China’s “Comfort Class” | The Bling Dynasty, National Geographic Magazine: Shanghai Orient Holiday Hotel | Spa | Shanghai, China

This is an over the top spa, massage parlor, and hotel in the Suzhou Creek area of Shanghai. Guys walk from the men’s locker room through an aquarium tunnel filled with endangered species to the bath area. From there they can turn left and play ping pong or watch a movie with their family in their bathrobes, or they can turn right and meet their mistresses in a discreet room. The day I photographed there were many Yakuza Japanese men for some reason.
