Warnings that it is illegal in Thailand for home owners to rent out their property for a period of less than a month
Link Here
airbnb logo The Phuket Provincial Land Office has issued a formal warning to owners, developers and managers of condominiums that renting out their properties on a daily basis is a breach of the Hotel Act that may incur a fine or even jail time.

Renting condos out for periods of less than 30 days, the prime length of stay for holidaymakers, may bring the owner a fine of up to B20,000 or even up to one year in jail.

The Phuket warning notice read:

To managers/developers of condominiums,

Today, there is a lot of news about condominium developers/owners renting out rooms or buildings that they have ownership of to foreigners or tourists on a daily basis (daily rental) rate that generate income as if they were a hotel (under the Hotel Act 2004).

This type of operation is causes a public nuisance for renters in the same complex and creates unsafe places for tourists, which may lead to loss of life and property. It is inacceptable to operate an illegal hotel. The penalty for this is up to one year in jail or a fine of up to B20,000, or both.

Presumably the same law applies to Pattaya.

Ludicrous advice from the Thai government about watching Euro 2016 safely
Link Here

euro-2016 logo Thailand's Public Health Ministry has ludicrously warned football fans to avoid getting overly excited while watching Euro 2016 lest those heart-stopping moments literally prove fatal.

The minsitry published advice calling on fans to ward off heart attacks by making sure they get enough rest and avoid long binges of football-fuelled excitement. Suwanchai Wattanayingcharoenchai, the deputy permanent secretary for public health, told reporters:

The ministry would like to advise all sport lovers -- teenagers, students, working people and the elderly -- to watch sensibly, Allocate appropriate time for watching and resting.

The ministry urged those with diabetes and heart problems to make sure they continue to take medication. It said those who work hard, even the young, should also take care. Suwanchai continued:

If your bodies are weak, fans should only watch the matches they are interested in or watch replays instead. Do enough rest, exercise, eat healthy foods and avoid alcohol.

Somehow the health and safety minister didn't mention the more pertinent advice of avoiding Russian football thugs.

Police said that during the 2014 World Cup, more than 800 football gambling websites in Thailand were shut down and almost 1,000 people, mostly gamblers, were arrested.

 Updated: Dangerous Thailand...

The whole world watches whilst Thai thugs beat up elderly British woman in Hua Hin

thai thugs beat up a british family in hua hin0.52 video A British couple with their grown up son were violently beaten up by Thai thugs in a crowded street in Hua Hin.

The footage was captured on video and has gone viral around the world. In the UK the Daily Mail went to town with extensive coverage of the disgraceful incident. The Daily Mail described the attack:

CCTV footage captured the extremely violent attack in the popular tourist resort of Hua Hin, where the elderly couple and their middle-aged son were celebrating Thai New Year.

The row appears to escalate from nowhere, as the woman is punched to the ground while the men are being overwhelmed by punches and kicks in the background. As she tries to sit back up, one of the gang kicks her violently in the jaw and knocks her out.

The three holidaymakers were left knocked out cold and lying in the street as their attackers disappear into the crowds of passersby during the Songkran festivities. The victims were hospitalised but the long term injuries were limited to the need for cosmetic dental work.

The police have made arrests but it is not yet clear whether these will result in prosecutions. The incident also made Thai TV news so hopefully there will be some pressure on police to bring the thugs to justice.

There is a long list of news stories building up of British tourists being killed, raped, murdered and beaten up whilst holidaying in Thailand.

Update: Sentenced

9th June 2016. See  article from dailymail.co.uk

Four thugs who attacked a family of British holidaymakers in an unprovoked attack in a Thai resort have been jailed.

Suphatra Baithong and Yingyai Saengkham-in, both aged 32, and Siwa Noksri and Chaiya Jaiboon, both 20, were each sentenced to two years in prison. The sentences took account of confessions from all four of the attackers and were reduced from a baseline of four years.
