'Billy' Graham comes to Udon

On Sunday evening America's Fox News Channel aired Billy Graham's final presentation to the world. It's a simple 28 minute message that all need to watch. You can view it here: http://video.foxnews.com/v/2817785481001/my-hope-america-with-billy-graham/ semperfiguy, I don't mean to put the onus on y...

Why I have no interest in learning Thai

I find it amusing that many Australians complain about multi culturalism and say that migrants do not bother to learn English. I have no knowledge of American complaints, but suspect that the situation would likely be the same. My take on the matter is that if you live in a country for some years an...

Ya can't fix stupid...another example

I find it most amusing that semperfigguy complains about the assistant at BIG C and then spells aisle "isle". Which isle was it, The Isle of Jersey or perhaps Jamaica? Now to me that's real stupid, bothering to write a post because the guy left an"A" off. I am sure most of us English speaking membe...

Steroids reduce sexual drive and shrink the testicles. Not the other way around.

The best shops for wine and spirits are Vansom and Baravin. They do not sell copy scotch.

I believe they will not sell you a ticket if you don't have a visa. You could go by train to Nongkai though and get a visa at the Friendship Bridge, or else take the train right through to Thanaleng in Lao and get your visa there.

"if you are not going to Vientiane then they are worth a visit" That is true, but why would you not come to Vientiane for a day if you are already on the border. By the way, Vang Vieng is definitely worth a visit these days. Booze must be really dear in Thailand these days. How much is a decent, (dr...

Two places I would suggest that you try:
Vansom Wine shop
Baravin
They are in the same road as the Lao Plaza Hotel, on the opposite side, on the way to the morning market.
I am off to LOS in a week or so. I am taking my own booze.

Rick's post is incorrect. A photo is necessary.
I will also say that if you think the duty free shops are worth a look, then things must be awfully expensive in Udon these days. Liquor and cigarettes are cheaper in town.

need a visa for Vientiane ?

I agree in that I would not take the car. The traffic is very bad here now. I would suggest you don't go on Saturdays. The queues are bad at the border - go on a Monday if you can.

Don't think they will sell you a ticket to do this. You could ask at the bus station.
