Massage and spa treatments are everywhere in Bangkok. On the grounds of Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) on Sanam Chai road next to the Grand Palace, try a massage at Bangkok’s oldest massage school—a great place to connect to the roots of this ancient discipline that aims to refresh the spirit as it loosens the muscles from a day of site seeing.
Even better, try your hand at the Thai traditional massage training course at the Temple’s Traditional Medical and Massage School.
