Re: Housing Projects

LE CELLINI PHASE TWO START FROM 7.9 MB Just saw advertisment, 15 houses in phase two starting from 7.9 million baht. Same common amenities as the homes costing 12-14 million baht in phase one, just scaled down a bit in size and interior materials used. I seldom see farangs looking at Le Cellini, tho...

Re: THE IRISH CLOCK

Sunday my first day back from abroad, I may have appeared like the croutchity old farang. The Clock has one of the nicer atmospheres in town, so is a pleasant oasis to visit. As we sat down in a booth facing the bar, I commented on the many new faces among the Clock staff, Mali said they are neices ...

Re: Housing Projects

Update on various housing projects? Are there any new developments? For those with a budget say up to 4 million, look at Sittarom on the ring road near Big C. Le Cellini has a new model house with interior and garden in a very different style than the first, curiousity seekers should have a look. Th...

Re: DUI and BIB

Agree with Jimbo, no drinking and driving period. Reason enough motorcycles passing on all sides with students and babies, and on top are plenty of yahoos with cars and trucks and their fancy driving, running red lights, leap frogging to get one car length ahead before the next stoplight, and aggres...

Re: Lunch buffet at Centara Hotel

My wife and I enjoyed the Centara Buffet today. It is the best in Udon and on par with many in Bangkok and certainly with most four star hotels, perhaps a bit shy of five star hotels however as not quite the food selection of a ShangriLa or Sheraton Sukumvit. Was a pleasant surprise to us both and w...

IM DEE BUFFET REPLACES GREEN LEAF

The Green Leaf lunch buffet appeared to be a "loss leader" in the hope customers would repeat visits at night for the more profitable meals and drinks. Green Leaf could not sustain the loss on the lunch if their evening business was not generating enough profits. In members reviews, I posted "Im Dee...

Re: Current Housing Developments in Udon

Anyong-Oseyo Buellduc. Look at Housing Projects discussion farther down in the index, where attempts made to stimulate comparisons of different estates, and including mention of various housing projects at the mid to high end. Pertinent info to you rather depends on your budget, as price ranges can ...

Re: Greenleaf Restaurant

LUNCH BUFFET NO MORE Sadly, effective March 16 Greenleaf will no longer have the 89 baht lunch buffet, so will open from 16h00 rather than at 11h00. According to the management there are not enough patrons to keep the lunch buffet profitable. Sorry to lose the mostly good food at only 89 baht per pe...

Re: Housing Projects

LONG TERM MAINTENANCE OF HOUSING ESTATES Owners must pay common area fees to maintain the estate. The developer sells houses and they do not include in the price "perpetual maintenance." If owners pay annually and actively manage the state with a committee, the assets are protected and will go up in...

Re: Housing Projects

Am pleased this Housing Projects subject is getting some input, though would like to see more specific information about actual housing estates, if there is any. When I first starting scouting property in Udon ten years ago, a local farang friend took me to see some estates, and once I went with FBI...

Re: Housing Projects

Looks like a nice area. The one I visited has a small clubhouse with pool and already has a few hous...

Re: Hyundai H1 Van - owner reviews?

Correction from my visit to Hyundai yesterday: to date they sold 70 H1 vans around Udon region, making them the nation's second largest seller of this van. I think the #1 comment was either from his staff or my bad memory.

Re: Hyundai H1 Van - owner reviews?

He said this #1 comment a couple months ago, so let's say this was one year into selling the van, during which time he said he sold something like 30, 2.5 units per month is not a wild fugure. In Bangkok most van buyers have the Benz, VW or Alphard,/Vellfire which all seem a dime a dozen there thoug...

Hyundai H1 Van - owner reviews?

Am considering a Hyundai H1 van, we want the space for long trips and for when too many people or too much stuff to fit in the Fortuner which seems small with two child seats plus three adults seated. H1 costs less than 1.4MB compared to more than 3 MB for a van from Benz, VW or Alphard/Vellfire. Am...

Re: A good barber shop

Very decent 70 baht haircut by male barber in small shop on same road as Ton Koon Hotel, opposite side and past Thai Airways office toward Prajak Road. He has decades experience. Had a bad cut in the big shop near Karin Hotel, probably luck of the draw as the impressive row of barbers in their color...

Re: Housing Projects

LE CELLINI, HAPPY BEYOND EXPECTATIONS Last week we moved into our new house in Le Cellini. We took a leap of faith and bought off plan in October 2007 months before even the showhouse was complete. Buying early allowed us a choice land plot and also to make changes to the interior layout to suit our...

What are the top 3-5 housing projects in Udon Thani, their price ranges, and how do they compare in quality and value and location? Are the...
