Does the price matter when it comes to Thai Massage?

When you walk the streets of Bangkok, Pattaya or Patong you might come across many different prices on Thai Massage. The real tourist’s areas might have a slightly higher price range and the one off the beaten street.

I often wondered why the price of foot massage was always higher then price of a Thai massage but nobody could really answer this. This changed just last year when the price of a foot massage was lowered to under or similar price as a Thai massage.

Thai massage should be more expensive since they put more work to it. But in Thai way of seeing it they made foot massage more pricy.

The price of Thai massage

During this last downturn of tourists in Thailand and the problem with the airport 2008 the price of a Thai massage have fallen down as low as 100 THB an hour in the tourist areas. But the price of a Thai massage can be as low as 50 THB an hour if in some places were the Thai people go. I personally visited one of these places in Phuket and I can tell you they were as good as the one for 1000 THB for an hour. You could also order drinks and food while getting a massage. It is more like a place to relax and most of the customer takes up to five hours.

Different prices different quality

In my own experience the Thai massage places that just pop up in a shop house and make some blankets on the floor in an internet shop with a cheap price are not as good as the one traditional once. I visited these 150 THB Thai massage places and she called in the food vendor to take care of my friend. She had off course no real experience in Thai massage and it was two hours of boredom. That said the 2500 THB traditional massage is almost always as good as the 300 THB. I would never pay more then 300 THB for a normal Thai massage. For example Health Land offers very good quality Thai massage for a similar price in VIP rooms with TV. There is no reason to pay overkill price of 2500 THB some massage places charge in Thailand.

What did you pay for a Thai massage?

What Is Thai Massage

What is Thai Massage

Thai massage is one of the most famous things from Thailand. It’s something that most of the tourists want to try when they come here. One of the most famous Thai massage place is at Wat Pho temple. It’s famous because it has the reputation as one of the oldest massage place back in years.

Thai massage is famous because it helps you to relax, reduce stress, improve circulation, increases energy, increase flexibility, improve range of motion and centers the mind and body. So you can say that Thai massage not only help your body but all mind and body in conclusion.

The suggestion from me is that not going to any place say ‘Thai massage’. You have to look at the location and how the massage place looks like as well. Or else, you will not get the real massage from the trained masseuses.

For the ones who want to try Thai massage as their first time, I suggest you to go to Wat Pho temple first. The massage place is right in the temple and there is a long queue every day. The price is not expensive anyway, it’s affordable and reasonable.

From my opinion, Thai massage is famous because of its history. It’s believed to have been developed for more than 2,500 years ago in India which came along the way to Thailand due to Buddha brought the Buddhist religion to Thailand and so Thai massage came in as well. The reason why the most famous massage place is in the temple in Thailand because for centuries ago, the massage was performed by the monks as one of the treatments or Thai medicine.

Now you know that you should try the Thai massage as well when you come to Thailand even you don’t have pain on your body but at least you can try for the relaxation. I wish I can have some more massages when I have more time.
