Category: Hotels, Posted:01 Mar 2012 | 06:00 am

Thailand's hospitality sector is eyeing the demolition order of the Bangkok Aetas Hotel with growing interest.

Both the hotel owners and Bangkok Metropolitan Authority (BMA) who approved the permits despite a roadway access of less than 10 meters are in the hot seat.
Illegal hotels and unlicensed development continues to prevail in what has traditionally been a less than stellar regulatory environment.
According to an online poll by the Bangkok Post over 75% of readers do not believe the hotel will actually end up being demolished.
