When pricing used golf clubs in Udon Thani, I did not find them cheap. It may be worth the trouble of buying a used set at home and packing it with you to Thailand. Maybe I didn't look hard enough. And plain used sets are cheap ($100US) around my US home.

When I was staying at City Lodge I met a few of the locals who played the Udon Thani courses. They invited me to play and had no problem when I advised that I hadn't hit a golf ball in 20 years. Believe the desire to put together a group overrides any irritation about bad play. I haven't golfed yet,...

You might make a copy of your passport and laminate it. Many tourists prefer to carry the copy and leave their passport in a safe. Some also make a copy of their ticket. Don't know if this is effective if your ticket is lost or stolen. I'd recommend you set up a Yahoo or hotmail address and leave it...

Two weeks ago I had a good meal at the night market Picolo Roma. Ambiance and food were good, portions were substantial.

I'll return.

BTW I stayed a month at the (very comfortable) Jan Condotel one block from their old location. I can see why they moved - to far away from falang traffic.

Recently I stayed a week at the Silver Reef and agree with InAsia's comments. The main reason I selected Silver Reef was that they offered FREE wireless internet connection and the location was good. I desire to connect to the internet several hours during the day, waching stocks and reading forums ...

I had dinner at Good Everything restaurant yesterday and again today. It's what the name says - everything about it is good. My companion was a small Thai lady with a large appetite and she was also impressed by our various courses. The two pasta dishes (fettachini with red sauce and speghetti with ...

This old American will join your meeting. I visited Udon Thani last June/July searching for the best place to retire in Thailand. I'm here again for another 6 weeks.

I've been curious as to the total population of Thais and foreigners in Udon Thani City. This would be everyone within the ring road and perhaps those within 5 kilometers outside of ring road. My guess is 200,000.

Anyone know?

It's too bad they didn't use this occasion for a massive issue of thai gold coins as an initial step to place Thailand onto a gold standard. The gold standard (specie) is the only sound money system. However, no government has been able to withstand the temptation of printing free paper money so spe...

Here's the response to my inquiry from Stevo:

JAN Condotel, isn't wireless in your room... but if you bring/buy ethernet cable, you can hook up in your room and use all day for free
Speed is pretty good too.

There's a good review of JAN Condotel in the accomadations section.

Udon Thani sources for wireless connection - where are they?

My recollection is that Irish Clock rooms have wireless capability. Does anyone know of any Udon Thani hotels, cafes, etc. that offer the same. My plan is to be in Udon Thani for a month or more. It is likely that I will spend hours each day online. It would be a substantial savings if I can connect...

The bars opposite the Charoensri Shopping Mall are open day and night, you can do a little bar hopping in there and I'm sure you'll find something to suit your tastes.

Marinated (pickled) mushrooms, especially those seasoned with pizza style hot pepper flakes, would attract my patronage. In the US the delis charge 320B a pound and up for their delicious pickled mushrooms.
