No Short Term Rentals Of Condominiums

It is great to see that many laws, rules and regulations are being enforced now after a long period of selective enforcement and sometimes a non existence regard for rules and the law. One such law prohibits people from renting condominiums by the day or week.

For too long condominium dwellers have had to put up with people renting out their condos for a few days at a time to any Tom Dick or Harry. This has been against the law for ages. The problem with short term rentals is that many of the short stayers had no respect for the other residents as they were only staying for a few days.  Likewise, the authorities had no idea who they were. Noise, mess and anti social behaviour was prevalent. I am pleased to say that this notice has appeared in the lobby of the condominium in which I live which is a good start in enforcing the law.

Unfortunately it  was mainly westerners who were at fault where I live. I am really encouraged by this notice and hope for the best.

Massage in On Nut - Up Date

The massage shop count in On Nut has gone up !  Now there are about 36 massage shops and spas within a few mninutes walk of On Nut BTS station. Three more have opened in Sukhumvit 79 and two in Sukhumvit 50.

The three new shops in Sukhumvit 79

Two of the new shops in Sukhumvit 79 (The Tree and Takrai Hom) have other shops in Sukhumvit 77/1 but the two new ones in Sukhumvit 50 are originals I believe. I have visited the new Nature Spa and Massage establishment in Sukhumvit 50 (located in the new retail area adjacent to the Link condo development) and had a very good body scrub and massage. Very professional and a delight to experience. I recommend it for anyone in need of a professional treatment.

How this number of shops survive I have no idea. But they do.
