I have been coming to Nakhon Sawan for 8 years now and on my first trip here I spoke to a guy in town who said there were 6 farangs who lived here permantly.8 years on I now live here and see more and more farangs around town and big c etc.

Could anyone hazard a guess at how many of us live here?

regards

Madyakka :D

G'day to you all who live in Nakhon Sawan. I will eventually move here once I've stopped working. Wife and I are slipping up for a few months at the end of the year to start on the house. I've been coming to NS for the past 20 odd yrs. We're contemplating to build behind the Army Brks and not far from BigC (just across the bridge) I think it might be a good idea if the farangs got together and formed a club of sorts. Any more ideas or suggestions, it would be something to keep ones' mind occupied. I don't plan to work in thailand. There are a number of exchange male and female school teaches I have seen and spoken to very occasionlly, from the usa. A meeting place could be set up at the book shop if that's a start.

Hi huahin,I had thought of that Idea and I'm sure it has some potential as the shop will have free space on the 2nd floor,I dont mind setting up tables and chairs coffee facilities and a fridge full of beer but it would be on an honesty box system and would hopefully not be abused.I see many farangs meeting at Big C and

apart from the beer girls I cant see the attraction in meeting there,so If you guys are at all interested let me know,the more people that show interest the more of an effort I will put in to provide a comfortable meeting place with cheap beer,coffee etc for our fellow farang,

regards

Madyakka

:D

Sounds a good idea.

I know 1 Dutch guy who is here regularly, 1 American and I guy from the UK. There are quite a few Germans here too.

Maybe a good place to meet apart from those in BigC. Just make sure you have enough beer on hand..... those guys look like they drink a lot :o

Later this year hoping to visit Thailand and Nakon Sawan again. Any hotel suggestions for books who'd rather spend money on books than beds with business centres?

Mai Homme

450 Baht a night. Air con. Dble bed. Very clean too. Local for the park. Local also for clubs. maybe the best hotel in NS.

If you want the number I'll get it for you.

Alternatively for a longer stay of 1 month or more the Teuk Thai Hotel / Apartments is 4 - 5000 Baht month for a large room + small balcony with air con + elec + water. Keycard access, security guards and car parking. Also very central.

I have been in Auckland for about 10 days now and whilst it is a nice place I find it is COLD. Last night it was + 9deg. I want to come home where it is nice and warm and where KFC doesnt cost 250 baht for the cheapest menu.

Still with a bit of luck I should be home at Xmas or early January.

I will be opening a bookshop in Nakhonsawan with a modest selection of english books to begin with but will be expanding all the time so stop by for a coffee and a chat,the coffee will be free and dont feel obliged to buy anything.Its in Daowadung rd next to the new ECC building,across the rd and down from

Tsutaya video shop.

It should be open in 3 weeks hopefully so come in and say hello

Cheers

Hi Dave

I live south of Khampaeng Phet and go to big C once a month for bulk shopping.

I have about 200 books that I am reading for the second time so if you are interested in doing a swap that would be good.

Cheers

Bill

Hi everybody...I live South of KPPT too..near Tamakluah, Klong Klung..Although I am working away at the moment..I have been here for 4 years but before that lived in Issan for 8 years ..with a previous wife..The farangs seem different here..much less willing to strike up a friendly conversation ....but that could just be my opening inane comments!!

So if you see a farang in a black Vios stop and say hello!!!

Will definately try the bookshop at Xmas!!

Hi Bill,

which area of Auckland are you in?Try Mad dogs and Englishman for a Sunday roast at $6, it sells out quick so be there before 6pm(Link drive, Glenfield).They also have a good selection of English beers on tap

and a lot of expats drink there including myself when I'm back,

best of luck,

Hi Madyakka

I am staying in Mt Wellington which is south of Auckland just off the route1 and about 15 minutes from the office in Eden Terrace so I probably wont be getting over there much.

However I should be home for a couple of weeks over Xmas and new year depending on the flights.

Hi Bullfrog

I’ve lived in Nakhon Sawan province for 12 years. I have also found the majority of farangs here in this province to be somewhat shy. It’s weird! I’m sure it is not the case, but I’ve often wondered if the chap I’ve just said “Hi” to is on Interpol’s list…such is their reaction.

Well, if it wasn't for the free beer last time, I probably wouldn't have talked to you either. :o

Oh well, it's approximately 18 days till I'm back home to Nakhon Sawan.....will be my turn to have to cold ones ready to be consumed. Get the welcoming crew together for a meet-up; just not in town.
