Are you planning a trip to Bangkok and wondering how much a massage will cost? You're in luck!

The cheapest massage stalls are usually in the night market and cost between 150 and 200 baht (between 4 and 6 USD).

Sayamon Massage offers a complete, high-quality Thai massage or foot massage for just 200 baht. Angel Massage has a retro website and offers body-to-body massages with soap for an additional 200 baht. Perception Blind Massage was inaugurated five years ago with the aim of empowering people with visual disabilities. It offers a more touch-focused experience than in a regular spa.
Many massage therapists will often ask if you're okay with the pressure, so be honest with your answer. Thai massage is strongly influenced by ancient Indian Ayurvedic traditions of medical practice for more than 2000 years. Every part of the body is involved, from breaking your fingers and toes (releasing accumulated gas in your joints) to applying pressure to the base of the skull and even massaging your eyebrows. The massage starts on the feet and then goes over the head, gradually focusing on the main pressure points for, usually, up to an hour. Siam and Sukhumvit are the two most popular areas for Thai massages, and Siam station acts as an intermediary between the Sukhumvit and Silom line. There are some good guest-friendly hotels in the area, such as the Arize Sukhumvit Hotel and the 24 Inn, close to many happy ending massage shops. Most massage shops will speak basic English and prices will be announced outside the store.
