Looks like the "River" will not be in the river this year. Do remember flying in after the floods 5 years ago. Sure thought I saw that area under water.

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

I heard that Spagos is closing at it's current location and moving to a new location on Chayangkung Rd in September.

Topic here about it.

Traffic circles? Good god!

 

Rule no 1 at traffic circles (roundabouts to us Brits) in Thailand - there are no rules.

[Rule no 2 - see rule no 1]

It sounds like a new mini mall may be coming. The builder, Ying Yong, is the company that owns the old Robinson property on Chayangkun. I also read there might be a 4 story parking garage. Not sure if this is supposed to happen at the old Robinson location or not. Perhaps Michael Hare knows? I think he has some contacts with Ying Yong.

This is a video about the development of a trade route from Da Nang, Vietnam to Dawei (Tavoy), Myanmar which will go through Ubon via a new bridge in Khemarat. This article has some interesting reading about regional trade development too.

 

 

Good information about these developing trade routes from Vietnam through Laos, into Thailand and through to Myanmar. 

 

I was in Amphur Nong Sung, Mukdahan province last week inspecting our grass seed crops. I got a big surprise when driving up in the hills north of Nong Sung. A new 4 lane highway is under construction. Going from Kunchinarai in Kalasin province through to Khamcha-i in Mukdahan province to connect up with the existing 4 lane highway running into Mukdahan. This new highway is to the north of the existing two lane highway 12. It will cut through rubber palm plantations, rice paddies, sugar cane fields and cassava crops. I had seen large photos of the highway on route 12 and thought that the existing road would be widen. However, I was told this would be too costly, with lots of compensation having to be paid out to the number of villages and small towns  lining the road. Much cheaper to pay compensation to the farmers for their land. At the moment rubber plantations and upland crop areas are being bulldozed out of the way. As soon as the rice harvest is over, rice paddy land will be cleared. 

 

The existing route 12 is a very pretty road and in a way it is great that it will remain the same.  The new highway will by pass all villages and towns.

Looks like the old Ying Yong-Robinson site. I will ask. Makes sense to have a parking building as the parking at the former Robinsons was always very tight.
