Turkish Hamam

Hamams are open from as early as 6 a.m. till somewhere around midnight
The masseur and scrubber will be of the same sex as you are
Standard soap is used. If you have sensitive skin or are allergic to some products, bring your own soap
You need to wash your private parts yourself
You’ll get drenched, so women may want to get rid of their make-up first. Also, don’t forget to bring the necessary toiletries.
Women may want to bring dry underwear along too
There is no way you can avoid tipping the attendant(s), so make sure you have some cash money on you. You normally tip 10 to 20% of the total amount
If you care about your (new) tan, maybe visit a hamam at the beginning of your city trip or holiday
