Some Malaysian men in their '70s have been flocking to strip clubs in Betong, Thailand, to watch raunchy dances even as early as 3pm, reported Metro Ahad.

Betong is a town in southern Thailand, near the Malaysian border.

Such centres, which have been dubbed “naughty grandfather clubs”, are different from strip clubs in Hatyai or Bangkok as they allow customers to watch at close range and even touch the performers.

Most of such clubs, which offer striptease and pole dancing shows, were found to have up to 30 women performing at the same time.

A 71-year-old, known as Mat, said he went to Betong with his three friends at least twice a month.

Said Mr Mat from Perak: “There is no cover charge. You can just pay 100 Baht (S$4) for a glass of Coke and you can watch the show to your heart’s content.”
