"Thai Massage" Massages Tip by koolkatz_76

Massages, Chiang Mai: 27 reviews and 29 photos

Thailand is famous for its unique brand of massage, which involves a lot of stretching and is done oil-free.

I really enjoy a good Thai massage and of course didn't pass up the opportunity while I was in Chiang Mai.

Massages are readily available, from full blown spas to dingy little shops. Shop around for the best rates, but typically a 1-hour massage can be had for about THB200, which is roughly USD7. Spa resorts will typically cream you off for about 50-100% more, but of course the ambience and "professionalism" will be different.

Be careful of massage parlours which are really offering "additional" services for men.
