The last time I was in Bangkok I did it. I paid a lot of money. I snuck out of my hotel, went alone and didn't tell anyone where I was going.
I went to the Espa Spa at the Peninsula Hotel for a Thai massage and relaxation room.
It was overly indulgent and magical at the same time. It was relaxing and exhilirating at the same time.
'My true friends will understand why I don't really feel all that guilty. They would have and probably have done the same.
In retrospect, it was worth every last baht.
