Lately I have came across various shops ran by Chinese, Koreans and other asians.
They do a business / job that would normally be only for Thais and also do not appear to have 2 or 4 Thai staff at all.

They been doing so since longer times already, sit right in the face of everyone, never get questioned let alone raided.
This while, to my experience, if a Farang would do so, he can expect a raid within days or weeks. 

Are there some special agreements for the 2 mentioned countries that make them being allowed to do so?
I am not a rat, but I just got curious about it as I see it more and more.

did you ask them if they have a Thai passport?

I asked some if they are Thai or have one, they don't.
Not talk to everyone of course but I doubt they do. They do not speak Thai either and are pretty much new in this country. No Thai wife either.

Are you sure they are not from Myanmar, Laos or Cambodia? There are different rules for them.

Hehe no, they are really Korean and Chinese / maybe some Taiwanese. I know indeed it is different for those and that is nothing new under the sun for me.

Vodka makes people have insomnia, IO's forget. The Russian girls have their own ways of keeping IO's happy.

Asians have a little of leniency here in Thailand.... some ancestry/family tree roots maybe?

That is the only thing that I can think off, if legitimate. Though it would be interesting that those all start to show up recently and be exactly the ones with a shop too.

Well yes, or like Turkish ice cream. I thought there might be some special arrangements, if doing something specifically from your country that is unique and contribute. However, this is not in the well known areas where those paid off things usually happen, this is in CM.

This is also why I am curious about it, as I would have some ideas then too. I really don't mind them doing business, if up to me, everyone can.
