Meant to post this the other week ... Had some friends over from Sweden a few weeks ago ... They were staying in a hotel in Pattaya for a few days before visiting family ... We booked a night at the hotel ... One of our favourites called the Sabai Resort ... When we checked in ... A new thing was done ... Apart from the usual ID requirements ... They took our photo ? They told us this is a new requirement ... Not sure if its just that hotel ... Or throughout Thailand ?
