Massage in Bangkok

We are staying at the Peninsula. Could anyone suggest place nearby for clean massage? Would be going with my 16 year old daughter. No funny business!!

PS: a 1 hour Thai massage is 3,900 TBH at Pen.

I use the massage school at Wat Pho. It's cheap, it's good and it's out in the open. Plus you get to see the temple.

I suggest finding a blind massage parlor. At least someone will be getting a benefit. 3900 baht for a massage is little more than catering to luxury and pampering your body and fears.

I usually visit Wat Po Traditional Massage School several time when in Bangkok. But rather than go to the place actually in Wat Po, I go to the school itself in Sanamchai Road, about four blocks along from the corner of Wat Po where they have air conditioned rooms. The best massage you are likely to find in Bangkok and absolutely no funny business.

It is easily reached from the Penn. Just get the hotel boat across the river and jump on the public boat at Sabin Tamsin Pier and it is 20 mins upriver to Wat Po Pier. A great trip in its own right. You could even incorporate it in to a visit to the Grand Palace, China town etc which are nearby.

I think the cost is around 400 baht per hour. I recommend a two hour session for maximum benefit. If you like a strong massage, ask when you first get there.

I usually just show up and, apart from one occasion have always got in straight away or after a short wait. It is possible to book in advance or get the hotel to do it for you.

When I first went to Thailand, the first thing I did was go for a massage. In Thailand, doing the best massage. It was a great bliss and great relaxation of the whole body)
