    Massage in Ubon

    You know what would be really handy? I list of all the sketchy massage places in Ubon. The last thing I'd want is to go into an unfamiliar massage place looking for a sports massage for sore muscles or a sore back and having the masseuse try to up-sell for extra services. Any places like that to avoid?

    If it is the last thing you want you can be sure it's available, i'd imagine the price will reflect the depth of service

    If it's 1800 baht then I would know not to even go in but most places in Europe a massage is 35 an hour and you don't know until they get to the buttock portion of the massage if they're going to offer off-the-menu extras.

    In Thailand I've gone in places that look like a brothel, all sorts of women in skimpy skirts outside on their telephones, you can't see in the windows, not much signage outside where I get a masseuse who looks like a hooker and she gives me a good massage and that's it.

    I've also gone to respectable places here where all the women are wearing traditional Thai clothing, serving tea inside, massage areas separated by curtains instead of closed off rooms and near the end of the massage the woman points and asks "massage this too? " Thanks but no thanks grandma.

    The opposite is also true, that's why I'm asking, just to be sure.

    The price for massage usually is the same range, around 300 an hour for oil, 200-250 and hour for Thai massage.

    Most of the respectable places only offer massage, most of the suspect looking ones have more on the menu. You can never tell by appearances. A masseuse in one place, ten minutes into the massage started rubbing balls for good luck like Arnold Palmer's wife.

    Indeed.


    It must just be the cynic in my wondering why you don't ask for a list of guaranteed legitimate places.....

    Whatever is said about Tha massage shops it is one of the better value for money experiences.
    Can't be too difficult or uncomfortable to find one that will provide the desired service by trial and error. Using this method won't exactly break the bank either way.
