    Some comments from typical Thai lady.

    » Just some comments from Thai lady side, please be known that my comments are from only my experience. Why do we look down Farang with dark woman? - They don't have the minimum standard for their wife. ( I have no complain marrying with bar girl. What the reason do you choose her to be your...

    • Anonymous commented : Thai lady, I agree that Thailand is seen by some as a land of freedom and people do what they would not do at home, but that same thing occurs in many high density tourist places all over the world. What you describe is not unique or exclusive to Thailand.

    • Anonymous commented : hi thai lady.i was waiting for long time to hear such a comment.i think thai people is normally too polite to tell somebody how to behave in public.everyday here in koh chang i witness bad behaviours by my fellow farangs,the thais seem to be used to that,and don't complain,but i feel ashamed to be european when i see the tourists don't have a clue of thai traditions.i think it's worth to be aware of your guest-country customs,as soon as you step in.i feel better in asia than in europe,even uneducated people here is more polite than the average in my country.regards,mau

    Just to express my feeling.

    » Dear All, I have read many interesting topics here. Mostly, were written about Thai women. Some have bad experience with bar girls, but saying in the big picture as Thai women. Those who have been suffered from bar girls questioned why do bad stories hit them and blamed their ex. I, as a not-bar...

    • Anonymous commented : Hi PS; Farangs or any Thai men going for bar-girls should accept the girls have a job to do. They have no right to feel cheated if the girl has other men around her. I also completely agree with the rest of your post. There are 30 million Thai ladies in Thailand in various ages. Why not try to get acquainted with normal ladies? PS; I am afraid Thai men and Farang men are basically the same, just as Thai ladies and any other lady in this world are basically the same. If you pick up someone in a bar it is because you are a bar-girl or a bar boy. You will most probably get the wrong kind. Never mind if it happens in Europe or Thailand. The result will inevitably usually be the same. As you write; cause and effect… I guess many farangs get into Thailand on a 30 day tourist visa ad take the first and the best girl, just making problems for both parties. Better if people spent a little time for the right man or woman. However PS, I have heard about several good and lasting relationships amongst Bar girls and farang tourists. What concerns your ex-(farang) boyfriend I think he got what he deserved. Best regards, Hans

    • Anonymous commented : PS .............Because its very difficult to approach any Thai girl who does not work in a bar, whereas bar girls are easy to speak with.

    Living in an Isarn Village

    By Anonymous, Created on: 01/01/2008, Last updated on: 17/04/2010

    » I have been several times visiting my girlfriend’s village in Isarn, near Mukdahan. First time I was there I felt in love with the place and immediately wanted to build a house and spend part of my time living there. The place appeared to me so nice and authentic, the rice fields, the vegetation,...

    • Anonymous commented : Ian Jan 06 Hi Ian, you see, that’s what happens when you are too stingy with your beer!!!

    • Anonymous commented : Rooster Jan 06 Hi Rooster, thank you for your post. You are right! I am an urban “cowboy”. I have live all of my life in urban areas and fail miserably to appreciate the delight and benefits of life in the country. For me rural life is to be taken in small dosage, failing to do that could cause me a great deal of stress and anxiety. My respect and admiration to rural life, what a charming picture! the problem is that the spell doesn’t last very long. I must admit I don’t belong to that world and never will be. But it happens that I am in love with a young lady who lives in a tiny Isarn village. Silly? Yes, I admit it. The obvious and easy thing to do would be to drop her and find another one in a more appropriate and civilize surround. The problem is that I don’t want, I want her. Oh poor little heart! Having said that, what I am trying to do is to achieve a point of compromise between her rural life and my urban life. Something tells me that pulling out that girl from her roots and bringing her to the West would make her feel lost and unhappy never mind how much comfort she has. It also seems terribly selfish on my part to sacrifice her happiness so that I feel great. So what I do? For instance I try to do my homework. I take notice of people like you and Colin (God bless him for kindly sharing with me and others his own experience and know how), I learn and try to make up my mind about what to do and how to do it. No rush, one step at a time. Most appreciate your words and interest. Juan
