A Night in Nong Khai

Post by ajsp9 » May 16, 2019, 1:14 pm

Thinking of taking a drive up the highway to Nong Khai and spending the day and overnight stay there, so looking for recommendations of places to stay and eat out

Nong Khai Resort Opposite the Railway Station is quite Nice Has A Pool & Can get Some Food there.....

Avoid.....The Pantawee Hotel Although it may suit you If you're looking for Somewhere in Town,But Quite Old & Lots of Farang There...

These are two of my favorites in Nong Khai and both are great values for money spent.

VANA Wellness Resort near Sala Kaew Ku has the nicest pool,which you can enter from your bedroom if you stay on the ground floor,but its about 6km from the centre of town so youll need transport to get to restaurants etc.
Park and Pool Resort near the railway station is also very good (not to be confused with Nong Khai Resort nearby).It has a good pool,decent accomodation and an OK restaurant that does both western and Thai food.
The Crystal Hotel also has good rooms and is nearer the centre of town,but no pool if that is important to you.
Just when I thought our chance had passed,you go and save the best for last.

The pool; accommodations; staff attitude and environment, I consider excellent . Also from 900 Baht for the rooms and from 1100 for the bungalows, both inclusive of breakfast, I have found nothing of comparable value in Nong Khai, during the many years I have been visiting the town regularly, for short holidays

had a night at the " park & pool " resort last night just to check it out , got 1 of the small villas 1020 baht room was fine but the t.v picture and sound was crap , they said having probs with the signal ( no big deal ) was hot enough to use the pool and that was very good , we had diner at hotel restaurant and everything was good apart from the " rack of ribs " they were so BLAND and tasteless .. we had about 5 different dishes plus rice and chips 3 big chang s bill was 1050 baht so that was o.k plus there was a singer on all night . all in all would go back again no problem . sorry forgot breakfast this morning was very good had a cook there to cook your eggs anyway you want them , and when checked out was told you could still use the pool all day today if you wish ...

" Every singe staff member acknowledged customers, even on the path to the pool, with a smile and a swasdee khrap. Every time, every day. They've been trained and they get it. "

And there is the problem .... they've been trained and they get it :roll:

No problem with staff acknowledging that I'm there ..... it's what you tend to get in LOS more times than not, HOWEVER i'd much prefer them not to say anything than to realise that the only reason the gardener is saying hello is because he has been trained and TOLD he has to.

Just the same as EVERY ONE of the MORONS who has been TRAINED to use the phrase "Have a nice day" even when they know full well that you must be fuming mad after the service their company has just provided [-X [-X [-X
