    Nong Khai is crap and full of old people

    Yep, thats the conclusion I have come to, I have just been looking at the Nong Khai Page and it looks to me that the old buggers that live there never go out.

    Things to See and do in Nong Khai

    Sculpture Park, also known as
    (Sala kaew ku - Nong Khai)Sala Kaew Koo
    Sculpture Park contains statues of heights greater than 16 meters, it was initiated by a Laos National Luang Poo Boun Leua Sourirat, whe passed away in 1996 after spending nearly 20 years with other devotees constructing the different statues, after his death the statues went into decline untill the local Government decided to help in its renovation.
    Historical Park
    The Serpentís Fire
    (Wat Hai Sok - Nong Khai)Wat Hai Sok
    Wat Khaek (Issan / Nong Khai / Wat Khaek - Sala Kaew Ku)A Day at Wat Khaek
    Wat Phu Tok
    Wat Aranbanpot
    Wet lands
    Phu Pra Bat

    Yep. No joke. Are you serious about where it is. If so, just across the river from Vientiane, Lao and North of Udorn Thani.

    You're asking for photos that will serve to confirm your suspicion?
    OK -- photos of crap and old people. Shouldn't be too difficult.

    Well it would be nice if some of the above were clickable links and actually led to a thread I'm sure some of the older members could do a thread on their visits to the Nong Khai hospitals or maybe the wats that their older friends have been cremated at

    There is a bunch. As a matter of fact all of Isaan is crawling with farangs.

    Just go to Surin, Buriam or Prassat and hang out for a bit. You will see tons of them. Not talking about there weight either, well some of them are whales.....

    True, first time I went about 6 years ago there was hardly any. Last time I went a couple of years ago there was loads. Prasat has even got a proper hotel now.

    Not many compared with the number crawling around Bangkok or Pats. Only 640 in all Roiet Province. Hell you can find more than that in low season in a 20 meter strip on crawling street.

    I've heard there is one beached whale in Buriram!

    OK but I ain't real sure where I gonna be when I pull the plug, but I guess I might be right here as this is twice I have lived in this same 50 meter square in this country and I do like it here and it is a nice quiet Wat just outside the compound, so I will go over and get the skinny on that WAT and tell you all about it.
    But then again, I am still married to that nice Thai lady and she might haul my raggedy ass back and have me BBQed at Nongua just to spite me.
    Well fuck that, I might not even die then.

    I do not understand those that live in the Twilight zone and seem to think that one must stay smeared to enjoy living in a warm tropical climate,,
    If you wanted to stay tipsy all the time why not have stayed at home where booze was of better quality and as cheap or cheaper than here and you would not have had to put up with all the population being brain dead, only the ones that hung out with you in saloons when the rest of the population would have been fairly normal.
    Seems like 99% of the expats are stoners or drunks and can think and talk of nothing else, well except maybe some talk of fucking their SiL sometimes.
