"expat Hubbies Urged To Back Isan"

Recommended Posts

Having never been to Isaan I guess my views not worth a great deal but I'd of thought (other than the possible financial investments) the last thing a beautiful (of what I know/have seen on here and net/read about) area like Isaan needs is coach loads of obese Mcdonald eating tourists wandering round dropping their chocolate wrappers all over the place while trying to control their destructive kids...

God i've never been there and i'm already trying to save the place for myself :o

Expat hubbies urged to back Isan

By Sumeth Wannapruek

TAT wants them to promote tourism

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)'s Northeastern Office in Khon Kaen has launched a cultural tourism project that is hoping to transform expatriates married to Thai women from the Northeast into spokesmen for the region's tourist attractions. The office plans to wow the expatriate husbands with the region's tourist attractions in the hope that it will prompt them to spread the word about Isan to their friends and family back home.

Just read this on the post, thought it might interest some of you. Seems a bit 'grasping at straws' if you ask me, take 15 dudes out, charge them 1100 baht for the day for the promotional tour and hope they spread word of Isaan to the west!

any where else in the world and they would had payed you making you pay i doubt there will be much of a turn out whitch will quash any plans to do this in other provinces shame that some times they it half right..........

I'm afraid they wouldn't approve of my thoughts. As soon as I recited my rules, they would throw me out and most likely without a refund. In case anyone wonders about my rules. they are;

Never spend more here than you can afford to walk away from.

Never be worth more dead than alive.

Keep a low profile.

Well glenbat, it sounds like you are talking about Thai kids. I have a two meter high block wall all around our property. Walking aoround the outside perimimeter is depressing. Candy wrappers, plastic bags, bottles and anything else they decide to throw against the wall. There were several small trees started and they have all been broken and damaged to the point that they died. I bitch to my wife and she shrugs and tells me the brats don't care because it's not their property.
