Take a pleasantly surprising trip to Chiang Mai Women's Correctional Institution, where female inmates within six months of their release offer massages as part of a job-training rehabilitation program. Many visitors proclaim these massages the best in Thailand, and you can expect a wait time for the service unless you arrive early. Check out the cafe next door, where the program also teaches baking. Be sure to bring your passport. Donations are accepted for food and clothing for the inmates.
