The Pattaya Floating Market file a complaint with police after receiving negative – and the park claims untrue – reviews were posted online.

Managing Director Manus Meepong brought the Chinese-language posts on a mainland social network to Banglamung Police Station March 12, seeking criminal action be taken against the poster for claiming the floating market does not accept Chinese tourists, which he said was untrue.

The posts claimed that, from March 10 onward, tour bus operators OA and SG Transport are no longer allowed to park at the Sukhumvit Road tourist attraction. That is false, Manus said, claiming the review damaged the park’s reputation.

The user who posted the accounts has now deleted the account.

The case was referred to the Technology Crime Suppression Division for investigation of violation of Thailand’s Computer Crime Act. But since the online poster was anonymous, likely a foreign tourist who has deleted the account, it’s unlikely anything more will happen.
