Chiang Mai has a more modest nightlife offering than Bangkok. It's still possible to get a full body to body massage in pleasant surroundings, but nowhere is there a place of the same standard as Bangkok's Ratchadapisek / Huay Kwang area. Sayuri & Ping Phayom are the best available soapy massage parlours in Chiang Mai - but variety is the spice of life, and sometimes good things happen in lesser places! The Chiang Mai massage girls are another matter - a naked body slide massage with a Chiang Mai lady is an experience to remember!
Aside from the various soapy massage parlors scattered across the city, there are also clusters of beer bars, karaoke bars, and 3 well-known go-go bars catering to falang clients: Spotlight, Star Six and Foxy Lady.
The Loi Kroh Road beer bars are the most lively in town, starting with the cluster of bars on the corner of Loi Kroh and Kotchasarn Roads. Chiang Mai Entertainment Centre, further down Loi Kroh Rd, has 20+ beer bars and is beside the Star Six Go-go bar - only 150 metres away from the Central Duangtawan Hotel.
