....haven't been yet to the Irish Clock.  Menu looks great, but so many good choices/places here in UT.  You have so many Irish Pubs in Pattaya, I haven’t made it a priority to visit it.  I was planning on visiting the Good Day Cafe and then realized it’s Mexican Wednesday @ the Sports Bar Restaurant & Bar.  Btw, one of my favs in Paattaya - Taco Taco

Day # 4 Udon Thani (Day #8 mini-trip report)

 

Got up later this morning today, 7am lol, and worked on the computer for just under an hour. Went downstairs and dropped off my laundry at the cleaners and then headed back to the massage shop right next door to Fun Bar.  My girl was working so I got an hour oil HJ.  Just closed my eyes and enjoyed an hour of relaxation. 

After the massage went next door to my hotel, @ Home at Udon Thani Hotel to the “Sport Bar & Restaurant”.  Today is Mexican Food Wednesday.  I order Fish Tacos, an Enchiladas and Chimichanga.  The food looked great, but didn’t taste very good.  The Fish Tacos looked great, but the coleslaw was sour tasting so I spit it out and didn’t eat anymore.  One thing I’ve learned about Thailand, if something doesn’t taste right, best thing to do is spit it out and not eat anymore, helps cut down on getting a sick tummy.  The Chicken Enchiladas were just ok, but the enchiladas sauce was so spicy I could only get through about half of it.  The Chimichanga outer tortilla was a bit weird.  It was not the usual tortilla shell and was an off brown in color and was a bit soggy like. Inside they didn’t use regular or Mexican rice, but some sort of black rice. Also, it was weird having American Cheese on top of the Chimichanga.  First of all, I hate American cheese.  As an American, I think American cheese is the worst invented cheese ever!   I also made the mistake of ordering steak as my meat choice….and here in Thailand ordering beef steak is probably a no-no unless at a good falong run restaurant.  The lunch meal was a poor choice…now I know, won’t do that again. 

After lunch, went back to the room for a quick power nap. 

After my nap, headed across the street from the Nutty Park Beer Bar Complex, over to “Good Day Cafe”.   I ordered an ice coffee latte and the Pork Chop meal.  The coffee was great.  The meal, looked great, but wasn’t all too good.  The pork chop was kinda fatty and I received the wrong gravy from what I asked for.  Also, the mashed potato was awful.  I think it was made a while ago and just microwaved hot.  Another bad meal today…. Ohh for Two today …what a stinker. 

Left the restaurant and walked around the open markets and bought some socks and looked around.  I ended up back at the Nutty Park Beer Complex, so decided to have a look, although a bit early.  As I turned to the bend in the back section, I noticed the place was still dead.  Most of the beer bars were still closed, but one bar had a cute girl sitting out front and asked me to come sit down.  So, I sat down for a beverage at the Sky Blue Bar & Izakaya.  My girl’s name was Beer and I bought her a drink.  She had a whiskey coke and I had a coke light.  She told me that the bar was owned by the older Thai girl working behind the bar.  She was once married to a Japanese guy for a while, but he had passed away a few years ago.  A very cute girl wearing a white top came in and sat at the counter to chat with the owner lady.  Wow, she was super cute.  My girl and I continued to chat about nothing for an hour while she gave me a hand and shoulder massage.  She was super nice and friendly.  To say my girl was well mannered and so nice is an understatement. She was so very sweet and nice.  I enquired as to the bar fine.  She said #300 baht and #1,200 for ST.  I squared up the bill and we headed back to my hotel.  She carried my bag with the socks in it while holding my hand.  Once up in the room, we showered and made our way to the bed.  She was very sweet and enjoyable.  She stayed in bed for over 3 hours and finally after seeing that she was still in no hurry to leave, I said, “Oh, my friend wants me to meet me”.  So, finally she got dressed and I walked her outside.  She was great!

I received a message from my girl from Fun Bar while I was busy with my afternoon ST barfine. She said she was at her bar and was waiting for me.  So, I hurried up and headed over to Fun Bar.  No Thai singer today….I was told he only works 3 or 4 days per week and today was one of his day’s off.  I sat with my girl and we chatted about my life and bit about my travel plans.  Once she heard I was heading over to Hua Hin next month, she said she would like to go with me and that I wouldn’t have to pay her anything …just pay the plane ticket to get from UT over to Pattaya.  After a bit more hanging-out, paid the bar fine and we headed back to my hotel.  We had another great session and now really starting to dig her way too much, lol.  She showered and I walked her downstairs.   Back up in my room, was thinking about doing some pre-packing, but was getting sleepy so I just got back into bed and dozed off thinking about what to do on my last day in Udon Thani tomorrow. Another relaxing, fun day here in Udon Thani. Very much enjoying the easiness of Udon Thani and the simple life.

In Udon there are any number of Thai pubs and clubs which are a lot more fun than Soi Sleaze and the Cow Shed.

Soi Phibun has a some good bars and 1 club and there are a couple of good bars on the north west side of Nong Prajak park.

Soi Si Somchuen has some lively restaurants and bars.

Clubs such as Rhythm in the Napalai Hotel, Phoenix, Yellow Bird in the Charoen hotel, Tawan Daeng at the back of Central Plaza, Kongsiam Cafe for live music, 20UP a Thai beer garden.

Not so sure about that as probably most aim their entertainment at their audience.  Sea Hawk was meant to go enjoy Isaan music, maybe not such a great viewing for those in Bangkok. I was in the Khon Kaen Tawandaeng and there was an Isaan A lister, the place was packed to the rafters, the atmosphere was unbeatable.

The Thais know how to party and I think most Tawandaengs aim their entertainment and music to their local audiences although some super A listers are nationally loved.

All of them are great places to visit and enjoy a view of how Thais party, I was very impressed.

Day #5 Udon Thani (Day #9 mini-trip report)

Woke up and began to pre-pack my suitcases while talking with a few co-workers via skype. By the time I completed my conversations, my packing was about done….multi-tasking completed!

Went downstairs and over to the right to pick-up my laundry.  Came out washed, ironed and folded.  Was dirt cheap, why would people bother even doing their own laundry ???  After returning to the room with my laundry….last minute work request came in which took only 45 min. to complete.  I felt after doing a bit of work, I deserved a nice massage.   I left the hotel and turned right and slowly began my walk through the soi.   Of course, I was offered a massage at every shop I approached/passed.  I saw a bird I liked so I asked her how much for a “ball & shaft massage only/1hr”   She said #500 baht.   I made sure to repeat back, #500 baht total price?  And she stated yes, total price #500 baht for ball & shaft massage for 1 hour.  I find it much easier and cheaper to ask for what I want up front.  If you go get a massage and then want to add extras, not only will it cost more, but no guarantees extras are available.  Much better to negotiate out front before going inside the shop.  My girl gave me my request massage type for an hour and I laid back, listened to my music with my earphones and very much enjoyed the massage. 

After the massage I headed back towards the hotel, but past it to the Italian Restaurant – da Sofia.  I found out that fresh hand made pasta wouldn’t be available until about 6pm today.  I decided to order grilled veggies as my appetizer and spaghetti bolognese.  The grilled veggies were great.  The spaghetti was fine, but the noodles were just a tad dry.  They should have put my noodles in a hot bath before servings….oh well.  I spoke with my server about which dishes would have the fresh hand made pasta and she gave me the info. and decided that I would find a way in the evening to stop and try the pasta. 

After my lunch, headed over to Central Plaza to take care of some banking stuff.  Interesting enough, I still didn’t need anymore money, so skipped taking out a withdrawal.  I went up to the 3rd floor, all the way in the back to visit the Kasikorn Bank Branch.  I needed to update my info. in order to access the phone app features.  I grabbed a ticket number and within 2 min. I was seated in front of a cute Thai girl Banking Specialist.  I told her that I could no longer access the app via my phone.  She checked in the computer system and told me that my ATM card had expired and that I would need to pay #300 baht in order to obtain a new card (must be only #200 baht to renew atm w/active card annually). I paid the #300 baht and got my new ATM. Then, she looked into re-setting up the Phone App. So I could do transfers and payments via my mobile phone.  She said I need to update my phone number.  I was also told, when overseas, use “wifi” when wanting to access Kasikorn Application.  So, she went ahead and updated acct to my new number.  We went out to the front of the branch to one of the ATM machines and made sure to check that everything was completed and work correctly.  I left Central Plaza and headed back to my hotel.  I wasn’t planning on going out so early (still daylight outside), but got a message from my girl and she said she was already at work.  So, I went downstairs and over to Fun Bar.  My girl was standing out front and we spent a couple minutes talking before heading into the bar.  Just as we grabbed a table, a falong driving a white pick-up truck smashed into about 4 motorbikes parked right in front of Fun Bar…..thank goodness my girl and I moved into the bar a few minutes earlier or we would have been smashed.  This accident of course caused a bit of commotion for a while……

My girl and I got a drink and after that, I barfined her and we went over to Central Plaza.  I suggested eating at Shabushi or Sukishi Charcoal Grill.  My girl said they too expenses.  She said S&P ok.

We had a bite to eat over at S&P and I ordered both won ton shrimp soup & chicken w/cashew, while my girl ordered spring rolls.  I asked her if she wanted anything else, but she said she only wanted the single order of #130 baht spring rolls.   After dinner we headed back to my hotel room and spent a couple of hours fooling around. My girl tonight wanted to go listen to Issan music & drink at a place close by called Tawan Daeng Pub.  We got dressed and headed over to Fun Bar for a drink.  I ordered food from da Sofia – fresh hand made pasta with Gargonzola.  As long as you order a drink from Fun Bar, you can order food from any of the restaurants nearby and have it delivered right to your table.  A few minutes later my bowl of pasta arrived.  And it was really yummy.  Not only was the fresh made pasta a must, but of course gargonzola cheese is always tasty.  After finishing up, I ordered a Grab car rider from my phone app and we headed out to UD Town to the Night Market.  We walked around and I paid for a few items my girl wanted.  She spent a little bit of time at one shop, but eventually left without wanting the items she spent a long time looking at.  I asked her, you not want?  She said she want, but price too high.  I think she said one item was #150 baht and the other item was #250 baht.  I said no problem, I can buy for her.  She said no, price not good, come back next time or find somewhere else.  We walked around a bit and she got a message from her friend, said she couldn’t make it out tonight. So, my girl said, let’s stay at the night market and listen to music here.  So, we sat, ordered a couple of drinks and listened to the music. My girl was getting cold 25c. so

After an hour, we headed back to Fun Bar for a couple of drinks before I called it a night.  As we were waiting for our Grab Driver to arrive, I handed my girl #2,000 baht for the night….she genuinely was surprised that she got money – as I had already bought her a few cheap items earlier at the night market and took her out to dinner and bought drinks at her bar.  Back in Pattaya, no matter how much money I give a girl, a lot of them will say “that it” or “not want to give me more”.  Also, after giving a high amount before, a few of the girls will still even try and hit me up for a bit more for – motorbike taxi.  There is one girl (a 9/ibar superstar) who’s been messaging me ever since she saw me on WS 2 weeks ago.  She asked me why I not come see her.  I don’t plan on ever seeing her again, so I replied via messenger to her – Last time I give you #10k and pay for whole party and you still say you want more than that….it make me not like you 1%.  And then you ask me for motorbike money too…..”I don’t like this way”.  I guess after years of the nonsense and the increased level of “stuck up B-tches” in Pattaya, I guess I’ve had my fill. 

Udon Thani – Had an amazing simple time here in Udon Thani the past 5 days.  After the nonsense and hustle and bustle of Pattaya, while dealing with my superstar birds in Pattaya, it was definitely a nice break visiting both Khon Kaen and Udon Thani.  Much more down to earth, much more relaxing and although a bit of work finding a girl I liked enough to bar fine, I very much enjoyed my time immensely more with Issan girls here than the girls I grab in Pattaya. No drama, no games, no hiso attitude or wanted stuff ever minute.  It felt like the girls I hung out with were happy with the simple life, slower pace and were very easy going and didn’t ask or need very much.   I still plan to visit Pattaya, but I think I will incorporate breaks – side trips up to Issan.

After the nonsense and hustle and bustle of Pattaya, while dealing with my superstar birds in Pattaya, it was definitely a nice break visiting both Khon Kaen and Udon Thani.  Much more down to earth, much more relaxing and although a bit of work finding a girl I liked enough to bar fine, I very much enjoyed my time immensely more with Issan girls here than the girls I grab in Pattaya. No drama, no games, no hiso attitude or wanted stuff ever minute.  It felt like the girls I hung out with were happy with the simple life, slower pace and were very easy going and didn’t ask or need very much.   I still plan to visit Pattaya, but I think I will incorporate breaks – side trips up to Issan

Many thanks for the report, fascinating and very informative for me as someone who hasn't been to either KK or UT but has spent  way too much time in Patts😀

Quite an amazing conclusion you came to in 4 days in UT, given you were not that impressed on day 1.

Cheers 👍

Not so sure about that as probably most aim their entertainment at their audience.  Sea Hawk was meant to go enjoy Isaan music, maybe not such a great viewing for those in Bangkok. I was in the Khon Kaen Tawandaeng and there was an Isaan A lister, the place was packed to the rafters, the atmosphere was unbeatable.

The Thais know how to party and I think most Tawandaengs aim their entertainment and music to their local audiences although some super A listers are nationally loved.

All of them are great places to visit and enjoy a view of how Thais party, I was very impressed.

bangkok much beter almost every way even esan music especialy at end night. beer & food not even same world.

been in ut, kk & bangkok. all ok but bangkok world class.

Sorry but it is just your opinion and I think that opinion is bollocks.......what are you on about beer and food not same world, it's probably the same beer......talk to Thais and they will tell you a different story and they will probably not discriminate between venues. 

As for a foreigner then you will have favourites but you shouldn't belittle a place that brings in thousands of Thais having a good time. Of course Bangkok is good but when in Khon Kaen or any other town in Thailand these places rock especially for the locals. The OP is also in Isaan not Bangkok so just offer something positive about where the guy is located. You sound like another Isaan hater.

Your comments don't give any reasons other than beer and food which I doubt is a very good reason especially as they probably are the same throughout.  A reason that can offer a decent view might actually help the conversation. I doubt many Thais or foreigners won't go into a Tawandaeng in Khon Kaen because you have decided the Bangkok one is better, just seems a real weird debate you are trying to start. 

Every Tawangdaeng is a good place to have a great night, especially for the Thais.

You are a complete dick mate, guy is in Isaan, why don't you confine your comments to that which would be more helpful.

The OP has nothing to do with Tawangdaeng in Bangkok and really didn't deserve your detrimental comment about entertainment and food in Isaan being average.

I thought for a minute you were TS in disguise. You also obviously have an issue with being in Isaan

Also your English suddenly got a lot better when getting irritated with my reply. Not the usual unintelligible English you write.

I have to say i've been to Tawandang many times in Korat and its always been a great night out. They are actually moving from their current site to something much better and bigger so i'm told.

Looking forward to your continued TR SH, its great informative stuff and i like the lady pics TFP.
