“Thamel Health Centres”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

Thamel is very busy, especially as I was there during a festival. The pollution is terrible, so you may want to wear a mask. I suggest only a day or two in Thamel. Women: be careful getting a massage, I was massaged by a man and it was obvious he had no massage training or skills and he tried to massage parts of my body that i have never had anyone try to massage before....and then he asked me for sex!! I think although it stated massage, it was a brothel. Beware!!

“Good place for food, beer & souvenirs”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

A chaotic mismash of streets festooned with shops, bars & resataurants.
Frenzied but retianed a sense of charm.
Note..things tend to close up at around 10-11pm in the evening and take a torch with you!
