6.  Sports massage place (no happy endings a real sports therapy shop)
7.  A book store where i can get my children books in English

-> Home Pro just out of the city center will have what you are looking for.

5.  I have a 90 day o visa based upon marriage it expires in January, what do i need to do when it expires.

-> You need to apply for an extension of stay based upon marriage at KK Immigration.

1// Your Passport + copies of every page

2// 2 passport size photos

3// Marriage Certificate

4// KorKor 22

5// Letter from Phu Yai Baan stating that you are married + his blue book copy + his ID card copy + his government official card copy

6// Your wife ID card + Blue Book

7// 400,000 THB in a Thai Bank for 2 months: letter from bank stating that you have more than 400,000 THB in your account.

8// Book bank updated on the day of application showing more than 400,000 THB in your account.

(you can also show 40,000 baht of income per month from abroad )

9// Maps to your house

10// 3 photos of you and your family in front of the house showing the house number, in the back and in the living room (not a joke)

11// Witness + his/her blue book + ID Card

Seems like a lot of work, but it isn't so hard.

6.  Sports massage place (no happy endings a real sports therapy shop)

-> Fitness First if you want top of the line stuff

7.  A book store where i can get my children books in English

-> Asia Books or order online (amazon, etc)

10. 1080P HD Web cam with microphone compatible with Windows 10

-> IT Complex in the city or Central Khon Kaen will have this.

It's a "tukcom", the usual mix of mobile and electronic/computer stuff.

Opposite the Kosa hotel.

But at Central you will also find and it's more "fancy" than the somewhat worn out tukcom.

Many other small computer shops scattered around town.

 

For the question on marriage extension:

if you need further explanations (though the above list looks good), better open a separate thread in the Thai visas... forum.

Generally Khon Kaen immigration works well without harassing "extra" requirements.

As said you need to apply for an extension of stay. You can do it during the last 30 days of your 90 day entry.

Here is my list of documents required which might closer to what will be needed at Khon Kaen immigration. Marriage Extension Requirements.pdf

1.  I need a pediatric dentist?  Any recommendations are most appreciated.

 

Most hospitals even the small ones have dentists there a lot of the time, My wife and her children go there at BangFang 20 kms west of KK, and best of all its almost free

When you are ready for some books, check out...    http://www.dasabookcafe.com/

They have a tremendous range, all catalogued on XL spread sheet. Included are instructions how to order.

I've used them several times. Very fast & efficient & prices extremely reasonable.

Hope this helps.

Cheers.....     Mal.

3.  Tutor for my 7 year old, must have masters degree in education.

 

Are you new to the area? Just asking as I think you may be setting your sights a bit high. Do you mean private tutor?

 

4.  a pre school for my three year old.  She only speaks English.

 

There is a bilingual school there. Not sure if they do pre school. At 3 years old she will have no problem picking up Thai very quickly. Are you planning on staying in Thailand for the long haul? If so a Thai speaking school with some English would be better.

Re non o in Jan you have option above for extension based on marriage  or savannakhet for another visa based on marriage. Lots of thrwads on here refrence that. Plus your 90 day now if you haven't already you can extend that by 60 days based on visiting wife at KK imigration. one form photo 1900 bht and wifes blue book and ID photo copies passport normal. plus wife has to be with you. if you need a bit longer to sort your stuff out. it's an option.

yes a private tutor, particularly in mathematics.  Yes we plan on staying in Thailand.  I will check with Bangkok hospital in Khon kaen and see what they have for dentists.  Thanks for the Immigration O advise along with the link for books.

Thanks for the Home Pro tip on a mattress. I have been looking for one to for years, but never thought to look their. Anybody know if there is one in Udon Thani with the same Pillow Top Mattress?

Memory foam matress toppers there ok but go for a decent thickness. I find them very hot to sleep on. I quite like a firm mattress  but the old knees don't so I buy normal scatter cushions and have one in bed slap it between the knees before sleep works a treat.Home pro have the thin type never seen a decent thickness one. try this website
