Anything about Prachin Buri, Thailand? Peanutz, are you there?
Hi Thailand folks. My friend is thinking about taking a job in Prachin Buri, about 40 or so km northeast of Bangkok. We are only finding a tiny bit about it online, nobody we know has much info. Do any of you? Peanutz, I asked for you ’cause you have great answers 🙂 If you’ve been there, what do you think of it for a single, 27 year old girl with only an elemantary grip on the language? Thanks!
I know you’re not asking me, but I thought I’d put my 2 cents worth in anyway. I have a business interest in the Prachinburi area so I have visited Prachinburi often over the past seven years. You are apparently a western person (as am I) and the few ex-pats I know who live in the area are men with Thai wives. I don’t know of any western women who live there. There is very little English spoken. Many don’t even speak Thai to one another; they speak Isan (Laotian) informally, but all do speak Thai. You’re a young woman. I assume you would not like to give up your social life. Meeting Thai men is very difficult, not only because of the language difference, but they are also very shy when it comes to meeting western women. You would most likely have to make the first move. Prachinburi itself has very little nightlife to offer. There is a kind of fun restaurant and bar with an American cowboy theme in Kabinburi, which isn’t too far, called Home Sweet Home. There are also many resorts in the area, but not that close. You’d need private transportation to get to just about anything. Peanutz mentioned PB Winery in the Khao Yai area–I always pick up a case of their very good Shiraz when I’m in that area, but the winery is not close to the city either. I drive, so I don’t pay much attention to the public transportation, but all I’ve noticed are tuk tuks and busses in Prachinburi. The nearest western-type market, other than convenience stores, that I know about is Makro that just opened up in Sakaeo. I live in Bangkok because I’m not a country boy and I would go crazy if I lived there. There is simply not that much there that suits my western tastes. I enjoy going there for a break, however. Anyway, good luck to you. Oh yes, Prachinburi is not 40 km. from Bangkok–it’s more like 150.

Thai Isan brings authentic Thai cuisine to Peachtree City. Isan is the northeast region of Thailand with its own culinary specialties. The food is a mixture of Lao and Thai dishes. Try our neau namtok (beef salad) or somtom (papaya salad) with a side of sticky rice.
All of our dishes are made to order using the freshest ingredients. Eating family style is recommended.

“อีสานบ้านเฮา (Isan is Our Home)
Owner P’Koong comes from Sisaket Province in the northeast region of Thailand known as Isan, bordering Laos and Cambodia. Rice farming is still done by traditional methods throughout Isan, with most of the world’s fragrant jasmine rice being harvested by hand on family farms today, just as it has for centuries. Isan people love to eat spicy food like papaya salad, and sticky rice is traditionally served with every meal (try some!). At Isan Thai Restaurant, you will find authentic Isan recipes not commonly found in other Thai restaurants, as well as more familiar dishes like Pad Thai and Green Curry.
Isan Thai Restaurant celebrates the culture and traditions of Isan, with its colorful silk clothing, captivating folk dances, and the beautiful sounds of Thai country music sung in the Isan dialect.
We invite you to come and experience the taste of Isan!
