I am planning to start reviewing hammams and other traditional ways of bathing in the next few weeks. What I aim to do is to find the best and most authentic experiences so that women travelling can go to an establishment be it Budapest or Marrakech, London or Istanbul and know that the place isn’t a pick up joint, or something sleazy but a decent place to relax and participate. I’m just an ordinary woman who wants to enjoy these experiences in safe and respectable surroundings and to embrace the tradition that has been in existence for hundreds of years.
I think what would be interesting is to find out what is actually available in the United Kingdom itself as there are many visitors who wish to experience a Turkish bath, hammam or sauna and there must be good places to go. This is also something that a lot of British people do not do so the whole experience will be a fascinating one.
Wish me luck on my journey- and if you have any suggestions of places to visit I would appreciate the information.
