Gay Massage & Sauna in Bangkok
Gay saunas in Bangkok are dotted around the city although the biggest concentration can be found in the Silom area.
You can enjoy a range of treatments at these discreet venues so if last night's partying and playing left you with sore muscles (or a bruised ego), why not take advantage of a world-famous Thai massage offered by skilled (and sexy) masseurs, or unwind at one of Asia's finest saunas? We promise you'll be treated like a king, or queen!
Some of these select gay saunas are open late into the night (or early morning, depending on which way you look at it), so you can pretty much choose your time to suit.
