I live on Chaweng Mountain and many of the villas/houses are rented daily/weekly/monthly on Airbnb.  The few of us who live here all year have to put up with loud parties until 6:00 am, idiots parking in our driveway, and motorcycles roaring up and down the mountain at all hours.  Are the police just being paid off or is there anything I can do?

Was it you who grassed him?

 

Just asking like.... 😄

First it was unlimited  border runs. The it came crackdown on tourists visas. Then retirees (who were ironically cheering against those filthy backpackers) were targeted with new seasoning rules. Soon health insurance. Now it's TM30.

 

Next: Arrogant Farangs who still think they own a house in Thailand.

 

Yes, this next crackdown is coming like it or not. 

I am not sure what you are alluding to. Are you complaining that Thailand is now enforcing the laws, some of which have been in place for quite a long time???

I think what he is saying is either they do nothing or go over the top with doing something and then back to doing nothing.

 

no consistency  or fairness at all. 

 

In case of OP, in most countries you would get fined not arrested

It amazes me how quick the police got the arrest warrant for a victimless crime

Someone is robbed, raped or murdered and it takes forever to think about it

lots of hate comments . But All these regulation the goverment is enforcing, takes away oppertunities  for  young   entrepreneurs to enter the hotel and tourism industry and  offering  unrivalled accomodation to guest who make   that make the extra effort to look elsewhere  for their bookings.  

 

If I started on a budget and I can offer a better deal  by letting and subletting  and renting through air BNB why not?. this is all about Hotel greed and goverment  Tax....  there are a lot of people caught in tough place,  condo and villa owners trying to subsidize their life style here, with ever changing goverment rules

Geez - the definition of 'entitlement'.

 

Thailand does not owe you anything. You are free to invest in a company, with a legitimate Thai partner - why is that not good enough?

 

Subsidizing your 'life-style'... F. F. S. :violin:

Supalerk said police summoned the businessman to face charges of illegally running a hotel, but he refused to turn up at the police station. Police later learned that he planned to fly from the island to Suvarnabhumi Airport on Tuesday and intended to leave the country, so they obtained and executed an arrest warrant from the Samui Court.

 

Wonder how they found that out ?

But youre missing the point, it's doing exactly what they want it to do. Only Thais with the right connections are allowed to make money from the hotel & tourist industry, anyone else are unwanted competition, and they don't want that.....

Very rude of Thailand to expect us to follow the law


Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

Laws keep changing , hard to keep up which one to follow

The big problem for Thailand is that illegal hotels don't collect or pay vat.
