It's Been Awhile, But Who Is Left On This Board?


Recommended Posts

I'd find it hard to believe any western man (now) would be surprised there were hot girls for hire in Thailand. The bloke who landed at the Dynasty on honeymoon is either a dick, or he saw the price compared to a resort and jumped at it. Personally I'd blame the travel agent (to the missus).

This is my second account but I think I've been here since 2000 or 2001, never posted very much however. The board peaked when slimeytoad posted his soapy massage parlour reviews, possibly the best thing ever that I read on the internet, that I've read. Now I look here maybe five times a year, and quickly catch up on all I've missed. If you think its slow here take a look at delphi.com and the nanapong board, pretty much just a death announcement every few months.

Blast from the past.

Came across this old post from 'Slimey Toad' on Bkk Massage Parlours, tucked away on my hard disk. Apparently posted on 30/05/01 on the old Sanuk Message Board (UBB). I would imagine places have changed and prices have gone up a bit since then!


Slimy Toad's BKK Massage Parlour review (30/05/01)

Here is an update of my original post on the Delphi Sanuk board on “Some Information on some Turkish Bath and Massage Parlours in Bangkokâ€.

Prices quoted is what I have been told or paid, phone numbers from a card or from a publication "Exciting NightLife in Bangkok 1995/96'.

Further information from internet sites;








To get to this area head north on Asoke road from the New Petchaburi road intersection, near Mona Lisa massage, or that is in the opposite direction to Sukhumvit Road (and Soi Cowboy). When you reach the major intersection where the Fortune Hotel is situated; if you turn left this is Asoke-Din Deang Road where the Cleopatra Massage & Turkish Bath is located. While if you turn right this is the beginning of Rama IX road where a number of massage parlors are located including the Honolulu Love Boat Club, Juliana’s, Catherine and Victoria’s Secret. If you keep going straight instead you would end up at the many places on Ratchadphisek road, near the Emerald Hotel at the Huawy Kwang junction. Note that there has been reports on the internet that some of these places double-charge farangs and other non-locals.

New Cleopatra is on Asoke-Din Deang road, about 300 yards from the intersection with Asoke Road where the Fortune Hotel is, the large gaudy neon sign cannot be missed.

phone #: 246-6680

Comments: An upscale massage parlor, with some of the most expensive girls (supposed models) working in any of the Bangkok parlors. The fisbowl at Cleopatra’s is on the left when you walk in, it is quite large with some quite attractive girls. The cost of the fishbowl girls is 1,900 baht. If you turn right at the entrance instead, you will see a sign saying ‘members lounge’, you don’t need to be a member to enter this area. In the members lounge, you will find the sideline girls and ‘models’ the cost varies from 2,700 baht (sideline), 3,500, 4,500 and 5,500 for the VIP models. The girls sit in a lounge area and can be summoned over for a drink, talk etc. The attendants here are very personable in helping you make a choice. At the bar they also have photo albums with pictures of ‘models’ that are also available, the attendant highlighted a picture of one supposed Thai Penthouse magazine model that was available for 5,500 baht. Russian girls were also available for 3,500 baht.

Champs Elysee is on Asoke-Din Deang road, at the corner with Ratchadpiskek road or that is the Rama IX junction. It is located directly across the road from the Fortune Hotel and shopping complex.

phone #: 642-0300

Comments: An upscale massage parlor/entertainment complex targetted at the hi-end market. There is no fishbowl at the Champs Elysee just a lounge with sideline girls like Delia’s member club at Plaza Entertainment, or the lounges/members club that can be found at New Cleopatra and Poseidon. A live band is also a feature of the lounge bar at the Champs Elysee. The cost of the sideline girls varies from 2,900 to 5,400 baht.

Honolulu Love Boat Club is at 555 Soi Soon Vijai, Rama IX road. Honolulu is close to the Rama IX hospital (follow the signs) and is right next door to the Radison Hotel. So if coming here by taxi, tell the driver to go to the Radison Hotel at Rama IX.

phone #: 641-5757

Comments: Another upscale massage parlor, the building is quite distinctive as part of the front is shaped like a boat. Honolulu has a large fishbowl with about 40-50 girls, the girls in the bowl cost 1,800 baht. Also you will find here a fairly lavish restaurant, a kararoke club and a lounge bar with sideline girls costing between 2,500 to 3,500 baht. Note that the original Royal City Avenue (RCA) is just around the corner, for those who may be interested in checking out the bars and restaurants in this much hyped local entertainment area.

Juliana’s is located on Rama IX road, next to the Royal Pacific hotel. It is approximately 1 mile from the beginning of Rama IX starting from the Ratchadaphisek intersection where the Fortune hotel is located.

Phone #: 319-4645

Comments: A semi-lavish place with a Japanese restaurant, kararoke lounge and health centre. The massage section has a mid-size bowl with about 50 girls. Cost is 1,800 baht. Sideline girls seated in the lounge area are 2,400 baht.

Catherine is located behind Juliana’s and the Royal Pacific hotel, approximately 100 yards down the soi.

Phone #: 719-6672

Comments: A largish bowl with about 60-70 girls, divided into 2 sections. Cost 1,700 and 1,900 baht.

Victoria’s Secret is at 555 Soi Soon Vijai 4, Rama IX road, on the interconnect road to Hwuay Kwang. The soi to Victoria’s Secret is the first soi on the left off Rama IX road after Juliana’s, there is a small neon sign on this corner pointing down the soi for ‘massage club’. It is about a 12 minute walk to Victoria’s Secret from Rama IX road, for non-walkers a taxi would be recommended to get to this massage parlour.

Phone #: 318-8370

Comments: Part of the Davis Group of Massage Parlours along with Honolulu, Emmanuelle and Hi-Class. A semi-lavish place that is set back from Rama IX road amongst surburban houses and apartments, it features a restaurant, kararoke, snooker area, a lounge lobby as well as a mid-size fishbowl with about 20-30 girls, divided into 3 groups, 1,600 baht for standard massage girls, and 1,800 baht for superstars and body massage girls. Sideline girls in the lounge area across from the fishbowl are available for 2,200 baht. I was informed by the papasan that standard service for the massage girls was 2 hours, while the service for the body massage girls was only 1.5 hours.

**** CHINATOWN ****

**** NEW PETCHABURI ROAD - near Sukhumvit Soi 3 ****

The first 5 places are near the Sukhumvit Soi 3 junction (Mit Saphan) with New Petchaburi Road, but on the other side of the road starting from the Prince Hotel near the Makassan Road intersection.

Plaza is an entertainment complex that is located (back entrance) at the soi that leads to the Prince Hotel on New Petchaburi Road, across from the Soi 3 (Soi Nana). The main entrance is at the L-bend on Makassan Road. Within the Plaza there are 3 places (Cupidy, Sherbert and Delia) that offer girls sitting in fishbowls and/or sideline girls sitting in a lounge.

Phone #: 253-1502

Comments: Cupid’s (Cupidy) is located on the ground floor of the Plaza, you will directly pass the entrance to Cupidy if you enter via the Petchaburi back entrance to Plaza. There is usually a portable neon sign on Petchaburi road advertising this place. A largish bowl with 50 or more girls, the price being 1,900 baht (Dec 1999). The price in March 2000, was 1,500 and 1,700 baht for massage girls, and 500 baht for girls in the traditional massage section. Similar to its neighbours Vilunda and Atami you probably should avoid coming here with a taxi or tuk-tuk driver. The staff here are quite aggressive to the point of being somewhat obnoxious.

Sherbert is on the 2nd floor of Plaza and is advertised as a kararoke place, if you enter Plaza via the main entrance you will enter into this place. At Sherbert you will find a mid-size fishbowl with about 30-40 girls, cost 1,900 baht for massage girls and 2,000 baht for body massage girls. There is also a lounge area near the entrance with sideline girls, cost 2,700 baht. Unlike at Cupidy’s the staff here are quite civil. However, there is a surcharge of 1,000-1,500 baht for non East-Asians at Sherbert.

Delia’s is on the 6th floor of Plaza and is a member’s type club, although you don’t need to be member to enter. At Delia’s you will find some very attractive sideline girls (supposed ‘models’, students, office workers) sitting in the lounge area, costing 3,500 for locals/asians and 4,500 baht for non-locals. The staff at Delia’s are very personable.

Embassy is on Soi 39, and is part of the better known Embassy Kararoke establishment.

Phone #: 252-0393

Comments: The Turkish Bath and Massage part of Embassy appears new as of 2000. The entrance to the massage parlor is at the end of the soi. The bowl is small with about 15 girls. Cost was 1,200 baht, although after I showed no interest the attendant lowered the price to 1,000 baht. The price in February 2001 was 1,200 baht for girls in the fishbowl and 1,500 baht for the sideline girls in the cafe lounge area.

Vilunda (also known as Angara) is on the soi 41 just before Atami. It appears this place may have changed it’s name to Oscar massage.

Phone #: 251-6222

Comments: The girls here are in 3 sections traditional (500 baht), body and massage (1,500 baht) and superstar (2,000 baht). Similar to Atami, it is also a favoured place by taxi drivers and street touts. In Dec, 1999 the price was 1,500 baht for all girls of the soapy variety. When I was there in August, 2000 the price was 1,500 and 2,000 baht for the massage girls but after showing no interest and was heading towards the door the attendant lowered the price to 1,000 baht for any of the fishbowl girls regardless of star class. In February, 2001 I was quoted 1,500, 2,000 and 2,500 baht but after showing no interest the papasan asked me to name my own price.

Halem is located on Soi 41, opposite side of the soi to Vilunda (Angara) massage. It is owned by the same group who run the nearby upscale Plaza Entertainment complex.

Phone: 625-7926

Comments: The fishbowl is fairly small (20 girls), the cost being 1,500 baht. Sideline girls sitting in the cafe were available for 2,500 baht.

Atami is at 1573 New Petchaburi Road (after Soi 41), and quite close to the corner with Nana Soi 3 but on the other side of the road.

Phone #: 252-8907-8

Comments: Atami is a favourite with taxi drivers and touts on the streets and hence the price is variable depending on whether you go by yourself or are taken by a tout and probably your bargaining skills. The girls (~80) are in 4 sections, traditional massage (500 baht), massage only and tora body massage (both 2,000 baht) and superstar massage (2,500) one Monday night in early April 99. A week earlier, the price was 1,500 and 1,700 baht respectively ! In Dec, 1999 the price was 2,000 baht for all girls of the non-traditional massage variety. The last time I was there February, 2001 the massage girls in the fishbowl were 1,500 baht, while sideline girls seated in a lounge area across from the fishbowl were 2,500 baht.


**** NEW PETCHABURI ROAD - Asoke to Soi Soon Vijai ****

The next 9 massage places on New Petchaburi Road starting from the Asoke junction to Soi Soon Vijai ( Bangkok General Hospital ) are located fairly closely together and constitues the (in)famous ‘soapy’ section of New Petchaburi Road.

Mona Lisa is next to the Siam Hotel on New Petchaburi Road, near the corner with Asoke Road and across the road from the Japanese Embassy.

Phone #: 252-3955

Comments: Quite a well known place. There is no sign in English but there is a picture of da Vinci’s masterpiece on the neon sign. You should not go here with a taxi driver or else you will be paying extra. A mid-size bowl with 50-60 girls, divided into body massage girls costing 1,700 baht and non-body massage girls for 1,800 baht. Sideline girls are also available in the lounge area for 2,000 baht. The last time I was here (Feb, 2001) the price was 1,300 or 1,500 baht for fishbowl girls and 1,800 baht for sideliners. About 6 Russian girls were seated in the cafe and were available at 2,500 baht.

On the 2nd floor there is another boutique massage parlor called Monika’s, the entrance is on left of the main entrance. Girls in the bowl cost 1,300 baht and 1,600 baht, sideline girls were 1,900 baht.

I was told by the papasan that farangs and other non East-Asians may not be welcome at Monikas, however it was up to the discretion of the papasan based on criteria that included physical body size and Thai language skills. This discriminatory policy is not practiced downstairs at Mona Lisa.

Bacara Massage is located at Petchaburi Soi 4.

Phone #: ?

**** PIN KLAO (at Arun Amarin Road) IN THONBURI ****

How to get to Pin Klao ? The easiest way to get to the Pin Klao area in Thonburi, on the other side (western) of the Chao Phraya river to Bangkok is to get a taxi to the Pata Department store at Pin Klao, it is the major landmark in this area. Pin Klao is one of the major shopping and entertainment areas in Thonburi. If you are going to Pin Klao via crossing the Pin Klao bridge then Arun Amarin road is the first intersection, you cannot miss it as there is a major flyover here. The Pata Department store is the next block away from this intersection. Two massage parlours (Chao Phaya 3 and Valentine) are located at the intersection of Arun Amarin and Phra Pin Klao roads.

Although, Pin Klao may appear far away from Sukhumvit (or Silom), a taxi from Pin Klao to Sukhumvit Soi 3 is approximately 70 baht. An alternative method of getting to Pin Klao is to get the river ferry to the Pin Klao pier, if you are staying in the Banglamphoo area, eg Khao San Road, you can also catch the 2 baht cross-river boat from the Phra Artit/Banglamphoo pier. The Snow White massage parlour is very close to the Pin Klao pier.

Snow White is located at Somdet Phra Pin Klao Road, Soi 5 (also known as Soi Suwichai Damri). Soi 7 with a sign to the Police Station is right next to Soi 5. Somdet Phra Pin Klao Soi 5 (and 7) is approximately 100 yards from the Pin Klao Ferry Pier. Mahidol University’s Administration Office is next to the pier in the background as another landmark.

Phone #: 435-3523

Comments: Snow White is about 50 yards into Soi 5. As this soi is relatively quiet, you cannot really miss the place and its shimmering yellow and green neon signs (in Thai only) at night. The place has a mid-size bowl with about 40-50 girls. Cost is 1,300-1,500 baht. Sideline girls dressed in uniforms sitting opposite the fishbowl cost ~1,800 baht.


Valentine Massage (Star Cafe). On Arun Amarin road, Pata Department store side, near the corner with Phra Pin Klao road and the large flyover.

Phone #: 424-4570

Comments: There is no sign in English, but there is sign in English for the attached Star Cafe. This place has a mid-size fish bowl with about 40 girls, divided into 2 sections. The cost being 1,600 and 1,800 baht respectively.

Chao Phaya 3 is next to Valentine Massage on Arun Amarin road.

Phone #: 433-4667

Comments: Next door to Valentine massage is the 3rd branch of the Chao Phaya Turkish Bath and Massage. There is a large neon sign in English similar to it's better known sister branches on Sri Ayyuthaya road. The Chao Phaya 3 is very similar in design (but smaller) and atmosphere ‘ no hassle' to the Chao Phaya 2. But prices are ~200 baht cheaper than the Chao Phaya 2, body and star massage girls cost 1,400 baht and traditional massage girls are 400 baht or 1,200 baht for full-service. There is also a little ‘newbie’ bowl with young girls for 1,500 baht. The main bowl is probably half the size of that at the Chao Phaya 2.



Venus is across the road from the World Trade Centre in the Rajadamri shopping area. It is located across the soi from the Bangkok Inn.

Phone #: ?

Comments: The cost here is 1,500 baht, the place is fairly small (20 girls) and mainly attracts a local clientele. Have only ever wandered in.


**** RATCHADAPHISEK ROAD at Huay Kwang Junction ****

Another major area for massage parlours is on Ratchadaphisek Road near the Huay Kwang junction, this area is commonly referred to as ‘Ratchada’. Ratchada is a major entertainment area catering mainly to better-off locals and other Asian business and tourist groups. Four upscale entertainment complexes are located here, Cesar’s, Emmanuelle, Mirage and Posiedon. However it should be noted there have been postings on the Internet that farangs and other tourists may get doubled-priced at these places. To get to Ratchada, catch a taxi to the Emerald Hotel (Sparks disco/kararoke) or other nearby hotels such as the Merchant Court and Siam Beverley Hills hotels.

Cesar’s Entertainment complex is located across the road from the Emerald Hotel. The massage parlour is on the ground floor located within the restaurant.

Helen is located on Rama IV, near the Khlong Toei junction, that is the T-junction of Sunthon Kosa and Rama IV roads. Helen is located in the first soi off Rama IV after Sunthon Kosa road. If you are coming from Sukhumvit via Asoke Road, at Rama IV turn right and the Khlong Toei junction is about 100 yards further down Rama IV. The Khlong Toei junction is where you will find the well known Khlong Toei markets, quite an interesting area in itself although it may get dangerous (a slum area) late at night if you stray down the wrong soi but it should be OK if you stay on Rama IV road.

Phone #: 249-1548

Comments: Helen is a smallish place with about 20-30 girls in the fishbowl, including a couple of quite attractive girls. The cost is 1,500 baht for girls in the bowl and 1,600 baht for the sideline girls who are seated in a bench area directly on the left hand side of the fishbowl.


Along Sri-Ayuthya road there are 3 massage parlours. These places are within walking distance of the Phya Thai SkyTrain station which is situated on the corner of Phaya Thai and Sri Ayuthaya Roads. Turn right at Sri-Ayuthaya road and then walk about 200-300 yards.

Chao Phya 1 (J-One Café) is located next to Phaya Thai 1 hospital.

Phone #: 245-3381

Comments: The fishbowl (40-50 girls) is relatively small compared to the bowl at the Chao Phya II across the road. The girls in the bowl are available for either 1,800 or 2,000 baht. Sideline girls sitting in the café are available for 2,500-3,000 baht. The last time I went (Sept 2000) the price was 1,700 baht for girls in the fishbowl and 2,000 baht for the special (sideline) girls. Note the Chao Phaya 1 is owned by different management to the Chao Phaya 2 across the road, and pays a finders fee to touts and will double-price tourists if given the chance.

Chao Phaya 2 is across the road from the Europa Inn near the T junction with Rajadaprop road, and next to a Toyota Dealership.

Phone #: 245-5740

Comments: The girls are divided into 4 sections, traditional massage (sex at a privately negotiated price ~500-800 baht) at 500 baht, special body massage (1,500 baht), star massage (1,600 baht) and superstar massage (1,700 baht). Newbies (1,600 baht) are seated behind the body massage girls in the main bowl. There is also a small fishbowl on the right of the main bowl with ‘special’ sideline girls (2,300 baht).

Chavalla is just down the road from the Chao Phaya 2 and across the road from the Phaya Thai 1 hospital via an overhead crossing.

Phone #: 245-3003

Comments: 300 baht per hour (minimum of 2 hours) for semi-private cubicle. In cubicle area normally a BJ is provided for a tip. Private VIP rooms are 500 baht per hour, minimum of 2 hours.

As of May 2001 the Chavalla appears to have undergone a renovation and the cubicle area has been closed and only VIP rooms are available with the cost now a standard 1,200 baht for 2 hours.



Annie's is located in the Raja Hotel, close to Soi 2 entrance but can also be easily reached from the Soi 4 entrance to Hotel car park.

Phone #: 251-5680

Comments: A farang favourite at 1,000 baht (plus tip ~500 baht) but have never tried. Place is a bit small with about 12-15 girls.

Grace Massage is located in basement of the Grace Hotel, Soi 3. The entrance is located across from the Hotel coffee shop, down the staircase.

Phone #: ?

Comments: 500 baht per hour but have never tried. As the hotel clientele is primarily Arabic, the girls tend to be a bit plump.

Darling is located on Sukhumvit Soi 12, there is a BlockBuster Video store on the corner of Soi 12 and Sukhumvit Road.

Phone #: 229-4652-4

Comments: Relatively expensive at 2,500 baht, or 4,000 baht for a 2 girl sandwich. I believe Darling does not pay taxi/tuk-tuk drivers and touts a commission and hence many taxi drivers/touts will try to dissuade you from coming here and talk you into Atami, Vilunda/Angara or Mona Lisa and other places that provide a finders fee.

Chavalla II is located on Sukumvit Road, near Soi 34 and the Rex Hotel. It is located about 100 yards before the Thong Lo SkyTrain station.

Phone: 258-5374

Comment: Chavalla II operates similar to the original Sri Ayutthaya branch, although it is smaller and there are no fully private VIP rooms. The cost is 300 baht per hour in a semi-private cubicle area, no full-service but a BJ is available for a tip. As of November 2000, the minimum time was 2 hours, that is 600 baht.

Does anyone know what happened to 'joshingu'?


He quit all message boards because he was being stalked (not on this board, but another one). SInce he used the same handle on every board, he left them all. Haven't seen him in a few years, but I expect he is still in LOS.

The last ticket I bought was via an agent - it was substantially cheaper than 3 of the major airlines ( Emirates,Etihad and China ) flying out of the uk if bought direct from their web sites......surprising,I thought it would be the other way round :dunno: ps.that is one heck of a massage review....I never knew there were so many of those places :surprised:
