Long-term Rental

Post by MrBlueSky » April 26, 2017, 10:26 am

I am re-locating from Phuket to Udon Thani in July. I am looking for a long-term house rental on the outskirts of Udon Thani city. I don't expect anyone to do the leg-work for me and I am just asking which districts/areas of Udon Thani are nice to live in. Preferably a quiet(ish) area where expats tend to prefer. I am 50 years of age and English. Many thanks in advance.

Robyen probably has the best ratio of value to condition to quantity available.
The houses (apart from the new Robyen 3??) do tend to be fairly close together though. So how quiet it is depends on what the neighbours you have are like.
If you want to go into town though you really do need your own transport as no baht buses supply the village & picking up an empty (non ordered) tuk tuk would be a minor miracle.
It is now serviced by 3 decent but different falang bars/restaurants though, so you don't actually need to go into central Udon unless you want to..

It is though, horses for courses & very much dependent on what you want to pay. Most of the 'estates' are pretty decent areas to live in but rentals can be rare & expense in some.

You really do need to come up, have a look, see prices, decide where you like & then ask on the Forum what people think of it - it is rather difficult for anyone to state the pluses & minuses on your open ended question.. :D

As Bob says, you really need to come up and have a look. I live in the Sittarom estate, which I can thoroughly recommend. it's inside the southern ring-road and the village is about 5 years old - pool, gym, good security, relatively hi-so. Out of the estate back gate and you are in town in 10 minutes by car/bike, 5 minutes BigC, 5 minutes Thai food market, 2 minutes nearest falang restaurant bar.
There are usually a couple of houses sporting 'for rent' sign...just ask security or sales office.

Thanks Bob and Mac. I have been to Udon Thani a few times but was unsure of what areas are 'good' and 'bad' etc. In terms of being quiet, I was alluding to traffic noise and bars etc. I am due to arrive in Udon on 3rd July and have booked a hotel for the first week which will give me time to see a few places etc. If I need more time then I will just extend my hotel stay. Certainly anywhere on the ring road would be convenient.
