I would appreciate it if anyone can help/advice regarding removal/killing of geckos inside the house. I know they control insects etc but I have an intense dislike for gecko cr@p on the bedding.
Try this.

The two Mr D.I.Y. outlets in Udon and the one in Nong Han are also comparatively busy. They're almost like the US's Dollar Stores without the food and toiletries.
I noticed one has opened up at The Udon fresh veg and fruit market as well.I enjoy pottering around in them.

Have they downsized their floor space yet like many flagship Tesco-Lotus branches nationwide have done?
Yes,and one of those DIY stores (which also appears to have customers in it all the time)opened up in the space they reduced.

VT is a great example of a restaurant that maintains a high standard of service and food quality.

This business model/product stands head and shoulders above anything else I have seen in Thailand.

The Chinese haven't stopped migrating to Thailand.
