I have little interest in the B&B story but I find the comically huge paragraph indents in the pictured memo to be absolutely ridiculous.

Really funny! I would like to see what they bese that judgement on. Since when is Thai law as specific so it separates days, weeks and month.
The law has not even uppdated since Internet was invented. How much more crazy does it have to be? Can they make a bigger fool out of themselfs?

These headlines are always so misleading, and tiring to see such as "AirBnB is illegal" , "UBER is illegal" - no, they are not illegal, just platforms used to provide certain services. What is illegal is the actual illegal activities done using these platforms, such as breaking the Hotel Act or driving a taxi without appropriate licences. 

 

Is anyone stopping a residence with the appropriate hotel licences using AirBnB as a platform to find customers? Is UBER illegal if the driver has the appropriate taxi licences? The answers is most likely NO in all cases. 

I totally understand the hassles caused by AirBnB in condominiums though, with tourists going to reception asking for towels to the pool and where is the best elephant trip.. 

Fault lies with the condo owner who signed a contract with Airbnb that their unit was in lawful local compliance as a daily/weekly rental. Airbnb has no way to know otherwise. I can signup and offer Buckingham Palace for rent as long as I check all the boxes.

Suspect that there'll be an all Thai, government run service called ThaiBnB, that is the same, but has commission's going straight to the government.
