I hope I am wrong but that eastern exit from Nong Han ( and the U turn to Tesco Lotus ) is now looking very dangerous. Maybe just for the first few days after Tops opens but some real assholes today ( driving up the carriageway past the slip way then diving into the right turn blocking both east bound lane traffic and people trying to turn into Nong Han.) Guess what was missing? The BIB, maybe having lunch with the GIK's.

Surely this has got to be a win win for nonghan,its only been about 3 years since theyve discovered the wheel?

You need to have a look at yourself Taxi. Some really good schools, not bad fresh markets and supermarkets. Not the same crazy traffic as the BIG CITY. All in All not bad for the sticks.

A big improvement over the next-doors Tesco, 5555
But chaos indeed, was lucky to park my car at a corner spot.
They reserved parking space for VIPS and a had a kids air castle taking up space, very smart for an opening day....
Big supermarket, nice, modern, would still be smaller than the Kumpawapi Tesco.
Potatos were 35B, carrots 17, Tipco juices at normal 69B but buy 2 get 1 free, thus at 46B the best tipco deal ever (53 at Makro). Bought a Cubic multigrain small bread at 69B, not worth the money, will continue with 99B dark Big C bread on my Saturday morning Big C shopping (they have excellent frozen vegs France import around 140/150B kg)
Eggs were 75B for 30, guess opening promotion...
Not impressed by bread station, only saw 2 kinds of baguette, no real fresh bread, only Thai pastries.
No farang food so to speak, weak cheese choice, weak cold cuts.
If the usual thai items are similarly priced as next doors Tesco I will choose Tops.

Opening days are chaos, will visit again after next Monday school closing.
We arrived there before lunch time, when we got out cars were parked everywhere, after a Bangkok style U-turn tentative with 50 cars wanting to U-turn a cop must have shown up, keeping the green rigth turning light on for at least 30 cars. And indeed the east side Nong Han exit is a death trap with cars trying to do a U-turn there towards Tops and Tesco, blocking the oncoming traffic towards Sakon Nakhon.

I stopped for food at the Mobil petrol station opposite Tops and their parking was overloaded as well.

Tops open in Nonghan

Popped in at the Tops Superstore today Saturday at 10h15, parking lot was very busy but inside can cope as it is huge. Has a nice covered mall area with many independent shops, including KFC, Mister Donut, Daeng Namneung from Nongkhai, B2S and many more. I would think Udon city could handle 3 or 4 or 5 of these places around town.

Did not see any coffee shop though perhaps has one. A splendid "OK Coffee" is across the street at the Esso station where parking is easy too.
