I usually come to Thailand for three reasons: to go scuba diving, eat ALL the food, and get a massage every day. All three have equal importance for me but I will admit that there are few countries which do massages as well as Thailand and where it is not the ultimate but an affordable everyday luxury. What is a traditional Thai massage? Unlike other massages you will have to play a somewhat active part in your treatment and there is no oil involved. The spa will usually give you loose pants and a top, so a Thai massage is perfect if it is too hot and humid outside to be lathered in oil. Mind you, the first thing I learned about massages in Thailand was that I am not the biggest fan of the original Thai massage itself.

Happy Ending Massage in Bangkok | Thailand Redcat
While they advertise Thai massage the women that work in these shops seem to mostly hail from mainland China. The Thai Happiness parlor is located near the previously reviewed Taizhilian Spa. It is right out on the main drag across from the well-known Landis Hotel. Those looking for extras would normally opt for the latter as is the case almost anywhere in the world. Once customers chose their service a woman on staff will offer to wash their feet in one of the basins at the back of the ground floor. This seems to be optional though I would imagine anyone with even the possibility of stinky feet would probably get better service if they opted in for this. After the foot wash customers are led up a flight of stairs into another floor with blue walls.
While visiting Bangkok it is highly recommended to drop by one of the many erotic oil body to body massage shops for men not far away from Nana and Soi Cowboy red light districts. Phrom Phong is where you go for hand jobs and blow blow jobs before a sensual massage. For every 1 soapy massage parlor in Bangkok there are at least 5 body to body oil massage parlors in Bangkok where guys can go to get differing degrees of happy endings fulfilled by sexy Thai girls. Hand jobs, blow jobs and full service are the usual options though today most oil massage shops have menus with rates that are all inclusive. All inclusive priced massage parlors typically have rates starting at THB for 1 hour.
Spicy food? Traffic jam? Shopping malls? Quite possibly yes — if you were reading some other sort of Thailand related blog.
