Farang Population In Nakhon Sawan

Recommended Posts

As people seem interested in Nakhon Sawan I thought I would add this to Madyaka's post and hope he does not mind :D

Where to go and What to do

:o Eating, drinking and dancing on an evening. :D

Not a definitive guide.

I will state here and now that the opinions given here are personal opinions of myself and friends who frequent these places regularly. They are meant as a guide for those who might wish to visit and not to be taken as fact.

Moon Beautiful - Restaurant near Sawan Park.

English / Thai music with 2 bands playing. Not too loud & in your face. Food good. Open until 4 a.m. Usually piped music after 1 a.m. Big screen + 2 smaller tv's for sports etc. Has 1 air con room with large screen tv. Staff has large turnover but service is usually good. Sometimes food not quite what ordered. Beer reasonable prices. Same for mixers.

Brod Aird - Near Sawan Park

Seating at tables with an inside balcony upstairs. 2 bands playing. Music mainly Thai with the odd English song. Rock / Heavy / Medium. Loud!! Food Good. Beer / mixer prices fair. Some staff talk English. Efficient and friendly service. Thais more Farang friendly here too. Tables usually have enough free before 10 p.m. Can book tables for up to 8 / 10 people if you can speak Thai. (They usually remove reservation at 10 p.m. or so). Has 1 large screen visible from balcony or right side (as you enter). Good age range here. Very busy after 10-15 p.m. or so.

Clubhouse - Near Sawan Park

A nightclub. More a place for the younger ones say under 35. 1 band (sometimes 2) playing. Thai music. Loud!! Staff not so efficient. Entry fee 100 Baht. Use ticket for 1st drinks. Usually empty mid-week. Weekend can be very busy. Prices good. Food OK but not the best by far in our experience.

Pimarn Hotel :-

Collection Pub

A quieter place. Usually 2 bands play. Often 1/3 Farang Music. Somewhere comfortable for the older minded people. Music medium volume. Now Expensive compared to other places. Friendly staff. Menu in English / Thai. Some staff speak Thai. Clean and tidy. Large screen tv + smaller tv. Very good service. Can book table.

D&D

For younger people. More a nightclub. Good Thai music. Staff friendly. Expensive. Need I.D. (No I.D. = no entry). The only place so far that I have experienced any violence (that was Thai on Thai).

Ban Konwan

Generally under 35's. Good live music. Very busy - especially after 10 p.m. Often no tables available after 10-30 'ish. Service good to indifferent. (indifferent for Farang when busy in our experience). Expensive. Food often warm, not hot. Staff friendly. Thai people here also seem friendly to Farang.

Ban Suan Hotel

Food reasonable. Staff often slow. Few speak English. Prices OK. Music more Thai Folk / Country. has 2 tv's. Not a place to spend a full evening. Has 1 large air con room with large screen tv.

Bandisan - Near Soi Taitong

A Fish based restaurant. No music. A few staff speak English. Very popular with Thai people.

Mai Son (Coffee Shop) - Near Bansuan Hotel (on the corner opp new 7/11)

Small. Very cheap. Not so tidy. But friendly. Has 4 piece playing country / folk type Thai music. Not loud. Mainly Thais. We find a good place to start before moving on. Little English spoken.

Paradise Club - Near Sawan Park

Not an obvious place. Plenty of Ladies singing - often in short skirts etc. (you get the drift). Ladies will come sit at the table for a small renumeration. Very quiet midweek. have rarely been on a weekend so do not feel I can comment. Staff very friendly & efficient. Food good. Prices OK..

There are plenty of other restaurants on the river. One travels up and down the river while you eat.

Numerous other places to eat and drink that I am not familiar with or have visited once or twice so do not feel I can make a personal comment on.

I have omitted the several other places where you can drink, listen to ladies singing and have ladies entertain you. One where they dance on the tables. Another where 'further down the hall' you can go and book a lady for a short time.

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.

I'm counting down the days and building up a thirst!

Not that I get out a lot on an evening :o

Hmmm, international mags. Why do I immediately think 'Playboy'? Must be my dirty mind :D

I'll be in there this week. Looking forward to a browse. Got some books I have read and need some new material. Saves me a trip to BKK.

Hi all

That's great, I hope the bookshop is a real success!

No doubt I'll be a customer!

I will be moving to the area in 2010 when I retire.

I'll be there for a months holiday each December- January.

Hope to see some of you then.

Cheers

John

Hi John,nice of you to pop by and give me those books,it was very kind and I look forward to seeing you again on your next trip when perhaps we can have a beer and a chat,

Hi Bullfrog,we are on Daowadung rd which runs from Fairyland,a small shopping mall in the centre of town up to wat Killiwong which is the temple on the hill that overlooks the city,we are about 300m from the traffic lights at Matuli and Daowadung rd next to the new ECC school.

Coming from Kampang phet turn left at the first large junction as you come into Nakhonsawan,go straight and through the next set of lights,The temple on the hill should be on your left and also a large Buddha,at the next set of lights turn right onto Daowadung rd we are 300m on the left next to ECC.

Coming from Phitsanalok,after crossing the bridge go through the first set of lights, turn left at the 2nd set,go straight past the big Buddha and turn right at the lights,we are 300m on the left next to ECC.

hope this helps Bullfrog and no I dont drive a sandhopper,see you when your down this way.
