Looks like the government are successfully doing their best to deter people to visit Thailand.

Only the north, I fear

I would assume the participants paid a fee to the organisers of the event who were in fact working without a permit... Are immigration  really wrong to arrest illegal workers....

It was a matter that could have perhaps better been regulated off stage, without the need to cancel an event that was important for the hotel, local people, and the tourist industry.

 

Some might consider this high profile response disproportionate.

 

Maybe we dont have all the facts.

They should have hold it in YMCA, I see a lot of seminars there almost everyday.

I can see the issue if money is being made. It's business and Thailand and the cops not getting their cut. Fair enough but a license? Hopefully they mean a permit. Anyway, it's hopelessly anti business. Just hope it was something worth shutting down like MLM or how to set up boiler room operation in Thailand. 

 

Shame on the hotel for letting it happen.

 

 

Money is made for digital nomads too doing videos online or selling stuff online while they are in Thailand.

 

Do you see immigration arresting these digital nomads?

I don't follow the news so closely but entirely unaware of any *digital nomads* arrested other than a few idiots that basically brought it upon themselves (few).

 

Besides, if they are nomadic why do they all need to be so archored in Thailand?

This country is one big joke.

To hold the seminar in China where most participants came from would have incurred a higher cost for the organizer, I would think.

 

It's the same reason as the digital nomads i.e. cost of living is lower in Thailand.

 

These digital nomads live in Thailand on shoestring budget but do Youtube videos among other things to earn money.

Shocking holding a seminar without first parting with the required brown envelope.

Immigration police should get a BIG pat on the back for sorting out those major criminals, making Thailand safe.:cheesy::cheesy::cheesy:

I heard something about someone being arrested in Hua Hin for putting a banner advert on his website.
