    Smile New in Khon Kaen !

    I've been here for a few days and to be quite honest, I'm bored lol.
    Probably the fact that I don't know anyone except for my gf! I live in Piman Thani near Wat Nong Wan. I think Khon Kaen have potential to fun for me if I know the right people. I've lived in Thailand for over 2 years on and off.
    Going back to Canada work and see my family in the maritimes!
    I speak french, decent english and shitty thai/isan.
    I like to drink and have a good laugh with nice people!

    Looking forward to meet good guys to enjoy my stay in KK !

    For the size of the place, Khon Kaen is as dull as fuck.

    Relocate to Udon and give your liver a proper work-out.

    The thing is that I can live almost for free in Khon Kaen. It's only 5k a month and 1.5 km from Wat Nong Wan and the lake.

    Better find the nearest cockfighting pit. That is an every weekend bit of fun. Even sometimes during the week. In KK there is the, what I call, swapmeet where you can buy most anything, including fightin chickens. Better keep the misses away from the patunam, too much et, et. But, there is cheap beer on the cart at the entrance. If you have a vehicle, there are a lot of places to go that are close.

    Got a good swimming pool. pool table, The food is pretty good to, there are also some good Falangs who drink there. You could start there, they will fill you in on where is the best places to go. ETC
    There are plenty of other little bars in the center of town, head down to wards the Pullman Hotel, and take a look around you cant miss them. Just keep away from the drunken falangs who look like they have been drinking all day, and you want go far wrong
    I started of in life with fcuk all, and I still got most of it left !!

    Cockfighting is the s*** ! I had myself a chicken when I was living in BKK. And I found a place not so far from the lake that organises fights ! Thanks for the idea !

    Good luck at the pits. If you ever figure out how to wager on the fight, let me know as I have yet to get it. Let my nephews do the talking.

    Used to be a somewhat nice place just down the road from me. Owner didn't pay the taxes and they shut it down. Wish I could open it, but I am thinking a falang would be asking for trouble.

    Go to the market near the police station and buy anything you want and do your own BBQ, a lot cheaper and you get what you want

    Talking

    Just had to stop muay thai because the only gym in Muang Khon Kaen is now closed...(S. Kingstar) The only gym i found is 30 min from my home and it's Kaoklai Gym own and run by the legend Kaoklai himself. He's really friendly but he told me will not be able to find me opponent at my weight class in isaan (70-72kg) and also he's really busy himself with his new business.

    I had 19 fights so far in Thailand including one at Rajadamnern stadium in Bangkok.(wich I lost on points). Maybe I will have to open my own gym in Muang Khon Kaen
