Good food but very spicy!

The place is nice and quiet. It-s a good brake from the temples. Be aware that the food is good but very spicy!

To clarify, there are two places with prisoner-related massages in Chiang Mai. The other place is by ex-prisoners, though some of their photos are in this listing. This place has current women inmates who have less than 6 months left on their sentences participating in vocational training in Thai massage. The facility is operated by the Women's Correctional Institution. Went... More

I went for a 1 hour traditional Thai Massage and loved it. Would 100% go back. They wash your feet, give you a change of clothes, give you a massage, and when you are finished a nice cup of hot tea.

Easy to find location, situated in a pretty garden. We both had very attentive masseurs, who make you feel relaxed. We had an hours long Thai massage at 200 Baht each. We arrived at 8.30 so we didn't have to wait. One of the best massages I have ever had. After the massage they give you sweet tea in the... More

Purchased a 90 minute massage but it probably only went about 70 minutes. The girl half way through went to wash her hands but took almost 10 minutes and I was already walking home by the time it was officially supposed to have ended. My massage lady also talked the entire time to the other inmates/massagers which was not super... More

Best massage - Cheap price - Comfy ambient - The masseuses are former prisoners who play a social inclusion program, all very polite and professional, sure I and my partner will return to use the services at the massage center.

Went here for a massage on a rainy day. Worked out that they weren't busy and able to take us in right away. We got lucky to have a room for the two of us to be massaged in that had great working AC. The massage itself was a typical Thai massage. The whole concept of being s correctional facility... More

I arrived at 10:30am and was listed at 2:30pm for my 2-hour Thai massage. It was really worth it! All the therapists were polite and professional. My therapist was a doll - she knew I was having a cold and gave me some balm to clear my nose and massage my back. The Thai Massage was so great, I kept... More
