I started reviewing oily massage parlors in the city years ago yet I have only just started to scratch the surface of that expansive sector.

It was once one of the biggest brothels in all of Bangkok - a six-storey pleasure palace where dozens of girls worked every night entertaining hundreds of clients who described it as 'pure hedonism'. Dubbed Ocean Massage, the building included a nightclub, a coffee shop, an outdoor pool, gym, sauna and more than a hundred rooms with double beds, hot tubs and baths for girls to entertain visitors. But the huge venue was abandoned last month after police raided the parlour next door in the midst of a crackdown on the sex trade in Thailandand the owners of Ocean Massage feared they would be targeted next.

Ocean Massage used to be one of the biggest brothels in Bangkok but now sits abandoned after the owners fled. Inside the six-storey pleasure palace were more than rooms where guests could be entertained. The occupants departed so quickly that towels were still left on some of the beds. Guests once described the venue as 'pure hedonism', but the filmmaker who captured these images said it started going downhill a year ago after the former owners sold out.

Thai authorities have been cracking down on huge sex venues as the country tries to shift its image as the sex capital of the world. Shortly before this place was abandoned, a venue next door was raided by police. Makeup, a bottle of talcum powder and oil sits in one of the rooms after being left behind by one of the girls who worked here. The majority of the bedrooms include hot tubs or baths where the women were able to entertain their clients for the night.

They fled in such a hurry that baby oil, talcum powder, make-up and perfume have been on shelves while dressing gowns and towels are still on some of the beds. Footage from Lord palace bangkok the abandoned building shows a large spiral staircase leading up to the private rooms - each decorated with huge posters of women in Lord palace bangkok.

A large Japanese tree decorates a staircase while flowers are still laid out next to a jacuzzi in the gym and among the bedrooms ly used by young prostitutes. The vast building - a labyrinth of VIP rooms for different services - even includes a covered car-park below rows of rooms. The sheer size of the complex gives an insight into how busy the venue once was - recently rebranding from Colonze 2 to Ocean Massage - with many similar outlets earning hundreds of thousands of pounds a week. An outdoor pool was just one of the attractions of Ocean Massage, which also featured a nightclub and coffee shop.

A piano gives a sense of how the venue operated before it was left to rot away after the owners decided to cut their losses. Some parts of the building were abandoned after the venue swapped hands a few years ago because of the sheer cost of maintaining it.

Here, a poster with the old name of the venue - Colonze 2 - is seen in a disused part. After the owners left they also seem to have forgotten to lock the doors behind them, allowing a filmmaker to sneak inside and capture these shots of the former sex palace.

A gym and sauna featured on one of the floors before the building was abandoned. Now the only visitors are salvage workers, taking whatever they can of value from the structure.

But over the last year, the multi-storey massage parlours have been targeted by the Thai government which is desperate to transform the country's seedy image as the sex capital of the world. The filmmaker, who wished to remain anonymous, said: 'This place used to be one of the big 'entertainment venues' in the area.

Dozens and dozens girls working every night, walking around in the building in bikinis. Pool parties, bands, alcohol. A snooker table. You can see from the pictures some of the rooms had gone to rack and ruin. The people running it decided to cut their losses and leave. The sex industry's days are ed, certainly in terms of how it once was and for these kind of ostentatious places. Multi-storey massage parlours like this one have been accused of illegally hiring minors and migrant workers, amid allegations of huge bribes being passed to local police.
