One of the many things that I miss about Thailand when I am out of the country is the wide variety of massage options on every street. Pattaya massage is big business in sin city and it is not something that you can easily find in the UK. In fact it is impossible to find anything comparable if you take money into account.
In Pattaya, for as little as a 100 baht, you can get a traditional Thai massage. For 200 baht you can get my favourite… the Thai Oil massage! I defy anyone to have an oil massage in Thailand without relaxing completely…. and that’s if you go for the strictly legitimate version! I’ll admit that many a Pattaya massage is not often strictly legitimate and, if this is what you want, the oil massage in particular is likely to lead to offers of all sorts of happy endings.
Pattaya Massage Parlors
If it’s a low cost professional massage that you want, there are literally hundreds of parlors to choose from in Pattaya. You’ll find that many of them are concentrated around the main tourists areas and you’ll also find that these are the parlors that offer ‘extra’ services as standard. That’s not to say that the upmarket venues don’t offer this; I’ve even been to a high class establishment with my Thai wife accompanying me and heard some funny stuff going on at a nearby massage bed! Generally speaking though, my advice is to steer clear of the naughty areas if you want to find an authentic ‘massage only’ parlor.
There is one parlor in Pattaya, near to a naughty area, that I’ve been told is strictly massage only. It is called Eden Massage and is found on Soi Diana. I’m told the service is good, but I can’t verify that as I’ve never been before myself. I’m going to have to try it out though, I won’t believe that there are no happy endings offered there until I get a good slap across the face for suggesting one! It is located just around the corner from Soi LK Metro, which is a definite naughty area, so I’m guessing that it is not usually faces that are being slapped there… time will tell!
Pattaya Massage Additional Information
For lots more information, including descriptions of my own massage experiences, have a look at this section on my website: ‘Pattaya Massage’. It covers the soapy massage, traditional massage, oil massage, foot massage and some… erm… less authentic offerings.
