The Expats Association Of North East Thailand

Recommended Posts

I hope so :o

I live about 40kms outside Korat and would like to meet other expats, other than the cursory hello when walking by eachother in the Mall.

I spend about 2/3rds of my time here and the other 1/3rd back in London.

If you can fill in the gaps about where the meetings are held please do so.

Dereklev: So you didn't like any of the suggested meeting places mentioned in your thread concerning "any go go bars in Korat" (back beginning of Dec 2004)? :D

Ken: between having guests, returning to London and other things like a new born son, no have not had time yet.

Will do so soon, like the sound of the Pasinee you mention in the Korat Bar & Grill thread. Maybe see you there one morning for a beer or two. :D

I would still like to know if anyone knows where the NE Thailand Expats meet :D

Pasinee (Mike's place) for a beer or two sounds good to me. :D

I to wonder about the NE Thailand Expats. Doing a bit of google search I have come up with the following:

4. EXPATS’S ASSOCIATION OF NORTH EAST THAILAND

Object: An association formed to “watch our backs”, provide advice on medical, legal, banking, business etc.

Monthly meeting on the last Saturday of each month.

Venue: NUMBER 1 BAR / RESTAURANT

37/7 Na Muang road

Central Khon Kaen

Website: -

Email: Jim expatne@thai.com

Email: Peter pjreading@hotmail.com

note I found this info at this URL:Expat's Clubs

It looks like there are meetings in Khon Kaen, not Korat.

edit: Oh yea "dereklev", congrats on the new addition to your family.

Khon Kaen is a bit far for me, maybe we can form a breakaway Korat branch for those of us who live in this area :o

Ken: thanks for searching out the info and for your congrats on our new arrival, he is lovely :D

Is there a particular day you go to Mike's Place?????

I can confirm that the NE Expats Association meet on the last Saturday of the month in the Number One Bar in Khon Kaen with the next meeting being tomorrow Saturday 29th Jan.

There was no meeting in December because of Christmas but they did meet up for a Christmas picnic at the Khon Kaen horse race track on race day.

Other than one meeting where they went up to Udon Thani, I don't think I missed a meeting last year. It can be interesting and a chance to meet other farangs, swap notes etc. and it also gives the ladies a chance to meet and gossip about us. Not that they need any encouragement on that score !

There is also an active 10 pin bowling group on a Tuesday evening and there's a few who play cricket too. Not at the same time.

I will make a point of asking the chairman (Geoff) about the web site and post the results here. I remember it being mentioned at the end of November meeting but not what was said.

I went to the meeting last night and asked the secretary, Dave, about the web site. He said they have just changed to a new host and as soon as they have confirmed the name of the new site he will email all members on his list.

As soon as I receive this email I will post the name of the site.

By the way, a few members did turn up at the race track for a Christmas

picnic, but there wasn't a race meet that day!
