Soapy Massage’ parlours in Chiang Mai (อาบอบนวดเชียงใหม่)) are in fact nothing more than Thai-style brothels where the standard treatment is a bath together with the girl and subsequently sex. There isn't much massage involved although perhaps originally a body-to-body rub was included with the girl sliding down on the customer on an airbed with a lot of soap. Some call it dirty soapy massage, I guess that's because some guys can be very dirty and therefore need a very thorough rub cheeky.

In Thai, this type of business is often referred to as ‘aab-ob-nuad’ (อาบอบนวด), literally meaning bath-sauna-massage, but again, in a soapy massage parlour in Chiang Mai you won't find much sauna or massage, just a soapy bath and sex.

The standard layout of the premises is a fishbowl or aquarium, meaning a glass window behind which the girls are sitting with a number tag for the customers to pick (ตู้กระจก). In some places the glass window is like a one-sided coated mirror on the inside (partially) blocking the girls from seeing the customers, while they can see the girls, but in many places this is not really the case and the girls can stare at you as well, even though the Papa-sans suggest otherwise.

There are only five Soapy Massage parlours in Chiang Mai and most of them breath the atmosphere of a past glory. Apparently, it’s not easy to open up a new one, probably because of license issues. Rumour has it that the Rattanakosin hotel tried to open one a few years ago, but was refused the license. Celebrities appeared to be a new one, but in fact is the same business that used to be in the Chiang Mai Hills Hotel. So, five seems to be the number the government deems sufficient to cater for the market in Chiang Mai.

Typical fishbowl or aquarium setting with the girls behind a glass they can't see through (Celebrities)

Typical prices for soapy massages in Chiang Mai range between 1,200 and XXX baht (Premium Insiders know how much XXX is). That includes the room, which is situated inside the premises. Some places offer VIP rooms which are a bit more luxurious at about 150 baht extra. Never mind shared comments you find below quoting prices of THB 2,200 - 4,000, it just means these people weren't smart enough to purchase a membership here and paid too much.


The prices for the girls differ depending on (supposedly) how pretty she is. Normally, the girls are divided into 2-3 groups or classes with different number and class tags, for example “B” for body massage, “M” for model and “S” for supermodel, or whatever name they give it. Clearly, the price you get quoted by the Papa-san depends on how you look and behave and how good your Thai is (one more reason to do that Thai course), sometimes you simply can't get the bottom price just because you're a foreigner but at least you can pay near local prices if you know what they are.

Officially, the timeframe is 1.5 hours for a soapy massage but most customers probably don’t use up the entire timespan because the girls don't really like to do it too long (they'll complain about pain) and it's one-shot-only.

Most opening hours of soapies are from late afternoon until midnight, although some are open earlier. More on the best time to go there for PREMIUM INSIDER MEMBERS only.

Soapy massage are some of the most straigtforward and 'efficient' ways to have sex, because the girls are simply there to be picked and the rooms are inside the building. No loss of time, searching for difficult to find places, and relatively safe sex because the girls are medically checked for diseases every 2 weeks or so. Compare that with the more covert take-away brothels, which are much harder to find and where the girls aren't checked at all or not so often, and you'll understand why soapies are the obvious first choice for many. On the other hand, soapies can feel like meat processing factories. Up to you to decide on which side of the window the meat is.

The five soapy massage parlours in Chiang Mai are:

Sayuri Entertainment Complex

Sayuri is Chiang Mai's most well-known and most popular male entertainment complex. This place truely has a high turnover. Open from as early as noon to midnight, there are girls working all the time and the clientèle consists mainly of Thai and other Asians. Some Asian tour operators even bring their male tourists here in groups. There is a fairly large selection of girls on offer in 3 categories at various prices.

Besides the main business of the soapy massage, the complex houses a coffeeshop, a karaoke and a regular Thai massage shop.


Chiang Mai Massage Parlour

The Chiang Mai Massage Parlour is one of the most worn out soapies in Chiang Mai. Generally with a rather poor selection of girls.

Located to the east of town, this is also a rather old soapy massage parlour.

I`ve tried most of these Soapy Massage Parlours, they all operate in the same way and each time have been disappointing.
The service is clinical with lots of tissues involved and mechanical, with no massage involved.
There are no listed prices and these can range from 1600 baht to 3000 baht, depends how gullible they consider the customers.
It`s meant to be 90 minutes, but I`ve never received that amount of time, the girls will try and get it over with as soon as possible.
Don`t fall for the ploy if a girl offers you a second shot. She won`t mention this, but once she breaks open a second condom, you'll be charged double the first quoted price.

What I mean to say about Celebs see through class window. The girls can see you as you walk through the door. I read in one message that the girls can't see you, but that is not true. They can see everything you do. The only thing they can't do is hear what you say. Some of the girls have the right to decline servicing you if they tell their boss who is the owner of celebs. He's the one collecting all the money. I befriended a police officer who told me Celebs is being investigated and it would be to my best interest to just stay away because even he didn't know when they would be coming in rounding up the girls to talk to them. The Burmese girls are refugees being brought in from Mae Hong Song Province an area so poor the girls mostly underage are being trafficking in and used as sex slaves. They are easy to pick out for their whiter skin.

Celebs has a see through class window, some of the girls are Burmese and are being trafficking. I would highly advise your readers to stay away from this soapy as NGO has been notified. Anyway the place is a dump. The door pimps are scary as hell and intimidating they walk you inside and tell you which girls do the best job. Which is a turn off, because it makes me believe they had their way with the girls. Wonder why its being investigated now.

Sayuri on the day that I went there only one girl was behind the fish bowl. I went a second time same situation. And this was at 6 p.m. the first time and 7:30 p.m. the second time. The place in my opinion is cold as ice. I won't return.

The Turkish soapy Amarin is closed for repairs. I was told it won't be open for another 5 months probably in May 2019.

Absolute is open, the mama sane a very beautiful thai lady in her own right is very helpful, the price is low until you go into the room with the sexy girl of your choice. In the room the girl gets you so hot and horny but then springs the request for more money. Very expensive. Your so worked up you'll gladly pay the 1000 baht just to get your rocks off.

Pandora I don't know anything about, except what I read in your report. Older Thai Women. So I stayed away.

Rasberry runs about 2,600 for everything.

Fang-VIP runs specials 1300 for two girls with a hand job finish. Higher prices for other services plus of course a tip of 1000 bahts. The place is a dump.

Mermaid is by far the best soapy massage, about a block away from Fang-VIP. I befriended the owner, and she tells me all kinds of stories how the cops come in every month to collect their 100,000 bahts sometimes more just to stay open. What a racket. Full service runs 2,500 bahts and the girls about 15-20 in the late afternoon are absolutely beautiful. Not a dog ugly one among them like the larger soapy massage joints.

Went to a fish bowl soapy in Pattaya. It was fanta Posted on November 09, 2017 at 15:54:19
I tried karaoke in Phitsanulok, and it was a 100% disaster. Took the girl to a hotel, and all she could say she had to go to school. So I left the room, and went home, and got nothing. I really, do not know what she wanted. To pay her just to show up at the hotel?
