How.. 100Baht an hour as of May 2019! It depends on the rate, it is only 350Yen (US$3.2) !

If I don't tell this to someone else, I can not finish the trip to Thailand !

Thai Travel Rep④The lowest price in Bangkok !? I went to Cheap massage!! about tip and price ...?

 

  

Super Cheap Massage Area 
Wat Worachanyawas

This is the second time in Bangkok, but I stayed at the same hotel (chatrium hotel) for the second time. In the location, it is about a 15-minute walk from Sathorn Pier (Saphan Taksin Station-Sathorn Pier).  (more simply speaking, it's in the middle of Sathorn Pier and Asiatique!)

I did not know last time, but there was this super-cheap massage area within 5 minutes on foot from the hotel.

 

Wat(=temple) Worachanyawas
Massage shops

around Wat Worachanyawas(the cheapest massage in thailand)

There is a temple called 'Wat Worachanyawas' where there is a Buddha statue. and many massage shops around this temple!

The orange triangle roof ↑ here is the entrance of a temple, but a massage shop begins from this way!

 

The inside was indeed a temple

Wat Worachanyawas

When you enter this entrance there is a Buddha statue ...!

 

Lined up the massage shops

In this building, massage shops line up on the right and left!

There are so many massage shops in the temple ... why! ? That reasons is...

 

The secret of cheapness
Massage school in this temple

There is a massage school somewhere in this building!

And there is a massage shop so that people who learned at that school can work, and also people who are opening a business, so it seems that massage shops are gathering so much!

So a massage shop around here is cheap!

  

The massage around here is basically 120Baht an hour!

massage price

The price you care about... Everywhere generally the lowest price is 120Baht ( US$3.8)! too cheap!!

It's ONE hour right?? C H E A P !!!!

And everywhere oil massage seems to be 300-400Baht.

 

And there are massage shops along the river!

Going further, I could see the river! There is a massage shop along the river. This is the best location!

 

This is a
Wat Worachanyawas

Buddha statue of Wat Worachanyawas

This is the Buddha statue of Wat Worachanyawas and it's 25meters!

It built in 1798, after that rebuilt. it looks historical temple!

There is a boat stop(name is Wat Worachanyawas) just in front of this statue!

Anyway, it's just the ceiling!   I think the taking angle was bad but really narrow ...!

 

 

 

Recommend Massage Shop
Blue Building 2nd floor

recommended massage shop

There was a Blue massage shop. (from the boat stop turn left hand). 

I decided to get massage on the second floor !

This Blue building has the first floor and the second floor, but it seems to be a separate shop!

The price was different from the first floor! The second floor was cheaper!  This pics price is the first floor one!

Location is the best
See the river from the shop

best location massage

I wanted to get a massage in a scenic shop, so I entered the second floor of this light blue building.(Unfortunately I did not know the name of the massage store on the second floor.)

The view is great!! The river is right there!

And there're a chicken and dogs! They're walking freely! lol

 

Rented pants for free◎!

At first you will be guided to the back of the shop…Apparently people who needed to go back were only those who needed to change their pants! Pants can be borrowed for free.

People in Thai pants were fine as they were!

 

Foot / Body Massage
100THB / 1hour

ceiling pictures

There were mats lined up in the room, and guided me to the vacant place.

When I lie down, there are many pictures of Buddha on the ceiling!

The radio plays a kind of soft music like the Stura.

Passing gentle time~

 

Male masseuse for male customers, Female as the same. 

massage staff

Basically, female masseurs are for female customers, and male masseurs for male customers.(There were also people who asked them to change person!)

I felt relieved that followed me like a kindness woman!!

I touched my legs and said,"Foot massage, one hour please!", she got it and started.

 

Massage technique and comfort depend on the Masseuse

foot massage 100Baht 1hour

My husband was also treated by a male masseur next to me. With the same foot massage, the method of treatment seems to be individual, and it seems that this male masseur was painful! lol

 

Sunset in Chao Phraya River is red, so beautiful…

チャオプラヤー川の夕暮れSunset in Chao Phraya River is redとマッサージ

Breeze blowing from the river, Calm sound flowing from the radio, A state where the masseur talks smiley...Soft and gentle time flowing.

Furthermore the river began to shine red. Beautiful sunset on the Chao Phraya River is right there. 

I was looking at the sunset while receiving a massage, the sun will slowly fall. Sunset in Asia is red and really beautiful !!

Tea Service
After the Massage

When the massage was over, I served a cup of tea! Of course it's free.

The tired foot in Thailand has recovered considerably with a massage for one hour!

When I was drinking tea, the dog came in so I took a picture. The dogs here go freely here and there, but they were relaxed without barking! cute!

The Price
Basically 100THB/1h

The massage shop on the second floor didn't even write the price and shop name, but basically it seems to be 100 baht per hour!

My father-in-law had a whole body massage, but it was 100 baht too!

It seems that this massage shop was cheaper than others because it is 120 baht for one hour everywhere!

・Foot massage 100THB/1hour
・Whole body massage 100THB/1hour
(As of May 2019)

  

 

The Tipping Rate
How to Give the Tip
in Thai Massage

The Thai massager seems to make a living with chips, so you should give them a tip!

 

The Tipping Rate

The tipping rate by massage in Thailand seems to be 50-100Baht, but basically the following seems to be common.

・If you receive a foot or full-body massage at a popular place = tip is 50THB
・If you receive a good treatment such as oil massage at a hotel or a luxury place = tip 100THB

In addition, there is also a thing to give 100 baht if the service and feeling are good◎!

From at least 50Baht, if you want to more pay or not.

We paid 100Baht, but in this case I think that no complaints will be said even with 50 bahts.

 

How to give the Tip

Give the tip to the person who performed the treatment after receiving treatment.

It is the timing of the tip, in the case of this massage shop, you may definitely be able to give after accounting.

Because I gave tip 100Baht immediately after finishing the massage, but she misunderstood payment of massage and received..

Or if you're giving the tip immediately after the treatment, it may be better to add the word "tip" along with the "thank you"!

 

 When we go out after we've paid, the view is so beautiful ...!

Take a boat coming from the right.

However, it is definitely difficult to understand, so it is good to check with the Boat's staff!  Who on board certainly, so please check with it.

 

Boat④ Get off when you arrive in front of the Golden Buddha statue

If you're heading for a tuk-tuk or biketaxi, it's easy to show a map and an image of the golden buddha statue!

From Saphan Taksin Station, it takes about 5 minutes by straight road.

Taking a biketaxi, it's around 30THB,and TukTuk, about 50THB!

 

As the 'Wat Worachanyawas' entrance is on the opposite side of the direction, it may be dropped on the opposite of the road... In that case, if you cross the road and walk towards the triangular orange roof, it will soon at 'Wat Worachanyawas'!

By the way,  'Wat Worachanyawas' is also very close to 'AsiaTique' ! It takes about 5 mins with TukTuk!(It takes 10 to 15 minutes to walk, but I think it will not get lost because it is a straight road)

I written the chatrium hotel where I stayed, and the details of AsiaTique, so please read it!!

If you wanna get a Great massage..

If you want to get a special massage in the city, It is recommended to make a reservation in advance!

When I went to a popular spa during my first stay, most of the reservations were filled up and I waited for 5 hours.
