What / Why :

Hat Yai is full of cheap massage shops (both independent and those located within hotels), and if you get the right girl it can be a very enjoyable experience for not a lot of money. The price for a two-hour traditional Thai massage runs between Bt200 and Bt300 plus a tip for the girl.
If you visit Hat Yai massage shops regularly, you soon establish a network of girls who do a good job. However, if you are a first-time visitor, choosing the right girl can be a bit of a gamble. There is a way to remove any risk of getting a poor massage.

In recent years the number of spas in Hat Yai has grown steadily. They are a little more expensive than the many cheap places around town but generally they offer a much more rewarding experience.

The girls working in such places are normally better trained and the whole atmosphere is lot more pleasant. In many of the cheap places, I have chosen girls who are more interested in watching TV and talking on their mobile phones than making sure you enjoy your massage.

They insist on adjusting the air conditioning so the room is like a fridge and they sulk if you ask them to turn off the TV.

In the spas there are no TVs in the massage rooms and the girls do not get constantly interrupted with phone calls. They massage you slowly and gently instead of acting as if they are trying to bring a corpse back to life. You get a choice of aromatherapy oils, and they play relaxing music.

It's a case of getting what you pay for. Of all the Hat Yai spas I have tried, I like Preuksa Spa the best. The girls working there are real sweethearts, the rooms are comfortable, and it is probably the cheapest spa in town.

Toy runs the shop now but Max and Yoyo have both moved on since I took these photos.
