  1. Went there a few years ago, never again.
  2. Kiatnakin Bank are holding car auctions in Udon Thani at least once every month. They are on the west side of the ringroad.
  3. Cannot install this App since Google Play thinks that I am in another country??
  4. I think it is nice for a visit. There is a bit of a virgin forest and it is very seldom you see big trees like that.
  5. It is actually in the Udon Thani Province but not very far from Nong Khai. Open this link and you will get directions:
  6. When I have obtained the O-A visa in Sweden I have always shown my Swedish bank-accounts. There has never been any discussion about this. When later, in Thailand, asking for an extension I will show a Thai bank-account.
  7. Oven clean spray, use generously and wrap the pan tightly in a plastic bag and allow 24 hours for stuff to work.
  8. I do not think so.
  9. The Amphoe refuses to issue a birthcertificate on the grounds that none of the parents are Thai. There is a birthrecord from the hospital naming both parents. Since the child soon will be registered as Swedish the father will be able able to get official Swedish records stating him as the father. Can his Lao common wife go the same way to get a visa for Thailand as dependant of him?
  10. This is about a friend of mine. He is Swedish and has been living in Thailand for many years, extension of stay based on retirement. He lives in Nong Khai with a Lao woman, They have had a village marriage in Lao, but nothing official since this is more or less impossible for Lao women. His "wife" does not have a visa for Thailand and just goes in and out as many Lao people do. Now they have had a child, born in Nong Khai and his first problems started when he applied for a Swedish passport to the child. Problem was that the local Ampoe in Nong Khai refused to issue a certificate of his Fatherhood, they only do that if one of the parents are Thai. And if he cannot prove that he is the father, no passport. Now after months of discussions with Swedish authorities the child will be given a Swedish passport thus becoming a Swedish citizen, which brings me to the big question. Can this Swedish child, living in Thailand, be given a visa as being depending of him? Obviously they cannot make references to the mother since she is not Thai and staying in the Kingdom more or less illegally. What should his next step be?
  11. Went to Songkla (and Hat Yai) a week ago. I had planned for a few nice days on the beach but was very disappointed about the weather. It was very windy and lots of rain and no one was swimming by the beach or in the pool. Is this some kind of monsoon time? What month would be ideal for going to the beach in Songkla?
  12. You need to provide a Thai ID-card, pink one is OK.
  13. If you purchase an airline ticket and pay with a credit card you could be asked to show this card when checking in and this could be a problem if you have purchased a ticket for someone else and you are not going yourself. I know that it is not very common that they will ask for the credit card but it has happened a couple of times for myself and once I had a crying teenager calling from Bangkok saying that Bangkok Air refused to accept her ticket for Samui. Luckily she had money and could buy a new ticket and eventually I was refunded the money for the ticket I had bought. So in order to avoid disaster in the future I wonder if there is a way to sort of "verify", in advance, the credit card you use for buying a ticket för someone else?
  14. Where is this "carpark" outside on the ring?
