Hi there. I will be staying at the Grand Sukhumvit Hotel. Do you know if there are plenty of massage places around there? Not the more expensive spa places. Are they all quite good and what should I expect to pay? thanks

I know that opposite to the Pratunam Market there are about 6 - 8 massage shop to choose from. They are not those high-end one.

I tired the full body massage at one of those shops. The "room" was just making up of curtains drawn together. They will do a fast foot rub before bringing you to your "room". Dim lighted "room" with sound music in the background.

One thing bad for me are the girls. They kept talking among themselves while providing the massage.

But for the price of 190 Baht (if I dun remember wrongly) for an hour session of full body massage, it was money worth it.

Hope you found yours enjoyable too.

Yes there are med'..although it's a bit of trial and error trying to find a massage/massager that you are happy with in the umpteen massage places around town!There is one just up near 7/11 on soi 6 which is worth a visit..90 minute massage 350 baht depending on the type you choose

Phunnee Massage I think it's called!

Yes there are lots in that area. Just take a look at the shop pick a clean one that you feel comfortable with and go for it. There is usually a menu out the front with the prices for oil massage, foot massage, coconut oil massage, hot oil massage (linament), pedicure, manicure etc. There is a place at the foot of Nana Bts on the corner of Soi 8 that is really good. It has a waterfall out the front. Average price for 60 mins is 350 baht.

If you want to do something different and get out of the tourist area and go where the Thais go. Then take the BTS to On Nut station and follow the instructions at bangkok-travel-ideas.com/thai-massage.html

For example:

Pricing is 100 Baht for one hour or 200 Baht for two hours for a Thai Massage or 350 Baht for one hour Oil Massage (90 minutes 400 Baht)

There are photos of sign boards of other prices that you can look at.

The Thai Massage can sometimes be a litle strong as they cater for Thais, but "bow bow" will make it softer. Don't expect them to speak English.

Massage places everywhere....

100bht hr thai or 200bht hr for oil (in house massage at hotels or spas will be significantly more)

My advice if you find a good one - just stick with the same lady always. Bit hit or miss on finding good ones.

There are plenty of massage places all around bangkok. If you want a great massage, then go to Wat Po. They have a massage school on grounds. At Wat Po they will perform every technique of massage on you. You will be stretched like you have never been stretched before. It is a good idea to get a couple of massages elsewhere first:, so that when you go to Wat Po, your muscles won't be too tight.
