BANGKOK -- area code (66-2)
Saunas in Bangkok are mainly busy after work until 10pm, or starting in late afternoons on weekends and holidays.
Comments from Utopians:
"I rate the saunas on the scale of 10 as follows:
1. Babylon: 9 out of 10 (the best of all for foreigners, but a bit difficult to access)
2. Chakran: 7.5 (a bit shabby and full of chubby 30+ now; needs to replace some furniture)
3. Heaven: 7 (locals, but interesting)
4. Sauna Mania: 6 (very local and young, plus chubby ladyboys and bears)
5. Macho Sauna: 5.5 (very good based on local standards, but difficult to reach)
6. Men Factory: 5 (small, clean and easy to access)
7. Cruising Sauna 1 and Cruising Sauna 2: 4 (very local, but enjoy the naked nights)
8. 39 Underground: 4 (in a tiny hole, very local with some fun)
9. The Beach: 4 (extremely local and cheap; enjoy the pool and cruising around)
10. Paradise: 3.5 (very local, but still have some fun)
11. GG Sauna: 3 (for older locals preferring karaoke)
12. Hercules Executive Health Club: 3 (still interesting, but too local and far away from the city center)
13. EDOK, Male Box, Muffill, Dejavu and Mind Sauna: 2
14. Farose 1 and Farose 2: 0.5 (run-down building, shabby, without health and safety concern; don't risk it)"

CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT -- Silom, Suriwong, Sathorn, Lumphini, Chinatown
Babylon UTOPIAN VERIFIED NOV 2013
Soi Nantha (off Sathorn Soi 1), Utopia Map, 02-213-2108. From the Malaysia Hotel parking lot make two right turns and a left (8 minute walk). World famous men's complex and sauna. Gym, restaurant, disco, internet access, jazz performances, parties. Facilities including swimming pool, sauna, steam, jacuzzi, dark maze, large gym, disco, fantasy spaces, private cabins and hotel rooms (in their Barracks section). The real fun starts after about 5pm when they open the connecting door between the two sides of the Garden of Earthly Delights (labyrinth and cabins) and circulation begins. The pool is clean and well maintained, and the gym is as well equipped. Ask for condoms if you run out. International crowd.
Comments from Utopians:
"Went to Babylon around 9pm on Fri night, and, indeed, it was wild and fun. There was a foam party happening at the pool with male models dancing on the ledge, and a jam-packed crowd. Music was loud. More than half of the crowd were, I think, foreigners, with many westerners and many Daddies. There were also young locals mixed in the crowd (but if you prefer only young local guys, I would recommend Chakran for you). The pool area is huge, but the locker rooms are a bit tight, and the showers too few. The rooms are also few considering the size of the crowd. I liked the maze. It is not very easy to access, as you need to
take MRT (not BTS) Lumpini, and a long 15 minute walk passing by many embassies, and at night it feels a bit desserted. So, I suggest you take a motorcyle from the front of the soi for B$20 (there are drivers wearing orange jackets)." -- kimchiseoul, Nov 4, 2013
"The sauna is excellent, the only gay sauna I know where I can stay comfortably for half a day with much to do besides the obvious fun, although it could be much better if they had some events where those big towels, that are often in the way, have to be removed." -- steven_g, Oct 10, 2013

Sauna Mania UTOPIAN VERIFIED OCT 2013
35/2 Soi Pipat 2 (off Soi Convent), Silom, Utopia Map, 081-817-4073. Same lane and 5 or 6 blocks away from Eat Me Restaurant. Nearest Sky Train station is Sala Daeng Station; MRT is Chang Nonsi Station. Smaller then Chakran but nice and friendly. 1/F has lockers (you get a lock at reception), a large bar, a good workout room with weights, machines and TV. 2/F is the cruising maze area with private cabins. 3/F has showers, steam room, hot sauna, and garden area lit with string lights where guys gather to talk and take naps on recliners. 4/F is another garden area with moveable, trellis-like partitions to block off an area for semi-privacy. This top floor is cruisy. Crowd is mostly Thai white collar, 30-40yo, some muscular. There are a small number of other Asians and a few westerners. Weekends, especially Sat, is quite full.
Comments from Utopians:
"Of the 4 or 5 saunas I visited in Bangkok, Sauna Mania offered me the best experience. For me, the most important factor are the guys there. I went on the naked days (Thu and Sun after 7pm) and the place was packed with 20-40yo Asians, in good shape, of which nearly half were my type (something very rare) and nicely approachable. I was walking to the place behind a group of cute young locals. I must have later got in touch with them in the maze, blended in with another fifty or so nice bodies. After an hour I was completely satisfied and left happily. I had read some negative comments about this sauna but I'm glad they didn't disuade me. If the place is now painted black and darker than it was before, I didn't see a drawback in this. There were a few older men, out of shape too, which did not bother me at all. The staff was very friendly. Price was right (a bargain, for the fun), and the place is easy to find (look it up on Google Maps, even 'walk to it' in Street View)." -- steven_g , Oct 3, 2013
"Went with my Singapore friends for the Songkran festival. We liked Sauna Mania last year and thought it was nicer than Chakran in overall impression. However, this year it was a let-down because the place is really changing too much, becoming all black and dark and much dirtier than before. Original design was good. The guys were older, too, this time (maybe because they have better chance in the dark?) and less muscle, more chubs, and more aggressive grabbing. 2/F garden used to be nicely lit, but now only dark. We stayed only an hour and left disappointed. Sad, because Mania used to be a nice place near our hotel." -- Hongkuan, Apr 26, 2013
"This place is pure, raw fun. Especially crowded on naked nights. Was there on Sun, and the maze was packed with naked bodies. Some tried to be shy, but the body-to-body contact just made the shyness impossible. Crowd is local 20s-40s, with good bodies. Enjoy." -- alexbam, Apr 24, 2013
"Visited today. The staff seem to be making more frequent clean-ups of the cabins. But, for some reason they decided to paint everything black in the cruising floor. The result is that the entire maze is very dark now and you can hardly make out faces or body features. The walls used to be off-white and the minimal lighting was just enough to impart a warm glow and you could see faces, six packs, bulges, etc. Underwear nights are Mon, Tue, Wed and Sat. Naked nights (well attended) are Thu and Sun (you have to be naked when you are in the maze, but you get a large towel to wear in all the other areas and guys tend to keep hands over packages inside, so not that naked). Fri is small towel night. Entry fee depends on day and time. It seems to be B$180 on weekday nights, B$160 on weekend nights, B$200 on holidays. After midnight on weekends it's B$120. During the week it's supposedly open 3pm-2am, but they close earlier, despite the tiems posted on the sign outside, so take that into consideration if arriving late. Weekend nights it's open till 6am. Pros: the two nice, large outdoor garden areas (they need to burn some mosquito coils there); good steam room; good workout room. Cons: rudely aggressive peepers in the cabin areas; they need to burn some mosquito coils in the garden areas; lack of cleanliness, especially in the maze and cabins with used tissue papers, condoms, and fluids on floors (wear flip-flops); the maze often smells; on naked nights they lock two exit doors out of the maze/cabin area, but if there were an emergency, the locked doors would be a hazard." -- James, Dec 24, 2012
PHAHONYOTHIN -- Samsen, Victory Monument, Phahonyothin, Phayathai, Saphan Kwai, Chatuchak
39 Underground UTOPIAN VERIFIED FEB 2013
1511/39 Phaholyothin Rd, Soi Phaholyothin Theater (opposite Paolo Memorial Hospital, close to the Saphan Kwai Sky Train Station), Utopia Map, 02-279-1511, email. From the Saphan Kwai Sky Train Station, take Exit 1 and walk towards Pradiphat Rd, then take the 2nd lane on the right after AMB bank (less then 3 minutes). You will see the big sign for 39 Underground at the end of this small short lane. G/F has lockers, steam, sauna; 2/F has TV and a tiny gym area; 3/F dark rooms, 4/F roof top cruising area (most are not shy there). Theme nights. Cheap admission and popular with the local Thai crowd.
Comments from Utopians:
"I have just been to 39 Underground sauna yesterday and was quite impressed. The majority are Thai locals but nearly all are very sociable. Staff are friendly, with service minds. Naked nights are Tue, Sat and Sun, and staff strictly controls that no one would wear anything including the towel on these naked nights from 2/F upwards. Exciting rooftop with abundant greenery allows sunlight to get through everyone's naked body. Lots of hot guys on Sun. A few snacks are supplied for free in the bar on 2/F to gear you up." -- petelek, Feb 4, 2013

Comments from Utopians:
"If you want to meet local guys, Chakran is for you. The place is mixed, but with many hot, muscular young men. The guys here are what you call 'sticky rice' - they stick only to Asians. If you are not Asian, you are sort of odd thumb here, but I did see a couple of non-Asians trying their luck. Best time to go is after dinner (especially Fri and Sat). The place is sort of deserted before that.
It is actually well maintained. I like the 'waterfall' plants that set the ambience of the place. There are a lot of private rooms,
where lights can be dimmed or brightened. There is, however, loud music and no dark maze. There's a large jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, pool, restaurant, and gym if you don't want to go straight to the action. I also like that the showers and toilets are plentiful and located in different areas. You pay B$350 for entrance on Fri and weekends, and I think it is cheaper on weekdays. They give you one
towel and a locker key with a wrist band. Keep your locker key on your wrist always, even when showering or having fun, so as
not to lose it. They provide two condoms and lube sachets inside your locker. You can get more at reception. It is easy to reach and find. Take the BTS Sky Train to Ari. Check the directions in their website. It is easy to follow and around 10 minutes walk in a safe neighborhood." -- kimchiseoul, Nov 4, 2013
"I visited Chakran recently. This sauna has good facilities and nice crowd. It is definitely worth a visit. I still find Babylon superior, except for the naked events that Babylon misses out on. But there I give an edge to Sauna Mania, whose naked events I find more exciting. Chakran's 'Naked Zone' is too small, limited to a small, dark steam room. They should include the upper floor or make the whole place a naked zone. Also, Chakran's foam party is disappointing - just a big jacuzzi with some foam in it and some guys acting shy. A real foam party should happen on a floor and not in a pool with hot water. The best are the 'foam showers', a la Kakiku in KL. Overall, I think Chakran deserves a good 3rd place behind Babylon and Sauna Mania." -- steven_g, Oct 10, 2013
"We Singaporeans, on holiday for Songkran 2013, went to Chakran one night. Still a nice place, fairly clean. One problem was most of the rooms were not aircon. Nice pool, but nobody was using it. The place is overall small, but OK still. It's kind of gym or fitness club atmosphere. Guys are upper 20s and average looking and shape." -- Hongkuan, Apr 26, 2013
"We went to Chakran on a Mon afternoon - not the best time to visit, of course, but it started to get a bit busy around 5pm. Beautifully designed and a good change from Babylon, though it's looking a little shabby and could do with a thorough clean. Only complaint is the staff - they were very uninterested in helping and mostly glued to their iPhones. Only the woman at the entrance was at all friendly. A shame, because with just a little effort this sauna could really rival Babylon." -- Richard, Mar 21, 2013
- Cruising Sauna I
1448/6-7 Phahonyothin Rd (opposite Major Cineplex Ratchayothin), Utopia Map, 02-930-3538. First branch of this local neighborhood sauna.
Farose UTOPIAN VERIFIED APR 2013
108/3 Pradipat 19, Saphan Kwai, Utopia Map, 02-618-4505. From Saphan Khwai BTS station, walk towards Pradipat Rd parallel to the Sky Train track, and turn right into Pradipat Rd (about a 15 min walk). Pass the Liberty Garden Hotel and look for Soi 19 to your right. Walk some 50m until you see the Farose sauna sign on the left side of the lane. Turn right into a housing estate, follow the road turning to your left and you'll find the house number on a multi-storey gray wall with an impressive doorway. There are five levels in two wings in this huge complex, with the most happening in the right wing (go to the rooftop for access or to the door at the back end of the locker room). Sauna and steam, dark room, video, snacks. Mostly young Thai crowd, a few mature men, a few foreigners. Open until 6am daily.
Comments from Utopians:
"I went to Farose on the 2nd night of Songkran with my Singapore friends. It's an old place, but kind of interesting. It looks like an old boarding house upstairs with small rooms. Not so clean. Beds are not really beds, but something like a circle shape sofa piece and only about 1m circle, so too small to lay all your body on. The garden roof is good and they served some Thai food up there. There were two karaoke rooms, one up on the roof and another on 1/F which was very large. There's a video room with a wall you can stand behind and watch the video through a slit and play around with the guy next to you if you like. Shower on 1/F is quite small and also not so clean. Really huge fish tank was impressive. The guys were mostly older and I think only Thai, with the only foreigners being me and my Singapore friends. Some young guys came in but they wore their clothes and hung out socializing with each other and didn't do anything." -- Hongkuan, Apr 26, 2013
GG (Grey Gymnastics Men's Cub) UTOPIAN VERIFIED APR 2013
1155/1 Soi Ronachai 2 (small soi opposite Sam Sen Railway Station), Phayathai, Utopia Map, 02-279-3807. Take a cab to Samsen Railway Station. Get to the side of the tracks where there are restaurants along a green residential neighborhood. Across from the station and past the Railway Restaurant is Soi Ronnachai 2 (before Platform One restaurant). Walk in about 50m and you'll come to a junction. GG sauna is exactly at the junction. Look for a pink fence with 'GG' on it. It is a two storey detached house with pink pillars, converted into a sauna complex. Sauna, steam, karaoke, snacks. This is the place if you fancy more mature men or pandas (Asian chubs)! Popular local scene - definitely off the tourist path. The karaoke room is a major draw. Parking space in front.
The Beach UTOPIAN VERIFIED JUN 2013
316 Soi Panit Anant, Sukhumvit 71 (turn right at the pet clinic), Utopia Map, 02-392-4783. Sauna, steam, swimming pool, restaurant, karaoke and cruise nooks. Local crowd and foreigners in-the-know. This is a casual, unpretentious club. Open until 6am.
Comments from Utopians:
"Still open (or newly reopened). I went there yesterday and had fun. Crowd mostly 25 and up. Mostly locals. B$99, open at 3 pm." -- Kaidon, Jun 16, 2013
Sukhumvit Soi 48, Prakhanong, 02-391-9317, 081-510-8572. Soi 48 is between the Prakanong and Onut BTS stations. Walk down Soi 48 to an industrial building with the letters BNPC on it, turn right past the guard hut, left at next soi and then right; it's on the right corner with good signage. If you take a "motorsai" tell them to take the bridge (bai saphan) because you must cross over to the other side of the klong via the inbound side of Sukhumvit. Sauna is in two 6-story shop houses. This venue is cheap and clean, but not crowded and almost entirely Thai. Downside is the six flights to climb up and down, plus no air con! But for a very Thai-Thai gay experience, it's fun and easy to reach. Facilities include private rooms, clean steam and sauna rooms (up top), plus karaoke and free beverages (Coke, water and ice). Massage also available but only a couple of masseurs. Inexpensive entry. Open daily from 2pm-midnight.
EDOK (Erotic Divine Oops Kinky)
Soi LG (near Soi Taksin 14), Taksin Rd, Thonburi, Utopia Map, 02-466-0707, 086-006-5565. In the same no-name, dead-end soi as Shape Massage and Spa (between Soi 14 and Soi 14/1). There is a footbridge (the 2nd one along Thaksin Rd after turning left from Thonburi Rd/Thaksin Bridge Rd) at the entrance to the soi and an LG shop on the corner. EDOK is on the left past LG.

Paradise Sauna UTOPIAN VERIFIED FEB 2013
Bang Khen, 02-953-4039, 086-994-3943.
Comments from Utopians:
"I usually go to Paradise Sauna during weekends. The place is a large terrace house in a housing estate near a local market. Next to the lobby is a karaoke room, which will turn to a foam party room with hot coyote boy dance show on a special Sat of the month. At the back (behind the staircase in the middle) is a dining area, which serves soft drinks, whiskey, and herbal drinks, while on special Sat ngihts (at higher entry fee) they serve a meal with rice and at least two dishes in a buffet style. Beyond that at the very back are a sauna room, steam room, jacuzzi, and video room. 2/F is equipped with gym room, dim maze, cubicles, video rooms, and a massage room (at affordable price). 3/F is a rooftop with large plants serving as curtains dividing into many rooms. The place used to set themes for each night, like nude night, towel night, or underwear night, but now the only theme left is 'underwear night' for every night." -- petelek, Feb 4, 2013
