That makes 32. I learned of some of them only while compiling this list.

I have been to Babylon (about 10 times), Bangkok 10 (1), Beach Resort (1), Chakran (10), d.blu (1), Dejavu (4), Edok (2), Farose 2 (about 5 times), Heaven (1), Hijack (2, once when it was Gaya), Mania (2), Men Factory (2), Muffil (3), Pumarin (1), Seed (5), 39 underground (about 5-10 times), that makes 15.

With recent success at saunas (on average 1 out of 2 visits, before it was 1 out of 5, making Saranrom a cheaper option), I will go to more saunas and try to visit most of them, twice for a balanced impression.

  3. good work, I thought there were more-how did you check if they were still open? There should also be 1 just over SamRong/BKK-border, about 15 mins beyond end of BTS-Boring.
    From my last view-Utopia was also quite out of date with BKK.
    Could you maybe describe what make you have now more success in scoring?

  4. another fairly new one is RUSH, somewhere near/on Sukh 48-advertises on gthai.net
    Paradise BangKhen is not really in BK, but just east of the MALL NgamWongWan, just a small homey one.
    And so SEED has reopened now? Other place?

  5. Seed is mainly internet cafe, but in the new location they have a sauna that can accommodate two normal built Thai.

    I have not been to Cruising 1.

    Somehow missed Rush - it's not listed in the websites I quoted!. Will check and update.

    I checked these places online; only for Farose 1 I can confirm from checking in person, it is still open (there was incorrect information about it being closed on the internet).

    Darkrooms eliminate the need for a cute face. Slim body, absence of body hair and warm dry skin is sufficient.

  7. i too thought you went to cruisy 1 sauna before?

  8. that place just over BKk-Sam Rong border is SAFE PLACE.
    Troy is also reported closed.
    there should be some place named Hercules- near faraway Siam Waterpark.
    Mania is usually named Sauna mania-populair among visiting mainland Chinese.

  9. I think Rush never opened. Nothing on the web except about forthcoming opening then nada. Hercules closed. New Seed great. Dblu not a real sauna, more of a massage place.
