This party is supposed to cover the whole of Isaan so if you are travelling from afar anyway then whats another couple of K's. I live in Korat so it is all extra K's for me but I would rather do that than sit in some small restaurant somewhere and not enjoy the venue at all.

I live 70km south of Buriram, so for me it is not a few extra K's

I still don't know if I will be attending any of the TV parties, it's a timing thing nothing else, but if I do it will be either BKK or Patts, as the time to get to them would be about the same as KK, plus I'm not trapped in one venue.

The few extra K's was referring to being north of Khon Kaen, so wherever you are situated south of KK then its the same "few extra K's". And surely Bangkok and Pattaya are a darn sight more K's than KK anyway.......but if you feel that you would be "trapped" when socialising with other members then perhaps you didnt ought to put yourself in such a position, I agree, although I fail to see why you would want to meet members from a different section of the forum that you never converse with.

(ie: Bangkok and Pattaya)

Er, a bit of variety perhaps, and making the assumption that I don't converse with people outside of Isaan is just that, an assumption.

I have attended several TV gatherings over the last few years both close to home and further away, the further away ones in locations that are already known for partying were more enjoyable in my experience....... but that is just my experience.

Fair comments Thaddeus, each to his own.....but this is getting away from the point I was trying to make on behalf of Raro, that this venue will allow for a much better social gathering , for those that want to, than some small restaurant.

Someone has even suggested getting a group up to play golf at the nearby golf course during the day.

So many things to do so long as people open their minds to the benefits and how they can enjoy themselves.

I would have been keen as beans to go, even though it's around 150km from where I live, but unfortunately already had flights booked when it was announced.

I think it's a perfect venue for anyone who wants to travel from Isaan. As its reasonably central geographically, but also reasonably central to the farang populations of udon Khon Kaen and korat) Except that maybe some Farang in Isaan might find it quite expensive (I normally pay around 400-500THB a night for hotels, so 3000+ is quite expensive, or is that the 2-3 nights)I'd imagine a lot of others feel the same way), thus might be hesitant to commit to it unless they know it'll be really good.

Likewise I think a lot of Farang in Khon Kaen city probably voted for Khon Kaen because they wouldn't be willing to travel at all (maybe no car, and it is the rainy season), especially as they likely don't know the buses which go there etc. This might also be the case for Farang living in other parts of Isaan too.

Therefore, a suggestion on how to improve this:

Start a thread up offering car pooling from various areas. Or tell people to bus to Khon Kaen and then hire a van/bus to take them to the resort (could have a fee for this to recoup costs). Or do both.

Also maybe put up an estimate of costs, e.g. BYO or buy at how chow, if buying from howchow, roughly how much per drink. Likewise how much might any additional activities cost?

A list of activities and timetable could be a nice addition too, as going to the resort in the countryside for a few days just to relax with other TV members + drink on the Sat night, might no appeal to all with such large distances to cover. Instead organised plans to play golf, visit pretty temples or go bowling might be more appealing. Especially as then other members who live locally but maybe don't want to pay 4000THB a night might just come along for bowling or golf or something (this might be up already I dunno, I didn't read much further after I saw I'd be overseas for the party unfortunately).

But yeah, that's my 2c

I agree that it is bit more expensive that what we (Thai wife) would normally want to pay especially since we will have our kids traveling with us.

I think getting to the resort for the party from KK would not be a problem using public transport but getting back at a late hour would be impossible.
