Finding a Quality Massage Center on Koh Samui

That’s not to say that they’re all bad though. It pays to do your research before choosing a massage center, and with Koh Samui being such a popular destination, any massage center worth considering will undoubtedly be mentioned online or in printed publications. As a rule of thumb, it’s recommended you avoid any massage centers that either don’t look too busy or aren’t mentioned anywhere as unfortunately a fair share of centers on the island tend to employ unqualified masseuses or engage in other dubious practices.
