curtains between the massage beds. The masseuses kept chatting with other so you may not be able find the peace of mind. In addition, if you have experienced good massage in major Asian cities, you... More

100. Bhat to enter Wat Arun. We have tried many massage places in Bangkok 'clean ones' and wanted to try the school. They told us that there was an hour wait, but if we went to their satellite office there was no waiting, so several of us with the massage therapists in tow walked to their satellite place. The tradition... More

This Massage school is located within the walls of Wat PO.. It is one of the best massage schools in Thailand. I had an hour massage and left feeling great.

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.
