First Uber and now AirBnB is the latest among the international service brands fallen under the legal scrutiny by the authorities and could not come off clear. A court in Hua Hin has decided that people who rent out their rooms via AirBnB on daily or weekly bookings are acting illegally.

Wan Vayla condominium in Khao Tao got intimated by the local authorities outlining the court verdict on two out three cases registered against them. A total of 20100 Baht must be paid as fine in two cases closed yesterday.


Rental legalities permit a span of at least 30 days or more. The local authorities decided to move the case to court in last December. The ruling might effectively affect the majority of AirBnB’s operations in the country.

AirBnb heavily promote their business in Thailand including arranging training and award giving events. Thousands of people are offering their properties for this service. The court ruling can be really the beginning of severe circumstances for the brand.
