One of the features of Asian life is the massage. It is a great way to relax and though at times it may appear rough, bodies lose their stiffness and after the end of a session, most people feel completely refreshed. Tourists on Vietnam tour packages can expect to be offered good spa and massage facilities at their hotels. At the end of a busy day, such facilities are a great way to relax before dinner.
Vietnamese massage has existed for centuries and probably originally came from China. You can expect to get knots kneaded out of your tired muscles. It may involve some very short term pain but that should not put you off. Foot massages that hit the pressure points on your feet can affect other parts of your body positively as well. You should check what is available and try a massage. All you have to do is close your eyes and enjoy it.
