Night Life In Kalasin

Recommended Posts

Kalasin is my favourite city in Thailand. It has little traffic, is small and a good portion of it is with walking distance. There is really no Farang type entertainment, but lots of Thai. It seems to be one of the few places left in Thailand, that has what I call "Sing Song Bars" places where ladies get up and sign. As a matter of fact many of these singers come from different parts of Isaan, because Kalasin is one of the only places they can get a job doing this. Unfortunately even Kalasin is losing these bars. My favourite live music venue in all the world is in Kalasin, across from the bus station. There is a restaurant that when it's open has fantastic European food at really good prices. A nice lake to walk around and it has gym, but I have never used it so don't know how good it is.

Do you know the name of this restaurant that "has fantastic European food". And where in Kalasin can I find it?

The name is Amadeus, the owner is Wolfgang, but I don't know where it is now, he was opening a new location, and don't even know if it has opened yet.

I know where he is now,

In Kalasin, coming from the Supak Hotel towards Kamalasai/Roi-Et, you will see the tennis courts on the left, Amadeus is on the right after the Tennis courts just before the traffic lights. If you go across the traffic lights you will see the Schools on the left, eventually coming to a roundabout, this is too far.

There is a sign outside which is easy to spot.

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...

You can dwell on the "Business-Opportunity" part later on. For now, you only have to focus on 2 things: On what long-term visa will you be staying and above all, you will have to look up the "work-permit-situation" for Farangs in Thailand. An absolute MUST.

Cheers.

Toaster, is Amadeus open now and if so what days. I am thinking of a trip this week.

Amadeus is not only open again, but now open Monday thru Saturday, 8:30 am until 8:PM... But Wolfgang really doesn't show up until about 10: am, up until then it is just his wife and helpers who are serving mostly Thai items to teachers from the various schools in the area... The New location is very nice and they seem to be doing a lot more business since the move... Same good menu items and as usual multiple "Specials" listed on the large White Board... They don't really have a sign on the building, but look for their large "A" frame board sign in front listing Pizza's and such... It is next door to the "Alpha English School" which is a small one shop wide place...

I was thinking with the wife being a Thai National I'd be on a Marriage Visa for the first 3 years and then Permanent Resident after that. Seemed like they didn't want to recognize Dual citizenship so that would be out but Permanent Residence would suffice for me.

We'd wait till she acquires her Canadian Citizenship because from what I read she is allowed to be a dual citizenship and under the Canadian Constitution once you've got citizenship they can't take it away ever.

I suppose I should do a little more reading into the work permits. If you are the owner you still need a work permit?

SilverBeast, King Stephen just passed a law that takes away Canadian Citizenship, even from native born Canadians, if they have dual citizenship and are convicted terrorists. Although it is being challenged in the courts, and I doubt your wife is a terrorist.

Thank you for the first TV laugh of the day (I doubt...)
