  1. Chiang Mai to Ayutthaya, change trains for Nong Khai . http://www.thailandbytrain.com/
  2. Train to Khon Kaen, then bus (about 2.5 hours) to Roi-Et.
  3. tonray: thanks for that,it's exactly the sort of information I am looking for.
  4. The line runs to Ubon in the East and Non Khai in the North as you know so it's a case of what is worth going to on either/ both of those routes.
  5. Hi all, I am planning a two week return trip by train from Chiang Mai to Issan in November. Looking for tips on what places to visit, where to stay/ eat etc. Many thanks.
  6. "Ah, you are from Thighland, I must visit you there soon"
  7. ' Why then did they say, no need to update after travel in Thailand? " Cos they are keen to get your 1600 at a later date ?
  8. What potential is it that the writer wants to unlock? To become more like the USA or Europe, where democratically elected stupidity and incompetence are at a premium, or to fuel the profits of global corporations? In my view Thailand is OK as it is. People know their place in a structured society, their view of life is blinkered, they don't worry about things too much as they know they cannot change anything anyway. Life is about today's food, a smoke, a drop to drink, the family, the soi, the village..... How many people in the so called "democratic" countries would willingly return to the Thai way of life if they had a chance! Isn't that why most of us are here in the first place.
  9. Thanks for all your very helpful replies.
  10. Thanks again for your time, most helpful.
  11. It's a WAVE 110. Thanks for that info. " Sangchai Panich " is the name of the shop ?
  12. I want to get my 7 year old Honda tidied up, spray in various scratches, new twist grips, foot rest rubbers etc. Anywhere near Kad Farang that folks have used with satisfaction please? Many thanks.
  13. A siren does not automatically give you right of way. The pickup driver could be deaf (not part of the driving test) and he was on a green light apparently.
  14. What a truly stupid man he is.
  15. " Police said the truck drove into the ditch in the middle of the road " As if life isn't difficult enough already!!
