Re: charoen hotel

It seems the better option for us as a family is to venture out from the main centre as there are a lot of mixed opinions on the hotels in udon,plus the fact having a young family would be better to stay away from the noise and use a taxi in or out if we fancy some action or late nights :D

Re: Christmas dinner in udon

Looks to me like the Irish clock gets the vote for Christmas dinner.As I've never been there I'm wondering do they have facilities for small children like a play area inside,and do they have high chairs?.And finally do they do child menus? :D

Re: Christmas dinner in udon

Well i think all the udonmap members should get together on Christmas day at a restaurant large enough to enjoy the day.It would be a good opportunity to meet everyone.

Re: 150 Baht ATM Fee FOR WHAT?

I think the best way to use my uk account in thai is to transfer funds which will cost about 25pounds and during my stay use the wifes atm card to withdraw for free.
