Pattaya-area authorities continued their crackdown on illegal hotels, checking accommodations on Beach, Second and Third Roads.

Banglamung District Chief Naris Niramaiwong and Pattaya police chief Pol. Col. Apichai Kroppech and Tourist Police commander Pol. Lt. Col. Piyapong Ensarn led the May 1 inspection squad

The majority of hotels, guesthouses and smaller apartments offering daily and monthly rents lacked documents to operate as hotels. Most were foreign-owned and a large number had foreign employees, all of whom were taken to the police station to verify their visas and work permits.

All the hotels will be given an opportunity to show the proper documentation or apply for them if needed. Should they fail to comply, court orders will be sought to close them down.
