Bangkok UPDATED – Secret Freelancer Street, Massage Parlors & Best Bars!

What’s up, King Epic here!

Today, I will cover 4 different topics. The first one is a hidden street full of working girls.

So, let’s get started!

#1 – Secret Hooker Street

I remember a few months ago I was in the taxi on the way home from R.C.A. It must’ve been well past midnight, I was quite tired but suddenly jumped up,

“Whoa what is this?”

As I looked outside the taxi window, I noticed tons of girls standing on the street. Working girls. It must’ve been at least 50 – on what looked like an otherwise empty street.

No bars or anything else nearby.

I had no idea where that street was, why the girls were standing there … until I randomly came across the same street a few days ago and realized,

“Ah, this is that street hooker spot from months ago!”

That street is the street behind “La Belle Entertainment Complex” and the girls you see on the street are from this massage place that work the streets after their shift.

I don’t really see a reason why you would go to this spot when you can find girls at lets say Soi Cowboy, Nana, etc.

Then again, it’s one of those areas you can explore if you want something a bit different to “regular” nightlife.

#2 – Bangkok Soapy Massages

Talking about Soapy Massages in Bangkok, it’s all business as usual – except for “Nataree“. In late 2016, there has been a raid and ever since that massage parlor is closed.

No other venues that were effected.

There are regular inspections/raids but I guess that’s a good thing when you see that places are still operating, it probably means they are not doing something completely shady.

The full list of my recommended (Soapy/Nuru) massage venues, you can find inside My Thailand Guide.

What such a massage looks like, you can find my video reviews in the description. One Nuru massage that I thought was really good, a weird soapy and one review on a place that I think was out to scam people.

In these big massage places, not finding a girl is rarely an issue because there are so many to choose from.

With smaller massage shops, they will sometimes have somewhere around 10 massage girls – not unlikely that none of the girls catch your eye.

In that case, always leave. Don’t waste your money or feel pressured to book a service. You are simply looking at the menu at this point, you have ZERO obligation to pay.

That would be my #1 money-saving tip for those kinds of venues. The good thing is you usually have a ton of other massage places within walking distance (think Soi 23).

#3 – Off The Beaten Path

Another suggestion. Very easy. Doesn’t cost you a buck. Say there’s one evening where you don’t want to be at the bar, or perhaps you are with a girl.

Date or whatever it might be. Venture off the beaten path. It doesn’t have to be far from the tourist spots or train station, even walking down one of the sidestreets will show you a completely different side of Bangkok.

The area outside of Plantium Fashion mall would be such an example. You can walk there from Siam BTS via the skywalk and will notice fewer and fewer tourists the further you go.

Lots of nice, local restaurants, some street vendors. 60 Baht haircuts.

#4 – High End Bangkok Bars & Lounges

Somebody had asked me about where he could find a bar next to the street. Not a girly bar, just a regular bar for a date or to hang out.

Most outdoor bars in Bangkok have live bands.

The easiest ones to get to, you would find next to the Chit Lom & Phloen Chit BTS. Many times, those bars are part of a hotel. Here’s an example of a nice bar, just outside of Chit Lom BTS.

Alright, that’s it for today. 4 different topics I’ve put together in this video. If you have a question, or want me to cover a specific topic in the next video, let me know in the comments below.

See you next time!
