10 Bangkok Thai Massage Parlours Near BTS Stations For When Your Feet & Back Ache From Backpacking

Thai massage parlours near Bangkok BTS stations

Although Thais swear by their cars, if you’re a visitor to Bangkok, you’re probably going to be spending 90% of your time travelling on foot. All that walking to all the delicious food stalls and beautiful temples will sure to get your feet sore and make your back hurt. So we’ve compiled a list of some traditional Thai massage parlours, beloved by locals and tourists, that are located near BTS stations.

Here are the spots you want to keep in mind next time you’re backpacking in Bangkok.

What do I need to know before going to a Thai massage?

Thai massages are a full-body experience that’ll help with muscle soreness, especially those you might be experiencing from all that walking in Bangkok. This includes a lot of stretching and stronger massages that might have you yelping at times, but leave you feeling very relaxed by the end.

Before going in, you’ll want to enjoy a light meal comprising of foods like fruits. This’ll help you feel full without being nauseous.

You should also communicate to your massage therapist about what you’re comfortable with. Most of the places on this list will have therapists who are capable of speaking some English, but if need be here’s a few Thai words you’ll want to remember: “ขอหนักๆ (Kho Nak Nak)”  means “heavier please.”

How is a Thai massage different from other types of massages?

Unlike regular massages, you’ll often be on a floor mat or a massage table with supporting handle rails above. That’s because this’ll allow the massage therapist to use their entire body to massage you. Yes, this means they’ll be using their legs, feet, and knees to help you get a full stretch and a stronger massage in.

They’ll also climb on top and all over you so that they can get into position to really manipulate your body into strong stretches that’ll leave your body feeling re-energized.

You’ll also often be fully, but lightly, clothed. This is different from regular full-body massages where you’re expected to taking off your clothes for direct access to your muscles.

Lek Massage is a fairly large massage business with 16 branches located around BTS stations in the heart of Bangkok, so you’ll never be far from one. But we want to bring your attention to this particular branch, Lek Gold, located near BTS Phrom Phong. 

With the massage parlour sitting in the midst of the shopping district, this place is perfect for some R&R after some vigorous shopping. 

As clearly indicated by its name and apparent by its decor, this particular branch is one of their luxury ones. With the gratuitous amounts of gold the massage parlour is decked with, we wouldn’t blame you for thinking you’ve gone into a quirky streetside palace.

The Silom area – home to the infamous Patpong, Thailand’s original red light district, and Silom Soi 2 – is home to a lot of businesses based in Bangkok. That’s why the Silom area is also home to a lot of businesses that help office workers wind down and relax for the day, in more ways than one. 

But not everyone wants to wind down that way. So if you find yourself as an expat or working in the Silom area, Olivia Massage is a great place to get a Thai massage without having to worry about being offered “special service”.

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Siam the heart of modern Bangkok. With so many people passing through, any massage parlour here will have to do its best to stand out. NAPAR does it with its minimalist decor and modern vibes.

Thus far, the massage parlours we’ve recommended either have very down-to-earth street-side Thai vibes or over-the-top luxury. On the other hand, NAPAR looks more like a trendy cafe than a Thai massage parlour. 

Don’t let that fool you though, because they are highly recommended by local customers who come here after hours of walking in the temples and malls. NAPAR is well-regarded for their comfortable seats and cleanliness. 

Plus, at ฿300 per hour each for a foot massage or a Thai massage, it’s quite the bargain given its expensive location.

The massage parlour sits snug in Siam Square Soi 5. Despite its tight squeeze, the decor manages to still give you a clean and homey feel with just enough space to feel comfortable.
