“A good cheap pounding!”

Vietnamese Traditional Massage Institute
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 March 2012

At 50,000 Dong (about $2.5) for an hour's massage you can't complain about the price. The blind masseurs are certainly very thorough but I couldn't help thinking that mine thought he was playing a very robust version of the 1812 Overture on a xylophone as he pummled me into submission. A totally different experience to the more subtle massage we had in Thailand but well worth the experience.

We want to have a good and cheap massage at we found it! It is a bit special with this blind people don't speak english.
It is hard to find. Look hat the Massage sign at the second floor. The entrance is in a small yard. Go upstairs and by 60.000 VND for AC room or 50.000VND for fan room. We took the AC room. There are 6 separations and a deposite box to put your belongings inside. Look it and take the key. The massage is a mix out of a traditional massage and slaping and knocking technique. But it is really good! Back, legs, arms, head.
Thus, the massage is good, but the atmosphere is not sooo relaxing. No music, no tea no nice furniture. If you can cope with this, than it is great!
The blanket was not dirty, but I am sure I was not the first person laying on it. So maybe bring your own towel if you are sensitive to such things.
I would go again. Why? It is cheap, a good massage and you do something good to this blind guys.

A sympatatic initiative the blind masseurs but they pratice a special massage technique wich we would discribe as " the restless hands" technique. Not the way we like our massage.
