Well having left Buriram in November last year, having been a bit nomadic around LOS and in different relationships etc etc:

A few months ago I rented a Bungalow outside Petchabun: But recently moved more Central with my New lady of whom I have known for almost 2 months now: At the moment apart from language problems the relationship is going well.

Well anyway we moved more Central to the town: nice Bungalow rented 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms lounge kitchen and we had furniture delivered usual stuff.

1.7 clicks from Tesco and Big 'C' and 7 clicks from my mates house:

Petchabun is situated right along side the Route 21 and 506 clicks from Chang mai and about 300 from Bkk.

Here are a couple of pics the New Ban and the view from the rear:

Petchabun I find is a pleasant area of Thailand to live in with the scenery and the folks are very helpful and friendly

There is a Farang Bar named Scoogies nice food booze cheap as well The proprietors Ian and Dee are good friends and do not live from from us at our location.

There are plenty of restaurants for Thai food and Karaoke bars and 3 night clubs.

There is night life if you know where to go ahemmmmm:

You can get Bkk post and The Nation in English and there is a Translation office that is not expensive:

Nong Khai immigration is about three half hours away:

There is an immigration at Thali which is only 170 clicks away for those on retirement Visa who do not need to Leave LOS:

and the staff are very friendly similar to Khap Cheong

Well thats all for now more soon

Well more news soon

What's a reasonable range for the cost of Western-fit housing rental up there???

The Bungalow shown in previous post is costing me 5000 bht a month that is with two air-con but unfurnished. The one I had before was 3500 bht per month okay but not maintained by the owner furnished with one air-con

You can get two storey town houses with shop or parking facility below from 2500 bht upwards

If you want any more info only to pleased to help

Well today I ran up to Tha-Li Immigration Office and re-newed my Retirement Visa it took less than 30 mins Cost 1900 bht:

This office is located not far from Muang Loei the journey from Petchabun was very scenic over the mountains and took me and my mate MGC two and a half hours:

This seems to be the nearest point to Petchabun, I might add that it is not a border crossing: There is a border crossing some 6 kilometres away into loas but it is for Thais only.

Located 170 kilo from Petchabun : route 21 North turning off onto the Pitsanaluk Road then towards Muang Loei passing Dan-Sai

Office details below (Staff very relaxed and friendly)

Please do, macb,

I'm a kind of interest in hearing more about Petchabun eversince I learn that durring the WWII, Thai Gov't ( Field Marshall Plaek Phibulsongkram - Thai Prim Minister at that time) was seriously thinking to move the capital Bangkok to Petchabun. They even called Petchabun " Switzerland " at one time. :o
