Ubon Ratchathani News & Development


Recommended Posts

Good day to all,

 

I would like to rent a house in an Ubon moo baan before buying. Area Nai Muang ,maybe Sarin Village.

Anyone have an idea how rentals on moo baans are to be found?

Is it the juristic office or people posting ads in Big C?

Am in BKK at present but will be in Ubon District soon and have a month or so to find a rental house.

I've seen ubon homes. com but not too much on there at moment.

Anyone know any agents?

Was there last year and looked at a Sarin show home and it was ok. 

Thanks for any guidance,

 

Nick

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.

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

Air Asia is opening routes to Chiang Mai and Utapao from Ubon. It's been approved but I haven't seen a time frame. Anyone know when?

Ubon - Pattaya (U-Tapao) is certain.

Partial information is available in this thread:

The metered Taxis at the airport: I was there around 11am this morning doing a delivery. I did not see a single taxi there ( not even outside at the front entrance / gate ).
I am at the airport several times per week. If I see metered Taxis, I will post it here to keep everyone updated.

Ubon to Pattaya flight is being advertised around town now. I personally can't wait until the sign says Chiang Mai or Phuket though...

If you want to fly to Chiang Mai, you can do so using KAN AIR, where 15 KG of checked-in luggage is included

Great news. Thanks for the info. Make travelling with kids far easier instead of having to fly to BKK and then onto Patts. Personally i'd also love if they brought back the Phuket route also.

I've used it a lot but they've become unreliable. They like to cancel the route the day of travel without telling you until you arrive. Happened 3x now.

The land in question belongs to Mrs Sunee. It was a swamp and she filled up all the land for development some time in the future. However, she encroached on government/local community land which runs like a long snake through her new property. She has been ordered to return this land to its original level and state. So the land fill has to be dug out to get down to the original level. I guess in the wet season it will become inundated with water and swamp plants will grow, enabling it to return to something like its original state.

 

I actually thought it was a canal for flood control. Behind the Debua Villa hotel there is a road that takes one to a housing estate which is now below the Sunee land fill. This estate was built in the late 1990s. The floods in 2000, 2001 and 2002, destroyed many of the houses. Now there are only remains four large two storey houses, of which one is abandoned. The concrete roads are still there. Further on behind Thai Watsudu is a temple which also suffered during these floods.

So when I saw the large and deep canal, I immediately thought it was to prevent future flood damage to these houses and the temple. Of course I was wrong. The government wants its swamp land back.

Err...actually I think Ubon has been pretty progressive in rapidly constructing 4 lane sections on the main out-of-town highways in the few short years (8) that I've been around this region, so I'm not sure that the track record supports skepticism ubonrthai.

 

One for the Sisaket junction after those other two please! Basic overpasses to keep ring road traffic flowing are all that's needed - fancy clover-leafs would be OTT.
