Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Anything is better than going via either of the BKK airports - also flying to Hanoi or Luang Prabang as examples, you fly down to BKK only to fly back over Udon, what a waste ! So what percentage of the Thai and/or Expat population, in Udon and surrounds, would you expect want to fly to Hanoi or Lu...

Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Seems there's been a few attempts at direct international flights......?Bangkok Air? to Seoul......another airline to Singapore. Both were short lived.....I thought because of a lack of demand. It's only a matter of time before it happens.....the newer generation isn't going to want to fly south to...

Re: Lone Star News *Trigger Warning*

HOAX Alarmism. True, but the fact that some people exaggerate doesn't mean that climate change isn't a problem. As I've said before, we need credible, reliable, scientifically sound data. Climate change is a NATURAL OCCURRENCE which has affected the worlds development over 4.5 Billion years. Any, h...

Re: Technical Problems

Haven't seen any of the problems JS and others are reporting just recently.

All I can confirm is the "Ajax Error" which had 'dogged me' over the passed 12 months has definitly gone away!

Happy days.

Re: Something wrong with my Udon Map settings or Computer?

Well there's a positive!

Since these latest complications raised their ugly head and have been repaired so has my dreaded AJAX Error (mark forums read) that I have complained about over the last year!

Re: schools obsessed with uniforms

Yep my 24 yo step daughter wore a uniform right up to the time she graduated last year. She did 2 internships in her final year with a bank and NOK Air where she (we) had to buy uniforms for them as well? (hated being with NOK!). Bottom line = 5 years of tertiary education, books, uniforms, accommod...

Re: 800k in thai bank for extending retire visa

I think I am correct in claiming bank pass books can be renewed at any branch these days so maybe bank statements are easier as well. For future reference. A bit off topic. Yes, that does apply to the KasikornBank:- Over the years I have obtained a new passbook, ATM Card and Statements from the Ban...

Re: Medical Insurance For 1 year O-A Visa Holders

If someone (on a retirement visa) has 800K baht in their Thai bank account, one might think that would give a good indication that they can afford to cover most medical situations that might arise and might thus obviate the need for medical insurance. Though I realise that logic doesn't always appl...

Re: Medical Insurance For 1 year O-A Visa Holders

To the best of my knowledge, there's nothing official yet. As always with immigration details, there are lots of rumors/conjecture but nothing yet signed-sealed-delivered. Well said, the Insurance companies will try to screw the pooch. I advise you ALL to read (STUDY) this thread before panicking! ...

From my experience it usually indicates the a#*ehole is going to take your half the road = make your own arrangements! Although of late they are warning on coming vehicles of police road block ahead for license checks etc.

Re: Deep water drilling - Udon- Bandung-Lau Luang

When I had ours done one of the guys pulled out 2 bits of wire and started walking around. I basically told him to stop effing around and start drilling where I wanted it. He laughed! I'm sure it was an act to impress superstitious Thais and naive Farang.

Re: Children dieing in Thailand on teh Roads

Internal bickering here does not do anything to fix the problem - the fault lies directly on the shoulders of the parents passing down their bad habits to the kids and the BiB for NOT enforcing the laws of the land.

all depending how deep the ground water is located , you must put enough pvc casing pipe down , fe if the groundwater is at 10 m during the rain season , put at least 5 pipes down (20m) , as earth moves some wells collapse and close and you will have a sandbank ...no water ..., or your suction pipe...
