A resident of Myanmar’s border town Tachileik claims a recent Covid-19 outbreak spread at sex venue parading as a hotel. 10 Thai women tested positive for the coronavirus after returning from Tachileik where they had worked. Some confirmed they worked at the 1G1 Hotel in the border town.

Tachileik resident Moon Saing told Coconuts Bangkok that the virus spread at the 1G1 Hotel after a group of “fat military generals” from Yangon, where infections continue to rise, had sex with Thai women working at the venue.

“It’s 5,000 THB per session and some charge 10,000 THB to bring home.”

While that’s the only claim reported on hostesses at 1G1 Hotel offering sex services, a Facebook page that appears to be linked to the hotel advertises jobs for “beautiful women.” One post offers a 3 day position to earn 30,000 baht, saying the “entertainment” job has “high class business customers.”

The Facebook page was created in 2016 and named ร้าน 1G1 7Hotel งานพม่า งานท่าขี้เหล็ก งานเชียงราย, meaning jobs in Myanmar, Chiang Rai and at the 1G1 hotel. The name was changed a few days ago, taking out 1G1 hotel, according to Facebook page transparency information.

Another Facebook page under the 1G1 name links to a modeling website based in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao area.
