Local shops

International shops

Both BigC and Tesco Lotus holds an excellent selection with fresh fish, vegetables, meat, milk, juices, cheese and most of your needs. The closest one is BigC. Here you will also find an excellent Chinese restaurant called MK. As liquor is not allowed to be sold between 1 and 5 PM in the shops, maybe an evening trip to BigC with shopping and dining is a suggestion. In case you have a car, you drive northbound on 2180 to you hit the main road. Then turn right. After a total of 15kms you will reach BigC on the right side of the road. In case you do not have a car, you may use the minibus or taxi service, see menu in the upper left corner. Lotus is inside Chaiyaphum town. See map in the restaurants section for Lotus location.

Chicken fighting restaurant

 

The Chicken Fighting place and Thai restaurant is open every Sunday and then there is chicken fight here. This is very popular and you will see hundreds of people there! They also have a Thai Food and bar (See image on the left) The place is driven by a nice family that does not speak any English, but they do have an image menu. The distance from the house is 2 km.  Menu

 

We have not tried the Korean food place, see image to the right, as the restroom facility is really not according to our standards. However, in case you have a robust stomach you can have a very cheap evening and the couple running the place is very nice. This place is in walking distance.

Noudle shop

The nodule place (left) is a place where you can buy a nodule soup for 25 Bath during the daytime. Not open in the evenings. They also provide take-away so you can bring back to the house. Order chicken (Kai) or pig (Mo) and show fingers for number of soups!
We are very happy that we have got a proper Korean restaurant with tap beer and it is very clean and driven by a couple that has been working in Korea as a chef. This is really a nice place!

International restaurants

Chaiyaphum city, 27kms away from the house has a number of good places to eat. First, you have Tesco Lotus which in addition to be a hypermarket has a food court. As all of them have pictures of the food, there is no problem to order food.

 

Next to Tesco you have an extremely large Korean/Karaoke food place which always has guests and an English menu. You barbeque the food on the table, and it is quite enjoying.

 

The Korean pavilion is focusing only on food and here the food is better. They do not have a English Menu so inviting the driver for translation and of cause give him a free meal pays off.

The bear hall and live band place always have very good bands and is completely full on weekends. You order food and drinks by the table and have fun with the surrounding guests. They will be trilled when meeting white people!

In case you really want European or Chinese food, the Riverside Hotel is the place. For those who stay up all hours, the Thai Bus station is a funny place to eat where you meet those who really do not want to sleep.

 

Fishing

Several places around the lake have well suited spots for fishing. We suggest purchasing fishing equipment at BigC as the price for such is very low.

Recreation

The Noen Sanga Resort has small cottages with bathroom, shower, air-condition, satellite TV, fishing, water jet and fun boats. It is a very nice resort only 6 kms from the house. Use the full day minibus or taxi service and enjoy this place. Bring the food and drinks you need. The fee for entrance and stay-over is 600 Bath pr. two persons. As the place is extremely difficult to find, we recommend using Taxi or Minibus service to get there. Recreation

Three nine-hole layout are featured here. Set in beautiful rolling countryside, this undulating terrain needed little landscaping to make it a superb test of golf. Distances are short, but the narrow fairways and judicious placement of water and sand demands accuracy. Varied fairway lies need care, especially on approaches to the well-bunkered greens. It is possible to make the trip from the house in the morning, play a round in the afternoon and return to the house in the evening. Service inside the pleasant clubhouse is friendly. Those who play golf at this course will not be disappointed.

This is a very pretty inland course surrounded by mature woodland. From the blue tees the par fours are challenging and the layout is a fair test for most handicap group. Approach shots to the rather small greens are made easier as the threes in the background assist the player in judging the distance. There is a golf lodge at the course and the clubhouse facilities are good. This is an ideal place for families to stay amidst the beautiful countryside.

This beautiful golf course set in the Khao Yai Mountains has five different tee boxes to choose from. The course rewards smart course management and punishes errant shot making. Expansive contouring, pristine lakes and a wide variety of bunker styles and shapes give each hole a new and exciting challenge. The greens tend to be slick and three putting is common. The added bonus of playing golf here is that there is usually a breeze. Clubhouse facilities are good, including two swimming pools, but there is no hotel on site.
