After a day or days of intense tourism walking all over town to explore little alleys, squares, views and visiting all the must see museums and churches the body might hurt and it’s time for some well deserved relaxation. If you’re a fan of massages I can really recommend this center for Thai massage.
At Silathai there are several options. I enjoy both the more physical and strong “traditional” Thai massage where you wear a sort of pyjama (they give you one to wear) and get pulled and bent so that you can hear the joints and muscles in the body pop and crackle, (but in a good way!) and the more relaxing, but still deep tissue, oil massages. During the oil massage you lay down and relax more and there’s only a small optional part towards the end of the massage when you can stretch out the neck and back in a more “active” way.
The best part of Silathai is that from the first step inside this lovely place you feel calm and de-stressed. I can recommend taking the extra time to stay for a cup of tea after the massage and really make the most of the relaxing experience.
