Re: Lotus blossom lake

We went last weekend and were pleasantly surprised. I had no idea it was so popular - I had expected a lay-by with a few boatmen waiting around, but it was a full-on tourist circus with a tarsealed carpark the size of a footy field and about 200 matching boats. We opted for the 500 baht ticket, whic...

Re: Royal Project Veggies and Fruit

I bought a haul of these veggies to bring back to Vientiane. They tasted great, but I was a little alarmed to find that the red peppers (capsicum) I bought were still in perfect condition 2 weeks later - not a wrinkle. I can only imagine it was the Royal blessing that made them stay fresh this long,...

Lotus blossom lake

Hi - I am a long term resident of Vientiane and enjoy a big-city escape to Udon every couple of months. Does anybody know if the famous lake covered in flowers is in blossom yet? The wife wont shut up about it. Thanks

CCTV security?

Is there a shop in Udon that sells, and is knowledgeable about household CCTV set-ups? I know places like Homepro & Home Ideal sell them, but I am hoping for more of a specialist shop with an owner who knows what he is talking about, so that he can explain it all to someone with not much knowledge o...

Large mirrors?

Does anyone know where I can buy large bathroom mirrors in Udon with bevelled edges - especially any places that either make mirrors to order or can take orders to be made. I am looking for at least 1.2 x 0.8m and I haven't seen these sizes in places like Home Pro.
Thanks

Re: scorpions and snakes

A couple of years ago my 2 year old boy got stung by a scorpion whilst we were staying in a village in Savannakhet province, Laos - he was screaming blue murder. All the local old women came round to see what the noise was about and said we had to go and see the local healer. We all went to the othe...

Does anyone know if direct buses run from Aranyaprathet to Udon, or do you have to go via Bangkok or Khon Kaen? Thanks

Only in Thailand ..maybe NOT .

They swarm at this time of year every year. In Laos & Cambodia people put bowls of water or sheets under fluorescent lights to catch them, and fry them up as a snack.

UD Self Storage (Sponsor)

Hi, Can you receive freight on my behalf and store it if I pay in advance? I live in Laos and want to bring about 6m3 of personal effects to Udon, where I can collect them over say 6 months in my car and take back to Laos. The NZ freight company will deliver to you, but I don't know if you would acc...

Freight service from NZ to Udon?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a sea freight company that can take a part-container from Auckland NZ to Udon, and then store it for a month or two. I would come from Vientiane over several trips to collect it. Firms offering to take freight all the way to Vientiane are very expensive due to t...

Changing details on a Thai birth certificate

Sorry correction - we just went to Udon again to collect the certified translation. The office is PW Translations, Prachoom Wittaya school, 75 Udondusadee Rd, web www.pwtranslations.com
They do all kinds of certified trranslations for good prices.

Changing details on a Thai birth certificate

My wife went, not me, but she said the office was in the pedestrian open air shopping area right next to UD town food hall area. The translation service will translate any documents, not just docs associated with this office - I think it was just a translation service that the office chooses to use.

Changing details on a Thai birth certificate

To follow up for anyone interested in future - Aek Udon were no help, but it was easy to get the name changed at a government office near UD Town. They added the name to the original birth certificate by hand, signed and stamped it. It took half a day. We also got a certified translation into Englis...

Lee - how did you get on in the end. An old thread I know, but I am trying to do something similar. My wife is Lao but our child (now 3) was born at Aek Udon and received a Thai birth certificate.

Regal Mega Mall City Laos

The Regal Mega Mall has folded before it got started and the investors left Laos. They were relying on getting lots of tenants paying in advance of building and that didn't happen. Not surprising really - Vientiane needs a supermarket but not a large luxury mall. Most shop owners here can't even aff...
