  • It is a massage performed by prisoners in rehabilitation center. Finally one Center like the others, if it is only the thai massage seemed sweeter than elsewhere. Do family. Attention come early before 10 pm to make an appointment if you need to wait until the next day.

  • Great massage good to see such an effective way of rehabilitating people into society-definately worth a visit.  more »
  • One of the best experiences I've ever had in Thailand. Very professional massage provided by inmates. At all times they ask you if you are OK. Very punctual, they do not lose a minute. There are different types:-massage 1 hour 200 baht (approx. € 5.20)-massage body 1 hour 200 baht - massage full 2 hours 400 baht great because they give you a massage at the same level that you can sign elsewhere and contribute to a social purpose of reintegration.
