Bangkok Soapy Massage has got to be top of the list for any visitor to
the city of angels. There are so many Massage Parlours in Bangkok,
or should we say Sexy Soapy Massage Parlors
in Bangkok. This section was written by a friend who appears to have
been a busy happy chappy on his visits to Bangkok. There are two spellings of
parlor - parlour to suit the tastes of our British English visitors and
American English visitors. As this account has been compiled over a
number of trips (and years) some of this information may well be out of
date. The names of the massage parlours may have changed or they may
even have gone out of business. Nevertheless like most types of
businesses in Thailand they tend to congregate in areas close to each
other. So if your chosen massage parlour is not there any more you
shouldn't have to go far to find another.
Of course quite often the sexy Thai massage girls also
move on to another massage position either to a new massage parlor in
Bangkokor maybe into retirement when
they meet that special customer who takes her for the ultimate long time

ASOKE-DIN DAENG AND RAMA IX ROADS ****
This area is now accessible
by subway. Go north on the subway from Asoke station. Mona Lisa is near
Petchaburi station and for the majority of the massage parlours get off
at Huay Khwang station.
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
New Cleopatra Massage
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 Thai girls (supposed Thai supermodels) working in any of the Bangkok
The fishbowl at Cleopatra’s is on the left when you walk in, it is quite
large with some quite attractive Thai massage 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
‘Thai 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 ‘Thai super 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
New Cleopatra Massage
Experiences: I was introduced to Nok -
one of the sideline girls. We had chance to get to know each other on
the sofa before going upstairs to do the business. Nok showed me some of
her publicity clippings. She had appeared in many Thai supermodel type
magazines and showed me some more pictures that left me in no doubt as
to her 'other' activities. This was not some budding movie star hopeful.
This was a hot x rated seasoned star.
Champs Elysee Massage
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
targeted at the hi-end market. There is no fishbowl at the Champs Elysee
just a lounge with sideline girls.
Honolulu Love Boat Club
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 Thai massage 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
Honolulu Love Boat Club Experiences: Got to be the wierdest
shaped hotel in Bangkok. There were lots of Japanese customers there
when I arrived, must have been a coach tour as they soon departed
without trying out the delights of the house speciality - Soapy massage.
I have had many soapy massages in my times here in Bangkok but this was
the best. There didn't seem to be any time constraints and the massage
girl (number 69) lucky for me was experienced and excellent. I gave her
a good tip. I will be back Tom - Toronto
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,
karaoke lounge and health centre.
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 Massage
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 suburban 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.
Now easily accessible by
subway. Get off the subway at Hua Lampong (the main Bangkok railway
station) China town is a little north and west of the station.
Texas Cafe and Massage
Texas Cafe and Massage is located across the road from the Chinatown
Hotel, in lane (Trok Srai) next to McDonalds on Yarowrat Road.
Phone #: 223-3521
Comments: Smallish place. Cost is 1,000 and 1,200 baht for girls
in fishbowl. Or 1,700 baht for younger sideline girls in the Cafe.
Chinatown (Yaowarat) is not on the tourist trail when it comes to
looking for massage parlours. Do expect in these places to find that
English is not the preferred language and that Asian customers
Texas Cafe and Massage Experiences: I found this area of Bangkok
extremely depressing and was reluctant at first to enter the massage
parlour. I had been recommended by several friends that this was a good
place to get value for money. I could immediately see why. The place was
small and decorated in what I can only describe as 'Titanic' style. A
style that has not seen light of day for many decades. The choice of
massage girls in the fishbowl was limited probably the time of day - mid
afternoon. However I really would not feel safe wandering these streets
at night. I declined to choose a girl. There really was not much there
that took my fancy
Dave - London
Harlem is located on Maichai Trit Road, next to the Sri Kung Hotel and
across the road from a Chinese Temple. It is in between Hualongpong
railway station and the Wongwien 22 Karakada (22nd July) but closer to
Comments: Does not have a sign in English, but there is a welcome
sign in English on the door. Smallish place with about 20 girls. Cost
800 baht for girls in the fishbowl or 1,200 baht for sideline girls.
Harlem Massage Experiences: A very small yet cozy massage parlour. I
found the mamasan very pushy. I ignored her advice and picked my own
sexy massage girl. All I can say is that she was an expert and did the
business - Highly recommended from a highly satisfied (more than once)
Greg - New York
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
Phone #: 253-1502
Cupid’s Massage (Cupidy)
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.
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.
Cupid’s Massage (Cupidy) Experiences:
Got to be one of the best selection of massage girls in Bangkok. Shame
the staff up front are not a match for the talent in the fishbowl. Mike
- San Francisco
Took 2 new friends to Cupidy yest. As we approached the place we
discussed the merits of visiting the other 2 Soapy's inside Plaza
Entertainment. They were all for it. However after about 5 mins inside
Cupidy all those plans were forgotten - especially since these 2 mongers
like to squeeze the most possible fun from every stang. I was
disappointed at the number of girls on offer. We hit it at what used to
be the prime moment 6:15 pm. There were about 10-12 girls in the fish
bowl & about 20 sideliners. We had a good look up close & personal. I
was totally falling in love when some German grabbed the object of my
affection. Number 435 I think she was. I told the boys that if they
could wait 2 hours she would be back sitting in the same place. By the
time they had made their selection we counted about 10 girls sitting in
the fish tank applying make-up (late comers). Tiger said that prime time
is now closer to 8 pm but I tell you those young tourists were cutting
heifers out of the herd rapidly.
Yes Posiedon has the name but value for money Cupidy is a 4 star place
with loads of nice looking mid 20's cuties to while away 2 hours.
According to Tiger 1800 for fish bowl & 2200 for sideliners gets you 2
hours in the room.
Cupidy Plaza is very convenient near the corner of Soi 3 & Petchburi Rd.
Biggest knocking shop I have ever seen.
I've been to Cupidy my first trip lovely girl good time, but I was taken
for the only newbie ride. Annies just doesn't compare to them, but Ive
had more fun at annies, the girls don't come near to cupidy but great
fun factor. i'm a fan.
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
Comments: At Sherbert
you will find a mid-size fishbowl with about 30-40 massage 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.
Comments: 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
Embassy is on Soi 39, and is
part of the better known Embassy Karaoke 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
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
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 constitutes the (in)famous ‘soapy’ section
of New Petchaburi Road.
Mona Lisa Massage
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.
Comments: 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.
The next 5 establishments
are after Mona Lisa on New Petchaburi Road (outbound side), in order
Christina - 2115 New Petchaburi Road, just before the entrance to Royal
City Avenue (RCA).
Comments: Sign in English at entrance. A smallish place with
about 40 girls at a very cheap 650 baht. There was no hassle from the
staff. Sign in English at entrance. A smallish place with about 40 girls
at a very cheap 650 baht. There was no hassle from the staff. I enjoyed
a relaxed coffee in the coffee shop but did not spot a girl to my liking
at this time
Pornphet - 2235 New Petchaburi Road, about 100 yards before Soi Soon
Vijai where Bangkok General Hospital is located. There is a 7-Eleven
store on the corner of New Petchaburi Road and Soi Soon Vijai. If coming
by taxi get out here.
No sign in English. 20-30 girls in the bowl. Girls are divided into 2
sections, 800 and 1,000 baht. This is no massage parlor for the faint
hearted or for those who can not speak Thai. One of the few places where
even the papasan can not communicate in English. Most guys who are
looking to visit these out of the way massage places usually can speak a
little Thai nowadays. If you can't then this is certainly a place to
take a buddy who can then there can be no danger of any
misinterpretations with regard to price, schedule and of course what is
'on the menu
Pornphet Massage Experiences: Always fun to find a new place and
new girls of course. It was a refreshing change to find some fresh faced
beauties rather than the stale ashen faced bunch I usually come across
in most Bangkok massage joints. Although the girls seemed new they
certainly new how to take care of business. Well at least the one I
chose did. There was nor rushing the action and a one and a half hour
session was well utilized in every respect. Certainly a place I will
re-visit on my next trip to the Land of smiles. David - Stevenage,
Sign in English as well as Thai. Quite a luxurious place with night-club
type facilities, including a Japanese club. There were approximately 40
girls sitting in the fishbowl at the time of my visit. Cost is 1,500 or
1,700 baht. Note this place may not allow farangs from recent reports on
Riviera Massage Experiences: Well absolutely nowt to report
except the comments above were spot on. Showed up and was promptly shown
the door. Sorry no foreigners here I was told in no uncertain terms.
Never mind plenty more just down the street. Their loss not mine.
Hawaii - 2293 New Petchaburi Road, at the corner of Soi Soon Vijai and
next to the 7-Eleven store.
Comments: Sign in English as well as Thai. A smallish place, with
about 20-30 girls. The cost is low, 650 or 750 baht although the quality
of the girls was not high. The last time I was there (Feb, 2005) the
quoted price was 1,000 baht. The price is quite low but certainly
reflects the size of the place and the number of girls on offer.
New Stella Massage
New Stella - 2351 New Petchaburi Road, about 50 yards past Soi Soon
Vijai and across the road from the Morakot Hotel on New Petchaburi Road.
Comments: Sign in English as well as Thai. A smallish place with
about 25 girls in the bowl, costing 1500 baht. Also there were a small
number of attractive young sideline girls sitting in the cafe, for 1,700
baht. Last time I was there (Feb 2005), the price was 1,000 for fishbowl
girls and 1,300 for sideliners.

Road, or the same side as the Japanese Embassy, and are listed in order
outbound (going against the traffic).

Bangkok Cozy Massage
Bangkok Cozy Massage - 2368 New Petchaburi Road, next to a Toyota
dealer. It is across the road from Soi Soon Vijai and the Hawaii and
Riveria Massage parlours.
Comments: Sign in English as well as Thai. A mid-size place of
about 40-50 girls in the fishbowl. It is fairly luxurious and also has
large karaoke bar attached. The girls are divided into 3 sections, cost
is 1,200, 1,500 or 1,700 baht. Sideline girls in the lounge area are
2,000 baht, while girls in the VIP room are 3,000 baht.

Meree - New Petchaburi Road, near the Ekami Expressway and across the
road from the FoodLand Supermarket. It is also about 100 yards from the
Deluxe Place hotel.

kararoke, restaurant and the Hot Model bar. The fishbowl has about 50-60
girls, including some quite attractive girls divided into 2 sections
with the cost being 1,300 and 1,600 baht. Sideline girls are available
in the lounge area for 2,100 and 2,600 baht.
Evita Massage - New Petchaburi Road, just past the Foodland supermarket

available in the lounge area for 1,900 and 2,200 baht.
BIWA Cafe - at the end of New Petchaburi Road, near the Petcharavej
hospital and across the road from the Deluxe Place Hotel.
Comments: A smallish place, with a mid-size bowl of approximately 50
girls divided into 2 sections. The cost being relatively cheap at 1,000
and 1,300 baht.
Osaka Massage - is on Pattanakan Road on the inbound side between Sois
44 and 46. It is located across the road from the Neo kararoke and
lounge bar. Apart from taking a taxi to Osaka, you can also get to Osaka
via bus routes #11 or #92 that run along New Petchaburi and Pattanakan
Comments: An oldish place that could do with a new coat paint, it
has a restaurant and a fishbowl with about 30 girls divided into two
sections. The cost being 800 and 1,500 baht.
ROAD (at Uruphong Junction) ****
At the Uruphong junction, where (old) Petchaburi Road intersects with
Rama VI road there are two low-end massage parlors that cater to locals.
Bacara Massage is located at Petchaburi Soi 4 about 25 yards into the soi
on your left.
Comments: A small and slightly rundown place that is about 25
yards into the soi on your left, no sign in English but there is a small
neon sign (not lit) in English on the side of the 7-Eleven store that is
on corner of Petchaburi Soi 4. A small fishbowl with about 20 girls,
cost is cheap at 600 baht and 240 baht for traditional massage girls.
S.Botan Massage (PP Cafe)
S.Botan (PP Cafe), is located on Rama VI road at Soi 13, which is
approximately 250 yards away from the Uruphong junction, past the bridge
over Klong San Saep, and a similar distance from the intersection with
Rama I road. The nearest hotel is Sol Twins Towers.
Comments: A mid-size place with about 40-50 girls, including some
relatively attractive girls considering the low all-inclusive price of
800 baht. S.Botan is arguably the ‘best’ low price (below 1,000 baht)
soapy massage parlour in Bangkok.
**** 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
Snow White Massage
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
Valentine Massage (Star
Valentine Massage (Star Cafe). On Arun Amarin road, Pata Department
store side, near the corner with Phra Pin Klao road and the large
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
Chao Phaya 3 Massage
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
Chao Phraya 3 Massage Experiences: CP3: mostly older, definitely
more 5-7s, although a fair number of big boobs with an occasional 8

slum area) late at night if you stray down the wrong soi but it should
be OK if you stay on Rama IV road.

store on the corner of Soi 12 and Sukhumvit Road.
