Sign me up for the Buriram/Surin contingent.

I will be starting construction of a house in Huay Ratt this January so will be spending a few months each year in Issan.

As you all probably know, and have read about by now, we are having a party on the 2nd of September, at the FC. I hope to see some of you lads along to sample our ample supplies of free *chang* and :o Archa :D

Have to take a raincheck on that cuzz, land in Bangkok 2nd, will catch up with you though later on in the month........cheers......... :D

I too would be interested. I have a small shoe store and home in NonDindang, Buri-ram. I don't have much interest or in common with Bangkok or Pattaya. I only travel through Bangkok on my way home. I seldom if ever go to Pattaya anymore. I really enjoy broaching subjects about our area and our lifestyles there.

Bring Smudger then.........( unless you are Smudger) :D

Where and what is the FC? If it's near home and Smudger is still "shaggin about" I'll bring him. I'll also see if I can get John to come with us. In that case there would be 4 of us... it would be nice to meet some new fello Farang in the area.

For those of you advocating a split of the Isaan Forum, which provinces do you see being included in each forum (assuming a north and south forum)?

Hi Guys,

I am another Buriram froum member. Not full time but the wife,daughter and I have a house there in the old Moo Baan. Baan Nawk. I think that the idea for the upper and lower Issan forums is a good one.

In my 6 years in BR area I have steadily seen an increase in Falangs. Even a Falang who built a house in our Village, But I was the first. I have got to believe that the area is receiving more Falangs than ever before.

I was watching a Travel channel special on Thailand and they showed scenes of Bangkok and then Phanom Rung. Of all the places outside of Bkk they chose Phanom Rung. We have all seen those nice signs in English welcomiong the tourist to Buriram City and the improvements around the lake in the center of town. I feel that in the future Buriram will be on the tourist map.

LL

I think a forum is a damm good idea, as the population is on the increase, i have been coming to buriram for 12 years now, and also was the first ferang to build a house in our village, 1999,there are now 4 more ferrang houses, 3 western style one thai style, i always remember my first years in Buriram, all the kids would touch your skin, it was like been in a circus, the kids use to go wild if they saw a ferrang, and everybody wanted to see him, but now this does not happen to often, but it is the best place on earth, also you can never get better mates as in essarn, all the ferrangs i know would help each other out if there was a problem, you would not get this back home in the UK.

I gave a rough outline earlier in this topic.

And Soic we're in Surin. Try to bring Richard from Lahan Sai as well. And if you still do not know where we are, click on the FC link at the top of every Isaan page

Well 64 hits now 65.

Up-Date on Burriram area, rain rain, but today very hot.

Book and Bed is still going strong with good thai/Farang food opposite is the 'Be my Guest bar' not frequented very much. Of course the Bamboo bar is still going not my cup of tea though.

Nice Bar type Restaurant situated round the corner from the Thapnakon next to the Michelin Garage.

More soon

I'll see if we can find him. I'm sure that Smudger will have an idea, it seems that almost everyone knows him or vise versa. My friend and I will be there on the 29th, but will be stuck in BKK working with Sunbelt for at least 2 days before we can go home. We've been anxious to get home for a while... Everyday in Iraq is a day too many.

Indeed, very hot and wet today.

This area is also very handy for Visa runs, I had to do one this morning and the people at Chong Chom are friendly and helpful.

Plus, it's my Birthday today.... so, don't expect much sense out of me later (not that I generally make much sense anyway :o )

:D:D:D

I think that would make it qualify, but it isn't my decision ...... I have a funny story about Satuk... but I don't have enought working fingerd left to make the triping any sense :o (that's a joke BTW, I'm perfectly capable of typing the words,'enough', 'fingers' and 'typing'.... oops ... just did one of those in these parenthesis without even noticing until the end)

Mr L ... i don't drink and drive, well I do, but I don't drive incapacitated, are there any decent, but reasonably priced, hotels within a shouting distance of the FC (I am farang kee neeow, when faced with a choice of driving home after a party, or just getting my head down a walk or tuk-tuk distance away I would prefer to do that)

But I aint pating no toorist prises :D:D:D

Depends what you want.....we have around 25 hotels in Surin now. The one that everyone uses, is a real **** hotel in the bus station, about 150 yds from the FC. It only takes my customers about an hour to stagger home. That is 800 a night. On ther other end of the scale is the Amarin. 280 I think for a fan room. That is also quite near us. There are plenty in between those two prices. Check out Hotels on my web site at the top of the page.
