Wat Pho

Considered to be the home of traditional Thai massage, the fantastic massage center housed in the temple of Wat Pho is open daily from 8:00 to 18:00. (December 2013) Massage skills have been preserved here for centuries. You will be in really good hands at Wat Pho.

I suggest you to make a reservation in time because the center can get very busy during midday. They also have a school so that you can even get some new skills. A one-hour massage costs 420 baht, but it’s worth the price. After the massage you can also visit the temple.
