Red House Girls Club - Huge Girls Selection, Near City Center

Shanghai Sauna Club with Sexy Girls

The Red House Girls Club is famous for their fantastic selection of beauties!

They have normal girls for 698 RMB (with our VIP discount) and also really stunning girls (they call them models) for 998 RMB! They have more than 80 different rooms, also theme rooms and the service is available as a dry session with 70 minutes or for all the "Nuru Massage Lovers" in Shanghai, you can extend for 100 RMB more to a 90 minutes session including Nuru. Red House Girls Club

No. 45 Mansion Sauna - High Class, Huge Stunner Selection

We are very sure, that the No. 45 Mansion Sauna will be the upcoming place for all guys who are looking for a great selection of top girls (but also willing to spend more to get more). Their "lowest girls level" will be charged with RMB 998, their hot Top Models with RMB 2298 already, but for that you can daily pick out your girl from a pool of at least 70 pretty girls, which mostly in other saunas would already be the top selection. The sauna got their "boost" after the famous Ming Hui sauna closed and many of their top girls moved over to the No. 45! They are located in Puxi, at the east area of Min Hang district, not far away from Hong Qiao airport, but also not a long trip from Puxi city center to there. Check out the girls gallery, rates and so on here.

VIP discount of 200 RMB for our VIP members!

Caesars Palace - Best Environment & Most Gorgeous Models!

Update Note (December 2016): 

After nearly 6 month where they refused Caucasian customers (because of some problems with a "big dick owner" who seriously injured a girl) they changed their policy back to normal. 

So from now on it should also be no problem for a foreigner to party there, so go on and check out the place where all girls are tall and a decent C-Cup is the minimum they need to show ;-)

Caesars Palace is a sauna club opened in March 2016. It is located near Yan An Road between Jing An Temple and the Hong Qiao Airport, so not far away from the Puxi city center (less than 25 RMB for a taxi in nighttime from Jing An Temple). They have a brand new decoration in classic Italian design. Over all the most exclusive sauna environment in Shanghai!

And for all the guys who are looking for the really stunning top model girls, this is also actually the best place to find them - as long as you can afford their rate. This sauna is not cheap, even with our discount the cheapest girls will be 980 and 1280 (but mostly not many available) while their "average" models will be around 2000 RMB already (but 100 minutes unlimited shot service) up to the supermodels for nearly 4000 RMB for one hour. But their girls quality is outstanding compared with all other saunas!

Editors warning (March 2016): Because of the different legal system of China and several overseas countries there is a big risk to get in serious trouble with the sauna service here in Shanghai. 

Prostitution is forbidden in China and here it is no difference, if the girl is 26 or 16 or even 15 years old, all is illegal prostitution, so that means in many sauna clubs you find underage girls working, mostly start with 16, sometimes with 15. Keep away from underground sauna clubs with even younger girls, here also in China you will be at least 2 years in jail in case of a raid!

We long time tried to avoid listing any sauna who provided a girl younger than 18, but in between our list would be empty, because no sauna we found without at least one or two girls like that.

But for example in Germany for paid sex with an underage girl 2 years jail is standard - and it doesn`t matter if this happened in China or elswhere, and as far as I know in the US can be even much more!

And to make it clear, some of the pictures sauna manager used to post of their young girls (topless, open legs, sexy uniform) regarding to the law of other countries could be child porn already, but at least illegal material! Make sure you do NOT store any of this critical pictures on any device that you will have with you, when you cross the border to your home country! And another tip! if you have a risk to have a picture stored accidentally while you are here, avoid to synchronize to a cloud. Dropbox, Google and Apple dedect pictures like that automatically send a report to the responsibility law department!

(we keep our picture gallery clean! Here all pictures are 18+, but stuff you got from manager postings should be checked!)

    @"New to all this":
    this kind of business has been famous in other cities like for example Dong Guan before, where you used the sauna mostly to pick out the girl from the lineup, but had the fun in your hotel room.
    In Shanghai I not found any sauna who offer that, even some (but not a lot) are located in a hotel building. But even than you will normally not be able to "take her to your room".
    But we are in China, so everything is possible if you can speak Chinese and you are willing to pay extra - but I guess this would not be a "cheap deal" at all.
    When you saw "pretty girls hanging around" somewhere in a hotel, than most probably they have been from a KTV.
    Many hotels also have a KTV Club included and there you also can take out the girls to your room. But the "downside" here is, that the club will expect you to "hold a party" in their club first, before you would be able to take out a girl. And a KTV party is a "fucking bad deal", if you are alone. For a group of 4 or more guys it`s a great fun, but because several costs which could be shared (like room, mamasan, minimum spending, DJ and waiter fee) are totally overpriced for only one guy (never less than 2000 or 3000 without limit to the top). And that KTV costs not include the girls fee, which will come on top. So over all not a reasonable deal for get some fun in the room - except you have enough friends or colleagues with the same target ;-)

    Enjoy Shanghai,

    Are there any hotel/sauna combos where you stay at the hotel and they have a safe sauna there also - or you can choose a girl from that sauna to come back to your room? I saw something that looked like a sauna in a hotel.

    First I am very sorry for your experience. That did not happen often and till now I could not find out what has been the reason why your case got "lost". As I already informed you by e-mail, for sure we will refund your payment as soon as you give us your account information.

    Normally I try to keep the comment areas useful, so that means I remove outdated or not useful postings regular, but it is no problem to keep your one online if you like. But you need to do me a favor in return! Next time, when you are not happy with a restaurant, please write a paper like "don`t eat that food, it tastes awful" and ask the manager if you can stick it on their door.... lol... I would love to see his reaction....

    On the other side your case is a proof, that my "theory of balance" really works. As far as I know you are the only one who ever had that issue, but same time you are the only one who ever wrote a e-mail like that to my account (and I am doing business for 25 years already, but you are still "unique".
    I never have been faced to anyone who thought that " Steve you can fuck yourself!" is an helpful style for business communication, so while I would feel very guilty for the inconvenience for all others who would have been faced to your problem, I feel it`s totally great that it happens to the only one where I do not have any reason to feel guilty at all. So finally the life is balanced and fair to all of us.

    And just a little hint. You paid with phone recharging, right? So you probably know that this phone will be used (why we should let you recharge a number that is not in use). Wouldn`t it be an idea to call that number to solve your problem - which is by the way our hotline and I am sure they would have been able to find a solution very easy.
    Perhaps that would have been a more useful way to solve your problem. For sure much more useful than your posting here and your very polite and "fucking friendly" e-mail ;-)

    Luckily the visitors of our page have both. A more developed "problem-solving-competence" and a more polite communication style, so that I never have been faced to a case like that before. So regarding to your request, I can keep your comment online and I hope, it will have some "entertainment effect".

    Have a good time,


    Have a good time,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Monday, 12 September 2016 23:33)

    We more and more have cases, where guys went over to a sauna, but finally failed to get access, so I think it`s time for an update about that.
    From my experience, it is actually not a good idea to go to a sauna without get in touch with a manager there forehand to make sure you will get access!
    First most sauna clubs this days removed every hint to their business, so different to past times, you will mostly not find out where they are, even you are on the right building.
    Second, many clubs will not even open the door for you, if you not have an appointment,
    Before they often had a policy, that visitors who have an appointment with one of their sales managers would get a discount, while all others without would have to pay 100 or 200 more (that`s also where our discount voucher based on).
    But now most clubs prefer already to make sure, that all guys who come over will be repeating clients or at least clients one of their sales guys is in touch with, so now you will not get access and "overpay" a little bit, often you will not get access. Could be you not even found the entry, could be you got told there is no sauna or they are closed now or what ever, so it`s actually never a mistake to contact them before you go over.
    And additional that also will make sure you waste your time, if they are really temporarily closed. I had cases already where I was in taxi with clients to drive over after got confirmation they are in business, but on the way I got informed, that they will need to close immediately. So the contact will be able to save your time and reduce the risk for a useless round trip.

    Have fun,

    Hi Steven,
    Thank you for all the information on your website. I am thinking of going to Dongguan spa since I don't speak Chinese. Which spa do you recommend the most for a non-Chinese speaking foreigner? I speak English and I am interested in tall, naturally busty girl (car model type). Willing to spend up to 2500rmb.
    I am traveling to Shanghai soon, will be staying close to j w Marriott in Shanghai.

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 28 July 2016 06:13)


    it`s not a "weather issue" any more, I would call it more a "general climate change". That means it changed step by step over a long time and there is no hint that they would change it back.
    Nearly all sauna clubs now will only let people in, who had announced their arrive. In fact it`s not a big deal, because a call - or if you don`t speak English a wechat message to the manager is enought. Than the stuff at the entry will ask you who you are looking for, and if this guy/girl told them one of her client will come soon, they will let you in, if not they mostly pretend there is nothing inside. In times of mobile phones in every pocket, Wechat (Weixin) here installed on every mobile phone, that is not a problem at all, but gives a little bit more safety feeling. For sure the police will also enter without reservation, but in fact they are mostly scared about journalists and in worst case with hidden cameras (by the way the reason why they have metal detectors in use ;-) And also the reason why many saunas not not allow you to take your phone or not even a watch inside...
    3 years ago the "redlight scene" in Dongguan - which was called the Las Vegas of China with areas only with sauna, KTVs and massage has been "blown away" with this strategy.
    CCTV broadcasted a feature about prostitution in Dongguan with a lot of hidden shooted material, than here was a big shitstorm comming up about this "Sodom and Gomorrah" and coincidentally ;-)) there was a special police unit under the Beijing command nearby... lol... so Sunday evening the report was on air and Monday morning 5000 not local police guys started to raid the city and in 24 hours around 500.000 people left Dongguan - mostly girls by the way - and since this time there is nearly nothing going on any more.
    And there was a "hint" that there are people who plan something like that for Shanghai too coming up beginning of last year and so the saunas got more carefully already. But it got more crazy after they caught a "new customer" with a professional hidden camera system in one sauna club in Minhang last autumn.
    So from my view this "announcement" is mostly to get clear who enter the sauna, and if he is knew and now one met him before - than they will be prepared and keep a special "eye" on him.

    The only pity for that is the fact, that Wechat actually seems to "fight against prostitution" on their system and from hundreds of manager I have on my wechat, there will be less than 10% who not changed their contact at least one time the last weeks. I had days where I got more than 50 messages about new accounts they use The old one always has been blocked... it still work to post and chat normally, but they can not use it to get new clients, because a blocked account an not be found or added any more.

    So better doublecheck our page if there is a new contact ID, if you plan to go there. All others will work smooth, even without Chinese, because the Wechat internal translation is good enough already, so that the sauna manager can understand what you want and you will be able to get their Chinese answer translated too.

    Have fun,

Also, do the sauna clubs accept US dollars? I know it's about a 30 minute drive from the airport to Ceasar's but do you know how much that'll cost me? I'm trying to get my ducks I mean "bucks" in a row. Thank you in advance!

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 18 March 2016 23:35)

    @Flavor flav:
    windy is not what would describe the actual situation. It`s more like the general whether got more windy.
    Wechat for example closed many sauna or prostitution related accounts, normally recognized on their postings, that`s reason why now many of this managers delete their timeline.
    Some important "heads" in the local government have been changed, so that the network structure got some changes too, so some needed to close because of that, others got a chance to keep open or to open new.
    But over all the business went another level down in the underground and mostly done and promoted a little bit less "visible" than before. For example while some sauna clubs in the past charge a little bit higher for guys without appointment, they now refuse this guys to enter the sauna, just hoping that the undercover journalist (which is actually the worst case) has a little bit less chance to enter the club. On the other side they need clients, so they can never reduce this risk to "0" without close.
    The journalist is so dangerous, because with this "strategy" the central government in Beijing blow away the Dong Guan Redlight paradise. Journalists with hidden cameras got the proof, than a 30 min TV feature informed whole Chine about the "dirty things" going on over there and 24 hours later the police show up to "clean" the city. Since that in Dongguan is nearly nothing any more.
    So from my point of view nothing that will change back to normal soon er even anytime, that seems to be the new "normal" level.
    So still everything everywhere available, only a little bit more harder to find - but for that we are here ;-)

    Have fun as long the party is going on,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 18 March 2016 23:23)

    if ti would be so easy, unfortunately it isn`t. We could solve the red rope issue by asking around 250 saunas all over the city if they provide that service. Finally found less than 5, but it seems red rope has getting so "unpopular" that already one kicked out, because after confirmed with a picture, he realized that what he thought is red rope has nothing to do with real one.
    But at least 2 sauna clubs are verified already with a real true red rope experience.
    But frankly, I have no idea how we can find "Real Nuru"... because all sauna clubs which offer Nuru (and I would say 240 of the 250 we check) are totally sure their service is "Real Nuru". So we probably will get 240 available back. And in fact I never have seen any real nuru massage. I am afraid here is a strange "Mainstream" going on... all suddenly replace red rope by Nuru, all offer "Fake Nuru".
    And Pudong is a little problem of security. Honestly our business here is not without risk. No one can say now how they would finally rate our activity. Like a sauna? Than means 10 to 15 years jail for my section managers and some more for me? So we try to avoid to get the risk caught in a raid. And this risk is in Pudong simply several times higher than in Puxi, so that we have a company rule not to send any guide to Pudong sauna clubs. We will list some more, if we can research them, but we will not check or test any of this spa or sauna clubs. I hope you can understand. But in fact because of that "risk difference", there are also not a lot of sauna clubs in Pudong. Everyone who will open a sauna there now will be forced to a higher risk and the problem to find girls and manager, because everyone know about that, so most guys and girls try to avoid it, if they find a chance to work in Puxi.

    Thank you very much for your suggestion, I am proud to be able to set at least the Red Rope on status "done" already and on the Pudong list we still work. You should see the result online soon.

    Have a good time,

    Unfortunately your time window sucks ;-) All sauna clubs close between midnight and 3 am and not open before noon, so exactly the time you are here they are all closed.
    Beside that, there are 24 hour massage places which offer happy ending massage, some with extra service too, but here you need to negotiate the rate and all depends on the girl, so hard to provide reliable information here.

    Nevertheless, enjoy your stay,

    It's almost only A-girls and above in the saunas nowdays. Red house for example had a huge selection of 5xx, 8xx and 9xx girls before, now only A, M, W and so on. It's not the price that concerns me most, it's the fact that I'm more attracted to the petite next door girl look rather than the tall models with big boobs. It's a trend I know but where did the normal girls go?

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Thursday, 10 December 2015 13:31)

    there could be two reasons why no sauna with your requirement listed here.
    - one is, that this kind of service getting less and less, most new places only offer the straight girls service, not waste time and energy to provide additional service around. Especially the new ones, which we prefer, because many foreigners have problem with to handle the more "shabby" environment and conditions on an old sauna location.
    - second reason could be, that several of this additional services (like for example ear cleaning or peeling) will be charged extra. Due to the fact, that less of 10% of our visitors are able to communicate in Chinese, we avoid to list a sauna, where guys could be "surprised" with a much higher bill, because they did not understand, that the 10 minutes ear cleaning will be charged with nearly the same rate than the whole session they had.

    But I asked my section manager and seems all the new places she researched lately not offer the additional real sauna experience any more.
    It looks like a changing in the concept, same like 3 years ago all offer red rope, now it`s nearly totally gone.
    For me it looks like they copy a lot from each other, because otherwise this fast and nearly totally changes of a service option are not possible in a big city like Shanghai.

    Nevertheless, have fun,

    Hi Steven, appreciate your work on this website.

    Have a question: I have been living in shanghai for 2 years now and 2 years ago when I just came, friends showed me around my first sauna clubs and some of them are still open. In all of these sauna clubs, they have a wide choice and even though the girls might not be models, clubs have decent sauna-pool area where you can go before seeing girl, plus after You are done staff leads you into massage rooms where you can be treated to a body massage/foot massage/ear cleaning or have something to eat for free etc. well, I am sure you are aware of these services:)

    The question is why most of the new sauna clubs and the ones that are top on this page(for example kangding or 45) don't have neither a sauna-pool area nor a massage service, however, I agree that the girls selection is WAY above the sauna clubs that I mentioned above. And are there any clubs nowadays with model type of girls but which have massage-sauna services.

    Cause now We have a dilemma, if We want model girls we go to the places mentioned here, if We want a Full old school service I got used to with my friends we go to our old sauna clubs. We would be happy if we have a place that combines the two.

    Look forward to your response and thanks for this website again.

    unfortunately this "privacy concern" is a typical "foreigner-thing". And the sauna clubs all focused to Chinese and Japanese clients. So even new clubs actually not offer a solution for that. From my view it would not be a big deal to allow guys to keep their clothes and skip the exchange to the "Kung Fu Dresses", but because of any reason they don`t want that. When I guide guys to a sauna, I try to avoid change clothes, just because I am not there for any "session". Sometimes it works, but often they tell me even for that I have to change, the reason for that last time was that they don`t want other guys see me running around there with normal clothes and next time also refuse to change. But that would mean there is a request for that also from other customers, than it is even more weird that they not found a solution for that already. So for me it will keep a secret why it should be a problem, but it is like it is.

    Till now we only found 2 sauna clubs where you can avoid the "public cloth changing". One is Tang Dynasty, the other one is 1066 sauna. Both are owned by the same guy, so seems he is the only one who already start to think about that aspect.
    But unfortunately 1066 had some problems with service I heard, the result is that they went down the hill and now nearly no customers there any more, so they also not find girls for working there. They have been the best for that, because no public waiting or looker room, also even the selection was almost every time a "one man show". But in the actual situation not a good idea to go there currently.

    So Tang Dynasty is the only one I could recommend for your request for now. They offer to change clothes in the waiting room, but you also can refuse that and skip it till you reach the massage room. But here for the girls selection you will be faced with many other guys in rush hour. There is one solution for that too. They have a small room there with a "fishbowl mirror" for a more discreet way of selection, but if they are busy, could be you still need to wait than in a bulk of other clients for a room. So to keep your privacy, better avoid rush hours there.

    Have fun,

    Sorry for delay, I have been a little bit busy recently with prepare some "innovations" that will go online soon ;-)

    Seems you stumbled on a new trend! No one of the girls or managers I know could believe it first, but seems to be like you have assumed. They really start with girls now - especially in some smaller sauna clubs - who will offer uncovered sex!
    That is something that not exist except some "underground" places before.
    We only can explain that with the fierce competition between the sauna clubs, and because now more and more big places get successful with a huge selection, the "smaller" clubs need to find new USPs. Some already specialized on Anal or underage girls, but your contact was the first one I found with uncovered sex yet.

    I can not guarantee, that they also will offer that for foreigners, because we only checked it by contact the manager and no one of us tried it yet or plan to have uncovered sex with a girl who serve another 3 to 8 guys a day uncovered. From my view for that we need to wait till someone with a stronger tendency to suicide will try to get the final proof by enjoy the service.

    But even the manager in the request denied that, I still have the doubt that finally the service will not be available for foreigners, because base of the Chinese "Anti-Aids Campaign" is, that in China nearly no one has Aids and all foreigners for sure run around in here to scatter all kinds of sexual diseases ;-)

    Thank you very much for share your information with us and help us to be up to date here (Feel free to drop me an e-mail to "" for a free membership or membership extension, if you like ;-))

    Enjoy Shanghai,

    Are there any saunas that are more 'private'? For example, you don't need to change in a public locker room with creepy male attendants, or for instance you don't need to wait with a bunch of other men to select women in a waiting room?

    First of all for all the guys who not able to read/understand Chinese, here the translation for your Chinese phrase:
    无套内射 (wú tào nèi shè): no jacket shot = uncovered shot
    I would love to see the context of this messages. I never heard about any sauna where you could have a "uncovered" sex session.
    At least not "official". If a sauna would offer that, the other girls would get crazy for that, because they would get scared the girls give disease to customer later would be their customers.
    Sometimes it could happen, that a manager know a girl who would offer uncovered sex for some extra tip and he will have special customers tip him very good to get informed about that, but he would normally not publish something like that on his wechat.
    So perhaps it`s in the context of a blowjob and means uncovered blowjob with come in mouth? Or any other service (beside sex) where this words could make sense?
    I also asked some sauna girls and manager and no one heard about a "uncovered sauna service" in Shanghai till now.
    So if you have some more information about that, please send me a e-mail, perhaps also with the wechat ID of this guys, so that I can research a little bit more detailed. I also get curious what is going on there, at least it sounds weird on the first view.

    Have fun,

    Thanks for the advice Steven! I didn't see your reply until after I ventured out on my own. Nevertheless, I did not tip. Partly because I had a suspicion that it's not how things are done, but mostly because, as you said, all my belongings were in a locker. Just a note to other newbies. Bring enough cash to feed your carnal side. I knew I had plenty for an A-level girl. But as soon as I turned the corner and saw all the beautiful girls in front of me and immediately felt the pull of the one I wanted to be with, I realized I hadn't brought enough money for her level, which was a stupid mistake on my part. Seriously, all the girls are hot and some are absolutely breathtaking. Take your time in your decision. I felt rushed (my fault) and chose someone that wasn't very good and I could have recognized that with a little deep breathing. That said, the whole experience was mind-blowing and I look forward to going back. BTW, this site is awesome!

    the "normal" saunas like all the one we list here are not require any tip for the girls.
    It even can be "un-welcomed" by the management. They spend a lot of effort to train the girls give their best service to all the clients, and they not like girls getting "spoiled" by tips.
    In worst case they would start to expect that and serve worse, if clients not tip them, so it`s not necessary anywhere to do that!
    And second, in most sauna clubs you will leave all your belongings in the looker room, so when you are together with the girl, you simply will not have any money with you, so she really not expect to get any tip.
    Best "tip" for them (which they are looking forward) is a "recall", that means next time you select them BEFORE you get access to the girls selection. This "recalls" are part of their quality rating and bonus system, so girls will get rewarded for more recalls.

    Have fun,

    I know this is a total newbie question, but I am one, so here goes: Do I tip the girl at the sauna after the consummation? That is, post-coitus? You know, the beast with two backs is now one again? Should I give her a little something (a little something more than my little something, ahem) and how much do you recommend O Wise One?

    @bob: (sorry for late reply, just found I forgot to answer)
    Unfortunately there is not really a sauna for foreign girls.
    Several of them have one or two foreign girls from time to time, but never anyone has really a "foreign girls selection", at least nether I nor my sauna section manager till now found any place like that.
    I would recommend to follow the postings of as many sauna manager as possible and wait, till one of them come up with a attractive foreign girl.
    This days I remember I saw a interesting one in Re Hai and also in No. 45 Manison, but not 100% sure about that.

    Have fun on your "hunting",

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Tuesday, 29 September 2015 23:20)

    There is not really a good answer to your question. Unfortunately over the last 5 years ALL sauna clubs replaced the "red rope" by the "nuru massage". We had a research some weeks ago for that topic and we found only 1 (!!!!!) from nearly 180 sauna clubs in our database which still has some (not more than 5) girls who will be able to offer red rope.
    So it`s simply no choice any more, so the question can not be any more, who has the BEST red rope, the question changed to: who is STILL offer red rop.
    We will add this sauna in the next days on our listing, if you are in hurry (and a VIP member), feel free to drop me a line and I can send the address and contact to you in advance.

    Have fun,

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Friday, 28 August 2015 03:37)

    Hi Chris,
    "Which sauna is the best" is probably the question I will get most often here in Shanghai. But there is really no serious way to answer it. There are many criteria which will have an influence on the "quality rating" of a sauna club, and all of us will give different criteria different weight, so for example for me distance is never a point I think about, but 90% of the guys ask me for the best place NEAR their hotel, so for them seems to be an important issue.
    But finally you need to balance all criteria like for example:
    - Distance to your hotel
    - Type of girls they provide
    - Number of girls working there
    - Number of girls in an average selection lineup
    - Quality of girls (depends on personal taste)
    - Range of girls (some have only models, some no models)
    - Personal privacy of the place
    - Security (from police raid view)
    - Quality of the Environment
    - Offered Service Range (for example Nuru, Red Rope)
    - Quality of the average service
    - Quality of the session room (size and so on)
    - Rate of the session
    And this list is only what I just think about, they should be much more criteria. For me actually the Jiang Li sauna is my favorite, because they have a wide range of different type girls and many in selection, so easy for guys I bring there to find one they like. Same reason why I like the Red House, but in Red House the Environment is lower level, so not so luxury... but if the distance is a more important criteria for a guy, but the quality of the Environment is not so important, than Red House is better. If someone think distance is important and he need only model girls, but don`t care about the budget too much, than Kang Ding could be the first choice... so from my view and experience it`s impossible to give a serious recommendation for that to anyone.
    But I have to say, that also based on the selection we offer here. there are many more sauna clubs outside, which sometimes cheaper, much more lousy selection, simply not safe and so on... So the sauna clubs we list are "selected" already, so really bad ones will not be here.
    For example there are clubs where they will bring the girl to your room, than you need to agree or ask for another one.
    Based on the fact, that most of our visitors not speak Chinese, it would be impossible for them to explain the guy, what kind of girl they are looking for, so they will need to accept a type which is far away from their personal taste. So we not list any place without a stage or fishbowl selection here, even there are several clubs like that everywhere around.

    So you need to study the different sauna clubs and pick out the one that seems to match best to your requirement. We offer a lot of information including the view of others in the comments, so we provide all you need to make your choice, but there is no one who finally can do the choice for you.

    Have fun,

    What sauna is your favourite

  • #174

    Shanghai Nightlife Guide (Tuesday, 25 August 2015 23:02)

    check the sauna map, enter your location and you can see exactly how far away to which sauna. It`s very near to Kangding, Dongguan Sauna, Ming Hui and Redhouse. For sure more far away for all the "outside area" saunas like Tang Dynasty or Jiang Li.

    Have a good trip,
