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.
Chiang Mai being a small city there are really only 4 soapy massage parlors to talk about:
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
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.
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 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.
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!
