Thailand Culture – Massage

Khao Sok Thailand Thai or Oil Massage
Thai Massage is considered among the best in the world, and is an integral part of Thailand culture.

It is a soothing way to unwind in the jungle. Our trained masseuses offer traditional Thai style massage, or a more relaxing oil massage.

Learn more about Thai culture and massage at Wikipedia.

Tip: Thai massage offers more long-term benefits, if you can deal with the pain :-)
