Re: Road crash survey

driving here since late 97.. Once accident in 2009 when a rear-ended a taxi in traffic down in BKK. My fault. Other than that I've tried to maintain a constant state of alertness and drive defensively. Seems like any time I let that alertness slacken there will be a near miss from a Yon Son car/tuk ...

Re: Udon Thani International Airport

so another airport planned near Bangkok? https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1715903#cxrecs_s Seems it would make better sense to take the five airports identified by AOT as potential international entry/exit points (of which Udon is one) and using good travel statistics bring in internatio...

Re: Chinese Crime Syndicates Target Southeast Asia

clueless artivle. Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia have been "transit" countries for the drugs smuggled out of the Wa area of northern Burma for years. Since everyone knows the area is a haven for the meth labs, lawless, and controlled by narco-terrorists why not a joint ASEAN military op to end the probl...

Re: Welcome to Thailand

I like how they do it Stateside now. When we arrived in Atlanta this last March I was disheartened to see a queue with about 200 American citizens in it with only 3 immigration booths open. I looked over at the Global Traveler kiosks, kind of like the Passport Express shown in the picture above. I h...

ICAO certification, Thai government support to "fix" any issues at Udon, additional budget for Immigrations and Customs officers to staff arriving/departing International flights and of course, airlines that see a profit to be made.. AOT

Mekong to Huay Luang dam connector

I could be wrong but this seems to be the Mekong to Huay Luang pumped/canaled connector talked about for a long time.. If so, it looks like they won't have to worry about Huay Luang reservoir getting low ever again.. That is, barring the 7 Chinese dams and 1 Lao dam on the Mekong cutting off all the...

Re: Noisy Motorbikes.

so the bikes get let out of jail when the owner shows up with a stock muffler and/or the appropriate donation?

Since there's not a whole helluva lot of racing tracks up here in Udon you'd think the cops would be hitting the after market shops that sell the prohibited items..

Re: defunct rail link to cambo reopens

supposedly the Poipet to Phnom Penh railway was completed in March of 2018.. It has issues since it is load restricted with an authorized top speed of 50kph. Add to that a lack of rolling stock and its debatable when it will be open for regular service..[url]https://www.tistr.or.th/events/asean_next...
