Wat Pho Massage school
Above: Wat Pho International Massage school- very well known for its good massage. 30 min massage cost less than 300baht and reflexology cost about 320baht for 45 min. It’s safe and the staff have very good manners. Please arrive way before 5pm because the massage school will close at 6pm and you will be sorry that your tired feet did not get enough massage …. 🙂
