Guest Friendly Pattaya Hotels Discounts August 31, 2012

If you've been waiting for hotels deals in Pattaya because you knew the slow rainy season is coming up then your patience will be rewarded.

All of the bar girl friendly hotels I recommend below are in the prime location of central Pattaya. So you'll be close to a lot of go go bars, shopping centers like Central Festival Mall and plenty of places to eat, drink and cavort with Thai bar girls and freelancers.

Discounts for Recommended Hotels in Pattaya

The 3 star LK Metropole Hotel is located right by Soi Diana and is one of the nicest budget hotels in central Pattaya. And there are a handful of go go bars that are just a few minutes walk away. There is a special deal valid until September 30, 2012 where you book a minimum of 3 nights you'll get 45% off. Which comes out to about 1600THB ($53USD) per night for a 36 square meter standard room with a balcony. And the rate includes breakfast. Check rates for LK Metropole Hotel.

Just a little down on Soi Diana is the always popular Areca Lodge Hotel with a free night special as long as you book 7 days stay. So each paid night you're only paying about 1400THB ($45USD) per night with taxes. And yes, the rate also includes a free breakfast buffet. This deal for Areca Lodge is also only good until September 30th, 2012. Check rates for Areca Lodge Hotel.

Another guest friendly hotel with free nights specials is in central Pattya called the Citin Loft Pattaya. Book 3 nights and you get one for free. There is a slight catch however. This deal is only for a superior twin room and there is a breakfast included but it's only for the paid nights.Which is still a sweet deal because each paid night comes out to 900THB ($29USD) only! This offer is only valid until October 14th, 2012 so be sure to book in advance as these deals go quick. Check rates for Citin Loft Pattaya.

Final hotel with free nights on offer is the Eastiny Residence Hotel on the prime location of Beach Road. Book 7 nights and you get to stay for free for 1 night.

Check rates for Eastiny Residence Hotel.

These are all very popular 3 star Pattaya guest friendly hotels. As a reminder these deals are limited so I would take advantage of the specials as soon as possible.

Novotel Bangkok Ploenchit Sukhumvit Hotel Review

The Novotel Ploenchit Sukhumvit Hotel is another 4 star guest friendly hotel on Sukhumvit I recommend. The hotel is closer to Nana red light district, however the Ploen Chit BTS station is right outside the hotel so you're only two very short train stops away from Soi Cowboy's go go bars.

It's a new hotel too and I believe it opened its doors for business sometime late last year. Though back then it was named Novotel Bangkok Fenix. Not quite sure why the shortened name change but all that matter is they don't care if you invite a bar girl back to your room as long as you book a room for 2.

There are many Novotel hotels throughout Bangkok but the Novotel Ploenchit is the closest bar girl friendly hotel in Nana red light district (you can check out a email confirmation below).

I recently had a chance to check out this Novotel branch because I found a 50% off discount special for a superior room. So I paid about 2850THB for the night with all taxes included. It's a deal too good to pass up.

Superior room at Novotel Ploenchit Sukhumvit

Superior rooms are 28 square meters and you can expect all the modern conveniences since it's a new hotel such as in room safe and integrated room lighting and appliance control. The only real downer is they charge for internet access. The cost is 428THB per day. Not quite sure why such a odd number but either ways in Bangkok that's a ridiculous price.Though they do have free 24 hour computer terminals in the lobby.

And of course as a 4 star property the Novotel Ploenchit has a well equipped gym and a decent swimming pool plus sauna.

Overall it's a good hotel. And if you want to be in a quiet location but still be able to walk and hunt for prostitutes on Sukhumvit road then this Novotel is a good choice. Sukhumvit Soi 4 is just a short 5 minute walk so you can pay a visit to Nana Entertainment Plaza. And it doesn't hurt that there's a BTS station right out in front so you can travel to most of the popular shopping centers to check out beautiful Thai girls on a shopping spree.

Here's an email from Novotel Ploenchit regarding their policy on unregistered visitors:
Dear Sir,

Greeting from Novotel Bangkok Fenix Ploenchit.

We are pleased to inform that our hotel allow to accommodate maximum 2 persons in the room. For the invited guest can be accommodate over night without extra charge.

In case of the extra person (3rd guest), THB 1,000.00+17.7% tax and service charge will be applied.

Best regards,

Chawin U. (Mr.)
Reservation Supervisor
Novotel Bangkok Fenix Ploenchit
566 Ploenchit Road, Lumpini,
Patumwan, Bangkok 10330
So if you choose to stay there make sure to book a room for 2 guests. Besides it doesn't cost extra especially when you book through Agoda.com.

Legacy Express Bangkok Review

Here's another cool funky hotel right on Sukhumvit Soi 1 called the Legacy Express Bangkok that's been getting a lot of good reviews.

And being so close to Suk. Soi 1 means that the area is quieter but not too far from all the excitement. Nana Entertainment Plaza is right on Sukhumvit Soi 4 which is only a few minutes away. Soi Cowboy is approximately a 15 minute walk.

The Legacy Express opened its doors a few years ago. So it's still a brand new guest friendly hotel in Nana red light district. Taxi drivers shouldn't have a problem at all finding the hotel since the location is easy to reach. Plus the hotel is right between two BTS stations on Sukhumvit road called Ploen Chit station and Nana station.

So the hotel's location is great especially for single guys out on a night in Bangkok. Scores of Thai freelancers can be found on Sukhumvit Soi 4. Just north of Soi 4 is where Russian prostitutes are located. Right through to Soi 7 are the African contingent of hookers in the Arab quarters. And of course visiting Nana Plaza Entertainment's go go bars and beer bars is as easy as a short walk to the corner of Soi 4.

The Legacy is considered a 3 star hotel. Which is just right in terms of quality. But there's no pool or gym however. Though Annie's soapy massage is right on Sukhumvit Soi 2 if you want to play in water and some would consider a night of romping with a bar girl a workout.

Their most affordable rooms are the superior room types which are about 27 square meters big. And the rooms comes with modern touches including an in room safe and free Internet Wi-Fi access.

Superior room at Legacy Express Bangok
As of writing there is an early bird promotional rate provided by Agoda.com for around 1500THB including taxes. The price is just about right for a budget hotel in Nana. But since it's a new hotel it's totally worth it.

And the Legacy Express Hotel is guest friendly. Here's an email confirmation for your reference:
Dear Jim Hunt,
In regard to your query, you can bring your joiner fee to stay overnight without any charge.

Should you require more information please do not hesitate to contact us and looking forward to welcome and serve you soon

Best Regards
Ben Arayakul Mr.
Central Reservation Officer

Bangkok Soapy Massage Service Guide

Fishbowl girls, Sideliners and Models - What's the Difference?

From what I've been seeing on the stats from my blog post and the amount of emails I've been receiving it seems that the subject of soapy body to body massage parlors in Bangkok is quite the popular one.

So I've gathered up a bunch of questions from recent emails and decided I'd come up with some sort of guide on services provided by soapy parlors in Bangkok. I've already listed my 5 favorite soapy massage establishments on a previous post so you can check it out here.

In this post, I'm going to delve into the subject of Thai:
  • Fishbowl girls
  • Sideline girls
  • Model girls
From the emails I have been receiving, a lot of guys still don't know what the differences are. Those are the 3 categories of ladies you can choose at a soapy massage parlor. Though many establishments might have these weird categories like S or L and other type of nonsense.

In a nutshell fishbowl girls are cheaper but provide more service. While models as the name implies means they are more attractive and thus cost more. Sideline girls are in the mid-range price and are typically younger and also more attractive too..

Below you'll find out more info including what type of services are provided by each category as well as a rough estimate of rates charged for their time and service.
Fishbowl Girls
Fishbowl Girls

The first soapy massage I ever visited in Bangkok during my first trip ever is to Caesar's Massage in Huay Kwang. I was nervous the first time I stepped inside because I had no clue what to expect. And when I finally saw the fishbowl girls sitting inside behind a wall of glass I knew I had made the right decision in coming to Bangkok.  They were gorgeous and the ladies had curves in all the right places.

I picked the first hot looking fishbowl girl I laid my eyes on and asked how much to the papasan. I was told 2000THB for 90 minutes plus he mentioned she gives good blow job and service. That pretty much sealed the deal and I didn't care if the price was double or even if he was lying (which he wasn't). It was my first soapy massage experience in Bangkok and I thought I had died and gone to heaven.

It's been 12 years and I can't remember the face of the girl I chose but I do remember the incredible service I had received. She gave me 3 shots.

First was in the tub where she gave me a BJ after the pre-requisite wash down. Second shot was right after the massage and it was a real massage, not like someone marinating a piece of pork. After a little break and nap she was at it again onto full sex. It was awesome. With about 20 minutes to spare she gave me a pedicure too. Hell at that point I thought she was going to cook me a meal too.

From then on I thought that was the usual service provided at all soapy parlors. Boy was I wrong. But still, services provided by the ladies back then were way better than they are today

Through the course of the years, I've noticed a gradual decline in service and quality of girls at most of the soapies in Bangkok. To me it seemed like 2008 and forward was the beginning where service was much more mechanical to down right shitty.

So I'm happy that I had a good chance to experience top service before everything went downhill. Funny thing is whenever I tell people about my first soapy experience they think I'm crazy.

Today most of the better looking massage girls have migrated over to the sideline section. And who can blame them. They do less work but get paid more.

Sideline Girls are Prettier but Cost More
Sideliner Girls

Sideliners are a category of soapy girls and they do not sit inside the fishbowl. You'll see them sitting on sofas and lounge chairs off to the side (hence sideliners) away from the fishbowl section.

When I first started visiting soapies all those years ago there were not a lot of girls working on the side line.

So what is the difference between a fishbowl and sideliner? Sideline girls are usually and mostly younger and more attractive. Service wise, they do not provide massage. Though there are times where I've gotten a massage from a sideliner.  Just ask the papasan or mamasan and they'll tell you which girl does. Or they'll instruct the girl to provide one.

But a vast majority of sideline girls do not provide a massage. With them, it's only a wash in the tub followed by a body to body rub down then on to the bed for sex.

And for that, sideliners cost more than a fishbowl girl simply because they are easy on the eyes. To this date a majority of soapies in central Bangkok like you'd find in Huay Kwang, there are not a lot of young working fishbowl massage girls.

For example at Nataree, my favorite soapy in Bangkok, a fishbowl girl cost around 1800THB to 2000THB. Sideliners at Nataree cost a minimum of 2300THB. Which is why a lot of younger Thai prostitutes of legal age prefers being a sideliner. They get paid more for doing less work.

Models at Soapy Massage Parlors

The final category in the soapy massage world are the Models. And it goes without saying the most expensive girls you can find at a soapy.

Most establishments don't even have them. The ones that do are usually the higher end places, like Utopia and Poesideon.

Girls in the model category are supposedly former Thai Penthouse magazine pin ups, TV stars or other types of female entertainers who've popularity has dimmed though the years.

Which is why most ladies in the model category prefer working in parlors where customers with money tend to frequent.

Models are lighter skinned and taller than the average Thai female, which is what the local Thai men like.

You won't find recent Penthouse pet models working in the massage parlors however. That said, models are still very popular. Quite often you have to make an appointment through a papasan or mamasan who will show you a binder filled with Penthouse magazine covers of models they employ. Sometimes you have to wait a few days or even up to a week if the particular model you want is busy.

I've tried a few model girls at Utopia a few years ago. And sure the girls were hot with smoking bodies. But I had to shell out 8500THB for 45 minutes only. Another model I tried out cost 7500THB for the full hour. Not sure how they come up with their price point but I just wanted to give a try. Plus Utopia makes you pay a surcharge. I forgot how much it was back then because I wasn't going to let anything dampen my mood at the time.

So you pay more and you get less time. Did I enjoy it? During the time with the ladies, yes, it was worth it. But after you leave you can't help but say to yourself, "Did I actually spend that much money for pussy??" So yeah, I did have a bit of buyer's remorse. But at least I can tell people I've tried it.

One thing I should mention is because you're a foreigner some establishments might trick you by getting a girl that looks similar to the Penthouse model you've booked. According to some of my friends this has happened. Since I don't have a whole lot of experience with Thai models in soapies I can't say it's happened to me. So I hope you would understand why I won't be outing any establishments. I'm just giving everyone a heads up. 

With that in mind, the best places to visit to find Thai models in soapies is Utopia, Poseidon, New Cleopatra and Amsterdam. And models do not provide massage services. Like sideliners it's only a bath with you and straight on to sex.

Out of the three types of massage girls I prefer girls working on the sideline. I was spoiled all those years ago from the true soapy massage experience. The last fishbowl girl I've been with was back in 2008. But of course I'll give it a go with one again if I like her. But so far sideline ladies to me are the most attractive.

August 24th, 2012 Bangkok Hotel Deals this Weekend

For this weekend there are a handful of recommended guest friendly hotels near Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. And all of the discounts are provided through Agoda.com. These specials are limited so make sure to book in advance.

Ramada Encore
Ramada Encore Bangkok Hotel has a 53% off but you have to book 30 days before arrival. It's right on Sukhumvit Soi 10 and about 300 meters down.

Right now a standard room cost around 1800THB after the discount with taxes included. I wrote a more extensive review here because I highly recommend this hotel.

Woraburi Sukhumvit
Next up is the Woraburi Sukhumvit Hotel located down on Sukhumvit Soi 4, the same Soi as Nana Entertainment Plaza. So you can walk to NEP in about 5 minutes or make use of their free tuk tuk service.

The budget friendly Woraburi has up to 54% off as long as you book a 3 night minimum stay. Guest rooms are much improved today after a recent renovation. With the discounts a standard room cost around 1200THB with taxes. And that's a bargain.

S15 Sukhumvit
Back down closer to Soi Cowboy is another highly recommended guest friendly hotel on Sukhumvit road called the S15 Sukhumvit Hotel. Right now there's also a 35% off deal but you have to book 18 days before arrival.

So for a deluxe room at S15 cost about 2300THB with taxes and breakfast included. It's in a super convenient location close to Terminal 21 shopping center, the train stations and Thermae bar for picking up Thai freelancers.

Salil Hotel 8
And right in between Nana and Soi Cowboy is a cozy bar girl friendly hotel called Salil Hotel Sukhumvit Soi 8. Right now there is also a 50% off discount as long as you book 14 days before arrival. With the discount a standard room comes out to about 1750THB per night with taxes.

It's in a quiet location off Soi 8 about 250 meters down but I know a lot of people prefer that. Though there are a couple of popular places to drink and eat near the hotel. If you choose to stay at the Salil be sure to check out Det 5 bar on Fridays at 7pm for a free dinner buffet.

Top 5 Star Sukhumvit Bar Girl Friendly Bangkok Hotels

Just as there are a lot of budget hotels in Sukhumvit road close to Nana and Soi Cowboy red light districts there are also quite a handful of 5 star guest friendly hotels too.

And the prices for a luxury hotel room in Bangkok is surprisingly very affordable with reasonable rates.

For example the Grand Centre Point Sukhumvit by Terminal 21 Mall is one of the newest posh hotel in a prime location. A superior room cost about 3400THB (with discounts through Agoda) per night. That's only about $107USD.

Compared to the USA, Europe and most cosmopolitan cities in Asia $100USD for a 5 star hotel is an absolute bargain.

And even then many internationally run guest friendly luxury hotels on Sukhumvit road range from 6000THB ($200USD) to $350(USD) per night with taxes.

So I think Thailand is a great place to splurge just a little bit for a taste of luxury.

One thing I have to mention is you might get a bit of odd looks from Hi society Thais and foreigners if you walk into a 5 star property with a bar girl in hand.

Yes, those eyes are judging you but you know what. If you're on vacation you might as well relax and enjoy yourself. They may look but that's all they'll do. And besides, you won't be the only one bringing a Thai hooker back to your room. I've seen lots of foreign tourists do the same so no need to feel like your're taking the walk of shame.

Chances are guys with their wives are probably giving you a thumbs up behind their wives backs.

Sofitel Sukhumvit Hotel
#1 Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit
Average room rate: 4500THB per night
Address: 189 Sukhumvit Road Soi 13-15
Internet access: Free

This Sofitel Hotel on Sukhumvit road is brand new modern property that opened early this year. I've always mentioned that newer hotels in Bangkok always have some kind of promotional discount rates to attract guests. As of writing you can enjoy a room at Sofitel for about 4500THB.

There are many Thai freelancers standing around the area surrounding the hotel particularly inside and outside the Thermae Bar. And of course you have choice pick of either visiting Soi Cowboy or Nana go go bars easily since the hotel is almost right in the middle and in easy walking distance to both red light districts centers.

Read reviews and find current discount rates for Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit.

Westin Grande Sukhumvit
#2 Westin Grande Sukhumvit
Average room rate: 5500THB per night
Address: 259 Sukhumvit Soi 19
Internet access: Free Wi-Fi only in public areas

The Westin Grande Sukhumvit is one of the most well known 5 star hotel in Bangkok. It's in a prime location and everyone knows where it's at. As a well known international hotel chain you can assume you'll be staying  in a  superior quality hotel room and receive professional service and attention.

You'll find Thai hookers right on the sidewalk of the hotel. Though they're not the best looking girls. Like the Sofitel, the Westin is closer to Soi Cowboy but Nana is only a 10 minute walk away.

Read reviews and find current discount rates for Westin Grande Sukhumvit.

Grand Millennium Sukhumvit
#3 Grand Millennium Sukhumvit
Average room rate: 3700THB per night
Address: Sukhumvit 21
Internet access: Charges apply

You know you're staying at a 5 star hotel when there's a big golf putting green in it. The Grand Millennium Sukhumvit is one of the highest hotel building. And it's just a short stroll to Soi Cowboy, less than a 5 minute walk.

Their deluxe rooms are huge at 38 square meters. If you enjoy a long soak in the bathtub you'll find one in the deluxe room. Who needs to go to a soapy massage parlor when you can take a bar girl back to your hotel room for some fun.

Read reviews and find current discount rates for Grand Millennium Sukhumvit.

Grand Centre Point Sukhumit hotel
#4 Grand Centre Point Sukhumvit - Terminal 21
Average room rate: 3600THB per night
Address: Sukhumvit Soi 19
Internet access: Free

I've been raving about this hotel since it first opened up for business early this year. So why is it not #1? For one thing Grand Centre Point has great high quality rooms.

And the hotel has top notch swimming and gym facilities plus a lot of extras. But it doesn't have over the top service like you would see in the top 3 on this list. Besides I don't like being pampered.

Don't get me wrong, the hotel staffs are awesome. It's just that I don't need someone to wipe my ass. But trust me. This is one awesome 5 star guest friendly Bangkok hotel. Be sure to check out Terminal 21 Mall. Lots of cute girls shopping inside. Plus many places to eat at really affordable prices.

Read reviews and find current discount rates for Grand Centre Point Sukhumvit.

Phachara Suites Bangkok
#5 Phachara Suites Sukhumvit
Average room rate: 2700THB per night
Address: 22 Sukhumvit Soi 6
Internet access: Free

So Phachara Suites is not exactly a 5 star hotel. It's more like a 4 star hotel but I don't care because it's really one of the most affordable high quality hotels near Nana Entertainment Plaza. And you won't have a hard time finding hookers along Sukhumvit Soi 4.

And get this, a studio room at Phachara is 45 square meters. And they also have a very nice pool area and fitness center also. Highly recommended too!

Read reviews and find current discount rates for Phachara Suites Bangkok.

I really recommend staying at any of these 5 star hotels on Sukhumvit road. You should really treat yourself just for a night or two. Here's what I suggest: for example if you're staying in Bangkok for one week only you can book a budget guest friendly hotel for 3 days. I wrote a post on cheap Sukhumvit hotels under 1500THB. And for the remaining days stay at a 5 star hotel to round out a most excellent holiday in Bangkok's red light districts.

Bangkok Alaina Entertainment Massage

Alaina Entertainment Massage hasn't yet made it to my Top 5 Soapy Massage Parlor list. But it's getting close. It's one of the newer body to body massage parlors on Ratchada that opened up early 2012.

It's a big pink building (so you can't miss it) that is a 5 minute walk up from Robinson's Department Store on Ratchada. And the closest MRT subway train station is called Thailand Cultural Center. Take exit #4 walk straight up right past Robinson's you'll find Alaina Massage on the corner of Ratchada Soi 7.

The reason why I'm beginning to like Alaina's is because it's the same owner as Nataree. And Nataree has a good track record of drawing in attractive sideliners. To me, the fishbowl girls at Alaina are not so attractive which is always how I felt about Nataree's fishbowl lineup too.

Anyways in the beginning when Alaina opened up they were shuffling Nataree's top earners to fill their own ranks. Which was one of the reasons why I never mentioned Alaina Massage earlier. Because most of my favorite sideline girls were working there. I know, I'm a selfish bastard. But better late than never right? Just kidding.

Alaina had a really rough start. And the ladies shipped over there from Nataree were not happy because they weren't making as much money because not too many people knew about the new location.

Now, (well at least as of writing) business is picking up. And I wouldn't be surprised if they do as well as Nataree someday. Because Alaina Massage is so easy to get to and like its sister massage parlor have a good track record of attracting beautiful sideline girls.

Alaina's sideline girls cost about 2300THB, 2600THB and some 2800THB. No falang surcharge. Just like Nataree, the Papasans speak passable English. And every time you ask them for the price of a massage girl it seems like they're throwing out random prices but they actually have a system. And rooms at Alaina are in way better condition.

If you've been visiting Colonze 2 for awhile you might be saying "That ugly pink building has been there for ages". What happened was Alaina's owners didn't get the license to operate because the local police claimed they were too close to a school. And they found this out after the construction of the building was finished. A big lawsuit ensued and afterwards I have no clue what happened next except the building has been left vacant for years.

So somewhere along the line an agreement was made and like instant ramen noodles Alaina Entertainment Massage was rushed open for business. I even remember sitting in a tub with my massage girl in one of the rooms inside and I heard people moving furniture.

They still have a shaky start though so weekdays is perhaps not the best time to visit. During weekends I see about 15 to 25 sideline girls, many of them new faces. They have about 5 to 8 fishbowl girls for those who are interested. Since it's not so far away from other massage parlors it's definitely worth a visit if you don't find a soapy massage along Ratchada with the right girl you're looking for.

Jasmine Executive Suites Hotel Bangkok

The Jasmine Executive Suites is another 4 star property just a short walk to Soi Cowboy. And yes it is a guest friendly hotel so bar girls and ladyboys are allowed to visit you at your room with no hassles to pay a joiner fee.

It's a big hotel with 208 rooms and stands right at the entrance of Sukhumvit Soi 23. And the hotel was renovated just this year to keep up with the other popular competing 4 star hotels nearby on Sukhumvit road.

Officially Jasmine Suites is an apartment type property catering to long term guests. Which is why their rooms are equipped with full kitchenettes like an apartment. But tourists on a short stay in Bangkok are just as welcomed of course.

And the prices for their rooms are not bad either. Right now you can get a 30% off discount through Agoda.com. They have an offer for a superior room at Jasmine that runs about 2200THB per night (taxes included). And for that price you get a 34 square meter room with all the modern fixings you'd expect from a recently renovated hotel. There's a swimming pool and workout room too for guests use.

The Jasmine Executive is in a great location with BTS (Asok Station) and MRT (Sukhumvit  Station) entrances nearby along with a giant super mall called Terminal 21. But of course the Jasmine's biggest attraction are the go go bars of Soi Cowboy. Plus there are a handful of oil and traditional Thai massage parlors to visit up on Sukhumvit Soi 23. And Darlings Soapy Massage parlors is right around on Sukhumvit Soi 12 less than a 5 minute walk. Nana Plaza is about a 15 minute walk down Sukhumvit road so the Jasmine is an ideal hotel to stay while visiting Bangkok's red light districts.

Here's a guest friendly policy reply from the Jasmine's reservation department:
Dear Mr. Hunt,
Thank you for your interested in our hotel. We would like to inform you that, we don't charge for joiner.
Best Regards
Jasmine Executive Suites

Tips on Visiting Angel Massage in Bangkok

Angel Massage is another one of my favorite full service massage parlors I love to visit and recommend. They have a wide variety of girls to choose from. Though they claim on their website that they have 70 ladies available on weekends it is a bit hard to believe. I think their number of massage girls is closer to about 40. Which is still a lot of ladies to pick.

And they do have some cute girls working there. No stunners but the Angel girls I like are about a 6 on the scale of a 1 (Butt Ugly) to 10 (Hot!).

Their massage service menu is simple, Thai, Oil and Lotion massage. And I like it that way. No aromatherapy, no over-priced latest seaweed paste and special Korean cream massage are offered. I usually shoot for the 2 hour oil massage which cost 800THB.

At Angel Massage full fuck service cost 1500THB. And if they've never seen you before and unfamiliar with you, you might have to pay everything up front to the cashier. Years ago everyone would pay the 1500THB to the girl directly and whatever massage service type you chose gets paid to the cashier at the end too.

Don't make it a big deal if they make you pay upfront, there's a good reason for it. I was curious to why a change in the protocol. I asked a few of the massage girls why the change and it was because there was a frequent pattern of really cheap assholes who chose the 300THB for a Thai massage course, grope the girls during the massage and not pay for any type of extras afterwards. And it's the extras that the customers pay to the girls that counts since they only make a little money from the actual massage service.

Angel Massage Shop on Sukhumvit Soi 24/1
If you want a room with a mirror it'll cost another 200THB (skip it). The massage rooms are in bad condition which is quite the norm in most similar oil massage establishments. So don't get freaked out if you get a dingy room. Just think happy thoughts.

Here are the names of my favorite girls working in Angel Massage and you can see there pics on their website.
  1. Tuna
  2. Kristen
  3. Nick
  4. Candy
All of those girls are fun and provide great service. Tuna is a cute girl with fake big tits and I'd put her close to a 7 on the scale for looks. If you like a girl with light skin then she's the girl to go with.

Kristen is close to a 7 too and she has a nice body. Nick and Candy are cute too with good attitudes. I usually end up tipping those girls 300THB because they're fun to be with.

I've picked a lot of girls from Angel but the ladies above are tops in my book. I have to mention that the pictures of the girls you see on their website look a lot better then the actual person. So when you go there I recommend asking if you can see the girls that are available. Don't bother looking at the photo album, all of those pictures are touched up. It's okay to ask to see the massage ladies and the room where the ladies are waiting are opposite from the reception desk behind a plastic curtain.

I do highly recommend taking a look at the ladies because there were many times where I had buyer's remorse. 

Like 99.9% of all oil massage parlors with full sex services the ladies at Angel can not provide a good massage even if their lives depends on it so if you're looking for that your better off going to a legitimate massage shop.

It's an easy shop to find located on Sukhumvit Soi 24/1. If you're going there by Sky Train, take it to Phrom Phong Station and head for Exit #4 stairway. There are quite a few oil massage parlor shops down Soi 24/1 and I'll make a post on those soon.  Angel Massage is all the way at the end and you can't miss it. And I don't know if I'm paranoid or not but every time I walk down Soi 24/1 I always feel like the locals are staring at me. And it's obvious they know where I'm going but sometime I get the feeling like I'm taking the walk of shame and it really makes me laugh.

Angel is very busy during weekends so it's going to be a real hit or miss in terms of better looking girls that are available. Many times customers call up to reserve the girls ahead of time. And since they do provide out-call service with rates starting at 600THB for 2 hours you might be hard pressed for getting laid.

They are probably one of the most well advertised oil massage parlors in Bangkok too. Many Korean and Japanese tourists know about them through word of mouth and from advertising in popular Japanese naughty boy guides like G-Diary. Even on Angel's website there's a claim that Korean and Japanese rock stars and actors visit their shop. 

Weekday visits is better though the amount of girls is less. For me, the best time to visit Angel Massage is around 6pm on a Thursday night. On weekends I've had better success from 7pm. Don't bother going there before closing time because most of the girls will be off by then and will be a total waste of time.

S Sukhumvit Suites Hotel Bangkok Review

Many hotels near the go go bars of Soi Cowboy are guest friendly though if you need to stay at a place with affordable rates than look no further than S Sukhumvit Suites Hotel. And the 'S' stands for 'Super' as in 'Super close to Soi Cowboy'. Okay, I know, don't quit my day job because I'm a bad comedian.

Not sure what the 'S' really stands for but the hotel is just about 3 minutes walk to entrances of Asok road or Sukhumvit Soi 23 which is where Soi Cowboy begins and ends. So if you're too drunk after a long night at a go go bar your favorite bar girl shouldn't have any difficulty dragging your ass back to your room. And S Sukhumvit's policy allows guests to invite prostitutes back to their rooms with no problems at all as long as you keep it to one bar girl at time.

MRT station is on left side of CitiBank and S Sukuhumvit is on right side
S Sukhumvit is in a super prime location. Terminal 21 Mall is just right across Asok Road and connected by the Sky Train's walkway including the entrances to the Asok BTS station. And the Sukhumvit MRT station is just right around the hotel past CitiBank. Just a memo, Citibank doesn't charge any ATM withdrawal fees for foreign bank cards. Just to be safe, double check with your bank however since not all banks around the world operate the same.

It's a very easy hotel to find and a taxi driver would have to be brain dead if he can't find it because it's in a very busy and well known location. Or if you're coming from the Makkasan Airport Train Station you can easily connect to the hotel through the MRT subway train. From Makkasan station take a short walk to Petchburi MRT station (there are plenty of signs). Take the train to Sukhumvit station which is only one stop. Look for exit #2 and when you're out you'll see CitiBank and S Sukhumvit Hotel is just right around the other end of the corner.

As of writing there are special rates at S Sukhmvit Suites until October 2012 for a superior double room available for around 2000THB per night including taxes ($64 USD). Superior rooms are around 22 square meters which is perfect for single guys. And the hotel is built around 2009 so it's still considered a new hotel. And you'd get modern amenities such as free Internet Wi-Fi access, electronic safe and a room style that's contemporary. No pool or gym however. But overall, it's still a good hotel that's very close to Soi Cowboy for go go bars and a few massage parlors to visit out up on Soi 23.

This Week's Best Guest Friendly Hotels in Bangkok Deals

There are a lot of very good deals this week for hotels in Bangkok. But I've selected a handful to list here because I think these hotels are a really good value and in prime location.

Sacha's Hotel Uno
First is Sacha's Hotel Uno on Soi 19. It's just around the corner from Terminal 21 Shopping Mall and train stations. I've noticed the prices for Sacha's flucuates a lot and can go as high as 2400THB per night with taxes. Right now I see rates for a superior room going for around 1800THB per night with taxes.

You can check current rates for Sacha's Hotel Uno to see if the discount is still available as it's quite limited. And if the 1800THB deal is still available you should definitely take advantage of it.

Superior room - Grande Centre
Next up is the Grande Center Point Sukhumvit Hotel which is right inside the Terminal 21 Shopping Mall. It's a fantastic 5 star hotel with affordable rates. For this month their superior rooms go for about 4200THB per night including taxes and those rates are provided by Agoda.com. Normally their superior rooms cost double but Agoda has a 50% off deal.

Grande Centre Point Sukhumvit is a brand new hotel and has the best pool and gym facilities with a bunch of other amenities for guests.

Ambassador Hotel
And finally for those who love picking up Thai freelancers check out the Ambassador Hotel on Soi 11. Right in the basement is a popular after hours club called Club Climax. Lots of freelancers there charging 1000THB to 2500THB for short time. So the Ambassador is a convenient hotel to take prostitutes back to the room.

Right now there is a 30% off deal for a room at the standard wing that cost about 1600THB per night with taxes. But this deal is only valid until August 22, 2012 so make sure to reserve your room here.

All of the guest friendly hotels mentioned above are close to Soi Cowboy but you can easily walk to Nana Entertainment Plaza too.

One more hotel I have to mention with very good discounts is out in Pattaya called Sunshine Hotel & Residence which is about a 5 minute walk to a huge strip of go go bars on Walking Street. Right now there's a 60% discount for there standard rooms so the final price comes out to around 1200THB per night with taxes.

The rooms at Sunshine Hotel & Residence are so cheap right now because it's undergoing renovation. So if you can withstand the minor inconveniences it's still a good budget hotel choice in Pattaya.

Bargaining with Thai Prostitutes in Bangkok

Getting the best bang for your buck (pun intended) can be fun for some. For others, it's a necessity. Especially for budget travelers in Bangkok's red light districts seeking cheap sex with Thai girls and need to keep a tight grip on their dollars.

Then again I know a bunch of rich tight wads who are just as cheap if not worse. Yes, you all know who you are.

Regardless of your spending habits it is possible to negotiate a lower price with Thai bar girls inside go go bars or with hookers working the bars and street corners.

But if you're on a budget your only option is to stick with prostitutes in the clubs, beer bars or at any other similar establishment that doesn't require you to pay a bar fine.

Because go go bars require a bar fine which can blow a well laid out sex budget. And the prices for drinks can really add up. Bar fines and drink prices are non-negotiable.

Though there is a trade off. At go go bars you can check out the girls physical attributes because ladies inside are required to wear bikinis. In some go go bars you can check out topless girls, for example at Rainbows 4 in Nana Entertainment Plaza or at the 2nd floor of Shark Bar at Soi Cowboy. I know guys who exclusively visit go go bars only because they can check if there are stretch marks on a bar girl's stomach. Which is a tell tale sign that she's had a baby and is an instant deal breaker.

I can understand. The sight of post natal stretch marks can be a total turn off. To be fair I know there are ladies who have had babies and not have a single trace of stretch marks. That's fine for me because if it's out of sight it's out of my mind.

Thai street hookers with pimp??
With Thai freelance prostitutes there's no chance to check out the goods before you buy. And I know what I'm about to say will probably make a lot of guys who prefer street hookers uneasy.  But the reason why many Thai girls work the streets is not only because they have a family or boyfriend/pimp to support but because they have a baby or two to take care of.

Thermae Bar is my favorite pick up joint on Sukhumvit road Soi 15. I can't begin to tell you how many girls I've taken out from Thermae and surprised to find out that they have had babies. Obviously I haven't been with every single hooker inside that place but if I had to guess I would say that at least 70% of the ladies working there have had babies. And I do believe that a vast majority of Thai street workers are in similar situations.

Now if you get past that thought and still want to negotiate for cheaper sex with Thai prostitutes then street hookers are your best options. The usual minimum rate they charge is about 1000THB for short time. For long time you can expect to pay around 3000THB to 6000THB. And there are sneaky ways to get cheaper prices for sex with hookers in Bangkok.

Do not expect to get laid for less than 500THB in Bangkok with a good looking Thai prostitute. Attractive girls know what they're worth. So if you see hot looking freelancer at Q Bar or Spassos it's best to avoid them if you don't have at least 4000THB to 5000THB in your wallet.

Negotiating for cheaper rates for sex is expected on the streets of Bangkok and tolerated in go go bars but you really have to be realistic with your initial offer. If a Thai prostitute's initial asking rate is 2500THB for short time don't expect to counteract with 1000THB and think you'll get away with it. If you can charm them enough they'll probably knock off 500THB. Getting a 1000THB discount however unlikely is marginally possible if they are desperate.

"Lot noy dai mai krup?" "Mai dai ka"
Ladyboy prostitutes are notorious for asking more money from Asians, particularly from Japanese men. And that's because ladyboys know they have the cash. However, from what I've been told from my friends who enjoy their company they'll initially ask for a higher price tag for their time. But through a bit of polite negotiating they will take their prices down.

Don't Leave Your Hotel Room Without This... 

One of my biggest tips for negotiating a cheaper rate requires having a working GSM mobile phone with a Thai sim card and phone number. You can purchase one at a 7 Eleven. I believe a starter kit with sim card and 10 minutes still cost about 100THB.

Now if you see a girl you really like and all you want to spend is 1500THB but she wont' budge on her 2500THB short time asking price you can tell her to call your phone if she can't find a customer. It's not guaranteed to work of course but the more girls you try this with you'll increase your chances of finding one who will contact you to accept your offer. As mentioned earlier, Thai girls are often desperate for cash for a lot of reasons.

Learning to speak Thai really helps out a lot too. The attempt is endearing and if you can build a good rapport with her she might just agree to give you a discount.

Another invaluable tip to remember is to never pay up front to a Thai hooker if you're paying her for long time prices. No matter what excuse they give.

Finally, don't give the girls too hard of a time if they are firm on their rates. They put up with a lot of crap not only from guys like me (at least used to) and you but may have all types of pressures and stresses from personal issues.

Best Value 4 Star Hotel Near Nana Plaza - The Phachara Suites Bangkok

The Phachara Suites is right on Sukhumvit road Soi 6. It's located just around the corner from Nana Entertainment Plaza's go go bars and the hordes of freelancers outside of the Nana Hotel. Both are just a short 5 minute stroll from the Phachara which is a bar girl friendly hotel so they won't hassle you for a joiner fee if you choose to invite a lady to your room for short time or long time.

There are many reasons to like this hotel. But what I like most about Phachara is that they have really big rooms that are not expensive. For example their studio deluxe rooms are 46 square meters big. That's huge even for 2 guests. And the Phachara Suites was just renovated back in 2010 so all of the rooms feature modern amenities.

Right now there is an early bird special which includes a 30% off for the deluxe rooms and the price comes out to about 2400THB ($65USD) per night including taxes.

Normally the rate is easily about 3000THB or $100USD which is still worth it if you really think about it. I've paid about the same for a room at crappy old hotels in other countries in the West.

And the Phachara is a true 4 star property. There's a nice big swimming pool and a modern fitness center. And the room decor and quality is quite high.

Plus the hotel is staffed with very friendly and professional people who really go out of their way to make your stay the best that it can be. But it's not over the top stuffy service where you feel smothered.

There is another special promotional rate at Phachara for a studio executive room. Those rooms are 50 square meters big and cost around 2650THB which is not much more for than the cost of a deluxe room. And the current deal for an studio executive room also includes a huge buffet breakfast spread. I highly recommend booking a studio executive room because it's a fantastic room.

This is truly one of the best valued 4 star hotel right in the middle of Bangkok's 2 main red light districts, Nana and Soi Cowboy. The Phachara is close to many spots to pick up Thai freelancers and convenient for go go bar hopping inside Nana Entertainment Plaza. It's the perfect location.

Hotel Discounts in Pattaya and Bangkok For This Week

This week there's 2 guest friendly hotels in Bangkok and 1 in Pattaya I recommend that currently have discounts.

Grande Center Point Ratchadamri
First up is the Grande Centre Point Ratchadamri located in Chidlom section of central Bangkok. It's not in walking distance to Nana or Soi Cowboy but you can walk to the Chidlom BTS station and get to those places in 2 to 3 stops respectively. Or take a taxi and it should cost about 60THB.

The Grand Centre Point is a super classy property with awesome guests amenities featuring a huge swimming pool in a tropical setting and modern fitness center. And as always the staff there offer first class service.

Currently there are 2 types of discounts offered through Agoda. First a grande deluxe room has a 30% off and the price is around 3600THB plus taxes and breakfast. Second is the grande suite and there's a 50% off discount and the price is around 3800THB plus taxes and breakfast (minimum 2 nights stay). It's in a good location close to Central World Mall and Siam Paragon. Check current rates and read more reviews about Grande Center Point Ratchadamri.

Royal Ivory Nana Hotel
The next hotel I recommend that has discounts currently is a well known budget hotel in Sukhumvit called Royal Ivory Hotel. It's located in the middle of Sukhumvit Soi 4 and right where the go go bars of Nana Entertainment Plaza makes its home.

The Royal Ivory is just a short 5 minute walk to NEP past numerous beer bars and teeming with hookers when the sun comes down.

Even though it's an older hotel property the rooms are well taken care of and hotel staff are helpful and friendly. There's even a nice swimming pool for guests to enjoy.

Right now there's a 54% off deal for a deluxe king room and the price comes out to around 1300THB including taxes only. But you have to book 10 days before arrival in order to qualify for the discount. Check current prices and read more reviews of Royal Ivory Hotel.

Finally out in Pattaya the Sunshine Hotel & Residence located on popular Pattaya Beach Road is having an incredible 65% off discount. This deal applies to their standard rooms and standard rooms with balconies.

Both rooms cost the same price at about 1000THB, however, you should book the standard room with balcony because those rooms are 32 square meters which is 8 meters bigger than a room without a balcony.

So you're probably wondering what's with the huge discount? There's got to be a catch right?? Right now the hotel is going through some renovations. From what I've been told it's not that bad and sure you'll be hearing some knocking noises but it could be from your neighbor working on a bar girl. After all the hotel is right on Soi 8 with plenty of beer bars and a couple of go go bars. You can read current reviews on Sunshine Hotel & Residence to see if there are any major complaints as well as check rates.

Akane Fashion Massage Bangkok

A massage girl at Akane on Sukhumvit Soi 33
I took a long break from visiting oil massage parlors in Bangkok for awhile. So just recently I was excited to pay a visit to one of my favorite establishments called Akane Fashion Massage.

Akane has 2 locations. The first one is in Chidlom, right by the BTS Chidlom station. So it's very easy to get to. The second location is on Sukhumvit Soi 33 and the nearest station to that is BTS Phrom Phong but still requires a 10 minute walk thru Soi 33. Their website has detailed maps so it won't be difficult to find both oil massage parlors at all.

Both establishments are clean and very professional looking. All of the ladies dressed in red and black blazers with tight dresses. And you can easily see who is available after you've picked the type of service you want. And they do provide a lot of different massage services.

There are some differences between both massage shops in terms of service however. The Chidlom branch offers customers a body scrub option. And also most of the massage ladies working there provide rim jobs. Yes, they'll eat your arsehole. But of course they'll give your body a good thorough wash from your feet to your ass first of course. And they do put an emphasis on cleaning your butt hole first.

Akane Massage - Chidlom Branch
They have this little special plastic chair where a girl will seat you. It has a groove where she can have better access to play and clean your little buddy as well as your butt hole.

Once a massage girl asked if I wanted her to put a finger in my asshole. Her name is Mika and she provides great service by the way.

I've done a lot of freaky things in my life. But that's a place where I draw the line and wouldn't dare go. I asked her if there were any customers she stuck her fingers in their asses and she said yes. One customer even asked her to put 4 fingers in. Now I wished I hadn't asked.

Both branches do not provide full service. Only oral relief with a condom or hand jobs. However, without getting too graphic the ladies there do have other ways of satisfying a man without.

The Akane at Sukhumvit Soi 33 branch is much bigger with more ladies. If you take a look at Akane website you can find a gallery with pics of the ladies (currently no pics on their website).

In my opinion there are a few more better looking girls working at the Soi 33 shop then there are in Chidlom. And the massage girls on Soi 33 do not lick their customers asses, or at least I haven't come across any yet that does. The Akane on Sukhumvit Soi 33 does not offer full service either. But they do specialize in oral with a condom and prostate massage.

And there is an emphasis on no full sexual services. So before you enter your massage room all of your personal items especially your wallet goes into a locker on the ground floor and the key is handed to you. It's a way to protect your belongings from theft because you'll be leaving your clothes in the massage room while you go take a shower with your chosen girl.

You only pay for whatever services you chose on the menu at the end to a cashier. The basic price for a 60 minute lotion massage with hand job is 770THB at both shops. And of course more services are provided such as two massage girls with rates starting at 1900THB for 60 minutes that includes oral relief. And that's a bargain considering that the ladies there will give you as many shots as your body can handle.

I prefer going to Akane on Childom because of the body scrub. The ladies always provide great service. Whether you're prepared or not, while they are soaping your body they will ask if you want them to put a finger (or 2) in your ass. And that's the prostate massage). I always decline.

After the body scrub comes the oil massage followed by the grand finale which is either a hand job or blow job, depending upon which course you've chosen. Being an older guy today I can squeeze out 2 shots. Once I asked a massage girl how many times she had made a customer come in one session. She answered 5 times. I replied he must have been a young customer. She replied he was older than I. Ouch.

There are not a lot of attractive girls working at both Akane Massage parlors. But I've always had great service with their massage girls and felt that the money was well spent. There are a couple of times where I've been to other oil massage shops and come wondering what the heck did I just pay for. With Akane, I've never had any buyer's remorse at all.
