International Schools Udonthani feedback

> Although I am not based in Udon, I have tutored 2 students from grade 3 at Udon Thani International school.

Just exchange 'at' with 'of', then most probably it meets what he wanted to say. Well, that post is from a teacher, so never expect 100% correct statements... :mrgreen:

Iphone Repair

Well, I am the first to agree that they all suck. But the point about the 'official' authorized service center is that when you deal with Apple this gives you a local point to handle hardware issues which are covered under Apple's warranty. Without them you would have to go to Khon Kaen. For example...

Iphone Repair

Just for the record: the official authorized Apple service center, formerly found in UD Town opposite Wine Society, is now in Central Plaza, where the computer shops like JB etc are found.

Test your listening ability

Nice link - thanks. And don't believe any of the psychos that claim to hear 5 or 6 out of 6 in the comment section.

T.V wall brackets

And they are all completely overpriced. As if they are all imported with a hefty luxury fee. I mean this is just dumb metal and we are living in Asia. How can this have the same prices as in western states where it has the (obvious) accessory fee added?

24th visa extension with some hard lessons

If you are married to a Thai you can always go to Savannakhet in Laos and get a multi entry non 0 visa that can last you for up to 15 months.No proof of income is required but you will have to stay overnight in Savannakhet and pick up the visa the next day. Can you please give some more details as ...

24th visa extension with some hard lessons

That would be one step too far. It would be ok already to grant what you get in other countries. For example my wife, because she is my wife, has permanent (!) residency permit in Germany. She could (could...) even work there, and is registered for social health care and taxes. No photos, tea money ...

24th visa extension with some hard lessons

I said it before and I happily repeat it: the Thai marriage visa is the most stupid and embarrasing way to stay in this country. Why you allow them to make a fool out of you?

The retirement visa seems to cause much less trouble and doesn't make you feel like an idiot. IMHO.

Thai smile

You did not point out the real bummer: no matter how much you pay you sit in the same plane! You pay expensive for a Thai Airways flight only to find out that this is a Thai Smile flight and you should have got it for 50% less! Note also that Thai Smile now have their own counter at the Udon airport...

Mini Water Park (Nakhaburi Resort)

Slides? Then forget both and go to Usotel near the old Tesco. Steep entry fee of 250 Baht, but the slides are worth it, all ages, from 120 cm up, plus baby pool playground and good food/drinks (no Est, real Coke).

Internet from Home Cable/TOT

No Udon Home Cable Internet in First Home, they said. So it seems I am currently stuck with the True **** performance driving me nuts nearly every day. The really crazy thing is: if nothing works (once again) I connect my phone to my computer and use AIS 3G instead. That worked each time so far. Not...

Laptop AC Adapter, Power Supply and Cord for Acer Aspire

That must have been some years ago :D Still Thailand (Udon?) has its sorts of quirks. When my son cracked the 5.5 mm DC connector (not the cable, not the electronics) of his Asus notebook's external power supply, I had to learn that you can NOWHERE buy such a connector and solder it on yourself. The...

Internet from Home Cable/TOT

At this time the international gateway seems to be a real bootleneck again. While before only parts of the world were slow out of Thailand, at this time (once again...) everything is. That is from a True customer who had been happy for about a year - when they had less customers. Time to move on (on...

Udon Water World.

This must be the best kept secret of Udon at this time. Went there yesterday with the family and it is pure paradise for the kids. It is also very nice for the parents, as the restaurant has plenty of choice and (IMHO) very good quality in what they do. Later in the afternoon you can see groups of p...
