I visited the official Novotel Shanghai spa for a Chinese massage. Half way through the massage session I was touched inappropriately and was offered a happy ending if I was happy to pay a good tip. This is not why I wanted to have a massage. For this very reason I did not go for a massage elsewhere as I believed that as the spa was based in the hotel that it would be reputable.
The fact that I was touched inappropriately and was made the offer for a little extra fun I walked out of the spa session and reported the incident to hotel management. My travel companion in the massage room next door had the same option on the menu and also walked out. The hotel handled the matter very professionally and was not aware that a brothel was being run under their roof.
