I have seen sonkeaws on the western ring road and at the new bus station but I do not know if they are running a service or not.
Even when the light rail is complete we must still go into Khon Kaen to catch it the same as catching a songteaw service. There appears that there is no direct service operating through the Ban Pet area to the bus station

Lungbing, I do know the difference between a songteaw and a songkeaw and because of the service I was looking for I have not seen any songteaw service along the western ring road but I have seen songkeaws on the road in the area but did not know if any of them were a regular service to the bus station 3. I know that songteaws 3, 9, 8 and 10 operate from the old bus station to the new bus station but they operate past the markets opposite the post office, but I live in Uea Athon which adjoins the western ring road I was asking about a service that way that could possibly be operated by a songkeaw.
Thank you for your correction and your knowledge on what I was looking for.

I live near the western ring road between Milawan and La Nadi rds and it only takes me about 5 minutes to drive from home to the bus station but there are times that I need to get there without the car and I can walk from home to the ring road but otherwise I must catch the songkeaw into the city then another one to the bus station and it is not that easy to get a taxi out here. thanks mate

Now that the bus station 3 is in full operation does anyone know if there is a songkeaw service from Milawan Road area along the western side ring road to the bus station. I can catch a number 9 from Uea Athon into the post office then get another one from there to the bus station but I would be looking at around 1 hour travel that way when I live close to the western ring road between Milawan Road and the bus station
There are no new maps of the songkeaw services yet.
Thanks for the help

I need some parts for a Yamaha BD-115C Mio scooter, I have been to Yamaha Square between Ban Kok Road and Big C but they do not have what I need. I have seen other Yamaha bike shops around Khon Kaen but I cannot remember where I saw them. Could someone please give me the locations of any Yamaha bike shops that they know of. All help much appreciated.

This is the chart for day 7, there is no updates from this point to the total figures for the 7 dangerous days even if someone dies from injuries from day 1

According to,  Thailand only includes victims who died at the scene, while WHO statistics include persons that died within 30 days of the accident.Read more at
The statement by is incorrect.
Read your news reports from Bangkok Post, The Nation and Pbs Thai and you will see that the reports on day 1 for day 1 lists 39 deaths and then on day 3 it updates the figures for day 1 and now the deaths are 41, that is 2 more deaths that did not occur at the scene of the accident but did occur in the hospital and then on day 7 it updates to the final figures as 48 deaths on day 1. So from day 1 to day 7 the deaths for day 1 has increased by 9, those 9 died in hospital not at the scene of the accident.

Sorry Stevve but your statement that the ones that die on the way to or in hospital are not counted is incorrect.
Day 1 first report was that there was 39 deaths that is what was a direct figure from deaths at the scene but that number was updated to finish at 48 deaths for day 1 because the other deaths were from hospitals when the person died from injuries from an accident from day 1 for the whole 7 days the deaths have been updated on a daily basis as people died in hospital but now that day 7 has passed anyone who dies in hospital from any accident between day 1 and day 7 does not go onto the count for the 7 days.
Here is the totals at the finish of the 7 days there were updates of the deaths for the first 5 days but there has been no updates since.
 2018          Day 1     Day 2     Day 3     Day 4     Day 5     Day 6     Day 7     Total     Difference with 2017
Accidents      447         578         819         599         549        425         307        3724               +34
Injuries         452         610         847         617         571        464         336        3897               +89
Deaths           48           72           90           61           72           49           26         418                +28

If it is the lady that I am thinking of that is at desk 3 she is a very helpful lady and she has always been pleasant with everyone that I have seen her dealing with and those beautifully painted finger nails. Kajornsak it must be something that you have done because there is no way that she is what you claim she is.

What a hassle it has been trying to get Dry Ice, mypunch listed a website complete with a phone number but the address on the website did not show the correct location on Google Maps. We tried to ring the phone number for about 3 hours but no answer, I sent an email to the listed email address but again no answer, so the wife spent another 4 hours and three phone calls to Bangkok before we eventually got a location and it is nowhere near Lao Nardi Rd it is in a soi near Bangkok Hospital. In the search for the dry ice I found a much better system, it is an electronic system similar to the one on the ice cream bikes and it is quite cheap. There are 3 different sizes ranging from 66litre for 5500baht to a 120litre for 9500baht, all you do is plug it into the power overnight and it is good for 10-12 hours. Better than dry ice.
Thank you to everyone for you input into this, it is much appreciated.
