The city of Chicago in the state of Illinois is one of the largest cities in the United States. The city proper has about 3 million inhabitants and the metropolitan area boasts a total of around 10 million people.
It’s the third-largest city in the USA, an important economic and financial center, and the birthplace of the so-called skyscraper. It’s also esteemed the most influential architectural city of the 20th century.
Anyway, there’s a whole lot more to say about Chicago, but of course we wrote this post to take a look at some of the best Traditional Thai Massage schools and courses to be found in the city.
