The next best thing to being in Turkey right now, and one of the best massage parlours in Sydney, is Ottoman Turkish Bath & Day Spa.

Sorry fellas, the one massage package on offer here is only available to women- it targets the piling up of dead skin cells that block your skin’s pores, increasing the skin’s toxins which increases the signs of ageing. Followed by a bubble bath, you’ll come out looking and feeling ten times younger.
