The highlight of our next day in Bangkok was a visit to Babylon, the famous bath house in Bangkok which is a gay paradise for many travelers. Babylon is more than a bath house, it is a gay resort that offers bed and breakfast, massage, a large pool, a fully-equipped fitness gym and all the fun and dark places a bath house offer. Entrance to Babylon is 260 Baht (about Php312)
Despite of the clear sign “No sex or hand jobs” for the massage service , we tried their Thai massage (300 Baht/ Php360) and were surprised with the high level of skills our masseurs have shown us. It was for me the best Thai massage I have ever experienced. It was so good that we couldn’t think about sex at all!
The food inside the restaurant is very decent and affordable and the interiors of the dining area were done in good taste. Inside the multi-level gay establishment, it is very exciting to get lost in its mazes and dark alleys, pockets of steam rooms and saunas, hidden pools and showers as one witness groups of men having unashamed sexual fun with each other.
For me, compared to all the bath houses in Manila and most of the bath houses in Hongkong, nothing beats Babylon.
A word of caution though, if you are like me with a very limited taste for men (I only go for the Filipino and the Mediterranean male beauty), Babylon is not exactly for you. In this place, the white man is supreme and all the other Asians chase after them, which is just too bad for me.
