Admittedly a trip to the spa doesn't involve children, but we thought we'd include a couple places we frequent as it is such a lovely treat. It's also definitely worth visiting a spa whilst in Chiang Mai - the city prides itself on being a centre of excellence on massage and traditional treatments such as reiki and reflexology. There are numerous schools teaching massage and other healing techniques and students travel here from all over the world to learn. The city and surrounding area also has a large industry producing natural beauty treatment and healing products, all made in the old, traditional ways. There are dozens, if not hundreds, of spas and independents throughout the city offering all a manner of traditional Thai massage, foot massage, aromatherapy massage, manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing and such. The two we've listed here both offer a peaceful and relaxing environment and are spotless. Both are also very popular with tourists and locals so it's worth booking in advance, especially during the high season.
