There are many places in Thailand that are quite nice... country people are great. Learn to speak the language and customs and you will have the time of your life...

 

But, why Sisaket? That doesn't sound too normal...

Be thankful. Be very thankful.

A blessing in disguise.

The less the better.

Generally, the better parts of Thailand are the places with the fewest expats.

By the way, by the grace of God, i'm English.

Don't tell everyone. Now they'll all be looking for places with the fewest ex-pats🙄

That's why I'm staying in Pattaya. All the expats here apparently are either moving to another (cheaper) country or "up-country" to get away from other expats so soon I will have the whole place to myself ! (Well, me and 3-4 million Chinese and Indian tourists.) 

I will be like a god to the local bar owners (and select members of the opposite sex) ! :w00t::w00t:

Spent a bit of time in Sisaket a few years back. Small town, it is definitely "the sticks." Cuckoo's Nest seemed like the main (only?) expat hang out in town -- near the train station, American owned, good Western food. They had quiz nights going and I met a few English teacher expats.

 

Ubon and Surin and even Buriram have much more of an expat scene than Sisaket, and more to do in general I reckon. Out of those four lower Isaan provinces, I'd choose Ubon.

I am thinking of moving to this area, but worried that there will be no English speaking ex-pats to mix with. I am Australian of English birth.

Count yourself lucky not to have to put up wit a lot of english speaking expats. where we are there are only a few and we don't see /talk to them  , except one .Peace and quiet.

Having spent alot of time in sisaket, Khu Khan and Prangku I can assure you there are more normal farangs in Pattaya.

Are you one of these "normal Farangs"?

 

OP. in Sisaket , but also in Khukhan and Khun Han are plenty of foreigners and places to meet them.

 

It's pretty much the same everywhere, you'll find good and bad guys.

What a nonsense and racist post. We all communicate in English here.

 

  It's not where you're from, it's who you are. And reading your post, I have my doubts about you. I'm glad not to know you. 

 

  There's only a minority who only speak German, or Norwegian.

 

The majority are from English speaking countries. Americans, Brits, Australians, and South Africans.

You're so wrong. Times are changing and I'm certain that Sisaket these days has quite a lot of foreigners and some decent foreign restaurants.

 

Ubon Ratchathani is much bigger than Sisaket, of course are there more foreigners. Ubon is only 65 km away, there's also an airport.

So,why choose Sisaket? You can of course move there,it will be quiet and boring. Do you know anything about Thailand?

I live in Kantharalak, I am Danish, and here are foreigners from many countries. 

There is an Australien who opened a bar/restaurant a few month ago.

Pizza4you and Black Dog are other places where foreigners meet.

The town has a Tesco and soon a Global House and a lot of local shops and restaurant.

Houses for rent at reasonably prices.

There are more ratings in Sisaket than you think. A lot of them spend time at the Kuckoo's Nest. It's "owned" by an American named Brian. There's not a lot to do here; but, the "booming" metropolis of Ubon is only an hour away. All the horror stories you read about immigration pretty much do not exist in Sisaket. Normally in and out in less than 15 minutes. I personally travel to Ubon 3 times a week (early morning). We have a small group. If you need more info check out the Cuckoo's Nest on FB. Brian will give you all the info you need.

Yes but it must cost them a fortune shagging bar girls as that is what they are there for. Not my style thank you. I have no desire to live in a big brothel zone.

What a good boy.....!

Why is this a nonsense post ? Is it because we like it Quiet?Or that You Don't like it if we don't talk to many people? I know now who's talking <deleted>  :jap:
