Re: High Altitude Travels in Udon

Time for an afternoon cuppa so we went back for an encore visit to the view behind the jedi and then a stop at the resort at the bottom of the mountain for coffee. The view is worth the visit......no doubt would be worth the trip in the early morning fog. Breakfast available at the bottom of the hil...

cutting plywood to size

I vaguely remember someone mentioning a place where you can get a sheet of plywood cut to size. I don't need any fancy cuts, just a slight L shape about 146cm long, 77cm wide (at the widest) and 65cm wide at the narrowest point. Anyone out there know of a place that does it?

Re: 800k in fixed account, need same day bank letter before hitting immigration Udon Thani

"They will want to see the Bank Book also but the letter is a must." And I've always been told to do it on the same day as you go to Immigration. FWIW......over the past few years my wife and I have gone to immigration sometime during the middle of the week (T/W/T) and around 2PM. The morning rush i...

Re: learning the thai language

Sometimes Thai signs are easy to read.......the international symbol for man/woman to indicate which bathroom is which, for example. But there are times that there's no symbols to guide you, so being able to read ห้องน้ำ is almost a necessity in Thailand. But sometimes the locals will throw you a cu...

Yet another death blamed (by elderly villagers) on the cursed door-facing-3-way-intersection. No matter the man may have lived there for many years or that he was in debt......chalk it up to that intersection.

800k, When Does Three Month Period Start?

So, an extension is due on 1 Nov, but you renew 30 days prior on 2 Oct. The IO tells you to keep 800k in your account for 3 months. Does the 3 month period start on 1 Nov or on 2 Oct?

Yes, in the early days here, we lost power often, but those days seem to be long past us. Then my brother lost power for 5 day...

Behind the jail, across the street, there's a 7-11. The knife guy is to the right of 7-11 as you're facing 7-11.
