    Udon Thani

    November 14, 2015 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Just a short overnight stop one hour after we passed the border to Thailand. It has a huge shopping mall and has a night-market that is at least the same size. I've seen the first christmas tree for this year! They are quite early here in Udon Thani and the more than 30 degrees doesn't help for more christmas feeling ;)
    We decided to stay another day to visit a Chinese temple at a lake and a Book-Festival, where many Cospayers attended :)

    Recovering in Udon Thani

    July 20, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 34 °C

    After a brief night of "sleep" on the bus, we arrived into Udon Thani at about 6am, well ahead of schedule. We'd forgotten to pull up a map to our hotel when we still had wifi and were a bit lost, though we knew our hotel was within about 500 metres and was roughly *that* direction. In the end I found a random hotel and asked the guy at the front desk for their wifi password so we could find our hotel! We weren't too far away.

    Naturally, since it was 6:30am, our room wouldn't be ready until 11am so we had a lot of time to kill. This hotel has a self-service kitchen and dining area, so we sat in there for a couple of hours and chatted to an American couple for a while. They'd come across the border from Laos so the lady could have a root canal, since medical facilities are much better here in Thailand than Laos.

    Our room was ready early at about 9am so we headed upstairs for a much needed shower and change. Decided to head out to the nearby mall and have a McDonalds breakfast, then wandered around a little bit afterwards.

    The rest of the day we just spent idling away in the hotel, snoozing and doing various things online. Annoyingly, the hotel wifi isn't working in our room so we can choose between either wifi or air conditioning, as the reception area isn't air conditioned. Annoying!

    Headed out in the evening for some dinner at the nearby pub street which seems to be the epicentre of nightlife here. Mostly skeevy looking old white guys and young Thai women in tank tops. I dunno if they're specifically prostitutes, but they're definitely "looking for love". We had a drink at a bar and ignored the women, then ended up having egg roti from a street cart, followed by wonton noodle soups from a Chinese man around the corner.

    Udon Thani

    January 7, 2017 in Thailand ⋅ 🌙 24 °C

    Udon Thani, die kleine Hauptstadt der gleichnamigen Provinz im nordöstlichen Teil Thailands grade einmal 60km von der Landesrenze zu Laos entfernt.
    Im ersten Moment erschreckend und der Gedanke wo bin ich denn jetzt gelandet, entfaltet dieses Städtchen nachts seine wahre Schönheit mit großem streetfood Markt und shopping Meile.Read more

    Arrivée en Issan

    March 31, 2016 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    La loose!!!!! Didier a oublié la tablette dans l'avion!!!.... il s'en est rendu compte à l'aéroport mais évidemment personne ne l'a trouvé!....
    Obligé de changer les codes de tous les comptes paramétrés dessus.... Bref la galère quoi. On espère qu'une âme charitable va nous appeler pour nous la remettre, mais sans trop y croire quand même.....
    Bref!....nous voilà arrivés à Udon thani, au lion king hotel. Chambre immense, clean et même si le personnel ne parle quasiment pas l'anglais ils sont tout à fait serviable et on fini toujours par se comprendre! Un peu excentré, mais une bonne adresse à 16 euros la nuit!
    Nous avons passé une nuit pourrie car malgré notre demande pas de lit sup pour Tim. Il a donc dormi avec nous.... heureusement un matelas plus que confortable a été rajouté ce matin, donc la prochaine nuit devrait être plus douce!

    Allez, ne nous laissons pas abattre....location de scooter, et c'est partie pour de nouvelles aventures!!
