Thailand wants to break world record in massage

BANGKOK, June 3 (RIA Novosti) – More than 1,600 Thais gathered in four cities on Friday in an attempt to break the Guinness World Records’ largest ever simultaneous massage, Thai’s daily The Nation reported.

The organizers intended to draw at least 840 pairs of participants, thus beating the current world record of 232 pairs massaging en masse set by Australia in 2009. The massages will take place at four locations – in Chiang Mai, Ubon Ratchathani, Surat Thani and Phuket.

The project is aimed at promoting Thai massage to the world and health tourism in Thailand.
