Well the Minister got the point, if a travelers just finished traveling from Bangkok then drop by at KL for a spa treatment. Suddenly the guys still got a hand from Thailand in KL. So the experience will be not so exciting.

One thought on “Foreign hand for local spa

  1. Well, partly agree with you on your point. If a visitors wants a different experience they should have chosen some local (malaysian) therapies.

    Else going for thai massage done by the locals, to me is more of less the same experience 🙂
