Issan Women

Recommended Posts

QUOTE(Neeranam @ 2006-12-16 22:40:00)

OP - I'd recommend coming to Issarn and looking for a woman. Do a tour of the major cities and go out and meet them. Of course, if you can't speak Thai, you may have problems. The way I met lots of girls(in Bangkok) was to go shopping and ask the salesgirl out.

I've only been in Isarn for about 2 1/2 years but have met some very beautiful women. I had an Isarn girlfriend about 12 years ago, who I thought was totally stunning. In hindsight, she wasn't.

I ended up with a girl from, central Thailand, which I think has the most beautiful women. But then again who is going to say that women from where their wives are from are ugly?

I'd advise you to come and look - you wouldn't want to hitch up with a beautiful girl and come here and find that she relatively ugly compared to the rest.

Hang out at one of the expat bars and you'll soon find some of their wives trying to match you up.

Good luck.

i am glad we got that sorted out then. some people just aint as eloquent as they ought'r be and opinions are like a**eholes, we all got one... etc..

but quite a few of you old (and not so old) worthies got really hot under the collar and i noted that pattaya got mentioned several times in a less than favorable context, nothing specific but alluding to being not a nice place? or the esaarn girls you find there are something to be avoided? should the OP avoid the place for any particular reason?

What are you saying? I never mentioned Pattaya.

Pattaya is not a nice place.

Esarn girls in Pattaya - well that's not a real brainer is it?

OP - yes, avoid Pattaya at all costs - it's where the prostitutes go.

Neeranam... I didn't specifically say you had mentioned Pattaya, but observed that several others have in a disparaging way. But now that I have mentioned it, you have trashed the place and the Issan girls that work there. Once again, just an observation, I take it that you lived there before?

Never lived there, I don't like it. I've never trashed Isaan girls. I've been doing some work at a rehab./detox facility in Issarn for a couple of years and find

the whole Pattaya scene very, very sad.

I'm not going to get involved in this thread, and share my experiences, as there will be some members here who met their Issarn wives in Pattaya - they may well be the lucky 1 %. No offence intended.

The Esaan look is very boring and common , in fact they are dime a dozen where ever you go - especially in the bar scene , if that is were you go looking for you wife before moving up to Nakon Nowhere with her :D

I am sending this fool a warning for disrespectful comments.

I was going to edit his posts but it may serve us as a reminder of what a bigot's post looks like.

He does seem to have an almighty chip there!

Back to the OP, I think you have been reading or have heard of an article of 'research' on how farang husbands may be modifying Isaan culture, specifically female habits. There are other threads on that article elsewhere on this forum but these claims don't seem to be based on any in-depth, academic study. Seems more like some media spin on some half-baked theories? I think you need to take some leads from the more reasoned posts here and do your own research, maybe meet with some farangs who have Issarn relationships, good and bad. You live in Sattahip so your nearest Isaarn 'community' will be in Pattaya. You should take everything you hear about that place, good or otherwise with a pinch of salt. Spend time 'up country' as well but always keep an open mind.

Vespa, Vespa,

You sound like a person whom is in the wrong country. If you don't particularly like Thai people & it seems the LoS itself, why are you here? ("well, I was in Paris last year and ..." is not the right answer).

Around my lovely little village (yes, mine. As the only local Aussie I am priveliged to have been adpoted by the locals) there are quite a number of stunners. A wander around Chaiyapum only enhances the sentiment.

If you have been so badly rejected by one or more Thai women, perhaps you need to look at your approach.

Vespa, how much time have you spent in Issan?

What is your version of the real Thailand?

How much Thai history do you know?

Would you be surprised to find that all of the countries in this region have links to China?

For the original op yes you can go to the bars and find any number of Issan girls, or you can skip that little number and come to Issan. find a city not over loaded with farrangs, Udon would not be my choice for what you are thinking of. Khan Kean maybe lots of university girls. NKP would be ideal, do you speak Thai? If not it might be very difficult.

As far as if they are nice, well people are people good and bad, no matter what region, the same for appearances. But life experience does effect how a person approaches life. I doubt that the bar life is an easy one and that could very well effect a person approach to life. But if you don't speak Thai that would probably be the easiest approach.

The other would be to find and use an interuputer, romance here is not the same here as the western world and sometimes some very direct conversations can get you by and lead to what you are asking for. Courtship between an Issan girl and a farrang when they don't speak the same language, is more like a business deal. You will do this and she will do that. Then with time you learn to communicate with eachother. Not easy my friend, but it can be done.

But if you do don't expect what you have seen in Pattaya, here they are actually very shy. But if your patient you can probably find a lady that suits your liking

Ray: PLEASE!!!

What have the KK uni girls done to you to deserve that treatment?

They may be country girls, but they aslo have standards... ;-)

There have been a number of reports lately about marriages between Issan women and farangs bringing prosperity to parts of Issan and the women becoming farang in their eating habits. Successly relationships they seem to be generally

I am 2 years now seperated and live alone but would like to meet and possibly reside in Issan. Where do you meet prospective wives? The bars are really risky and agencies are just money making machines so it must be personal introduction friend of a friend I guess any advice on this. I don't live in Pattaya but down in Sattahip

Constructive advice only please

John

Isaan women tend to be ugly , there are many available Thai women mixed with Chinese blood that are very attractive and unlike Issan women they do not all look alike.

Why not set your goals a little bit higher ?

I am thai woman and isaan woman. Why you say woman isaan not pretty?

Maybe you are not so handsome. if you can't be nice, go home

I don't get the interest in only Isaan women for a wife. You quote good marriages but in what way? Although I am not saying that all Isaan girls are bar girls when they obviously aren't , a relationship with an Isaan bargirl or bargirl from anywhere for that matter is going to be different to a relationship and marriage based on love, respect etc.

But maybe that is what you want is a marriage which is primarily based on money.

If not then surely look for a wife from anywhere, whether from Isaan, Thailand or anywhere!!

For those that quote Isaan women as so wonderful, may I ask why? What makes them better than women anywhere else in Thailand or the world? Or again is it because your marriage has an economic agreement?

Probably get flamed for this.......... :o

Never said Isaan women were better than any where else in Thailand. Just defending them against the views of Myopic Vespa. Thailand has beautiful girls everywhere. Just so happens my wife is from Isaan and I believe she does love me.

(reaching for matches) lol

I can only suggest the Isaan request for a female partner being for one of appearances initially, everyone has their favoured 'look' for a female, and I can only assume mr OP likes the darker skinned thai lady typical of Isaan area?

If I was looking for a wife, or long term partner I too would prefer an Isaan looking lady as I too find them dangerously attractive. :o Theres something about the dark skin, almost hard faced (cue the ladyboy gags) Isaan look that I find so appealing

sure theres great women in every country, of all shapes, colours and sizes and as in these countries, there's probably women from/in Isaan who may well be bad news. Again, this is the case world wide but mr OP I guess ultimately would love a nice lady with Isaan looks and I for one can not fault him on that

Happy hunting mr OP :D

OP - yes, avoid Pattaya at all costs - it's where the prostitutes go.

Says more about you mate, leave Pattaya out of it. :o

News flash - ladies in the profession go to BKK, CM, Samui, Phuket also - so I guess that makes those places rather sad too. :D Pattaya is no worse than any of the other spots I mentioned, my very ill-informed lad. :D

we're flogging a dead horse (or should that be dead buffalo?) here britmav, there seems a select few who either do not like the Isaan look or have probably been had over by an Isaan lass at some point and are still adament they are 100% right :o

Isaan features on a female? :D:D:D:D:bah::bah::o;):D
