Nantra Sukhumvit 39 Bangkok Hotel Review

The Nantra is a chain of growing budget hotels throughout Bangkok. A few of them are located strategically near the red light districts.

This particular Nantra hotel can be found on Sukhumvit soi 39, just a couple of minutes walk from the Emporium Mall and the Phrom Phong BTS Sky Train station stair entrance.

Phrom Phong is an area practically synonymous with oily massage parlors that line most of the odd numbered Sukhumvit sois starting from soi 31 and ending around on Soi 26 where Angel Massage is.

So the Nantra is right in the middle of all the greasy oily action so you have a choice of either just showing up at the shops or take advantage of the in-call service which all establishments provide for lazy guys who don't want to leave their rooms.

And since it is guest friendly you need not worry about getting smacked with a joiner fee when you bring back the bar girl of the night to your room.

Nantra's rooms are not expensive considering the neighborhood it is in. Sure there are loads of sex shops to mess around in but it's also sort of a ritzy residential area with high class hotels and condos scattered around.

And there are a few budget hotels in the Phrom Phong and this is certainly one of them. As of writing, Agoda is offering a 40% discount on their 20 square meter economy rooms. With taxes and simple breakfast this tiny little room is all yours for a measly 1000THB a night.

Want to live it up a little for 150THB more? There is also a 50% discount for the 23 square meter so with taxes and breakfast the total is round 1150THB.

But here's a fair warning. Even though the Nantra is only a few years old, signs of shoddy workmanship are becoming present. And you can sure bet that the hotel's profits are not going into hiring the best from Bangkok's work pool.

That said, I know the Nantra Suk 39 has a lot of simple qualities most single visitors to Bangkok's naughty nightlife needs. A clean bed, shower, air condition and a free breakfast treat in the morning. Plus free internet access so a guest can surf porn and spank their monkey when a bar girl is asking for too much money. 

For your reference, here is the hotel's guest friendly confirmation:
Dear Mr.jim,

We not charge but in room maximum 2 person.And please take care your things by your self or please inform to your joiner keep ID card to reception on arrival.

Thank you very much.

If you have any assistant please do not hesitate to contact directly me.

Best Regards,
Daranrat  La-ieddee (Modz)

Quick Guide to Hong Kong's Red Light Districts

Find hot girls in Hong Kong on sex141

Many people think that the Thailand has the most naughty massage parlors in Asia. And that's not true at all. China is king when it comes to getting a rub and tug. Though I'm not a particular fan of Guangzhou and Shenzen which both are major cities in China that are hot beds of prostitution ranging from hostess bars to hookers on the walk.

However, I love Hong Kong. A flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong only takes about 3 hours. So it's a great place to go for a short trip.

There's no Soi Cowboy, Nana and Patpong in Hong Kong but there are some places similar on Hong Kong Island in the Wan Chai district. But those bars are usually stocked with ladies from the Philippines where blow jobs and hand jobs are on the menu. Which is fine. I love women from the Philippines. But the prices for drinks and extras at the scam bars of Wan Chai make Patpong look like Chuck E. Cheese.

And there are legalized single room apartment brothels dispersed in certain neighborhoods, particularly in the Mong Kok and Jordan districts in the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. Actually massage dens in apartments make up the bulk of Hong Kong's sex industry, all the way up to the new territories bordering China.

I do enjoy Hong Kong's massage parlors. Particularly the choices of ladies. There are simply so many. Check out sex141.com and you'll know what I mean.

The upside on Hong Kong's naughty massage parlors is that you can easily find them. Addresses are in English and street numbers and signs are way lot more organized than the sois of Bangkok. So it's not so easy to get lost.

The downside is that most of the girls on 141's massage directory cannot speak English. This is especially true with the better looking girls that work out of hotel rooms such as the Kimberley Hotel in Kowloon. Girls that work out of there are typically straight from the People's Republic of China (PRC).

PRC girls are gorgeous and hot. When you call the phone number that corresponds to their photos it's usually a pimp that picks up and tells you where to go.

Hong Kong bornn girls who run their own "one woman brothels" might be able to understand English or at least communicate with customers better. But in my opinion, HK girls are a bit more 'mature' for my taste and thus reflects their price which typically starts at 250HKD. But of course you can find younger ones but they'll cost you too.

Prostitution in Hong Kong is legal. But there is a limit. Women can charge for sex as long as it is within the confines of their apartments or hotel rooms. Women can't actively prowl the streets in search of customers. Organized prostitution however is illegal but that hasn't stopped anyone from opening saunas and hostess bars in Hong Kong.

So Hong Kong's play for play scene is quite diverse  But I'm not a fan of the Karaoke bars. Which is why 141 comes in really handy. It's the online directory displaying photos (although blurred profiles) of ladies, categorized by price and the district where you can find them, and the services they provide. You can choose in-call service too. And the hotels don't have that joiner fee nonsense so all major hotels in Hong Kong are guest friendly.

Another one of the many beautiful girls found most likely in Kimberely Hotel - Her price is 1000HKD
The downside however is that Hong Kong's hotels are expensive. What's worse is that the rooms are small, even at the expensive hotels too.

But I've been to Hong Kong enough times to know which ones are affordable, clean and comfortable. Though hotel rates for even my choice hotels can soar due to holidays or conventions. So plan ahead and pick your travel dates.

I like to stay in the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. If you take a look at 141's website you'll find that there are many districts within Kowloon where you can find a shit load of women living in those areas, like Mongkok, Tsim Tsa Tsui, Jordan, Yau Ma Tei and Prince Edward. Great thing is that you can walk easily from one district to the next because Kowloon is not a big area.

So this is how it works with 141. You only need a phone to call the phone number of the girl. Depending on the type of girl you either visit her in her apartment, or visit her at the hotel she is staying at. You can purchase sim cards with prepaid minutes at a 7 Eleven or any other similar type convenience store. It should work as long as your phone is unlocked and GSM capable.

Here's a tip: Girls working out of hotels are better looking and usually younger. They cost more too, above 600HKD. And they typically don't give massages either, sort of like the sideline girls in Bangkok where you're paying more for looks and age rather than service.

HK massage girls in the lower price range typically operate out of their own apartments and provide massage.

I know that in the Kimberly Hotel in the Tsim Tsa Tsui district of Kowloon has a shit load of girls working on certain floors. The ladies rates start from 600HKD up to 1200HKD. Please keep in mind that the hotel has nothing to do with any of the prostitutes. As far as the hotel knows (or cares) is that a guest is simply staying at their hotel.

Another pricey HK girl in the 800HKD price in Tsim Tsa Tsui

What I do is whenever I see a profile of a girl I find hot and see that she's in the Tsim Tsa Tsui area and charging 800HKD, I know there's a good chance she's in the Kimberley Hotel. And when you call that number someone (usually some kind of pimp) picks up to tell you exactly where she's at or what room number. Anyways, you will know for sure because right on the girls profile it will say 'hotel walk in', which basically means they're working out of a hotel room.

And if she's busy or doesn't fit your schedule you can always ask who is available at the hotel. This is one of the reasons why I enjoy staying at the Kimberely Hotel. A lot of the hottest girls located on sex141 are inside that hotel. The hotel is also a super convenient and really good for exploring Hong Kong too.

Another hotel I really like in a great location is the Prudential Hotel Hong Kong. If you can afford their room rates they've got the biggest rooms in Kowloon. No, there are no hookers inside. The Prudential is close to the Jordan and Mong Kok district, where a lot of girls on 141 are found too. However, if you take a walk around you'll find signs like the one below by the entrance of apartment buildings:

One of the many brothels along Mongkok and Jordan districts in HK

I'm not a big fan of brothels that openly advertise on the streets of Hong Kong. However, I know a lot of guys that don't care. If these types of brothels are places you'd like to visit then consider staying at the Casa Hotel. This hotel has tiny small rooms and I'm not exaggerating one bit. But in terms of Hong Kong hotel prices, the Casa is affordable. There are many brothels around the hotel to check out.

The bulk of 141's directory are made up of these so called "one woman brothels" where massage girls work out of their apartments. Most of their prices start at around 250HKD and up to 600HKD. Many of these apartment brothels can be found around Kowloon, near the hotels I recommend above.

They do not have pimps so they are the only ones who pick up and tell you where the exact location and floor plus room number to get to. As a first timer, when you get to such a building you'd be surprised to see that the entire floor or floors are inhabited by one woman brothels. You can see by the tell tale signature red lights outside of the apartment doors. Some even have pictures of themselves wearing sexy lingerie.

So I'm heading to Hong Kong early next month and besides the great food I'll be checking out some PRC girls. And to be honest as fun as I think Bangkok's nightlife is I really don't mind mixing it up a bit by traveling and checking red light districts in other countries.

A Last Night Out at Poseidon Massage

Too drunk to hold the camera steady...
It was my buddy's last night in Bangkok before he crawled back to whatever hole he came from. For a treat I took him out to Sherbet G Club. It's his first experience ever at a club where you'll find many girls in the 8s to 10s in the looks and body category.

At Sherbet for the first 2 hours of drinking and having a great time I saw him whisper into the ear of the young 20 something. You can see from a mile away how bad he wanted to get into her panties. She shook her head and that's where things went down hill. I had already knew what he had asked her. And from the disappointment on his face I knew he didn't like the answer.

So I moved in to console the big lug and the first thing that came out of his mouth was, "Jim, you didn't tell me this place is one giant cock tease!" I just cracked up laughing.

Let's go to Poseidon I said. I had already planned on heading to Poseidon for a soapy massage since it was still early on in the night at about 10pm. And his flight was leaving 5am the next morning. And it was probably good that we stopped drinking since I was worried that the airline would deny him boarding if they see him so wasted.

By the time we walked out to the road to hail a taxi we were staggering like fools.

Traffic was going to be heavy going up Ratchada road and there are lots of clubs and pubs in the area, so we knew traffic could be a problem.

We assured our taxi driver if he could get us to Poseidon in 10 minutes he'd get a tip. What a big mistake. Most taxi drivers in Bangkok have a death wish. And offering a juicy tip for speeding is as good as giving a driver a license to kill passengers.

Sure enough, the got us there in 9 minutes by weaving through sub sois. I was going to hand the driver a 100THB tip on top of the 75THB fare. But my buddy gave the guy 500THB for everything and the driver was ecstatic. And my buddy's a scrooge. I'm sure right when he sobers up he's going to flip out.

When we got to the doors of Poseidon we had already discussed on checking out the model girls first on the 3rd floor.

For the newbies, if you want to take a look at the ladies in the model category, I recommend taking the elevators on the first floor. The elevators are located on the right side of the staircases. I say this because if you head straight up the stairs to the 2nd floor you'll come across the Poseidon's fishbowl section. That's where you'll come across a bunch of papasans or mamasans. For some reason, Poseidon has a pretty large sales force. Once I've counted 10 lounging around.

Anyways they'll try to get you to take a fishbowl girl so they can earn a commission, thinking you don't know any better. Unless you ask of course where the models are. However, it's just best to take the elevators from the 1st floor.

When we got to the 3rd floor we noticed there were not a lot of girls left. Most are eating or drinking with customers already or upstairs in the rooms. But the 4 'model' type girls sitting down didn't do anything for us. So we took the elevators back down to the 2nd floor to the fishbowl. By the way, Poseidon's model girls start at 3000THB and can go up to 6000THB. I've heard some ex-Penthouse girls cost 7000THB for 60 minutes and you have to make a reservation.

My suggestion is save your money. They are not worth it. Go buy a Thai Penthouse magazine and some lotion (unless you prefer dry action) and have a box of tissue handy. The money you save is priceless. Unless you have so much money you don't know what to do with it then go ahead and knock yourself out.

When we got down to the fishbowl we didn't see a whole lot of girls either. There were only 6 at the moment but at any given time, Poseidon has around 25 girls. If the mamasan of papasan tells you there are 40 girls working at any given moment, don't believe them. Never of all my years I have ever seen more than 30 girls sitting in a fishbowl. The place by far with the most available girls is Nataree Massage.

Girls sitting on the left side of the fishbowl cost 2200THB and on the right cost 2600THB. Both rates are for 2 hours and you only get 1 shot. You have to tip the girl separately if you want 2 shots.

We waited a bit and not too long a few more girls came down and sat on the 2200THB side. Since it was getting late we decided what the heck and chose our ladies.

Typically I'm a bit choosier though I can't say the same for my friend. In the looks department I give the fishbowl girl a 5. But overall, it was pretty good service as usual and the rooms are clean too. Which is one of the many reasons why I enjoy going to Poseidon.

After about an 1 and a half (even if they say you get 2 hours you normally don't get the full time paid for) my buddy headed back to his hotel to get ready after a couple hours of sleep.

I wished him a safe trip and said lets go back to Sherbet next time and he flipped me the bird.

Note: To get to Poseidon Massage, it's best to take the MRT subway train to Sutthisan Station. Make sure to look for Exit #4. Once you get out of the station, take a right and walk down. If you look up you will see Poseidon's neon lights. It's about a 300 meter walk.

A Revisit to Caesar's Soapy Massage

Caesars Massage in Huay Kwang - Bangkok
For some reason, a lot of first timers to Bangkok visit these Big 3 soapies in Huay Kwang:
  1. Poseidon
  2. Emmanuelle
  3. Caesars
A lot of it has to do with the fact that the Big 3 get mentioned fairly quite a lot on blogs and other similar nightlife related websites. Aside from Poseidon, the other 2 are not among my top 5 soapies.

However, for me I have fond memories of Caesars. It's the first soapy parlor I had ever set foot in. And it was the best first experience ever and jaded me to this day. Because today, the soapy experience, is simply watered down and service is passable at best. Good news is today there seems to be a lot more better looking girls today.

Just this past week a long time degenerate buddy of mine came over to Bangkok for his annual sexcapade.

He hates the go go bar scene and thinks it's a total rip off. And the loud music in the bars really annoys the hell out of him so he prefers the quiet gentle murmurings heard at a fishbowl.

He always books the same budget hotel near the soapies too called Hip Hotel in Huay Kwang. And it's a good choice too and only cost around 1500THB with taxes and breakfast included.

The Hip Hotel is at a strategic location for him to whore around too. Not only is the hotel a short walk to a cluster of soapies like Nataree, Emmanuelle and Caesars but he tells me there are hookers standing around the area by the entrance to the soi, right by Subway Entertainment massage.

So on his most recent stay he's been telling me to go with him to Caesars because for the past few days he's been hooking up with some hot looking talent. I figured why not, it wouldn't hurt to just take a look around. And I've been having a string of good luck recently by venturing off  my usual routine.

I agreed to meet up with him at the front entrance of Caesars, the first time I've been back in years. I saw a lot of luxury cars outside. Which is a good sign if the locals are there too. Sure enough things have changed inside, but not by much. The fishbowl is still where it is though the section where the sideliners and model girls look expanded.

We were greeted by a papasan who immediately recognized my friend who has been visiting frequently. The whole time he shadowed us as we scoped out the girls. It was about 7pm and there were a fair amount of girls for a Wednesday night. I counted at least 15 girls idling in the fishbowl and 12 sideliners chatting with a few trying to make eye contact.

To me, there were quite a handful of fishbowl and sideliners that caught my eye. So I asked the papasan for rates as was quoted 1900THB to 2200THB for certain fishbowl girls. Sideline girls ranged from 2400THB to 2800THB. Models started at 3200THB and can go as high as 3800THB. From what I saw, the models ain't worth that kind of money.

After 15 minutes of deciding and debating and teasing each others choice of girls, my friend decided on a buxom fish bowl girl and I picked a slim and tall 22 year old sideliner with a great pair of dimples (her tits were not bad either).

I paid 2800THB for60 minutes of her time. Was it worth it? Sure, it was fun. But I wouldn't consistently pay 2800THB while I can head across to Nataree and find a cute girl for 2300THB. Though Caesar's quality of girls are better then Nataree I have to admit.

Though my friend says he had a really good time the fishbowl girl he chose. So maybe someday I'll try out one of the ladies there.

Even then, if Caesar massage dropped their prices a little they just might see me there more often.

A Bit of Thai Comic Book Humor

Just came across this little piece of comic this weekend. If you're a frequent visitor to the soapy massage scene in Thailand you don't really need to read Thai to figure out what's going on in the top panel.

As you can see it's a guy in a soapy faced with making a choice in front of a fishbolw. The papasan is asking which lady he wants to choose. He says he can't decide. I want to point out though if you look at the top left corner you'll see two guys with snakes sticking out of their heads. There's a Thai saying "tao huaong nguu" roughly translated means old pervert. So if you ever hear a bar girl say you have a snake on your head you'll know exactly what she means.

Anyways the guy goes home and somehow his wife finds out he's been naughty and just like the papasan, his wife ask him to choose. But she's asking him to choose how he wants to die. And his reply is he can't decide. It really cracked me up.

Yes, I'm easily amused.

5 Recommended 1500THB GF Hotels in Bangkok to Beat the Chinese New Year Rush

Just recently I have been getting a lot of emails from guys who are looking for hotels this weekend and the week after. And they noticed that the room rates for most of the hotels they've stayed in previously during other months have gone up at least double.

Sure we're on the way to low season rates but there's a holiday coming up. Chinese New Years is coming up. Yes, Thailand has a large make up of Chinese population that has been integrated into Thai society. As a result Thais, particularly Thai-Chinese celebrate their New Years.

In general Chinese (particularly men) from neighboring countries are on a long break too and an influx of holiday poon seekers do visit Bangkok since it's such a popular destination. So that's why you're seeing a price increase from many hotels throughout the city.

Of course all hope is not lost. There are still plenty of affordable hotels but of course if you're reading this you're looking for a hotel that is girl friendly and preferably in the Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza section of town.

Well here are 5 gf hotels that haven't raised their prices that I highly recommend to beat the Chinese rush:

  1. Boss Suites Nana - 1550THB/ per night
  2. Paradiso Boutique Suites - 1500THB/night with breakfast
  3. Darjelling Boutique - 1300THB.night
  4. Amora Neoluxe Suites - 1800THB/night with breakfast (rate reflects 50% discount, check out a full review here) Okay, so it cost 1800THB, but it's still one of the best value hotels in Bangkok!
  5. Ruamchitt Plaza Hotel - 1600THB/night (this hotel is right above Thermae Bar, a place to pick up Thai freelancers)
It goes without saying these rates may be limited and best to book as soon as possible. Whether or not you're trying to beat the Chinese New Year rush, these recommended hotels are great choices year round. So far they have not increased their prices that much to compete against scores of other guest friendly hotels in Bangkok.

5 Must Not Miss Hotels Deals in Bangkok This Week

I've located a handful of hotels right in Bangkok's Soi Cowboy and Nana red light districts that are pushing out some heavy discounts. So in this post I'll share 4 thai girl friendly hotels in Sukhumivt and also 1 super affordable hotel in the soapy massage center of Huay Kwang.

Just to let everyone know, these discounts are limited in availability. Even though there is a certain date the discounts are available until. So the promotions are limited and based on first come first serve so if the special rates are still available then consider making the booking as soon as you can.

One last thing, because Chinese New Years is coming up this week you can expect a lot of hotels to jack up their rates. Which is even more the reason why if you can find a good deal you should either jump on it or think about visiting later if your travel dates are flexible.

Deluxe room at FurmaXclusive Asoke Hotel

The first hotel right by the go go bars on Soi Cowboy is the FurmaXclusive Asoke Hotels. It's a 4 star hotel that is also just a few minutes walk to the nearest MRT station. Not a bad spot to be in if you want to be close to the Makkasan Airport Link Express train.

And from now until November 12th, 2013 if you book 3 nights you'll get a 35% discount for a 32 square meter deluxe room. Price per night including breakfast and taxes is around 2800THB/night.

Check rates for your travel dates and read more reviews for FurmaXclusive Asoke Hotels

Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit
The Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit is a familiar high quality international hotel chain. It has 5 stars to its name including a expensive room price to prove it. Which is why if you can get a good deal for a room there you should jump at it. The hotel location is right by the corner of Asoke and Sukhumvit Junction, so it's a short hop to Soi Cowboy on foot or a 10 minute stroll to Nana Entertainment Plaza on soi 4.

I haven't been to the Sheraton's Hotel popular bar called Barsu in ages but I've been hearing that there are quite a few good looking Thai girls on the hook looking for customers. Might be worth a look see even if it's just to check out the live jazz bands that perform there frequently.

Right now the deal is book for 4 nights and receive a 25% discount. So nightly rate comes out to about 5700THB per night which for some it's still a bit pricey. But hey, if you can afford it then bravo to you.

1 Bedrooom Suite at President Solitaire
The President Solitaire is another hotel I have been recommending to those with a little bit of cash to spend or for those who just want to lap it up in luxury for a short time. It's located on Sukhumvit soi 11, not too far from Q Bar and it's like. Speaking of Q Bar, check out the French inspired restaurant in the back for an awesome meal and drinks, including Absinthe at reasonable prices.

Okay, back to the hotel. The President Solitaire is a 4 star hotel though it is aging. But still it is well maintained for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. There was a 50% off discount but that's gone now. I checked certain dates in March and there is a 20% discount which still isn't too shabby for a 80 square meter one bedroom including breakfast all for an unbeatable 2600THB including taxes.

Check rates for your travel dates and read more reviews for President Solitaire Hotel.

Up next is the Tai Pan Hotel on Sukhumvit soi 23 which is on the same soi on the east entrance of Soi Cowboy. So it's just a short 5 minute stroll away. I've written a full review here including it's no joiner fee policy via email confirmation. Right now they have a 30% discount. It's an adequate 3 star hotel in a top location with a lot of positive reviews.

Cha Da Hotel in Huay Kwang
Finally I know there are a lot of people who only enjoy going to soapy massage parlors and prefer staying next to a lot of them.

The Bangkok Cha Da Hotel is one of the better budget guest friendly hotels in Huay Kwang right by many soapies. The closest soapy is the Lord Spa which is pricey but they have a lot of hot Thai girls inside. Colonze 2 is not far from the hotel either, about a 10 minute walk. Emmanualle, Caesars and my all time favorite Nataree is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel doors too.

You can get a 26% discount at Cha Da Hotel which comes out to about 1250THB per night including taxes for a 30 square meter superior room. And they've recently renovated their rooftop pool too which has a great view over Huay Kwang.
