    Hi, can anyone tell me if Shanghai Hotel Leisure Sauna Club 上宾汤田国际会所 (or any massage parlour/place for that matter) is cash only? Do they accept visa/mastercard too? How about foreign currencies? I just want to be as prepared ahead of time as possible.

    I’m also guessing it’s best to travel light when visiting these places. Like leave the wallet and phone at the hotel and just bring the payment?

      You can use the credit card there but they do not accept foreign cash. BTW, you suggestion is nice. It’s a brilliant way to leave your wallet and phone at your hotel.
