There really isn't any "Farang" type nightlife in Kalasin, but several / many Thai type clubs / bars / Disco.... Brand new club on the right hand side of the road as you come into Kalasin from the first exit coming from Yang Talat / khon kaen... Just a little past the entrance to the Rim Pao Hotel....

Plus the Clubs around the Bus Station as well...

You could also check out a little cluster of bars/suan ahaan quite near Tesco. Coming from Yang Talat (and ignoring the left turn leading to the City and the Rimpao) take a left turn a couple of hundred metres before you would pass Tesco on the right. You will see King Karaoke on the left and the food bars on the right, lit up with fairy lights. Be warned that the fare is of variable quality. I shall have to sample the new club near the Rimpao as I haven't been there yet. The hotel itself has a cellar bar with coyote dancers, but it does not get going until late and wasn't much good last time I went. I think there is also a disco near Kalasin Plaza but have never been there,

Thanks George. Apart from MV disco, the only one I haven't been to is this new club just past the Rimpao (which I hadn't noticed). I wonder if anybody can suggest any more? There must be the odd karaoke about. I did see one in a shack on the ring road towards Yang Talat, but it was dire.

There is a Karaoke behind the Entertainment Complex at the bus station, but I have never been in it.

Have been several times. Inside the place is big and very noisy (to the point that conversations become near impossible) with TV screens and soft chairs/sofas. I have yet to see more than a few customers at any one time. Interestingly I bumped into a karaoke girl I talked with there in one of the bars opposite King Karaoke (your Soi Pattaya) a few months later. You can park right outside but if on foot beware of the soi dogs.

Incidentally isn't the music bar that you like up the steps at the side of the bus station Tawan Daeng? They have them in most of the bigger Isaan towns now (next nearest to Kalasin is Maha Sarakham).

I quite liked Darra Bar when they had coyote dancers, and I think you had mentioned that you went from time to time (though you described it at the time of your posts as a go-go bar). However, last time I went there there was just a lounge with a couple of singers.

Am in the UK now so can't go on any fact-finding excursions for a few months,

P.S. I fleshed out what we know already from internet sources. For that reason this may not be 100% accurate but is something to check out.

Hi-Class Karaoke (behind Tawan Daeng near bus station)

King Pap Karaoke, 32 Thanon Pradit, about 1 km north of bus station on what is effectively a big roundabout with temple in the middle as you come from the Rimpao.

King Karaoke, Chai Sunthon Road – opposite sing song bars

SR Karaoke - follow Chai Sunthon Road on other side of 213 bypass (away from city near Tesco) on right circa 200 metres.

The new club is the L Club, and my 30 year old niece says the patrons are too young. On Wednesday Dec. 11/13 I went to the first bar on the left, coming from the opposite direction of the highway, on Soi Pattaya and it was good as usual, they always seem to have girls that can carry a tune. On Wednesday a girl who has been there before and then left was back. This girl can sing. She just blows me away, and she can sing English songs. I think she is better than anyone I have heard on Voice. It's worth a trip just to hear her.

kalasin my other half from there its as dead as a maggot that place

Different strokes for different folks. I find the nightlife in Kalasin is quite good. It has several singsong bars, a couple of night clubs, and in the High Class Complex across from the bus station one of the best rock in roll discos with great live bands I have ever been in. Per capital there are probably as many if not more entertainment places in Kalasin than any other town in Thailand. The one thing it is missing out on are good farang restaurants, other than for Amadeus, and to a lesser extent Frozen there really isn't anything. Then again most small cities aren't any better.

How many people on this forum are from Kalasin City or Province?

My wife is from Kalasin, had a wedding at that big city convention hall not far from the hospital and city hall. We are in Canada now but I'm warming to the idea of heading over there.

I'm looking for information on Kalasin Real Estate, vacant lots, prices, what is and isn't available, what things I should know about. I'm considering options for going over there and retiring young, running businesses possibilities ranging from a tour company or setting up a retirement community for Farang.

Its funny reading this as there are a couple things I know about. My Canadian guests were staying at the Rim Pao Hotel for example...

I have to admit that I don't know too much about Kalasin and what's going on there, but I'm pretty much sure that it's the same as in other small towns in Isaan. And in my hometown Maha Sarakham there is a lot going on. Day and night.

When other foreigners express this kind of feeling towards places in Isaan they normally do not know what they are talking about. Strangely they often think they are "experts" on Isaan after being there"once or twice" visiting the in laws.
