Lonely Planet review
The Vocational Training Center of the Chiang Mai Women's Correctional Institution offers fantastic massages performed by female inmates participating in the prison's job-training rehabilitation program. Despite their incarceration, the ladies aren’t career criminals but eager to turn their lives around with these new job skills. Those working in the centre are due for release within six months and the money they earn is used after their release. The cafe next door sells other rehabilitation initiatives include cake baking.
