Let’s face it, if we could have a massage every hour of every day, we would. But then, it wouldn’t leave us much time to do other things like travel the world and ummm, work. Luckily for you (and us), our work does (sometimes) involve getting spa treatments around the world, so here are our top 5 best Asia spas.
