isaan region of thailand
Is it safe to go on hoilday to Thailand next month with all the protests and stuff?
Thailand is not a safe country and never has been. The Thai police are the most corrupt in Indo China. The Judicial system is just a facade, the judges are all corrupt and anyone in power can be bought, anyone in trouble can buy their way out “Chiang Noi in the Thai Judicial system”, look it up on the net and as you do look up “Thai police corruption.” You’ll see that there are people who have been shot, wrongly imprisoned, abducted, sold, raped and robbed. Tourists are mainly left alone, but they sometimes kill, rob or imprison them and if you get noticed by them it will be you. The myriad girls in bars pay the police in kind or in cash, because prostitution is illegal there, but nobody will stop it because it brings in billions of dollars from tourism. Don’t blame the bar girls for being the best liars in the world, their beauty is ephemeral, they don’t have long to make their fortune, so they will say anything to get more money. Most bar girls are from the northeast a region called Isaan, a very poor place, but the best people and food in Thailand. If you go to Thailand stay clean, don’t look at police and whenever there’s trouble…leave. If the police catch you in the same bar as a drug addict you could end up in prison forever. You have no rights in Thailand, it is a dictatorship, it is not a democratic country. Get into the slightest trouble there and you will see. Chock dee (good luck) .
isaan region of thailand
It was only yesterday that I made two related posts about the Isaan Region, so please refer to them — I have absolutely no desire to be repeating myself already:
A few further websites that I have not already included in those two posts which might be of interest follow:
- KnutAngstrom.se: Isaan
- Doug’s Republic: Isaan Region
- Destiny Thailand: Isaan: Northeast Region of Thailand
- Kingdom-of-Thailand.com: Northeastern Thailand (Isaan)
- Woodlands-Junior.kent.sch.uk: Isaan in Northeast Thailand
- Siamsmile: Isaan Dialect
I am adding the following somewhat related references in a September 11 (2012) post edit:

Or is the very fact that we are alive proof that its not a waste.
5 trips to Thailand, 2 trips to Japan, lived in Japan in 2005 & 2006, 1 trip to Taiwan, 1 trip to Guam; graduating with my MA degree in May – my thesis is being published, starting a 2nd Master’s degree program in fall with a top University; writing a travel guide to the Isaan region of Thailand which I intend to self-publish.
