Why i’m going to Isaan and small town Thailand
You know I've been pretty harsh on Isaan girls and while i'm not flip flopping my article on why you should stay away from Isaan girls as it still has a lot of merit I feel like i'm not exactly being fair to the brown Thai girls of Isaan. See the only interaction I've really had with isaan girls are those from the bars and go go's which is a profession that girls from Isaan seem to get themselves into. But hey, girls from central and northern Thailand seem to be coyote and g-club which those girls can be just as bad if not worse than the bar girls.
Recently I went on a 10 day trip through the heart of Thailand and met some fantastic girls, some were even dare I say "from Isaan!". These girls were warm friendly and unpretentous and never once asked a dime from me, one girl even bought me noodles! Most small town girls are virgins into their twenties, whereas girls in Pattaya lose it in their early teens.
Thing about small town Thailand is the people are so friendly and are willing to do anything to help you out. There is very limited English spoken in these smaller towns but for me as you know is not a problem. Sometimes and I'm guilty of this is when you live in the tourist cities of Chiang Mai, Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket you forget or in many cases never really see the kind generous nature of Thai people. You don't walk down the street with people staring at you with kind eyes and smiles that can stop a train. These days in Chiang Mai you walk down the street and the Thai's look the other way or in Pattaya where they are just looking at you as the next ATM machine, but in small towns like Lomsak and Phetchabun people look at you with keen interest and sometimes with lust.
I read on some bloggers page how he was raving about Pattaya that there were something like 20-30,000 thousand girls there. Most of which are not g/f material and without 2-3000 baht they won't get into the sack with you. It made me think, Isaan is home to 20 million people a million of which are girls 18-25. So I could go for a trip to Pattaya and spend 5000 baht a day banging one girl, or I could go to Isaan and spend 1000 baht a day on food accommodation transport etc and have an unlimited choice. Sure if your on holiday you wouldn't do it, but I live in Thailand I have the time so I'm not going to waste it on some bar girl who'll leave as soon as I stop paying the fine.
While you may not be able to speak Thai it doesn't really matter, most girls have enough pigeon English that if they like you the language barrier will not be a problem. Thing about small Towns in Thailand is the girls who live there that really like Farang but have pretty much ZERO opportunity to meet a Farang. They live on their small farm with their family they rarely go out much, they study and come home, only time they see a Farang is if they go to Big C or Lotus and those guys are there with their wives. See what happens when they see a single Farang just hanging around and it can be as simple as standing in front of 7 Eleven which happened to me in Nakhon Sawan.
I've got this whole routine down now with going to the temple, eating noodles, then back to watch a movie at my hotel. These small towns in Thailand are so boring there is literally nothing to do, it's even hard to find a decent coffee shop to sit at, but girls are plenty and most have only been poked a few times if at all.
This trip i'm going into the heart of Isaan Korat and Khon Kaen to see if the girls there are as real as they are up north, are Isaan girls who live in Isaan are as bad as the ones you find on Loi Kroh, Nana, Patong, or Pattaya. I've yet to go but I'm pretty sure of the answer already. Have you been to Isaan what's your experience?
This is my intended travel route i'll be gone about 21 days:

Getting to some of these towns can be a real pain in the ass too. Flights only go to the major destinations and while you can get flights to places like Lomsak you have to go to Bangkok first and since I'm in Chiang mai it's a hassle, and I hate flying especially in small craft so I'll be busing it.

If you've never been to these cities then don't worry I'm going to have it all mapped out and some interesting reads in the VIP section of the website so that if you decide to do a similar trip you know exactly where to go, where to hire a bike, where to stay and where to find the girls. Things that are much easier to find out if you speak Thai, i'll make the mistakes and you can get the benifits when you travel. Therefore this will be my last public post this month.
You can see i'm spending a lot of time in Phetchabun, why? There is absolutely nothing there! While there may not be anything to see the girls in this town are the friendliest and easiest I've ever seen in Thailand. But who knows I might get to Isaan and think it's even better. Which me luck and if your in town on those dates please let me know.
