After a whole night of dancing, go have a thai massage to "release" those tired muscles.. Some places like hotels, have late night massage service/parlour.
But be prepared, thai massage is not like those massage which they press and rub your muscles. Thai massage is more "action" hehe..I can tell you I had a hard time to "relax my mind" wondering what they will do next..hehe.. :p But in the end of the session, off course, ahh..my whole muscle tension is relieve.. :)
There are so many things you can do at night in Bangkok.
You could visit the night bazaars along the streets, go shopping in the Siam Square area or go to the bars at Patpong, but my favourite activity is to go for a foot massage.
This particular massage place is next to the NOVOTEL HOTEL. There is a whole row of massage places but this one has the nicest decor and ambience.
With pine coloured wood flooring, soft creme coloured walls and muted lighting, the massage palour looks more like an inviting spa than the usual harshly lit or dimly lit seedy looking places.
It had comfortable rattan chairs and leg rests, and each chair came with 2 cushions to prop your back/ head.
They even gave us a shawl to keep us cosy and tucked in as we sank into the armchairs for our foot massages.
The muted lighting and the soft music lulled me to sleep as i had my foot massaged.
Definitely the place to go for a massage given that all the shops were priced the same at 300 Baht for an hour.
Dress Code: Best to wear shorts or skirts when you go for a massage.
They will massage the calves too and the knees, so you might have to roll up your pants or jeans.
foot massage, thai massage, foot massage... seriously speaking I am not much a person for crazy nights out, so I opted for massages instead. All over the city there are several massage parlours, some are even of the respectable kind (in this case you can normally see the massage area from the street). Average prices (july 2002) are 200 baht for foot massage and 150 baht for thai massage. As a general note I must add that thai massage did not impress me much - it was nice to try once - but generally speaking I prefer more traditional forms of massage.
Dress Code: no clothes required
