Bangkok, Thailand: Massage Cost & What to Tip

Bangkok Thailand Massage cost and what to tip.jpg

Get massages when you go to Thailand. As soon as you’ve settled into your accommodations book a massage that day. The prices are reasonable and you can spoil yourself.

Near our hotel was a place called “The Thai Massage and Spa.” It had wonderful customer service and clean amenities. I booked the oil massage with lavender oil, but you can also get a traditional Thai massage. The oil massage was 900 BAHT ($28 USD) while the Thai started at around 250 BAHT ($8 USD). That’s a steal for what you get.

The rooms were private and came equipped with showers. They give you disposable panties and a robe. The massages I booked lasted 60 minutes. But you can also get longer. After the massage, they gave us tea and cookies and coupons for a free drink at the in-house cafe.

If you’re staying at a hotel they will have a spa available. But, I would do a quick search around the hotel's area cause you’re likely to find as a great place for a cheaper price.


Tiffy Travel Tips

  • If you like massages book more than one massage during your trip. When I go back I plan on having a massage every day! Even twice a day.

  • A lot of the Spas stay open pretty late! So don’t let time stop you from having a relaxing evening.

  • TIP the masseuse. A lot of time it’s the only payment they receive.

  • Tipping 50-100 BAHT per 30 minutes is a good rule. I tipped 200 BAHT for my services.
