1 Hour Thai massage ฿100?


Recommended Posts

I was in Pattaya for my second visit ever, in September 2020. Yes, it was a ghost town. Stayed for under 24 hours. I do remember there were 2-3 massage shops on a street perpendicular to Beach Road that had 1 hour Thai massage for ฿100. I skipped the massage but my 2 friends, a guy and girl both adventured inside and confirmed later that day they were indeed ฿100 for 1 hour Thai massage. Maybe it was a COVID special? Does anyone have any idea if there are such deals out there still? No need for extras, thanks! Just the massage will do. 

 

I appreciate it!

I would feel terrible/ashamed only paying that much........I think at least 300 Baht would be fair for an hour.

In a country that has a daily minimum wage of $11.00 a day do really think $3.20 an hour is exploitation ?

I'm a good tipper. The price is the price. Thanks though for the nice informative post you have there.

If I pay ฿300, the wealthy shop owner takes ฿200 and gives ฿100 to the masseuse. If I pay ฿100 and tip ฿100 the masseuse makes out like a bandit. Works well for me my friend. 

 

 

Friends wife work in a traditional shop (Soi Buakhao), her charge out rate is Bt.350 per hour. she gets 50%.

Well the tip makes a huge difference....you are now officially my hero (not being sarcastic by the way).

And in the end my legs and back feel much better. On a side note, the 10 or so massages I've had in Pattaya Jomtien have ranged from $200-300. Depending on the masseuses attention to my requests ie: this part of my back, this area of my neck, I typically tip 40-80. My tip does depend on the full price of the massage including tip. It's what I've got. Maybe I should consider skipping the relief if the only moral thing to do is to pay ฿375+ tip out the door.

I always leave at least 100 b tip for massages.  It amazes me how many people leave nothing I have seen it many times.  Mostly it seems Falang females don't tip or maybe give 20 b.

so you wouldn't go to the 100 baht shops? or you go but give a 200 baht tip?

on jomtien 10h for 1500b.

but they refused the second time when I went there, just  before the 3rd wave.

Others refused any discounts for bulk order, minimum 200/h

I really admire you that you can lie there for 10 hours for a massage 😁

it was for me and my wife, over several days.

All together we had 40h massage over a week. One day I had 6h, spread over morning to late night.

Because it's cheap and because we were on holidays and had plenty of time

tourist area regular thai massage 1 hour 300baht now often reduced to 150baht. tipping not part of east asian culture (western import).

have still tipped for exceptional / home service, but thats rare......

the price is the price; if its 100baht that the shop choice; if sub-std service go elsewhere until satisfied.

Living in BKK the option wouldn't present itself, but if it did I would pay what I thought was the going rate 250/300.

If you think even little like Thai you pay more(if get good service). And yes im not talk "happy end"! Even im farang i try act like im not! I pay more if i think service was good and value was more than asking price!
