This Bangkok Massage Guide is for visitors to the city of angels who are wanting to find as much information as they possibly can on the topic they have heard so much about. Thailand, as you may know, is renowned around the globe for, not only its beautiful girls but also for its famous massages, especially the ones with a happy ending. You could say that it's all part of the Thai culture.
The information you are about to read here is actually a continuation of my beginners guide to massage parlours in Bangkok which might be worth your while to read foremost. So if you happened to come across to this page first, it's probably better that you go and read that page prior to this one and then come back here. Don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I'll be waiting for you to return.
I'll be telling you all about the different types of massage parlours, what type of services they offer and where to get the best value for your money. We'll also be looking at the extraordinary experiences you'll have as well as some of the challenges you may have to face. So let's kick off with the basics, and by that I mean, Thai foot massage. Thereafter, we go all the way up to the naughty stuff.
Thai foot massage parlours are just about on every street corner in Bangkok making them relatively easy to find, and with good reason too. All the walking you do will no doubt make your feet tired and will need a rest now and then. Massage shops as I call them, not only offer foot massage but the girls here can also provide you with a head and shoulder massage as well as manicures and pedicures. If you're looking for anything else, you're probably in the wrong place.
I wouldn't bother asking for anything extra other than what I have just mentioned above. Other massage services can be found elsewhere which we'll get to in a moment. Let's talk about Traditional Thai massage which in my opinion is best catered for in a spa salon at the better hotels. Having said that the better spas would be in the most luxurious hotels and resorts. You can also find many of these Traditional Thai massage salons all over the city as well as in the best shopping malls and arcades. I often go to the malls just for a facial.
For the more adventurous visitor, there are Naughty Massage Shops around town offering all sorts of services including full body massages with or without oil but certainly all with happy endings. These shops allow you to choose your favourite masseuse, who will then provide you, if not a private room, a semi-private room. However the likelihood you may have to share a shower is all too common. If you prefer, you can always go back to your hotel for a shower.
As a suggestion for this Bangkok massage guide of mine, this is what you should do on entering a naughty massage shop.... First and foremost, have a good look around at all the girls on offer. If you spot one you fancy, go to the reception desk and tell the cashier, manager, Papasan or Mamasan that you want the one that has caught your eye. Maybe the girl of your choice caught your eye too.
Many of the girls will smile back at you, making your choice that much more difficult. Prices for an oil massage in a naughty massage shop are usually 400 THB for an hour, 600 THB for one and a half hours and 800 THB for two hours. Just remember the prices quoted here are for the massage only. More for extras.
As part of this Bangkok massage guide, I would very much like to introduce you to some of the Teen Massage Shops in town. These shops are also sometimes referred to as Teen Spas. Similar in many aspects, but unlike the naughty massage shops as discussed in the previous chapter, these Teen Massage Shops are ascribed as being imperceptive. Simply put... You cannot tell the difference between what's inside and what's outside. You may just be pleasantly surprised.
Some of these esteemed teen quarters describe their businesses with erogenous names such as Angel, Love, Passion, Heaven, Desire and Fantasy in conjunction with the word Teen. So what you will find here are mostly very young and pretty girls. (though all are eighteen or slightly older) Selecting a girl is either by observing them up close and personal or by viewing them from a photo album.
Should you find a girl you like from the photo album and she is not immediately available, ask management when she will be on duty and then come back later. In most cases, if not all, Teen massage shops offer private rooms and showers.
In this section of my Bangkok massage guide, we cross over to some of the bigger establishments, many of which could easily be mistaken for luxury hotels than your typical full body massage parlours. A lot of these enterprises offer soapy massages which have become world famous. They often include a number of bars, restaurants and karaoke. Some even offer memberships for their clients.
The singular most distinctive feature on entering a soapy massage parlour are all the pretty young girls sitting patiently for customers to arrive, in the large glass-encased window enclosures, commonly known as fish bowls. Apart from their skimpy and sexy clothing, the girls display round disks on their bodies showing numbers or combinations of both numbers and letters. The various numbers or series of numbers and letters all correspond to different price structures.
Once you've selected the girl of your choice and settled into a private room you'll be given a soapy bath or shower, after which the girl will perform an erotic body to body massage. In most cases, she'll be completely naked or if nothing else, wearing just her panties. And all this while you lay on an inflatable mattress with your pretty girl sliding up and down, front and back, using either oil or soap. Just be aware that not all massage parlours offer the soapy massage option.
La Defense Massage Parlour may be a bit far from downtown Bangkok, but it does come highly recommended. You'll need a taxi to get there. The parlour is located at 333 Soi Yaem Nuan, Rama 9 road, next to the Royal Pacific Hotel and Catherine Massage Parlour on Rama 9 Soi 11. They have many pretty girls and are open from 12:00 pm until 23:30 pm. Prices range from 1,900 THB to 5,500 THB.

Cupidy Massage is a very popular soapy massage parlour and one of my all time favourites. The parlour is situated on 1543/1-5 New Phetchaburi Road.
