You have never been to Thailand Bangkok if you have yet to try out the traditional Thai body massage. If you belong to those of less adventurous, you still gotta try out the traditional Thai foot massage! After all, what other better ways to rest your tired legs after many days of non-stop shopping and sight seeing!
Good news is, you don’t have to travel far to get your body or legs fixed and all set for another few days of more sight seeing and shopping, if you are staying in Pratunam area. Tucked in one of the Sois along Petchburi Road (the main road facing Platinum Fashion Mall Bangkok), there are several massage outlets where you get to enjoy hours of relaxing massage at less than USD 10 bucks!
Head to Petchburi Soi 15 (opposite Platinum Fashion Mall and just adjacent to Shibuya Shopping Mall / Glow Pratunam Hotel) and you will be greeted with a handful of massage outlets lined up on both sides of the soi.
Number One Massage Bangkok
One of the most frequented massage outlets which seems to attract a steady stream of customers is “Number One Massage” outlet which is located along Petchburi Soi 15. It’s the longest standing and biggest outlet (spanning 3 levels) which you can find along the soi. Nicely decorated with clean furnishings and what seems to be an army of masseurs ever ready to be called upon, you do not have to wait for long before you are ushered to your seat for foot massage or upstairs if you are all set for a full body massage.
