Re: tesco plans to leave thailand

Tesco stores in Thailand make more profit than the UK Stores.
They are considering selling only if the un-named 3rd Party makes a very good offer to buy them out.

A bus passed by today: UDON - SAKOL NAKORN it said on the side of the bus.
And, so it is, reason #6129 for learning to read Thai
Please enlighten me
What did it say on the side of the bus in English.
It must have been written in Thai.

New Bus Service Don Muang Airport

There is a new bus service connecting Don Muang with the Green Line BTS. This should make getting into Bangkok a lot easier & quicker. It is only about 10 km from the Airport to Kasersart Station and the bus goes along the expressway (see map below). https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1809...

Re: RooJai Car and Motorbike Insurance

Just claimed my 1000 baht voucher.
You can choose PT or Susco.
I received a 10 digit number on my phone.
Do you just show this number at the garage to claim the fuel.

Re: Dead Man's Curve

Now I know where you mean. IMHO the only solution would be to install anti speed bumps. Drivers whether Thai or Falang do not take notice of warnings of signs for dangerous driving conditions or Hazards. They do not abide by speed restriction signs. The Speed bumps (Sleeping Policeman as they are ca...

Re: Overpass/tunnel Udon Ringroad Nongkai Hwy

Another problem is if you are travelling from Nong Khai & want to do a U Turn to go to Nong Samrong you have to sit in line with the traffic going to Tesco or Airport.

They have put the ONLY U Turn about 50 Meters from the Traffic Lights instead of at least 150 meters before the lights.
