I always make it a point to take my dad here when he's visiting Singapore. It's the perfect afternoon hideout before you head for a more active evening about town that includes a fair share of wandering & walking. I always go for the 45 minute foot massage which is excellent. Dim lights, unlimited pots of flavoured tea, soothing music & plush comfy chairs all add to create a rather cozy & delightfully escape worthy vibe. While the prices are certainly not on the low side, neither are they exorbitant by Singapore standards. Make sure you've booked a session in case they're running crowded on a certain day and pop over to the neighbouring Chinese desserts cafe for some yummy iced delights that are perfect to escape the humidity & heat in Singapore.
There are so many foot massage spots in Chinatown, it's a bit overwhelming trying to pick one from another. But I knew I had to go. I mean, reflexology is a must-do in Singapore, right? And I wouldn't dare miss a must-do...
Bath Culture Foot Therapy passed the sticker test (of the 15 or so stickers on the door, I knew of at least 5 of them) and upon walking in, I could tell I had chosen a rather high-end option. The seats were plush and came with not only the requisite magazines, but TV screens and iPhone docking stations. (It's clear these guys know their clientele!) The next bit was all a bit of a haze - all I can say was that it was 30 minutes of heaven topped off with a delicious pot of tea. In fact, I should have splurged and included the foot bath as well. Okay, and a head and neck massage. And...
30 min for $30SGD was a bit pricier than I was anticipating, but I left with happy feat, a soothed belly and a charged iPhone. Not bad for a Friday afternoon.
