No Way! Party = Drink = Thai's = drunken fighting idiots. I stay away from this type of party. Been to many and all end up with Thais fighting.

What about a vote for "NO!" Because I say no it does not mean I don't want to meet other Thai visa members.

Why is it that it always has to be with booze? If you ever had a party without booze you might more and a better class of people. And you asked where? But you did not include Sakhon Nakhon or Nakhon Phanom.

I for one will not go because of these reasons.

U are so right, without stupid alkohol a party would make sense, for us farangs and thais, as soon as alkohol is involved it will go wrong! WASTE OF TIME AND EFFORT.

There's been 4 Isaan farmer gatherings, and a few beers haven't made them wrong!

All though I'm not much of a party guy or beer drinker, I'll go anytime,anywhere to meet some likeminded people - if the Singha is cold and readily available! biggrin.png

Depends, will what we say at the party be censored along with many possible topics off limits? ;-)

Why was eastern Issan left out of the chosen few there are 20 provinces in Notheastern Issan.Maybe only list places that have Airports so we can fly there.It is a 3 hour drive to most on the list.I would rather just fly down to Bangkok for a party.Charge for the beer good idea I don't drink beer any how.Both Sakhon Nakon and Nakhon Phanom have airports.My vote would be for Udon Thani.

With all the suggestions one factor has been overlooked......The venue needs to be near an Airport, IE, Udon or Nong Kai, as memebers from Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya or elswhere can then get there easily! It also needs a few decent Hotels.

Good point, but Udon and Nong Khai are NOT the only airports in Isaan. Maha Sarakham is just about the centroid of Isaan, but Roi Et, which is often referred to (locally at least) as the hub of Isaan because of it's central location with roads in all directions like the spokes of a wheel, also has an airport with daily morning flights and five (per week) evening flights to/from Bangkok. See attached map of Isaan. There are also many hotels and resorts in Roi Et and other entertainment spots as previously noted.

yea i agree. what is the point of choosing a location of an Isaan party for the sake of non-Isaan farangs? If Phuket or BKK farangs want to have a party, start a thread. If you want to go to the Isaan party, then find a way to get there. i don't think the majority of the people attending this party will fly. it will be attended by the farangs that live within 1-2 hours of the location.

Isaan is a huge area with thousands of farangs. i think there should be more meetups in more localized areas. of course those already happen without the permission or notification of TV..

wow, what an overwhelming response! I added Roi Et, Mahasarakham and Si Saket to the poll, sorry for the omission!

Roi et is indeed pretty much in the geographic middle of Isaan, would you guys be willing to travel there? Or do we do it better in Khon Kaen as the majority (so far...) voted for it?

You can actually click "delete my vote" and vote again. Sorry for that, I am a Pattaya mod biggrin.png

Is there a way to keep the commenters who hate Thailand, Thai people, Thai culture and Thai customs from attending?

No worries, from my past experience participating at thaivisa parties, they do not dare to show B)

Agreed but Udon has far more flights than (say) Roi-et and so members can get better 'deals' and be more flexible + only another 15 mins flight time

Seems pretty obvious that Udon is the place.

The 3 highest votes with nearly 150 between them are :

Nong Khai 30

Udon 54

Khon Kaen 64

Being as how Udon in mid way between the 2 and has the best air connections for the rest of the country then Udon is the choice

A party is always good, Khon Kaen would seem the most suitable, it is the most central, the biggest (though Udon has more farangs) and I live there.

No free beer deals please, this is a party not a p*ss-up, a few baht for grub is okay.

Later in the year would be best, when it is cooler.

This is not a piss up..This is a party,,Party as in jelly and blancmange ???

anywhere is fine, but preferrably a city with ample accomodations for a party of alot...also, Leo beer...after all, it is the number 1 beer in easaan, outselling all others 2 to 1...

I agree with the above and would suggest that the potential volume of available accommodation should be one of the deciding factors when location is decided. Could it be better to have two venues one in east Isan and one in the west so travelling could be cut down and maybe more people would be interested.
