Book Value of Used Cars in Udon

The used car websites in Bangkok give a good indication of asking price: http://taladrod.com/w20/Search/DashBoard.aspx There is a redbook (http://www.redbookasiapacific.com) that operates on a pay per report bAsis. The car market seems fairly thin in Udon. You may have better luck looking for a used...

Swimming Pool in West Udon

Unfortunately there is a large construction project going on @ BB Resort. Acquaintance who lives in one of the old VOA houses across from the pool told me there still are no chairs, other than the old broken down ones poolside. Construction noise, traffic and workers milling around detracts from usi...

Watch 2014 Olympics Live...How?

If you accept that modern hockey means skates on your feet, stick in your hands and a puck on the ice, Wikipedia would credit the 1875 tournament in Montreal which featured a puck for the first time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ice_hockey Looks like ball hockey was played in certain parts of Canada...

Easy Golf Course and Basic Instruction Near UT

Would anyone have an update golf instructors in Udon? I know there is one working out of Sri Thani GC, but that is an hour drive for us living 15 km north of Udon.

Would anyone know if there is a good Thai or Falang instructor working out of Nong Samrong GC or the Airport? Thanks ! GT

Dual citizen

If Nick hold a Cnd PR card, as most landed immigrants do, he can apply for Canadian citizenship after residing 3 years in a 4 year period in the country and pass the other requirements (Cnd knowledge test, English/French language proficiency test etc). So, it is a voluntary application. The only aut...

Dual citizen

My understanding is that while Canada allows dual citizenship, the USA doesn't. I was also told that Canada doesn't recognize forced "renouncement's" of Canadian citizenship by countries not permitting dual citizenship. So you may have to be very discrete with US authorities if you intend to continu...

Legal advice sought

I, unfortunately, was through something like this in Isaan a few years ago. I can emphasize with what this action on your wife's part must be doing to you. You have some very, very tough but important decisions to make. Don't think me an external pessimist based on what I think are the hard realitie...

Diving in Thailand

Aardvark - have you tried this at ningaloo whale sharks? 12,000 baht for a one day trip is a little steep. However, when you consider the aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia (which amazingly has a whale shark tank) charges about $US 250 for a tank swim with them, Ningaloo is looking "in the ballpark" for p...

Diving in Thailand

Over the last 10 years, I've been fortunate to have had the chance to dive all over Thailand and Myanmar looking for the elusive whale shark. I would agree with the previous posters, Thailand is wonderful for learning, still has some great reef diving with some unusual small sea life to find, but la...

A little more from the article in Wiki Parrot quoted might help understand why some Thai's feel they got the shaft. "In 1907 the Thai-Cambodian border was mapped by the French on behalf of a bilateral border commission. According to the 1904 agreement, the border would follow the natural watershed b...

How much for labour to build perimeter wall ?

My cost in 2011 was 1,200/meter for materials and 600/meter for labour. All in 1,800/baht a meter. Based on other work done in 2013, I would expect materials have gone up about 20% in the intervening two years. No angle supports and all 196 linear meters of it is still fine after 3 rainy seasons.
