World's Strangest Spas

Chiang Mai Women's Prison Spa, Thailand

You don't need to have seen episodes of Locked Up Abroad to be fearful of entering a foreign prison. But people actually do come to this women's prison to relax. The spa is equipped with a large room with mats and chairs for your choice of Thai or foot massages. Inmates run the spa as part of a massage school prison rehabilitation program, and the cost of a massage is set aside for the inmates for use after their release.
