Green Bamboo

Thai Massage in Chiang Mai Green Bamboo

I chose Green Bamboo to read good reviews on TripAdvisor because I didn’t which one I choose every time I walk in the old town, I found a lot of massage salons. As usual, I was looking for the one close to my hotel, with good value, and looks cozy and then I found Green Bamboo. Actually, It was super good. They have a very strong AC but the therapist took me a wool blanket so I felt very good. Also, he has not so skilled but he has a perfect tempo. As the name of the salon, the room was full of Bamboo, felt good in Aian interior.

Khunka Massage

Thai Massage in Chiang Mai Khunka Massage

Khunka Massage, located in the center of the old town is one of the good salons for tourists in Chiang Mai. The lady seemed skilled to find my lower back was not good. I felt hot when she put the herbal ball on my skin but I felt cold with AC. It was ok. The restaurant on the opposite side would be great to drop in after massage. I chilled out for a while.

Wat Mahawan

You can try Thai massage at the temple. Wat Mahawan which is east of Thapae gate thought the big road. I found the Thai massage sign at the temple when I walked around so I tried. There is a big hall on the 2nd floor where you can take Thai massage. The building is not clean enough but it was ok. There was a fat local guy taking Tok sen (Thai massage with the wooden hammer) when I enter and a few guests taking massages all together. The young lady therapist was too strong to almost kill me. However, I was happy that I had a unique experience at a local place. The windows opened and I felt good with the wind and the sound of cars outside and the rhythm of Tok Sen.

Sunday Night Market

It would be a good opportunity to take a massage at a Sunday night market, Tha Pae Walking Street. You may not expect that they are well skilled but still acceptable. It should be fun. I asked for 30 minutes of foot massage.

Ralinjinda Wellness Spa

You can experience the luxurious spa at Ralinjinda Resort. I have tried that because the spa still not expensive comparing in my country even the 5 stars hotel spa. You may get a discount if you book in advance. I asked for the receptionist at my hotel to ask for if they have time. I was lucky that they did. The room was gorgeous. The packaged treatment I have chosen was “Elements of Life” which include body massage, Tibetan sound Therapy, and warm sand bed therapy. It was also a unique and experience for me. I felt good. I could take a break at the lounge to have some sticky rice with mango.
