They speak a dialect of Lao, which is somewhat mutually intelligible with Thai, and also consider themselves ethnic Lao, but I assume they think of themselves as just as Thai as other Thais? Or do they relate more with the lowland Lao people? Or are they seen as almost a separate ethnic minority within Thailand?

Is it really true that MOST of the bargirls/working girls you see in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket.etc are from Isan? What about urban regions or the Northeast or South?

What are some regional features of the culture, cuisine.etc of Isan? How are they viewed by say Thais from Bangkok or Chiang Mai or Hat Yai?

I wonder if there are any stats to prove this? Isaan has 15 million out of a nation of 65 million. Why would the majority of bargirls be from this region? I know it's poor, but aren't other regions of Thailand poor too? What about the North-West (e.g. Chiang-Rai and Chiang-Mai), the South? Bangkok is 50% slums, surely many poor urban girls from BKK work in the city's bars??

well according ti nautpong the lao bar girls from issan are ethnically the same people as the thai siamese....its just that issan is alot poorer then most of thailand....laos afterall is a very poor country even by SEAsian standards

slum girls are physically dirty...no one would want to sleep with them...thats probably why you dont see many slum girls working as BG in thailand
