Concerning the hygiene in overall Thailand, Cambodia,Laos,China

After couple of my visits to Far Eastern countries, i am mostly perceived the lack of adequate hygienic materails such as soaps, detergents and napkins in shopping malls, bars, coffee shops, pubs in all those concerning cities of those countries. The best business is to open up a soap factory in those countries and sell most of those products to Far Eastern countries. Beware of thyphus, cholera, tb in those countries. Also street foods made me sick with dierreha really bad in the summer months. The smell of the foods are also disasterous. Thailand needs to be developed like western countries as the thai currency has really appreciated in couple of years and cities are very developed compared to middle east.
In Thailand , prices of food are also as high as Balkan countries and Middle East. 1 plate of steak is priced around 400 thai baht (15 USD),fish is also expensive around 250-300 baht(8-10 usd). In general Thailand has made advancements in her development and her citizen's salaries and wages. Foreign Direct Investment is also very high in the region . Average wages are between 250 USD-700USD per month nearly same as in Turkey. Cambodia is very attractive with 60USD/month monthly wage for investors.
As you know most of the electronic conglomerates are running factories in thailand because of lucrative and vibrant lifestyle and proximity to big markets.

Tanita Resort 
Hotel rooms available for 20 USD/night .Rated the best hotel in Udon Thani .
113 BannNongHauwMue, NadeeUdon Thani 41000Thailand 

The resort is about a 20min TukTuk ride from Udon Thani airport. Just ask the driver. The resort has 9 lovely houses at a little sea. Everything absolutly clean, a large bed, lakeview, moskitonets, minibar, terasse outside, aircon. If you like you can do fishing at the lake. The owner is very gentle, he drove us to the nightmarket in Udon Thani- for less. In the morning we got breakfast at our terasse- you can chose thai or american style. An after breakfeast, the owner drove us again in to Udon Thani bus station. He din´t take a bat- "service he said". The price was 29$ the night/room.
The setting is peaceful and quiet, close to nature. We enjoyed our stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms weeded clean and the mattresses were comfortable. The swimming pool was nice for all ages and had a nice view as it was by the lake. I would recommend this place to other families and groups.

Udon Thai House Thomas Resort Hotel 
Rooms for around 600 baht/night. 2nd best hotel in Udon Thani
119/10 Moo 2Udon Thani 41000Thailand

The guesthouse itself is something of a Garden of Eden, with plenty of vegetation, birds singing in their cages. The place suits those who drive around Thailand by car.
The rooms are spacious even the standard room I took was more than ample,clean and the added benefit of an in room safe. If I return to the area
and depending on availability I will be staying there again.It is 4 km outside the city center. 

Sinnakhone Hotel (20USD/night) 
Francois Ngin RoadVientianeLaos 
The room were comfortable and clean, the reception staff were friendly and obliging and the rooms were well serviced every day. Breakfast was a basic fried eggs and bread with tea or coffee but there are plenty of places nearby if you want to "top up" with an inexpensive early brunch.
Good location in the center of Vientiane
flew to Wattay Airport and the hotel offered a pick-up service for $7 total from the airport to the hotel which was great. The room and bathroom were a great size and breakfast was included in the price. The hotel is in a great location, only a 5 minute walk from most of the temples and over sights in the area. 

STC Homestay Hotel 
207 / Moo 11, Ban Si Bun LuangUdon Thani 41000Thailand 
This place has only 3 bungalows. 2 smaler are put togetter for families to join , The bungalow is a little bigger and is more for honeymoons or couples.
The STC Homestay Bed and Breakfast guest house is a short drive from the Udon Thani Airport. It is where you can learn about Thai Isaan culture and ways. The walks near the lake and through the small villages give you a sense of what rural Thailand is truly like.

The room included a tv, wifi, films and player, fridg, tables for work inside and out and more. It is clean, beautiful and if you should need anything all you have to do is pick up the phone and call the owner's house next door. 

The food is out of this world. It is better than most 5 star restaurants and the owners are kind,
and also know what to do in and around the city of Udon. If you don't have a car there are bicycles and other ways to get around. It is a beautiful hide away where you can get rest, or work or explore the area. I recommend this BB without reservation.

Udon Star Hotel 
Watthana Nuwong 75/3Udon Thani 41000Thailand 

The Thai host was very nice and she cooked us breakfast every morning. The deluxe room was like being in a condo. The over sized air conditioning worked great and there was a ceiling fan over the bed which could be operated by remote control. The bed was large and comfortable with nice thread count sheets. Flat screen TV with cable and a modern clean bathroom with bath tub was super! There is a small gym on the second floor and a lounge area where you can watch TV. Walking distance to shopping malls. I have nothing negative to report about this place.

Restaurants in Udon Thani

American - Harry's Bar & Restaurant on Banliam bypass (western ring-road opposite the boat beer garden).
Chinese - Chiants (but the sign outside is Chinese and Thai) next to the Ayutthaya Bank in Prajak Road, a Dim Sum restaurant.
English - Kinnaree in Soi Don Udom (close to the airport) provides English and Thai food.
Fish - Nongsai Fishing Park in Ban Nongsai or Ban Hoolee Restaurant (which tickles my other half because hoolee is a very rude word).
         You will need local help to locate these places and to be honest they are only average.
French - The Factory in Adunyadet Road. Can't say any more, I don't like french food, but others say it is good.
Fusion - Good Everything in Phoniyom Road next to Nong Prajak Park. Mind blowingly good food.
Irish - Irish Clock in Sampantamitr Road behind Lum Udom night market.
Thai & English - Greenleaf Restaurant opposite the train station in Prajak Sillapakom gets rave reviews.
Thai (evening restaurant) - Kalasin Goong Pao, Ban Khao (Route 2021) just outside Udon.
There is a Moo Yang in Kut Chap which is pretty good but again you will need help to find it.
