Landlord Shocked

A landlord in Samut Sakhon Province was left in a state of shock at how filthy two teenage tenants had left the place before doing a disappearing act.

The owner went to check the room after the tenants failed to pay the rent for the third month in a row and couldn’t believe her eyes when she entered and found the place like a pigsty.

She shared the photos on Facebook sating it looked like the two teens hadn’t thrown anything out in the two years they’d been renting the room.

Bottles were filled with urine, trash tossed everywhere and boxes and bags of unfinished food left rotting on the floor.

Bangkok’s Biggest Soapy Set To Become A Hotel After Covid Killed Its Business

Unhappy Ending At Poseidon

Bangkok’s biggest soapy massage is throwing in the towel to become a hotel after Covid-19 killed their business.

The 11-storey Poseidon massage parlour on Ratchadaphisek Rd in the Huai Khwang area of the city boasted an in-house nightclub, restaurant and hundreds of luxury themed rooms filled with king-size beds and bathtubs.

Girls wore different badges according to their desirability with prices starting at 3,200 baht for two hours in a private room – with membership schemes for loyal customers.

However, despite the luxurious appeal, visitor numbers have plummeted since March last year when a travel ban was introduced and ‘high risk’ businesses were closed.

Poseidon did re-open but was closed for a second time at the end of December following the Covid-19 outbreak at a seafood market in Samut Sakhon province.

Dejected owners of Bangkok’s biggest soapy will now rip out the garish furnishing and turn it into a three-star hotel.

A source at the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), which owns the land and overseas the lease, said the Covid-19 pandemic had killed the massage parlour’s income. They now want to change their line of business to adapt to the new economy.

The source said: ‘Poseidon is on a large plot and their lease will expire in February 2024. They have requested a renewal of the 30-year lease along with a request to modify the 11-story building.

‘Currently, they operate a massage parlour business but the Covid-19 outbreak has caused a downturn in business as there are no tourists. They have a budget of 200 million baht to turn the building into a three-star hotel business.’

The transition from soapy massage knocking shop to a hotel is going to take some serious marketing efforts to prevent former customers showing up only to find the goldfish bowl has gone along with the hundreds of ladies.

300 Baht Tourist Fee For International Arrivals Proposed

The Government are considering a proposal to tax tourists 300 baht to cover the cost of medical bills and the management and developing of tourist destinations.

Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn announced that each international visitor to the country will have to pay 300 baht. It was also revealed that the fee was scheduled to come in effect last year, but the decision was postponed due to the global Covid-19 situation.

The details of how the fee will be collected will be announced at a later date in the Royal Gazette once the policy has been approved.

Of the 300-baht fee, 34 baht is expected to be used for the insurance coverage, Mr Phiphat said, with the remainder being used for management of local tourist destinations.

Thailand expects to receive some 10 million visitors in 2021.
