  2. Let me know if your sale falls through. I'm in Sakon... Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
  3. An interesting thread. Thailand reminds me of the UK of my youth when most of my friends smoked and you could cut the air in the pub with a knife..... Of course those men have now retired to Thailand and continue to smoke just the same in bars and restaurants - it's almost impossible to get a smoke free breakfast in Udon, Sakon, or Nong Khai........

  10. I live about an hour from Sawan and am looking for an alternative town to explore........ ....... any bars, restaurants, etc, that you'd recommend? Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  11. A few points to consider. It's traditional for grandparents to do the bulk of child rearing - that cannot help with discipline as grandparents are generally petty soft or probably too tired to keep on top of the youngsters. I believe Thai parents see their responsibility to the extended family, not simply to their children. Many parents, sometimes both, sometimes one, are working away from home and will see their children once or twice a year; not a good situation in which to teach values to a child The lack of education does not help and, from what I've seen, schools do not help form rounded adults from their intake. But then again, neither do many UK schools. Did we in the UK happily wear helmets or seatbelts when the law was changed given overwhelming medical evidence of the benefits? No we didn't. Similarly, why do we still smoke when we know it kills us? Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  12. Lunchbob, did anyone manage to help off-forum? I'd be interested if they did, I'm in Sakon too.... Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  13. Simple reply, I'm staying put in Isaan with Thai wife and son. It's not perfect, but life here's pretty good....... Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  14. Sgt Maj Thawee's Folk Museum in Phitsanulok is certainly recommended - one of the best in the kingdom :) Opposite is the Buddha casting factory that's also worth your time.... Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
  15. Ubonjoe, Immigration at Sakon Nakhon told me I needed to start with Non-Immigrant O but I had to go out of the country to get it - they suggested Vientiane or Savannakhet. Are you saying that they could have issued one? Sent from my ASUS_T00J using Thaivisa Connect mobile app
