Child pornography may be harder to find in Bangkok, but it is still freely available just a short 90-minute drive away.

With its unsavoury reputation for prostitution and crime, it came as no real surprise to find child pornography openly and widely on sale in the seaside resort of Pattaya _ although the vendors are far more cautious than their Bangkok counterparts.

After a series of investigative articles by this newspaper on child pornography on sale in the capital, metropolitan police launched a crackdown to drive such material from Bangkok’s streets. This, of course, does not prevent off-street sales, and is no guarantee that such material will not once again appear in street-side stalls.

Following a tip-off that child pornography was openly on sale in Pattaya, Spectrum sent an investigate team to look into the matter on three separate occasions and confirmed that it was freely available.
