How it works:
- Opening: touts posing as massage shop managers out the streets will offer you a special price. They claim this is because business has not been good recently.
- Set-up: they bring you to a shop, then ask for payment as they have to return to the streets to get customers. Next, you enter the shop, only to be told that they are not related to the tout.
Places to beware:
- Bangkok: Sukhumvit
What to do:
- Only pay in the shop after the service is provided.
- Go to a reputable shop or use day tour platforms like Klook (60+ spa and massage options).
