Clientele
On my visit, there were about 20 customers at any given time. Total number of customers during my stay maybe 50. About 90% Asian and 10% White. Age range 30 to 40, average bodies.

Security
Positive: steps in hallway European size, handrail on both sides
Negative: some private rooms have barbed wire on top of their walls (that do not reach to the ceiling). Barbed Wire? WTF!

Internet

Verdict
One of my saddest sauna visits. I didn’t put in my contact lenses, and I’m glad I didn’t because it would have been a waste of time and money, there was nothing to see that would justify contact lenses (I am short sighted, can’t focus on anything further than 2 meters away). I will be back one time (on an underwear day) to confirm the findings above.
