Isaan Maps

Recommended Posts

I can recommend the MapMagic package...the bilingual feature really helps, my wife is learning to read maps.

Now thats wot I call a brave man. :)

Maps & Females are a very dangerous mix :D:D

Yes, it can be...

Typically, I will get an idea of where we are headed, sometimes writing down some rough directions if needed. Then I let the wife do the map navigation and see if it matches mine, offering corrections as needed.

Thanks for all your efforts. I am new to Isaan and am located a/b 90 K from Kaeng Khlor and 60 K from Chaiphum (pls excuse my spelling). I would like a detailed map of each city. We would like to find various stores or outlets which sell everything from "real coffee" to electric supples and construction material. Thanks if you can help. Thanks if you can't :-)

Cheers,

Keoki

Aussapper, I have a house on Rt 212 near the Ban Daan School. The airport is supposedly closed at Loeng Nok Tha, but I have seen Thai soldiers flown into there as recent at January 2007. I took a scooter trip through there and the ramps are in ill repair. The runway is not bad for small aircraft, but I'm not sure about having heavies land on it. Since 2006, Rt 212 has increased from a 2 lane to a 4 lane road all the way to Mukdahan. Were you in the group that built the road in Ban Daan?

Does anyone know if it is possible to get big scale maps of local areas here?

Presumably the highways departments and the 'amphoe' officers must have them, but will they sell copies and who does one ask?

I would like to know if you have had any success in getting these maps. I am also after large scale maps of the area between Mukdahan and Ubon along Route 212. I am particularly interested in the area around Loeng Nok Tha, about half way between Amnat Charoen and Mukdahan. I worked there in 1967-68 on the construction of the airfield and a rural development road. I would also be interested in making email contact with people who are currently living in the area or are familiar with it. This includes any Brit or Australian Sappers or others who worked on the airfield/road.

For Btempleton, I have sent a couple of reply responses to you through Thai Visa Forum. If I do not see it posted in the next 12 hours or so I will send the info to you via email.

Between 4-5 hours depending on speed and traffic.

Should be much less than that. .Surin to Korat is approx. 200 kilometres. Between Prasat, Plackonchai and Nang Rong , it is only 2 lanes. From Nang Rong. it is 4 lanes all the way. Caution !!The highway police are out pretty near every day , on the 4 lane section.On the return ,the highway may not be in such good condition.

Imo, the quickest and less congested route is on the 226 to about 5 km short of Buriram, then a left turn (signposted Khorat) on the Buriram outer ring road and thereafter it's virtually plain sailing (185 km, just over 2 hours).

Quite correct , if you are coming from or North of Amphur Muang,coming from South of Amphur Muang, then highway 24 is best.

I have done Chaen Waen Sangkha to Korat Centre on more than one occasion, but always via route 24.

Best time for the 245 Km trip is departed Home at 1750 and parked in Korat at 2020, with a 15 minute Fuel/Food stop at Nang Rong. Total driving time 2 hrs 15 m !!

I made best use of the little Honda Jazz and its 7 Speed semi Auto box and the headlights of course !!

GPS and Radar Detector....also valuable additional extras :-)

Cheers, MH
