Cue a Immigration Police squad to "pounce" on a vacationing CEO doing some business calls

poolside at a 5 star BKK Hotel. Working on a vacation is illegal in Thailand.

Only if you get caught ?

A UK-based holiday lettings search website Holidu.co.uk has named Bangkok the No.1 place for “workation,” a word which describes both work and vacation, from 150 cities surveyed around the world.

Must have been a good luncheon and promise of 2-weeks free in Phuket.

These criteria include monthly rents, costs for after-work drinks, average daily hours of sunshine, internet and Wi-Fi speeds, as well as interesting events.

and not forgetting plenty of places to stable your unicorn

UK media is becoming the hub of made up words... (Brexit, staycation etc)  watch out for the upcoming "Twindemic" (Covid + Flu)

Nobody has ever cared about what you do online or on your mobile all day regardless of visa just a joke.

 

There was a farang living long-term in Thailand two or three years ago who had a Youtube channel where he mainly talked about an orphanage that he helped out at times. He monetized the channel and donated all the proceeds to the orphanage. Thai authorities contacted him and told him to demonetize the channel or it was "work" and he would be deported. Also, in one of the videos, he bought a bunch of chicken and donated it to a fund-raising event for the orphanage and then he had the audacity of helping set up for that event which apparently was considered "work" and also mentioned in the threat to deport him. I forget the guy's name now.
