Anyone familiar with the town of Sawang-dan-din on route 22.....or Phang Khon
Posted 2008-07-09 07:24:39
Yeah, I have friends who live near Wanon Niwat and I go to the airport in Sawang Dandin sometimes.

Yes, go to both places quite often but am perplexed as to how to reply to your question.

Sorry for the confused post, but my wife is from the area ( wang )which is approx 12km east from Sawang dan din on R22.......visiting the area on and off over the last 6 years ....wondering any falangs lving in the area...seem like a rarity around there.
No airport in SAWANG.....nearest airports Udon or Sakhon Nakhon both appox time 1.30 each way.

Au contraire, there is a grass strip private airfield in Sawang, 700 metres!

Yes I live about 12kms west of Sawang, a village called Nongluang. Go into to Sawang about twice a week when home.
There are quite a few falangs living in the area,always see at least 4 or 5 at Tesco Lotus.

Yes, It is on the road to Song dao. Haven't been to Chomdao resort yet, there's another place about 1km out of town, turn right if coming from the west at the crossroads by the Bangkok bank, can't remember the name,great food, not expensive.
Also there is a bar in Kings Plaza, owned by a german, went with my mate also tv member, not bad but very slow service.
What is the name of the place next to the police station?? is it a falang bar?
Posted 2008-07-11 05:29:21
wanon niwat......into Phang khon and turn left.....half hours drive?
Posted 2008-07-11 05:46:29
Turning right at bangkok bank thats Chuanthanpanya resort i mentioned above......yes good food,good service and a beautiful laid out resort. Both resorts Vietnamese owned. Bar near police station called JOM NANG ...not falang, owned by a thai girl.
Where in Sawang is german guys bar...

The bar is situated in the Kings Plaza complex, in the centre of town opposite the post office,very near to Udom hi tech centre, at the back,as I said Its ok but not to good on customer service.
I'll check out out JOM NANG next time back which will be begining of september for 2 months.

there is a German guy running "FC Falang pub", has German beer (weisse) and German Menu, 3 internet PC's, pool table etc.
You find his place opposite the new market when you get into SDD from the West and turn left one soi before the traffic light, it's on your left, car parking available. Seems he has a farang team playing football against the local cops.
King Plaza complex, where's that?
I live 30kms West of SDD and don't come often to SDD.
Plan to try the restaurant at Chuanthanpanya resort some day. Thai food mainly or exclusively?
So thyphoon, we're almost neighbours then?
