Re: Beware of Lazada.

That's information is not entirely correct regarding the use of credit cards. I use my US BOA credit card all the time however the billing address is here in Thailand. Another hurtle to overcome is your browser. Lazada will not accept my CC payment using Firefox but will using IE. Go figure.

Re: Another Country Grounds The 737-MAX

Sorry UM you're not looking at the entire picture. These planes are kept in the air with more than simple maintenance. The airframe and it's components all encounter stress related problems Take for example the US B-52 bomber which has been in operation since the 50's. I would be willing to bet very...

Re: Another Country Grounds The 737-MAX

I certainly have no confidence in Being's ability to correct the problem and train the pilots properly. Boeing knew about this problem long ago but did not include the technology nor pilot training in their 737s unless the airline was willing to pay for it.

Re: Another Country Grounds The 737-MAX

All 737 max planes are now grounded to the best of my knowledge. Are you suggesting that some of Boeings other planes may be affected?

Re: Another Country Grounds The 737-MAX

You certainly won't find me on one of these 737s. Why would anyone trust anything Boeing has to say about the safety of these planes?

Re: Buy a bicycle in Udon?

I think that would depend on what you consider to be decent. I would suggest you visit the bike shop at the 5 way intersection on Prajak Rd. The shop is just opposite the ONLY PTT filling station downtown. the owner's name is Peter and he speaks excellent English.

There are plenty of ATM's scattered throughout Cambodia. What is your planned itinerary? I've cycled through Cambodia by bicycle numerous times and have never had a problem finding an ATM.

Re: Granite Countertops

We used the same place macca described for our countertops, and other interior work. They normally have a good selection to choose from. I seem to recall the slabs are about 1" thick. We added another 1" thick piece along the edge to give it a better appearance (2" thick). They cut the slab to size ...

Re: Buying US Dollars

Once you arrive in Cambodia you'll quickly learn that the ATM's all spit out USD. USD and Cambodian Riel are accepted throughout the country.

Re: Hearing aids

Best to figure out where you'll be able to get the aid serviced here in Thailand before buying. These things take a real beating from the weather here in Thailand. My brother-in-law uses a small drying unit to place his aid in every night to extend its life.

Re: ANYONE KNOW WHERE TO BUY WHITE SPIRIT OR CORRECT THAI NAME

You can buy white spirits (mineral spirits) at any home center (Global House, Home Pro, Home Hub, Thai Watsadu, the large paint store just opposite Global House etc etc etc) here in Udon Thani. Typically sold in quart bottles and gallon cans. I believe this is the Thai name: วิญญาณแร่ at least accor...

I'll have to pay them a visit to see what brands they carry and more importantly can they repair hearing aids locally.

Re: Hearing aids

I believe there's 2 hearing aid shops in Udon. One is located just opposite Landmark Plaza on Udon Dutsadi Road and the other is located at the 3 way intersection of Srisuk Rd and Pho Niyom Rd which is the same road which runs in front of the Udon General Hospital. I've used the second shop to purch...

Re: Central parking

I always park my bike at the rear service entrance (off to the side of the main doors). Easily identified as it has a loading dock and a concrete ramp from the street to the loading dock. Easy to lock up the bike to a steel pipe railing and there's always a security person on the desk. This loading ...

Re: Amman Unique Hotel Udonthani

Wrong place to market a hotel like this unless you plan to bus in visiting muslims. Then again I highly doubt a tour bus could make it down the soi much less pull into the small parking lot. Curious as to where funding for this ill conceived project came from?
