The approximately estimated travel/road distance can be around 110 k 

http://distancecalculator.globefeed.com/thailand_Distance_Calculator.asp

Thailand’s forgotten backyard. Offers a glimpse of days past. Rice fields, water buffalos and a village life style prevail.

As of 2010

Entertainment is pretty scarce. There’s a cinema complex, but the films are in Thai. There are a few Thai-style bars and of course the Karaoke bars.

the usual: Tesco Lotus, Big C and a Makro.

There is an internet cafe on every street corner. Full of kids.

Chaiyaphum is in the heart of Essan, The Samlor drivers urr, make sure that you fix the price before getting into one.

The countryside there is beautiful, also the people are friendly, and it’s cheap.

There are many beautiful places to visit there. Tad Ton National park. Mo Hin Khao “Thailand’s own version of Stone henge”

And dog is on the menu :-[  If you go let us know if its changed.  :cheers thaiga

Several years ago there was a one legged Germany guy who lived there. He made the news because he went around shagging girls there and infected hundreds of them with HIV. He got deported but somehow managed to return a few years later and went back to Chaiyaphum do to the same thing again before getting arrested and deported again. Hundreds of girls both times. Snowball effect here.

 That was 2004 youva good memory b/f

A one-legged German at the centre of an HIV scare involving potentially hundreds of Thai women and girls was detained by a court today on immigration offences.

Hans-Otto Schiemann, 54, who claims to be infected with HIV and that he had unprotected sex with hundreds of Thais, was remanded in custody for a month after denying that he had overstayed his visa.

Schiemann, whose common-law Thai wife of five years has full-blown AIDS, has refused to take a blood test since being picked up on Wednesday last week.

Officials say they are powerless to charge him over his sexual activities but had printed 2,000 flyers warning students to avoid him and posted banners throughout the town of Chaiyaphum, northern Thailand.

Schiemann, who was not legally represented at the court in Chaiyaphum, was remanded after a 30-minute hearing and is due before a judge again on November 15.

As he was led away, Schiemann told reporters: "It's unfair to put me back in jail. I haven't committed any crime.

Your Right in one way Johnny, the name "Pommie" is in fact what the nice British people refer to the first Australian settlers who were convicts serving out their time here,
I am fortunate to be related to our family's first arrival to this country being not a convict but the opposite - a Welsh Police Trooper who later became the first police sergeant in Guilford Western Australia. even though he had it in for the aborigines. :-X
My reason for mentioning or assuming he was a Pommie is the fact that 99.9% of them have never ever got a nice thing the say about us Aussies for reasons unknown to me.

I don't really give a Rats about race, creed or religion and try my best to get on with people and do not mean to offend anyone so no hard feelings to the BRITISH gentleman who has trouble making sense of Australians...................each to their own.............who cares? no problem......they talk funny and sometimes I cant understand them either..............Know Wha I mean Then?

Now moving on..........................cheers Jonesy the "straightshooter" and proud of it :lol :lol :lol :cheers 8)

Hi Jonesey. Wow. So glad your great great great +++ relative was a Police Guy not a Prisoner. Otherwise, we surely couldn't talk to you at all.
Cobblers. Just Joking. Some of the Brits sent to Australia were heroes - how about the Tolpuddle Martyrs - amazing story. Many others too.
What would it matter anyway ?
A friend of mine goes to Chaiyaphum often - but I've never been there at all. Also know a Police Colonel there and another family who do a lot of property work - I think it must be ok to live there but don't speak to Germans with one leg ! (That was a horrifying story).
Like everywhere else - I guess it's ok if you make your own way.
I liked Thaiga's first reply to you - sounds ok to me. A bit like Phimai.

No Problem Thaiga, and Roger thanks for the reply
I do not have a problem with Nookiebear and maybe I took him the wrong way. So what is a "Giraffe m8" if you don't mind me asking?
Anyway Nookiebear no hard feelings mate!
My only recollection of Chaiyaphum was about two years ago we visited my wife's best friends family who live on the outskirts of town, we did not actually go into the town itself as it was a quick trip and did not have much time to look around.
We drove through a couple of areas where the buildings and layout reminded me of a wild west town in the movies

The people we met seemed very friendly but they also wanted to drink as much Leo I could buy but we all had a good time while there.
My mate Johnny is there at the moment visiting and staying with his Thai Girlfriend who also comes from Perth Western Australia, they are both up there visiting her family. I spoke to him on the phone a couple of times and he is having a ball helping them all to purchase and drink all of the Leo, Chang, Singha and Archa in town
My wife fears he will turn into an ankaholism!! as she puts it.
He normally does not drink much but there must be something in the water there :( :cheers :cheers :cheers :cheers :uhm

Pommie = Person from Mother England. It's a term of respect for people in or from the motherland.

The Tolpuddle Martyrs were in the bush foe only a few years and, wisely, returned home as soon as possible. They hated the beer there.

Jonesy -  it's 'cockney rhyming slang' or similar. Hard to follow - even for 'Poms'. As Thaiga says, Giraffe = 'avin a larf'.
And as for the Tolpuddle Martyrs - absolute heroes.
Will report more tomorrow.
Saf - a few years? - Grrrrrrrrrrr.
And your Missis is right - anachronysm is terrible and quite rampant around 'ere.
(Thanks Thaiga. Life is good).
