Yes, there is a very unsavoury element in Pattaya, I believe the Thai cops have a hard time with Russian mafia and other criminal elements.
It also occurred to me that perhaps the raids the other night were connected to protection payoffs - you pay us so much a week or we'll raid your premises and give your customers a hard time.
Just in case I'm going to photocopy my passport - first page & current visa and carry that in my wallet. If I'm ever stopped I'll show that but I'm not carrying original passport every time I step out the front door.
