    Sisaket to Bangkok: 7.5 hours by bus.
    Bangkok to Pattaya: 2 to 2.5 hours.

    Total time about 10 hours. Doable in a day. Leave Si-saket in the morning, arrive in Pattaya in the evening of the same day.

    Time spent on the beach? Pushing it a little if one wants a tan and it's a day trip.

    Obviously it's not worth it for a day trip, but for a break of 5 days or more, no problem.

    Sorry I was being sarcastic as I see Fred as being a wind-up. I should have said.

    We both miss each other so much it hurts.
    rest assured it is nothing to the pain you will experience after three years together with her and her extended family.

    Been there, done that.

    I have done what you are contemplating. My wife (from Sisaket) got a visa, and we lived in Las Vegas for almost 10 years. We then moved to a village in Sisaket where my wife owned some land and built a 20 sq m house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.
    It's a nice house, but we are in a village where everyone is nice, but I cannot learn to speak Thai, and nobody speaks English, so it can be very boring.
    The house cost me close to $40 K, but that was only because I used village labor.
    If your wife does not already own land, and even if she does, I would consider renting for a few months first. We rented for the first couple of months at a hotel in the middle of Sisaket, and paid only 9000 thb per mo.
    Good luck, and feel free to contact me if you wish.
    I should mention that I'm probably quite a bit older than you, so my outlook may be different.

    Thai Lion Air has been having promo flights from Ubon to Bangkok for 575 thb. Ubon is not that far to go to get to the airport.

    They don't fukin love you, they are bumpkins who have seen a cashpoint walk into their lives and they are shining it! When that cashpoint flickers and stops being shiny they will throw it in the garden, kick it about, swear at it, threaten it and try to get it to flash nice colours again. After a while, with no more bright colours and fun for them, they'll just take it to pieces and sell the parts for scrap. & the cashpoint will be thoroughly hated...
    How do I post these pictures???

    A tan?
    Why?


    The idea is to stay outta the sun's intensity.

    Very Farang.
    A tan.
