Happy Ending Massage in Bangkok

Last updated: February 26th, 2017 | in Bangkok | Thai Girls

When you think of Bangkok, what’s the first picture that comes into your mind? Spicy food? Traffic jam? Shopping malls? Quite possibly yes – if you were reading some other sort of Thailand related blog. But right now you are on Thailand Redcat and I bet the first thing you think of when you hear someone saying “Bangkok” are young Thai girls in short skirts who eagerly smile at you in front of a massage salon.

The red light scene in Thailand is undergoing changes these days, with many foreigners complaining that the service, attentiveness and entertainment especially in the beer bars isn’t quite what it used to be. Different to the massage industry where business is thriving, maybe the prices have gone up a little but the ever increasing number of tourists (and most expats) are happy to pay 800 Baht for an hour of very healthy entertainment. It’s quite safe to say that there are more happy ending massage salons in Bangkok than ever before.

Average Prices in Bangkok’s Massage Salons:

  • Foot Massage: 200 Baht (don’t take one if you want a happy ending as you don’t get a private room)
  • Thai Massage: 300 Baht
  • Oil Massage: 400 Baht
  • Hand Job: 500 Baht
  • Blow Job: 700-1,000 Baht
  • Sex: 1,000-1,500 Baht

The massage salons are usually also the places that most western men make their first experiences with paid sex. So the way of thinking is like “I don’t want to be jerked off or anything like that, but she seems really nice so let’s just try out a Thai massage.” And it’s a lot more discrete to spend an hour in a private massage room instead of walking down the street hand in hand with a bar girl.

In this guide to happy ending massage in Bangkok I’ll give you the complete overview of the best streets and areas in this category. You can find the exact locations of all mentioned places on the map at the end of the article.

Sukhumvit Soi 4 & Soi 5

Massage Girls in BangkokThe area most frequented by sex tourists and sexpats in Bangkok is Nana, and the biggest clusters of massage salons are found all along Soi 4 and in the courtyard of Soi 5 across opposite of Foodland. Since there are so many different types of entertainment places in this area, it’s not uncommon that you change your mind while looking for a massage and head into one of the dozens of beer bars or go go bars instead or pick up a street prostitute for the same price as an hour of massage with happy ending.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Stumble Inn (Soi 4) or Gulliver’s (Soi 5).

Alley connecting Sukhumvit Soi 11 and Soi 13

Massage Salons in Soi 13 BangkokEven though you can find massage salons here and there all along Sukhumvit Road, it just makes more sense to visit one of the few “clusters” that have more than a dozen of shops right next to each other so you have a wider selection of girls to choose from and don’t have to walk for hours in the heat until you find one you like. The little alley connecting Sukhumvit Soi 11 and Soi 13 is one of these typical clusters. The massage girls there tend to be more naughty than usual as the area is relatively quiet and most shops are rented by hookers themselves so it’s not uncommon that you just bargain with them for a price for hand job or sex without any massage at all.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Cheap Charlie’s (Soi 11).

Sukhumvit Soi 23

Happy Ending Massage Bangkok

This cluster of happy ending massage salons in Soi 23 is not just great because the girls tend to be younger and more attractive than in a lot of other areas, but it’s also super convenient to reach both by MRT (Sukhumvit Station) and BTS (Asoke Station). Just leave the station and walk down Soi 23 for 50 meters and you’ll find the first three massage salons (two on the right, one on the left) and then another 100 meters down the street there are even more shops with even better looking girls.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Soi Cowboy.

Sukhumvit Soi 22

Happy Ending in Soi 22

If you are wondering why I’m mentioning Soi 22 after Soi 23, well that’s because we started with Soi 4 (Nana) in lower Sukhumvit and while Soi 23 (Asoke) is located further “up” Sukhumvit Road, it comes before Soi 22 that’s located on the opposite side and another 300 meters further up. If you have no idea what the heck I’m talking about, it doesn’t really matter, just look at the map towards the end of the article. What does matter though is that you can find literally dozens of naughty massage salons all along Soi 22, among them some truly extraordinary places offering services like prostate and tantra massage (see below).

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is the Queen’s Park Plaza.

Sukhumvit Soi 33

Massage Salons in Sukhumvit Soi 33Just off Phrom Phong BTS station is Sukhumvit Soi 33. It’s full of Japanese style karaoke bars and Japanese oriented massage salons (not to be confused with massage parlors). But don’t worry since the mostly young, cute and innocent looking girls are more than happy to welcome you as a Farang as well. Especially during the afternoon on weekdays when everyone seems terribly bored and playing the latest Line game on their phones.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Ocean Bangkok.

Sukhumvit Soi 24/1

Japanese Massage in BangkokThe last massage hot spot on Sukhumvit Road is Soi 24/1. If you’ve never come here you’ll be quite surprised because there aren’t many bars in this area and you feel like you reached the dead end. But then you enter that small 50 meter alley and find one massage salon after another. Most of them are actually massage parlors offering the full program from 2,000 Baht upwards for 1 hour. They all kind of target Japanese customers and many of the places are Japanese owned, too. Still open to everyone so just check it out for yourself.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Queen Bee (Soi 26).


Patpong Massage SalonsThe Patpong area isn’t that famous for its massage salons, but more for its Go Go Bars, the town’s biggest gay bar area as well as two of Bangkok’s best blow job bars. The average massage girl in Patpong isn’t nearly as young or attractive as down in Sukhumvit so I don’t really recommend you this area unless you just happen to stay over there, then sure just walk down Silom Road and Surawong Road where you will find 90% of the massage salons in the Patpong area.

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in this area, a good place to sit down and have a beer is Patpong Cafe.

Ratchaprarop, Huai Kwang & Bang Rak

Happy Ending in Huai KwangWith most people looking for their special massage in Sukhumvit and Patpong, there are also a few massage hubs only known to few foreigners. It’s usually areas that have big and renowned hotels, but are somewhat off the city center and tourist radar. The best examples for these little known massage hubs are Ratchaprarop Soi 8 (Ratchaprarop Airport Link Station), Pracha Rat Bamphen Road (Huai Kwang MRT Station) and Soi Charoen Krung 42 (Saphan Taksin BTS Station).

  • If you don’t like any massage girl in these areas, good places to sit down and have a beer are J.T. Beer Garden (Ratchaprarop Soi 8), Huai Kwang Terrace (Pracha Rat Bamphen Road) and Sirocco Sky Bar (Bang Rak).

Prostate, Testicle & Tantra Massage in Bangkok

Prostate, Testicle and Tantra Massage in Bangkok

Yes, you read it right. Since the massage industry in Thailand is booming, there are now opening salons who specialize on these kind of special services. Akane is such a place, they got two locations (Chidlom BTS station & Sukhumvit Soi 33, the one in Soi 33 tends to have more attractive girls and even mirrors on the walls of the rooms). And then there is also Analisa Massage, Tantra Massage and PM Bangkok in Soi 22 which all have the same owner and they do it smart by renting a few shops and sending over the girls wherever there is demand. Upon entry you’ll be presented with a menu and offers like Testicle Massage (1,000 Baht), Prostate Massage (1,300 Baht), Nuru Gel Massage including PM and Toys (1,800 Baht) or Tantric Massage (2,200 Baht). It’s a whole different experience than your standard massage with happy ending as these girls really know what they do, want to pleasure you and there is no need to bargain with them for a price as you pay the money upfront.

Locations of Happy Ending Massage Salons in Bangkok

How about Happy Endings on Khaosan Road?

If you are a young backpacker and reading this then you are probably wondering why I have completely ignored Khaosan here. Well yes, there are plenty of massage places in Khaosan, but they are all totally “normal” and don’t provide extras. Let me know in the comments if you made other experiences. The average massage woman in that area is also well beyond the age of 30 and they all wear traditional Thai massage dresses. You are better off to just have a few cheap beers in the bars (80-100 Baht for a big bottle) and then look for a girl in one of the night clubs.

How about Ladyboy Massage Salons in Bangkok?

All the places mentioned in this guide have employed (mostly) young and middle aged Thai women. However, if you are looking for something new and are curious if ladyboys do their jobs really better than the girls as “they know what a guy wants” then you might check out my guide to the ladyboy massage salons in Bangkok.

    Hey Redcat, after a rather unsatisfying Australia trip for the last 6 months I’m looking to restructure my plans and do 2-3 months of Thailand. I want to start by living in Bangkok for at least one month. Obviously I would love to try out all the different establishments. However, I just read that everything fun in Thailand is 20+. I’m 19. Do you know if this will be enforced by security? Or don’t they actually care who enters their Beer Bars/soapys/massage parlors, as long as they pay?
    Since I like to dress decently, I probably won’t look like a backpacker but rather walk around in a suit or at least good shirt.

    • Redcat says:

      Don’t worry Jan, as a 19y old you won’t be differently treated than a 30y old or 91y old. Maybe from some girls who prefer older guys (or the other way around), but not from any “officials”.

      • Jan says:

        Awesome, thank you!
        I actually hope that some would be delighted to see a rather young, (objectively) rather handsome guy as opposed to a lot of the old tourist. Then again, I’m more unlikely to be an ATM for them, so that might kill their interest. I should probably try to hook up with some of the uni girls.

        Do you have any tips on where to look for nice apartments in a good location so I can get everywhere rather fast? I hate taking a one hour ride to get to the next interesting place. I don’t mind ditching out 15.000-20.000 baht for a month of rent, but would like to get something pretty for that money, if that’s possible. Any recommendations? The city is so huge that it seems a bit difficult to pick good locations as first timer.

        Thank you! I really enjoyed reading your blog as its the most up-to-date and in depth one I could find regarding all topics!

    I would say these small massage shops are the best experiences to be had and I avoid the soapy massage parlors at all costs. The small massage shops are hit or miss; some of the rooms are nice but some not. Most of the traditional thai massages are decent and can be followed by a special and I can just say no to the special if I don’t want it. Even with the special it turns out I often get a much better experience at less cost than the soapys where most of those girls are really hardened and nasty, who do it too many times and just want your session with them over as fast as possible. I prefer a slower, sweeter experience so I find these small massage shops suite me fine. I once made the mistake of taking a girl out of a soapy and never again will I do that. Papasans demanding tips, high costs and the girl already demands a 3-4000 tip before even getting to my hotel so she can stay all night after spending 700 bahts at my cost at 7-11. I got taken for 4500 baht one night and I kicked her out of my room after 15 mins after constant pressuring for thousands of baht tip to take care of her family before we even started anything.

    what time are these salon open in Sukhumvit Soi 23, as I will have a long layover of 8 hrs from 7am to 3pm. Please guide me as also the massage payment is different from the happy ending? Thank you!

    • Redcat says:

      Most massage salons in Soi 23 are open until about midnight, some even as late as 2am, because there are many guys in nearby Soi Cowboy who will want a massage in case they didn’t take a girl from the go go bars.
      You would usually pay the “tip” for the happy ending directly to the girl in the room, and the massage price afterwards at the cashier in the lobby. The exception are the all inclusive massage salons like Analisa Massage or Akane – here you would pay everything upfront.

    Midweek I gave it a try at the massage place next to Family Mart, there is a tall stair caise, and at the first floor they keep the reception. The place have 8 to ten persons to massage, approx half of them are lady boys. I got the best looking one. The massage at the back was not really massage. A good thing though was that he massaged long strokes from the feet and up. So my bottum got a lot of tuch. After 20 minutes he asked me to turn, and went straight after my dick. I asked how much, and he opened with 2.000 Bath for a handjob. I said now, he got down to 1.000 Bath, and the next price was 500 Bath. The handjob it self wasnt that bad, I asked him to stop a couple of times, but finally I was finish. And that was that. Go shower. After lesser than 30 minutes. I asked him to give me 1 hours massage, he stroke me a minute or so, and then he went out. In and out again. And while I took on my close he waited with clean bed sheed in his hands. I felt it like I was in a factory. At least it was a money machine. I did not want to destroy my own day so I did not make a lot of problems but for sure I will chose my Bangkok massage more carefully.
