Re: Hearing aids

I'll have to pay them a visit to see what brands they carry and more importantly can they repair hearing aids locally.

Re: Hearing aids

I believe there's 2 hearing aid shops in Udon. One is located just opposite Landmark Plaza on Udon Dutsadi Road and the other is located at the 3 way intersection of Srisuk Rd and Pho Niyom Rd which is the same road which runs in front of the Udon General Hospital. I've used the second shop to purch...

Re: Central parking

I always park my bike at the rear service entrance (off to the side of the main doors). Easily identified as it has a loading dock and a concrete ramp from the street to the loading dock. Easy to lock up the bike to a steel pipe railing and there's always a security person on the desk. This loading ...

Re: Amman Unique Hotel Udonthani

Wrong place to market a hotel like this unless you plan to bus in visiting muslims. Then again I highly doubt a tour bus could make it down the soi much less pull into the small parking lot. Curious as to where funding for this ill conceived project came from?

Re: Amman Unique Hotel Udonthani

Ostentatious is the first and only word which came to mind after touring the place. The hotel had been under on and off construction for several years and appeared to be abandoned for a long time. They have only 1 restaurant no swimming pool, fitness center, sauna, or spa but are trying to command p...

Re: Amman Unique Hotel Udonthani

I wouldn't stay there for free and the rooms are hardly even close to free. They forgot to add no alcohol or pork served in the restaurant. I toured the place which is situated on a small soi and came away with a one word description - ostentatious!

Re: Whole house water filter

The Udon city water system is a low pressure system which will more likely draw in contaminates from the area it's traveling through than a high pressure system which is used in developed countries. Considering the routing of the lines through the grey water system running along the roads and the hi...

None of the water filters described here will provide clean bacteria free drinking water other than the one described by Kopkei. All water must be treated with either chlorine, UV light, Ozone or by boiling before drinking to destroy bacteria and other microorganisms. The filters described here will...

Re: Income Letter

My sentiments exactly!! Three embassies have already stated that they cannot certify income. Sounds to me like the only alternative is put the required funds in a Thai bank unless TI changes their requirements. I wouldn't hold my breath.

The O-A visa is a non-immigrant visa based on retirement. No need to convert it after you arrive here.

Re: Udon Museum

I toured the museum with a group of Thai students I was helping with their English before it was renovated. It's all about the history of Udon Thani and Thailand in general. The staff were really very gracious and took us around the museum which was quite interesting. I would suspect it will be esse...

the still vacant lot at the 4way intersection, just down from Beyond Cafe, was where criminals were executed....long ago. That could be why the piece of land remains vacant to this day.

I toured the museum prior to its refurbishment and can confirm there was nothing in there regarding the Vietnam War or the US presence in Udon Thani during the period.
