In desperate need of a pedicure and a foot scrub? Check out these re-opened nail salons in Bangkok where you can finally get pampered again.
Along with the dine-in ban being lifted, beauty salons have also started re-opening their doors to the public. Prior to September 1, we’ve taken being independent to the next level by attempting to groom ourselves. Whether that was giving yourself a haircut, painting your nails, or at-home hair removal. Though some may have discovered a hidden talent, some of us have failed miserably – to quote Cindy Lauper, “time after time.”
Thereby, getting a pedicure is long overdue, to say the least. To make getting out there a little easier, here is a roundup of some of the best places to get a pedicure (or a manicure) in Bangkok, with safety measures in mind.
