6 weeks in Udon Thani issan Thailand pt 1

Saturday

well i just arrived in udon thani last week its been great catching up with some old friends 1 our 2 have gone home since my last visit and a few others have moved bars some removed from the old so called soi falang opposite the complex yes udon thani is changing rapidly the gradual increase in the expat community as more then been matched buy the increase in bars and restaurants most of which sit empty the older bars seem to be doing ok with custom built up over many years the new influx of bar owners have saturated the market newly open bars are closed up and quiet a few units sit empty

day and night centre known as the cow shed

mostly unfinished but as a bar owner told me there is one getting of the plain every day with is wallet wide open and is eyes closed but there is one saving grace if you need to furnish a place of your own get down to pataya there having fire sells a local guy just picked up a new pool table from pats for 20.000 baht the day and night centre above as just 1 little gem right at the back a very tastefully furnished bar and restaurant called Hollywood adjacent to a lovely garden area there food is spot on i had the masaman curry a south Thai dish very tasty indeed

although i have based myself outside of town this trip i just spent a very nice 2night stay in the Irish clock a little bit of luxury in udon thani 850 baht a night with 100 baht of your breakfast which get plenty of good reviews Steve and mali have been in business a long while in udon



i also dropped buy another favourite of mine is harry's bar he does a good food trade and as plenty of parking just on the udon ring road up from the naplai hotel harry is one of udon thani oldest establishments and provides arguably the best burgers in town and a good chat harry speaks Thai Dutch German and English the bar as girls working there which can be helpful if your on your own



after a couple of heavy nights i chickened out and headed to the boonies to regroup our so i thought i can understand why lots of guys become alcoholic in Thailand not that i am one of course even in the badlands of ban dung issan you can find bars popping up some new ones some reborn from the ashes of a failed relationship its more like patent place then a six week rest
