Thai massage or “nuad Thai”, which has already gained global recognition, has now been added to UNESCO’s intangible cultural heritage list at their meeting, currently being held in Bogota, the capital of Columbia.


A Thai delegate at the UNESCO meeting said that the addition of Thai traditional massage to the list practices is historic.

It is the second Thai intangible cultural heritage practice to be recognized by UNESCO after khon classical masked dance, which was listed last year.
