Police raid Soi Buakhow and Soi 6

Recently the police have stepped up ID checking in Pattaya for the high season, with reports that periodic short time room n closures occurring in soi6. In addition many bars on soi Buakhow have been checked by police (routine ID checks.) This is a somewhat frequent occurrence as well and customers are not usually bothered unless you make a fight with the police

If you are using a motorcycle helmet checks are frequent at the soi9 police station outside Central festival and the Dolphin runabout near the new Terminal 21 mall. Even Thai people are being fined for this. If you are a foreigner make sure you have an international permit with the correct stamp for motorbikes ( yes they do check and will find you if you don’t have it)
