As any visitor to Thailand will testify, one that country's most essential experiences is Thai massage. In fact, many tourists make it a daily ritual while journeying through the "Land of Smiles". These days, however, Taichung residents can include authentic Thai massage in their daily routines, thanks to Fantasy Thai Massage. Owner Iris Shu explains that she became a fan of Thai massage during frequent trips to that country and decided to turn her beauty salon (located opposite Smooth Restaurant) into Taichung's first Thai massage center over a year ago. Using experienced Thai masseuses trained to strict standards, Shu provides customers with full-body massage. This is either NT$800 for an hour or NT$1,200 for two hours--which, Shu says, is really necessary to enjoy a genuine full Thai massage. Since opening, her shop has seen a regular stream of repeat and new customers--evenly divided between women and men, Taiwanese and foreigners. "I think Thai massage is not only unique, but suitable for modern, high-pressure Taiwanese lifestyles, which leave many without energy or exercise," says the owner. Fantasy Thai Massage is open daily from noon to midnight (only closed the first/third Mondays each month) and advance reservations are requested.
