Dirty soapy massage parlours in chiang mai

Chiang Mai isn’t well known for massage parlors unlike Bangkok or Pattaya however there are a number out there. I heard a rumor actually that the local Chiang Mai government are not going to give any more licenses out for a Soapy Massage anymore so what we have we will have for a long time to come.
[ad#Google Horizontal]
Chiang Mai being a small city there are really only 4 soapy massage parlors to talk about:

Sayuri Massage Parlor

The Sayuri massage Parlor is the most famous and most popular dirty soapy in all of Chiang Mai, it’s an old hotel turned massage parlor and literally gets hundreds and hundreds of guys going through it a day, as you can imagine you want to get there before sun sets or you’ll be in for second dips, the earlier the better I say.

To get there cross the Nawarat Bridge, turn left onto Bumrung Rajd Road at the 2nd set of traffic lights after the bridge, there will be a sign that reads “Sayuri” at the intersection. Turn left into the second soi and Sayuri Massage Parlor will be 70 metres in on the left.
You have to go up the stairs and push open the door.

When you arrive order a beer or drink if you like or not and stair through the fish bowl at the lovely ladies. The ladies are groups in 3 columns, with different numbers on them. The different colours of the numbers and the columns means different prices. Ask the guy there what the prices are but they are 1000 1400 and 1600. Go there yourself without a taxi for these rates and if they give you different prices then just ask for the Thai price because these are the real rates. The expensive girls arn’t what you call new to the business they are probably just better looking.

For me I step up at the glass and try to catch someones eye because if they are looking at me then there is more of a chance that i’ll have more fun with that one. Just because you like the look of someone else more doesn’t mean you’ll have a better time so go with it.

Rates include massage, bath and of course the dirty business, have fun!

Ping Payom Massage Parlor

This place is just down the road from me and a favourite when I have the money for it. Prices are the same as Suraya but the selection of girls is much more limited. The place isn’t busy at all and typically foreigners don’t go there. The place is a part of the Ping Payom hotel which is probably the crappiest hotel in Chaing mai but cheap rooms starting at 250 baht a night!

Some of the girls here will ask you if you want to or don’t want to wear a jimmy. This makes me a little scared because the of the guys i’ve seen in there. Why a girl these days doesn’t want to wear one especially in that kind of work is beyond me. I took my girlfriend down there the day before her 19th birthday and they charged me 2000 baht for the girl in the window (she was 1000) and then the other 1000 was for my girlfriend, but she didn’t get a cut. At first they weren’t going to do it but then i talked to the manager. Being able to speak Thai fluently get’s you a lot more.

To get to the Ping Payom hotel go to the Pratdu Suthep gate along the moat (The gate opposite Tapae gate) and follow the road about half way down. On the 4th set of lights down this road you’ll be at a 3 way intersection. You’ll pass by a piano store and on the corner of the intersection there is a small shop that sells toast and milk opposite is the Ping Payom hotel with a big sign for rooms for 250 baht per night, go in there and the massage parlor is out the back in the car park.

Rooms are pretty crummy but service is great :)

phucome hotel

The selection here isn’t that great which is why it’s on the lower part of the list. But if you like some place that isn’t crowded you should try this place out. The people who go to this place are mostly tourists. Typically the guests at this Soapy Massage here are from other counties in Thailand and not necessarily for locals or Farang. For more information Check out the Phucome Hotel.

Chiang Hills Hotel Massage

Similar to the Phucome Hotel but even less girls the Chiang Mai Hills hotel is a nice establishment, view pictures here. Even though the selection is slim some of the models they have in there are very tempting. When I went however some of the girls wouldn’t do Farang but you get that in Chiang mai. The girls working here were from Chiang Mai and under 22.

Pandora

Pandora soapy massage is like the other soapy massage parlors in Chiang Mai nothing special it’s got the same Sayuri feel to it, little cold but that’s what most places are like. Like other soapies in Town the place is a little hidden but easy to find just look at the map. I do feel like it’s the classiest out of all the massage parlors in town though best checking out go there about 8pm for the widest selection of girls.

Celeb @CNX

Chiang Mai’s Newest and now the best soapy massage parlor in all of Chiang Mai! Has about 30 girls on rotation prices are 1350 for the average girls and 1650 for the better looking girls. Place is listed on the map, prices are better than the other places for what you actually get. I recommend!

    I went to the Ping Payom Hotel today and found the directions given here to be inaccurate. First, the gate referred to is Suan Dok; the road is Suthep Road (1005), which is the same road where Maharaj Hospital is found, on the right hand side of the street . It is not a long way past the hospital. The best sign for the intersection is on the right hand side of the road and you can’t miss it: Large, black with raised white letters “Chiangmai University Art Center”.
    Before you reach the intersection, on the left is a prominent sign “Bikky” so you’ll know you’re VERY close.
    The hotel is not on the corner, it is under an arch to the left, on the soi that intersects into Suthep Road, and in the front, attached to the hotel is an office with a nice blue sign, “The Terminal Journey, Travel Agency”. There is, as he stated, no English to tell you this is a hotel, and there was no sign offering rooms at 250 baht, but this is high season and probably not needed!
    I arrived at 1:30 pm, walked under the arch and found the massage building in the parking lot to the right hand side. Went up to the second floor and was offered a 2 hour Thai massage for 450 baht and 1.5 hour oil massage for 600. Evidently I was at least 30 minutes too early – I was ushered into a room and left with the standard Thai massage outfit to change into. When I asked if I got to choose the lady, I was just given a scowl. When the young lady who was to give me a Thai massage came, I asked her about the soapy….she asked if I wanted a young lady and a special massage, and then told me that didn’t begin until 2 pm. I’d already paid for the Thai, it was good, and I was offered something special…was really clean so I’ll go back again next week later in the day. Took photos of the outside of the hotel, Art Center sign.

      Thanks for the comment Bob, the pin on the map is accurate and maybe my directions were cryptic so glad you can help us out. You got there too early! If you go about 6:30pm is good that’s when all the girls are working.

      • Bob Rumraisin February 19, 2012 at 7:06 am #

        So that I don’t add more confusion, I went to the wrong place! The soapy is in the back of the hotel building and I went to a separate building that offers massage; confusion, old age. Go into the parking lot as described and look to the rear of the hotel building itself. Made another trip and worthwhile; much nicer looking beauty than any of the selection I saw in Sayuri.

        • Chris February 19, 2012 at 9:23 am #

          curious what price you paid?

  2. Daniel April 18, 2012 at 3:08 pm #

    I took a trip to ping payom tonight. Sadly I neglected to rent a motorbike and my tuk-tuk was pretty much useless. To avoid the commission I got out at Chiang Mai University (when I first went there in September ’11 I remembered a black sign saying Chiang Mai University Art something). Long story short it was a long and confusing walk to get there. Anyone else without their own transportation should get dropped off at the Pharma Choice on Suthrep Rd, it is a short walk from there.

    Once there I walked in and went to the fishbowl looking for the same girl as before, #17. On advice from another forum I avoided speaking to the captain except to tell him in thai the number of the girl. I could not remember the pricing system and handed over 1500 (I think that she was probably in the 1200 section, the middle). I did not complain over the amount because I should have practiced saying “1200 baht, correct” in thai before going (I’m fairly comfortable with saying thai numbers but froze on the spot). I’m not sure why but the cashier was mute the whole time, I actually waited for her to give me a price for the girl and I have no idea how to ask for change in thai. I cannot remember what I paid in September but I do recall the cashier showing me the amount on a calculator.

    Just like last time she was a star performer. The only downside is that my thai is as limited as her english so before and after the deed tends to be filled with awkward smiles.

    If I get back to Chiang Mai or stay a couple of extra days and she is working I will pick her again; however, if her performance is indicative of the rest I highly recommend ping payom. On another note I saw many beautiful girls in the fishbowl even though it was not overstocked (my guess is less than 30). There seemed to be a good mix of ages and skin complexion (I know some guys are pretty particular).

    Is it okay to see these girls off the clock or take them away? To kill time I asked to see her phone (for the photos) which caused a bit of confusion and I think she was going to give me her phone number. I know similar places in Vietnam don’t like the girls to see customers off the clock, but you can call/text them to make sure they are free at certain times.

      Great report man thanks the girls do go after hours but only if they like you :)

    A quick update on Sayuri MP from my recent short trip to CM. I went there 4pm afternoon, dress neatly so not look like backpacker. Asked tutuk to stop some distance away and walked over. I speak pretty good thai. The place seem quite small by Bkk standards and most of the girls looked horrible, not even worth doing for free. However one girl in the “M” class seemed ok and I have not seen anything much better in any of the other places in CM. To avoid getting ripped I went directly to the cashier gave her my girl number and asked price (in thai). She did not answer even I asked twice and called papasan over. He quoted me 3000 baht and even though I spoke to him in thai and told him I know the correct thai price from my thai friend he would not lower it even 100 baht. So I turned around walked out slowly, expecting he would stop me and at least lower to 2500 or something but no. For papasan a smaller scam is better than no scam so I wonder if this actually a new farang policy at this place?

    • Chris June 24, 2012 at 2:43 pm #

      I find your story a little bazaar because there are 3 prices in the place in fact I’ve never been to any soapy massage in Thailand where there wasn’t two prices, was that the price for the model or the scum?

      • quilty17 June 24, 2012 at 4:49 pm #

        Yes there are several prices the girl I picked had number starting with M which according to several sources is in the middle range around 1500. And I asked them just the price for this girl. The top models are starting with S and they maybe around 2000. The regular girls are supposed to be around 1200. The price I got was 100% markup for this class of girl. The cashier probably gets a cut of the scam which is why she refused to tell me the price and called papasan.This girl was about 6 on looks scale and prob 25-28 yrs old.

        • Chris June 24, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

          Wiered I never heard of that try it again bro, what day did you go on?

        • quilty17 June 24, 2012 at 5:12 pm #

          It was Friday. I am back in BKK already had to come back early. The funny thing is most MP girls I get in Bkk are from CM or CR and some of them are hot. I dont understand why they cannot have similar quality girls in CM places.

        • Chris June 24, 2012 at 5:19 pm #

          They do bro you just don’t know where to go! I can get a hot milky chiang mai girl for 1100 baht

  4. Mr Thingy September 15, 2012 at 10:57 pm #

    I’m an old hand here in Chiang Mai, speak reasonable Thai and certainly know the score.

    On occasions, when I feel desperate, which is becoming more frequent these days with the lack of adult entertainments in Chiang Mai, or the thought of having to apply for a bank loan so as to afford something even half decent, I use the SP at the Chiang Mai 2000 hotel. I did venture into the Pandora once and was quoted 2000 baht for something even my dog wouldn’t sniff at. When I argued the price, the nice pimp began giving a lecture on how much more this sort of service would cost me in Farangland, so on that note, I smiled and walked out. I could have spoken, Thai, Greek, Albanian, double Dutch, Zulu, English or Rubbish and still that guy was not going to give in. So when that happens, just refuse to pay those amounts and shop around. If possible hire a motorbike, probably the best way to get around Chiang Mai and no taxi drivers to rip you off.

    I always joke with the papasan at CMH 2000 on my rare visits, a nice guy who has a wooden leg and they do appreciate a jolly customer and it helps get the price down if they like you.

    Each time I have visited, I get offered several options. First, there is a choice of one hour or an hour and a half, but I’m sure most Farangs will not be offered that choice.

    For the bog standard girls, 60 minutes, 900 baht, and 90 minutes, 1200 baht, and if the girl gives a reasonable service, I tip 100 baht, never more, otherwise they will expect big tips if you decide to visit again, or start and you mean to finish.

    Each time I go, the pimp, steward or however you would prefer to describe these guys, tries it on with the prices. I stand my ground and say; in loud English with some Thai mixed in, I’m a regular customer here, and I’m paying 900 baht for the hour, even if the guy has never seen me before. Never fails. And if he starts giving any problems, just walk over to the papasan, smile and tell him that’s what you paid last time, you’re a good customer and is he prepared to accommodate you. That usually works. But be a little firm when you`re smiling.

    Keep your expectations low in all the CM soapies, because there is no massage involved. Just a quick rub a dub, dub in the tub, on the bed, condom on, wham bam thank you mamma and then it`s all over. No spills, no thrills and completely mechanical. If I ever go again, it would not surprise me to see a conveyor belt in there, with the customers being rolled on and off. BTW, there is no kissing allowed or any of that stuff, so no need to bother with the mouth wash.

    But as I say; these are desperation places and for the better experience, it`s probably worth saving your soapy experiences for when you are in Bangkok.

    • Chris September 16, 2012 at 12:38 am #

      Great report mate thanks but I wonder If your an old hand and speak Thai and you don’t care for a massage why don’t you go to the 99 brothel in santitum?

  5. John Harris October 14, 2012 at 4:10 pm #

    I went to Sayuri today at 6 PM. The girls were ugly, and the prices were 2000 baht and 2500 baht. I told them I will pay 1500 Baht, the papasan disagreed and i tried “walking away” to expect a call back – it didn’t happen and I really did walk away.

    Chris, you said you know how to get milky chiang mai babe for 1100 Baht, do you mind sharing with us?

    John

    • Chris October 15, 2012 at 10:36 am #

      You want a milky white girl for 1200 go to 1 of three places, the underground brothel, the glass window brothel or the 99 brothel in santitum all 1200 baht! But you’ll need to be a VIP member to get the locations. Sayuri sux now and 2000 baht what a joke, best soapy is the ping payom but the girls in the underground brothel are way better!!!!!!!! I prefer teh 99 brothel but if you don’t speak Thai you wont’ get service.

  6. Jay-is-live November 17, 2012 at 4:23 am #

    I tried out Celeb on Friday afternoon. Got there about 2:45pm, girls were just putting on there make up. 2 Thai uncles got there just before me, and took two of the best ones.
    I chose what I thought was the hottest girl left. 1650baht..
    Then once we got to the room, and I saw her naked, I was in heaven, she was damn hot. Amazing skin.
    She spoke no English, and my limited Thai meant for limited conversation, but it was still a great experience, she was ultra friendly, and keen to please.

    It took about 40mins to fill the bath tub though, and by that time we had already done everything.. So the bathtub was really just to wash up afterwards.

    I may return today.

      How do i get to celeb

      • Chris December 20, 2012 at 9:20 am #

        Directions are in the VIP area

  7. polo August 31, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    Went to Ping Payom today. Prices were way higher than quoted here. I asked for the Thai price. ”Same same”. Yeah, sure.
    Prices were 2500, 2200, 1800. There was only one girl for 1800, other than that there was quite a few girls there. They all look a bit cold though, and some have so much make-up, they look like dead. Was watching this one girl, trying to decide if she was real or not, then she suddenly blinked.
    Anyway, I tried to get the price down, they offered one girl from the 2200 section for 1800. She was not the one I had in mind, but I though I might as well get it over with, so went for her. I paid 2000, waited for my change, the guy tried to usher me away from the cashier, said ‘200 baht discount’. I told him he had agreed for 1800, but he said no and I walked of.
    Pity some places seem to be more intend on ripping you of than on providing good service and making sure you want to go back, or spread the word about how good they are.
    Not sure how the girls are, but if they have the same way of thinking, it’s probably better not to bother to go there. They won’t see me again, that’s for sure.

    Wanted to say thanks for all the info you provided here. Wished I stumbled upon this site 4 days ago. Tonight is my last night and I havent done any clubs/bars/soapies yet and I’m on a mission to do so tonight before I head out to Patong. I did venture out today around 2pm to Suyari and the quality was lacking, got out of there quick. Head over to Pandora and the girls are barely just getting there. Couldnt wait around as I was on a time schedule for the evening with my travel friends. Tried to go to Celeb but my tuk tuk driver didnt know where it was and I didnt have an address. Tried to look up Celeb online for an address but nothing is showing up(thats how I found your site) and you mention the address is innthe vip section. I tried to register but apparently its closed for the time being. Will search for Celeb after dinner with travel friends, wish me luck!

    I went to Sayrui Complex for the first time today and they say first impressions count. Girls 1100, 1300, 1500 and 2000 thai bht, I chose #14 who was 1100bht and was 22yrs and very cute however she turned out to be a total missery, she didn’t like her boobs being sucked, she wouldn’t let me lick her jack n danny, she wouldn’t kiss and she wouldn’t suck me without a wetsuit and the soapy part of the ‘soapy massage’ is only available if you pay 2000bht and so after a shower and a shagg the whole thing was over in less than 40 minutes – very frustrating!

    • Chris July 22, 2014 at 1:42 pm #

      Thanks for the report!

  11. David July 26, 2014 at 1:34 pm #

    Celeb@CNX
    Continuing my report on Soapy Chiang Mai. As I’ve already said first impressions count, the girls in Celeb@CNX are more than acceptable, two prices 1400 and 1600 and here you get 90 minutes, my girl was extremely friendly and the experience started with a 30 minute oil massage while the jacuzzi style bath was filling with water then into the bath and then back to the bed to finish off the 90 minutes with horizontal excitement – very good value for money

    • Chris July 26, 2014 at 3:49 pm #

      Thanks again, this place is also the recommended place to go, good value, thanks for the report.

    Hi. Thanks for your guide, I have visited both celeb and sayuri soapy massage during my week long stay in Chiang mai. In celeb the price was accurate, friendly papasan who explained girls and prices. Recommended friendly English speaking girlbwho would give good massage. In room was a quick oil rub down very quick bath and then about 30mins on bed where I finished only as she was bored whole time and had bad breath.. She begged for tip at the end. Dissapointed

    In Sayuri I went at 7pm. Good selection of girls. Despite speaking in basic Thai for prices I got quoted 2500 for basic level up to 3000 more expensive. Was not happy but in rush so went for girl who smiled through fishbowl and ended up paying 2000, too much I know! I had heard sayuri actually gave soapy massage so was looking forward to this as I have had nuru in the past which was incredible. The bath was tiny and I was in it for all of 2 mins. Again girl bored and just lay on bed after bath and I did all work. 30-40 mins later she was complaining of hurting so finished

    All in all I would like to experience a full soapy body to body massage. Does anyone have any idea where I am going wrong? Or am I expecting too much?

    Advice appreciated quickly only a few days vacation left

    Thanks

    Good info on this site thanks!

    Been in Chiang mai for a few days and wanted to experience soapy massage. First off went to celeb @cnx. Nice papasan very polite and correct prices. Recommended girl who speak good English andbgood fun. Nice girl 27 but had kid obviously. Anyway had bath and she was looking bored and whole time her breath really stank of some Thai food or another.after 10min bath wentbto bed, no bj \’mouth hurts\’. Looked bored and finished in 30mins as I was bored by her just lying there. She begged for tip after which was pathetic anf never going to happen after her performance! Left and disspointed 1200baht down.

    Wanted to try somehere else. Went to sayuri which ibheard had actual body to body massage as I wanted from soapy. At 7pm was busy. I was only farang but asked price in basic Thai and got quoted 2000 upwards, too high! Anyway was in rush and had to get back so chose nice 23 yr old light skinned girl. She was good fun to talk to but gave bad wash in tiny bathvfor 2mins and then proceeded to lie on bed andblet me do work. No hint of a massage! Was a good room in sayuri had we\’ll positioned mirrors but again girl was bored and floppy and wrapped up asap. Felt like I was ripped off start to finish.
    Anyway I have a few days left in cm and would appreciate some advice about wherebi am going wrong and how I can get a full soapy experience including body to body massage which I was keen to try!
    Thanks
