“No gay man can leave Bangkok without visiting Babylon”, someone once declared. This is not an overstatement considering what Babylon has to offer. Sauna and steam room, dark area (to play hide and seek), restaurant, coffee shop, pool, weights room, barber shop, Internet and reading lounge, bars, and ‘Barracks’ are all slapped together into one very well-designed and trendy venue. Extremely popular among Thais, expats and visitors, so expect some congestion on weekends. Admission is 220 baht during the week and 250 baht on weekends and holidays. Regular events are hosted on different days of the week, so check the do check before you go.
Babylon’s main competition, Chakran is known for its luxurious interior and well-equipped multi-story sauna complex with indoor pool, jacuzzi, spa and steam room, gym, mini theatre, café, cruising corridors, karaoke areas and other facilities. Particularly popular with Thais and Asian tourists. Admission is 230 baht Monday to Thursday, 250 baht Friday to Sunday.Sauna Mania

Familiar to Babylon and Chakran but seems to attract mostly after-office locals. Trendy decoration with two rooftop terraces where you can lay underneath the stars. Now open until six in the morning on Saturdays, addicts can go somewhere else and then re-enter (30 baht fee applies).
