Ubon Ratchatani,Thailand a Station That Will Make you Smile, Well At Least Not Scream

6-29-12Bus stations in Isaan, Northeast Thailand seem go go from low, to new all time low. Of course there are some exceptions, but generally you wish you had gone to the toilet before you got there. Dirty, smelly places.
Correct directions and assistance in any language are often frequent as hens teeth in the bus stations of the region and come to think of it train stations might be even worse.
But, now for the good news the Bus Station in Ubon Ratchatani is clean, staff helpful and the food is good, plentiful and clean.
The e-guideubon does not seem to be much help in any language, and nevermind the apparatus does not work anyhow. One thing that would be useful at all these public places would be wifi
The menu at the eatery was even bilingual to include English. I did a stroll around behind the station and even hidden areas were clean and orderly. Taxis lined up to pickup passengers in a proper queue not jus loitering about. Even had basic shower facilities for the workers out back.
I do not know  what entity operates the station, I believe it is the Municipality, but whoever does operate it should be congratulated on running one of the cleanest, best operated bus stations in Isaan.
Unfortunately the same cannot be said about the product the rolls out of there. More later……
