Re: Udon Thani International Airport

Seems there's been a few attempts at direct international flights......?Bangkok Air? to Seoul......another airline to Singapore. Both were short lived.....I thought because of a lack of demand. It's only a matter of time before it happens.....the newer generation isn't going to want to fly south to ...

While the city has grown, I'm not aware of any significant increase in reservoir capacity at Huai Luang. Some new living quarters for the...

Re: Shopping Today

For some reason Ngeesoon seems to offer more freebies than other stores. The other big chains offer them, but not as often....it seems.
