  1. Issan Holiday

    Come visit Buriram. It has changed a lot since I first visited in April 1989. I came out here to live permanently in January 1998. The population was listed as 35,000 people in the city. Now it is well over 200,000. New roads, bridges, entertainment centers--a great Thai football team, an F3 racing track. Thai Grandprix is scheduled for February 2018. Some very nice hotels" Amari, Best Western, Alvarez, Princess Sita. Amari's food is extremely delicious. Three western shopping malls-- Robinsons, Taweetkit and Big C. My son is the night manager at Amari. Had some friends stay there for a week this past month and they were very pleased. When we first arrived there were only 2 flights per week. Now soon to have 12 flights per day. To me Buriram is home. There's no place like home
  2. Go fund me? - Go fund yourself.

    we tried gofundme to help construction costs for a sports center for indigent children. we did not get a single donation from it but we did get help and the facility is in operation. used by 12 schools free of charge. my friends provided the money. still helping thousands of children here in buriram.
  3. Backwater to boomtown: Buriram emerges as sporting paradise

    it has been considered but it was deemed to not be profitable enough to justify the investment.

    seating capacity of Thundercastle (Buriram FC) is 33,600. Population figures are spot on. A lot more development projects are on the planning board or are already on the way.
  5. Buri Ram revamping reservoir for nature lovers

    I was in a meeting with Governor Anusorn this past month and the project is even greater than you have reported. For the past twelve years I have been the sponsor of the Ban Yoei Sakae School and the recently completed Juta-Antiya Sports Center that is located adjacent to the Huay Talat Reservoir and just across from the Huay Jorakay Mak and there are plans in development on both sides of the highway 219 (15 km mile-marker)being developed for adding water sports, picnicking, additional areas for boy scout and girl scout camping areas. The area is prime for development and will become a major recreation area for all who wish to utilize the facilities. So glad to see it coming to pass.
  6. Disney to open theme park in Thailand?

    Hope they choose Buriram for their new location. Plenty of good land still available, but oh the traffic, would have to widen roads again!
