Warasorn Place – renting an apartment in Korat

February 10, 2013

Last Wednesday I arrived in Thailand. Right after landing I went to the immigration desk and it went wrong right away. Apparently they hadn’t seen I had a tourist visa in my passport, and I was just given a stamp for 30 days only. Right after walking further I checked my passport and found out the mistake. Luckily another immigration officer was walking around behind the counter and when I showed my visa to him we both went back to the desk where he spoke to the officer behind the counter. Bottom line is that my visa is now stamped correctly, only downside is that my passport is a mess.

Oh no, now my passport is a mess!

After gathering my luggage I went to the meeting point a the airport where my parents-in-law were waiting for me. At first I planned to go by bus, but that would take too long (going to the bus station first, then taking the bus for 4 hours, and finally another taxi for the last part). Another option was to take a taxi right away from the airport which would cost me about 2,500 baht. But being driven there is by far the most relaxing since I can just sleep in the car.

Last time I stayed at BaanKuer, but for this time I was looking for a slightly bigger place. Staying at BaanKuer is fine for a couple of weeks, but for months the room is too small and too dark. So this time my fiancée and I rented a room at Warasorn Place.

The room we rent is about 80 square meters, has a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and two balconies. The room is furnished, although the amount of furniture is a bit limited for the 2-room apartment.

One balcony can be used for drying laundry, while the other one has a small sink on it where you can do the dishes. 

A nice place to do the dishes.

From the balcony you can see the small park in front of the building and the parking lot.
