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

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

That is good news Bergen, thanks for the heads up. A friend sent me this story in the Australian mainstream press which made me chuckle in more ways then one. http://www.traveller.com.au/ubon-ratcha

Ben Groundwater gets around all over the world. Thank you Memock. The bar in the photo with the two ladies is unfamiliar to me. I couldn't place just where in Ubon it is.

Perhaps people with more Ubon down-town experience could locate it for me. I would like to try it out.

The 24 going from Ubon to Det Udom is now being completed to be a 4 lane rd all the way.

The "new" 4 lane expansion will go over the rice fields on the east side of the narrow Ban (can't remember the name) which starts by the police box and the rd. turning left to Na Yia thumbsup.gif

Likewise work has started on the 4 lane expansion east of the Charoen Sri intersection on the ring road .... hopefully that will involve the bulldozing of the smelly kanom chin set up just outside our villagesmile.png

Been past there several times laying trails for bar visits by the Hash House Harriers. Never knew it was a licensed premises - not advertised as a bar outwardly. Probably just as well - looks like if you accidentally fell over inside you could be into multi-pan baht breakages. Not that I'm suggesting we get that pi$$ed-up that we fall over.

Looks like more about style and food than about drinking. Still worth checking out!

It abuts the car park of the Ratchatani Hotel where Ratchabut Road meets Kuanthani Road. It's at the same location as the Black Box Beer and BBQ kiosk marked on the attached map of a recent bar hash.

Open Wed to Sun 10:30 to 22:00 according to facebook page. I wouldn't mind betting that in that part of town it closes earlier than 10pm unless it has custom!

In this article, it talks about a 5 year plan to improve Ubon. A 2nd ring road to keep trucks out of the city, new underpasses and/or overpasses are all mentioned. I haven't heard or seen any specific plans so who knows how much is talk.

It sounds like the land that's been filled next to Thai Watsadu over by Central is going to be Index Living Mall.

I am a little surprised that Index would want to be build a new Index Living Mall. Every time I go to the current Index on Chayangkun road the place is absolutely dead. Before they moved there the first Index at Sunee was only marginally better. Perhaps Index have done their due diligence and expect sales to boom out there on the ring road.

Wait long enough and the custom might arrive to justify the outlay. In the case of Global House though they must be targeting the next century to provide justification for having 8 bill checkers at the exit!

Agreed Santisuk. Global house is a joy to shop in because there is hardly any one shopping there. I wonder why? For building supplies I perfer Home Hub (Sri Rum for us old timers).

Sawadee to all members here!

First of all I want to introduce myself:

I'm a 60 year old Austrian living most of the time in Pattaya, but my wife is from Ubon R., so I stay average 1 week/month in a small village near Non Khun/Sisaket.

Now my question to the community:

My stepson (aged 15) just managed it to start at NARINUKUN SCHOOL , but the problem is the long way to school.

So we decided to rent an affordable room for him.

Is there anyone who could give me an advice (preferably a room very near to school)?

My son acts independently, but he is a little bit shy.

For any advices I would be very thankful.

regards
