Dark Skin or Light Skin Thai Girls

In the west we have a saying "Blondes have more fun". In Thailand we have a saying "darker girls have more fun". I get asked all the time and you get this too i'm sure, Thai women will ask "Why do Farang like dark girls". For years I tried to explain that it's not really a color thing but that for whatever reason you're more likely to get hit on or have success with a darker skinned Thai girl than you are otherwise.

That was a pretty in-depth conversation and I'm honestly bored of the question so these days I simply answer:

"Darker girls are better in Bed!"

To my experience thus far and you can correct me in the comments but it's honestly been the case for me that darker girls are just more fun in the sack. But there are much more differences to Thai's than just the color of ones skin and as far as I know most guys could give a shit what color a girl is if she's hot she's hot. But it's a good idea to know about the cultural differences in Thailand. Not all Thai's are equal either and many have different cultural characteristics. I'm not saying all These people are the same but it's fair to make rough generalizations of particular groups of people. That said their's no real one Thai but more like 4 main cultural groups.

1. Northern Culture
2. Eastern Culture
3. Central Culture
4. Southern Culture

And then you have different sub cultures within that, mountain, city, Pattaya, country, the truth is depending on where a Thai girl comes from and family standing in society will determine a lot of her Behavior and beliefs.

Northern girls are more light skinned than the others but are terrible to date, and if your a foreigner even worse because northern girls believe that western guys don't like them so your less likely for them to show any interest because they don't think they have a chance, also Chiang Mai is the mecca for lesbians and butch dikes so finding a good looking girl that actually likes guys too is half the challenge. Northern girl parents are also more likely to tell their kids not go out with foreign men, unlike eastern girls.

Southern girls are too religious for my liking and if she's interested in you it's likely just to get in your pocket. Eastern girls are the most fun, they have darker skin, they believe their looks are the best match for a foreign guy. This region is poor but many of them, their parents tell them to get a foreign guy so they can support them as well.

Not all southern and Isaan girls are dark skinned either many from the North east have lighter skin being near Laos but the southern areas of Isaan closer to Cambodia are going to be darker.

Central girls are more likely to be tanned better educated and are open either way to westerners or not they are less likely to care about cultural boundaries this is more true the closer you get to Bangkok.

So I wonder what you guys think, you think the darker girls have more fun in Thailand or in my mind more fun?

    Chiang Mai girls don’t like foreigners? Wow, too bad, I think the white skinned look is the best myself. Plus I like them educated, so eastern girls are not really for me.

    I agree with charlieboz. Personally (and again it’s just my preference), I’m more into the Bangkok girls (like the university girls) while the Essan and dark skinned girls are not appealing to me. Plus, yes, I also like girls that are educated and have stuff going for them.

    I just need a horny young hottie, dark or white skin whatever! 🙂
    Education? Yes, it’s important if you are looking for a wife, but I don’t, hahaha 555!

    I’m not sure about connecting location and sex skills but one thing is sure in my opinion: educated Thai women are frigid as fuck in most cases !

    Country girls with genuine interest in the western culture are the best because they are pretty clever and open-minded by nature. Most of them are looking for emancipation and are super curious about sex.

    If she likes shitty isaan music, romantic thai films and is the mother of two. Man, there’s no point…

    Thailand is in fact Africa in the east with black majority and white minority. People of northern white blood (white Dai Race of Altai Mountains, white Mon-Khmer of today China and recently chinese) in the northern east asian part migrated to the south (today Thailand) and married black race of thick black skin or negro race like the black wife of Obama for thousand years, whitening the black race to the extent that the black majority become thin dark skin (lighter but still like charcoal skin), dark brown and medium brown (still dark). A vast number of people are a mixed race of blacks and whites.

    Whether your become dark or light skinned depends on the ratio of white blood against black blood. A person with high white blood (80%) and black blood (20) generally light skin like southern chinese. I myself am a mixed race of white mon-khmer plus white Dai Race for 75% from motherhood and black race of 25% (from my fatherhood), and my skin is the same light as chinese in general. I am sure of my light skin because I went to China twice, and chinese people there started to talk with me in chinese language, misunderstanding that i am a chinese girl. No people on earth knows I have some black ancestry. “White milk with some dark chocolate juice remains white”. People with so high white blood (with some black ancestry) is a minority group or the smallest. The vast number of people are generally dark brown, and light brown as their white ancestry is not a lot higher than their black ancestry.

    Our Thai kings have are very light skinned people with significant white blood of white mon-khmer and Dai race.

    Thai Chinese are generally dark, not light skinned because chinese men hardly married light skinned girls of white ancestry majority like me, and few of them have light skin. Many of my friends who have chinese blood are dark like charchoal, and dark brown.

    Thailand is a land colonized by white race from the north. Mon-khmer of white skin (from today’s china) first defeated black kings in the southeast asia (Thailand, Burma and Loas) and colonized the blacks into speaking their mon-khmer language for 2-3 thousand years. years. The blacks lost their black language and started speaking mon-khmer language. Colonization of blacks by white mon-khmer was soft assimilation-based colonization and the blacks were tought by the white mon-khmer colonizer to be think that they are mon-khmer race, too.

    Later, about 700 years ago, white Dai Race of Altai Mountains sucessfully conquerred Khmer Empire (Loas and Thailand) ruled by white khmer kings. White Dai Race ruled us all in Khmer Empire and converted Khmer Empire into white Dai Race-led kingdoms (Lanna, Lan Xang, and Siam). All people in Khmer Empire (black and white) lost their mon-khmer language and now can speak Tai Ka Dai language.

    That is why people in Thailand today have 2 main cultures: Mon-Khmer Culture and Dai Race Culture.

    The key culture of Thai royal court is white Dai Race based as our Thai kings wear a long robe and a high hat like a mongolian people do. The Dai Race culture is like a mongolian, korean, manchu culture.

      The most ignorant, bigot and uneducated comment have read in my life. You should go back read history of your country if you are really Thai. I wonder where did you learn this bullshit. It doesn’t look good on your intellectual quotient, must be so low.

    The author is right when saying thailand has 4 different cultures, but is still a little bit wrong in describing her 5 main diverse cultures and 5 main different dialects. and most of the country cannot understand what southerners say.

    More than half of people in thailand’s capital city are immigrants. these immigrants speak different dialects. real bangkokians are rich and the richest, but they are the fewest. Dark people spread over all thailand. Even in the north, there are stil a lot of blacks.

    When the author says “eastern culture”, i do not understand. because the real eastern part of thailand covers the land in the eastern central part of the country, and pattaya is there but very nearest to the northeast part (Isan).

    It is better to distinguish people in thailand based on their 5 main different dialects or languages they speak and 5 ancient Kingdoms. Why 5 ancient Kingdoms? This is because siam people (especially western central plain people or ancient Siam Kingdom) successfully combined other 4 ancient kingdoms to constitute their Siam or Thailand today. Thai people are as follows:
    1. Northwestern people or the northern people are people of Ancient Lanna Kingdom. They are lanna people. They speak Lanna Dialect. They are the lighest and considered to be ethnically closest to thai blood. Prime Ministers Thaksin and Yingluck are lanna people.
    2. Upper northeast people are people of ancient Lan Xang Kingdom or Loas. They are upper Isan people. They speak Laotian language. They tend to dark. They are the largest in number.
    3. Lowest northeast people are people of northern Cambodia. They are lowest Isan people. They speak like khmer people in Cambodia. They are small in number. Thai famous martial arts actor Tony Jaa is a khmer born out of Surin, a province in this sphere.
    4. Southern people are people of ancient Srivichai Kingdom plus former northern Malaysia They are Bak Dai People or southern people from Chumporn province (the south of Prachuabkiri Khan, a province located south of Bangkok to Malaysia. They speak Dampro language, which cannot be understood by the rest of the country.
    4. Eastern people are people located in provinces to the east of the capital city and up to the provinces near to Cambodia. They speak eastern dialect, which is similar to siam dialect but is still obviously diffferent. Pattaya is here but near to Isan northeast part to the north.
    5. Western central plain people are people located in provinces to the west of the capital city, who are people in Ancient Siam Kingdom or Siam proper. They speak siam dialect whose accents may vary from one province to anther in Siam proper. They are in fact siam people (Ayudthaya, Sukhotai, Supanburi, Lopburi, Pitsanulok, Ang Thong, Nakorn Patom, Rachaburi, Kanchanaburi, Prachuabkirikhan, upper Petchaburi). The military training center must be conducted here. People here cook Tom Yum Gung sour pawn soup. All Thai kings speak siam dialect of Ayudthaya city, which is today’s capital city dialect and the national official language. Siam dialect is generally called “central thai dialect”.

    1. Northern Culture
    2. Eastern Culture
    3. Central Culture
    4. Southern Culture

    I had sex experience with many thai women and i dont think is a matter of colour, but of sex desire. In somehow brown skin women look more exciting for sex, but after a while we get tired and discover that White skin never make you tired, Always stimolate our desire, whyle brown skin do the opposite,,,,,,buy is my direct experience opinion

    Light skin Thai girls are taken by Rich Thai guys or high society guys.

    Tan skin girls not preference for Thailand.

    Watch Thai TV and you will see loads of light skin girl.

    Most rich Thai people, around 99% is chinese immigration. Therefore, light skin people will be likely to rich in Thailand.
