Ubon Ratchathani House For Rent

Happy New Year. I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday. Wish you the best in 2008.

If anybody is searching for a place to live long-term here in Ubon you might be interested in this. There is a house for rent off of Soi 10 (Soi Lotus). The sign says, it’s a 3-Bedroom house. I have never been inside but I did look at it from the street. It is small, with a small fenced yard and a covered carport.

The neighborhood is mostly quiet and safe. The noise is some dogs barking and there is a neighborhood public address system, which is annoying at times. But other than that it is peaceful. There is not much through traffic so not a lot of vehicular noise. Next door to this house there lives a high ranking police official so there is a safety factor.

You can walk to Lotus in about 5 minutes and there are several places to eat close by.

If you are interested you can go look at the house on Chayangkul Soi 10. You go up Soi 10, the soi on the entrance side of Lotus. Go up the soi to the first street to the right. On that street go to the second street to the left just before the dead end. The house is almost to the end on the right hand side. It is next to a house with a bright pink fence.

You can contact the landlord at mobile 0894-982-5422 or local Ubon land line, 045-245-583. I have no idea what the monthly rent is but if you need a house it would be worth a trip to check it out.

    Hi! How is the Internet speed there in Ubon? I am looking for something outside Bangkok, but must have very good Internet speeds (why is why I’m still in BKK now).
    Thanks for any info on this.

  2. Gene,

    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

    Here in Ubon there are several Internet Service Providers. Dial-up, DSL and wireless are available. I am not sure of the exact speeds but others who I have talked to who had the same requirements as you seemed satisfied.

    Ubon is a good place to live. Still country but many of the conveniences of the big city.

  3. Hello, Anon and Darwin,

    My wife and I stayed at the Sri Isan Hotel in Ubon for 2 weeks in Dec 2007. When I tested their free wireless Internet connection, it was 124 Kbps download, and 78 Kbps upload.

    The quality of their wireless connection did vary during our stay—-mostly, it seemed a bit quicker than the numbers I quoted.

    I don’t know which ISP they used, but the front desk phone number is “045-261011” and their website is http://www.sriisanhotel.com If you send them an e-mail, it may take them a few days to respond.

  5. Ken and Newt, thanks for the input. I had an acquaintence stayed there for a month or two. He would sit in the lobby coffee shop working on his notebook via wireless and was happy.

    I smiled when I saw you use Anon for anonymous. I know a few of my former students whose Thai name is Anon. In this case, though, anon refers to Gene.

    Thanks again

  6. Hey Darwin!

    That was the house that I was staying in! We found a place for the same price that we were paying (4,500 baht per month) in the center of Ubon City, not far from the school in which my wife & I work, so we moved last week during the school vacation.

    For anyone interested, the house is indeed three-bedroomed, although it would be up to you how you utilized the space, of course. (We used the largest bedroom as an office-come-classroom for teaching private English lessons.)

    The house is already wired up for connection to TT&Ts Internet service, called Maxinet, and the speed was pretty fast – it was a broadband connection that we had. I downloaded pretty large mp3 files in a matter of 10 minutes or less depending on the exact size.

    The house is deceptively big inside, with a massive kitchen to the rear. The sounds of nature abound as there’s a farmer’s field behind the house. The big pink-fenced house belongs to a high-ranking policeman so it gets checked out every two hours by motorcycle cops – so it’s pretty safe!

    My wife just told me a friend of hers saw some students in the property yesterday, so it may be that it’s been occupied already. It may not have, though, so I’d still recommend ‘phoning the landlord if you’re interested.

  8. Hello, this is kind of off topic on the internet inquiry but I’m moving to Ubon to attend Ubon Ratchathani University to study in their international bba program. I was wondering if anyone could provide assistance or information about living arrangements within close proximity. I’m primarily just looking for a clean studio with a/c that is fairly close to the university. The semester starts in June but I will probably move there a month in advance to get myself situated. If anyone knows of a house that is available for cheap rent, that would be great too. Anyone have any idea on what a house might cost on average there. It doesn’t necessarily need to lush but decent enough for a Westerner without high expectations. FYI, this is the first time I’ve visited this forum. It was referred to me by a friend. I hope meet or make friends in Ubon when I arrive. I am 24 and from California, USA. I will probably be the only native English speaker attending UBU’s international bba program. I was also accepted to every other university and initially planned on going to Mahidol but the people at UBU were a lot more personable and offered favorable options after graduation. I think I’ve rambled on long enough. Looking forward to any response. Take care, Edward

  9. Edward,
    Not a problem at all. Welcome to Ubon. A growing country town. Ubon University is around 20km out of town. In the past there wasn’t much out there but it is growing.

    There are apartments out there mainly built to target students and the workers at restaurants and shops. You can expect to pay 3500-5000 Baht per month, including utilities. If you are looking end of April or beginning of May should have no problem as most students aren’t back from summer break yet.

    I was born in California as well. Up in the north country, Redding. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Can send an email from link on my website. Weloveubon.com

    take care

    Do you have any info on a club/cafe called Atami which is in the city itself

  11. I have never heard of it but that don’t mean anything. I will ask around and let you know. Have you been there or know someone who works there?

  12. Gus,
    After some investigation I found Atami. It is a sing-a-song, karaoke and bath house on Suriyat Soi 24. The soi runs between Uppalisan and Suriyat Rds. It is the first soi on either street once you turn off Chayangkul Rd.
