If you have time to wash away your worries, then King Spa is your spot. This Korean spa is always open, and it's a culturally unique experience. In addition to the expected saunas and massages, King Spa also offers a theater, Wi-Fi lounge, water park with a bar inside the pool and children's play room. The food court offers Korean cuisines, fried chicken and smoothies. King Spa is as campy as Pee Wee's Playhouse. Although it's a Korean bathhouse, there are sphinxes protecting a gold pyramid sauna, the female and male bathhouses have ceiling art of the birth of Venus, and the lounge furniture looks like something out of the Rococo period. This is what makes King Spa an unforgettable experience. It's bizarre in appearance yet still delivers everything wanted out of a spa and water park. You could go with the intention of losing weight by bouncing between the fire sudatorium and ice room, or for weekend drinks with friends in the massage pool or to practice yoga in the salt room. The reasons are endless. To find the best deals, King Spa's website; the experience could cost you as little as $24.
