One of the best things about travelling in South East Asia is no doubt the possibility of having frequent massages!
For as little as 5 pounds you get an hours thai massage, so it’s a good time to invest in your own well being. However, sometimes a thai massage can be a borderline experience between pain and pleasure. The thai ladies don’t look it, but they have the strength of a tiger.
Much to our surprise, the kids picked up the courage to have a massage in northern Thailand. In the city of Nong Khai we had regular back massages and foot massages, and on the last day, our son aged 8 decided to join in. Once our 5 year old daughter realised there was nothing spooky about it, she asked for one too. The cost? Well, the girls at the massage place had such a giggle with the kids, so they didn’t even charge them.
