Thai Foot Massage

The sticker on the taxi ceiling with Buddha's footprints reminds me of one of my favorite things about living in Bangkok: foot massages. For a couple hundred baht, you can kick back in a cushy recliner for an hour and let a trained masseuse kneed, prod, push, and pull your aching feet back into shape. Thai massage is all about releasing pressure and enhancing blood circulation, and sometimes they tickle or even hurt a little. When you're finished, your weary feet feel like new. And so does your attitude.
