Ubon Ratchathani News & Development


Recommended Posts

I was at the airport yesterday. They are doing quite a bit of work already. There is a wall that devides the airport. It is on the Westside of the airport where the stairs up begin. That wall seems to be there to stay and not just to block off the main area.

Also, I didn't see the Kanairlines stand. I saw AirAsia, Nok Air and Thai smile. I went on Kanairlines website and selected a couple of random Friday / Sunday dates to ChiangMai and they said "Sold Out". I wonder if they are really sold out or they just suspended the flights for now due to the fire.

The airport has metered taxis now. http://guideubon.com/news/view.php?t=44&s_id=17&d_id=16 Sent from my iPhone using ThaiVisa app

Any further and we will have to get a Lao visa to do our 90 day reports.

Heard in BKK they are now using BMW ‘pursuit cars’! Gawd knows what training the drivers get!!!! Sounds like a recipe for disaster, to me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Stick your head out of your front door at the scheduled time and I'm sure you'll see one NewPixlaugh.png

Small plane - I think it just sells out a long time in advance.

Ubon is getting a new water park called Thonglor Vista that's scheduled to open in early December. They have a Facebook page here. There are at least 6 other lap pools in town and a water park at the Sunee hotel as well.

Good for the family but I would like a decent 50 m lap pool for exercise. I wonder why that isn't planned in the same complex?

Didn't you see my link? There are several good 50m lap pools that have almost nobody in them if you go at the right time of day. I prefer Nari.

Yes I saw that that link and I know all those swimming pools. I wrote "decent" 50 m pool. The university pool is quite a distance out of town (16 km), open after 4 pm and is now closed until January 2015 for repairs. The sports school pool is not well-maintained and the water quality is not desirable, Nari school pool is ok but lately they don't seem to want people to swim during the day and in the evenings most people swim across and so it is difficult to get good lengths in.

I was in N-Joy on Sunday and got talking to a few local falang teachers. Apparently one of them - a young (to me) guy who has been here only 6 weeks recently suffered an unprovoked attack while walking with friends along the shore of Huai Muang (the reservoir inside the ring road to the west of Tha Chaengsanit). He was attacked out of the blue with a pipe, but managed to get away with only a cut and bruise.

Probably best to be careful or in numbers if you choose to walk along there - apparently the south side is a magnet for youths high on drink and drugs.

I've set hash runs along the north side and that has always seemed safe enough but I have been vaguely aware of groups loafing around on the south side.

Found this on facebook. Anyone have any information.

Not sure if you saw it or not but the first post in this thread is the same fly over. I haven't heard any news about it recently but it would sure be nice to see it done.

I suspect that it will not happen any time soon. All the money for such things is going to Bangkok and the south now.

No major news / development but a nice update...

3 hours ago a group of about 50 soldiers painted the wall on the airport road ( Uppalisan road ) completely white. They are giving it final touches as I am typing this.

They even painted the part of the wall white that had paintings of the King on it.

The wall looks very clean now...obviously. The road as become very bright with quite some glare to get used too ;)
