Lao girls has to be the most stunning girls in Southeast-Asia in my opinion. They carry themselves with such style and elegance that I took myself in staring at groups of Lao women that walked past me.
The Lao language is very similar to how they talk in northeast of Thailand (Isaan). I’ve also read that the girls in Laos look very similar to the girls in Isaan. But, I have to disagree. I think they looked much more Chinese than they looked Thai or Isaan. They were taller, slimmer, had big lips and very white skin.
I spoke with several Lao girls while I was in Laos, and they are much more shy than Thai girls. Most are very conservative and many wear the traditional dress called ‘the sinh’. I love these traditional dresses.
They are not supposed to be sexy, and they certainly don’t show much skin or curves. But I still find them sexy in a strange way. 😀
Here are some ideas on how you can meet and date Lao girl inside and outside of Laos.
1: Meet them in Laos
Duuh. No shit Tim. Why are you telling me this?
Here’s the deal. Going to Laos to meet Lao girls might not be as fun as you think. Most of them are very conservative and you’ll probably have a hard time hooking up. If you are coming from Thailand, where just being white is enough for endless amount of pussy, you’re going to loose your motivation fast in Laos.
Here is another problem with dating Lao girls in Laos.
IT’S ILLEGAL TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM UNLESS YOU MARRY THEM.
Yes, you heard that right. Banging a Lao woman can get you in serious trouble with the law. Tourists have paid up to 5000$ in fines while the girl you banged risk ending up in prison without trial for a long time.
Just read this quote:
Relationship with Lao citizens: Lao law prohibits sexual contact between foreign citizens and Lao nationals except when the two parties have been married in accordance with Lao Family Law. Any foreigner who enters into a sexual relationship with a Lao national risks being interrogated, detained, arrested, or fined. Lao police have confiscated passports and imposed fines of up to $5,000 on foreigners who enter into unapproved sexual relationships. The Lao party to the relationship may be jailed without trial. Foreigners are not permitted to invite Lao nationals of the opposite sex to their hotel rooms; police may raid hotel rooms without notice or consent.
Fucked up? Yes!
When I traveled between Vientiane, Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang I saw several police check points where police checked people’s documents. At one point my bus was also stopped and two police officers came inside the bus to inspect. There was a white dude who was traveling around with a Thai girl. She was asked to show her passports so the police could check if she was Lao national.
As soon as you get outside the bigger cities of Laos there is nothing but small villages where people live in huts. Most roads are gravel, and not asphalt. I saw a lot of beautiful woman out of my bus window but dating them would be impossible because of Lao Family Law. These people live in small communities where everyone knows everything about each other. Let me give you an example:
When I was driving around outside Vang Vieng people knew I was coming before I arrived. Everyone was constantly talking with people on their phones talking about stuff that is happening around them. So if you ever tried to date a girl outside the bigger cities, everyone would know it instantly.
If you absolutely want to date Lao girls in Laos the capital Vientiane would be your best spot in my opinion, but you have to be very careful as many hotels will call the authorities on you as soon as you enter your hotel room with a Lao chick.
Vientiane is the city in Laos you will have the most luck dating Lao girls. The city has a small dating scene that is going on in the most popular bars and nightclubs. Here you will find Lao girls that can speak English, are open minded, Westernized and educated.
Still, you have to be careful as you never know if the girl can be on team with the local authorities. Set-ups do happen unfortunately.
A lot of Lao girls was hanging out around the Mekong promenade around sunset time. Girls would sit for themselves playing with their phone, reading a book or just watching the sunset. I guess hooking up with some of them would be very possible if you found one that talks a little bit English.

3: Meet Lao girls in Thailand
You will probably have much more success dating Lao girls in Thailand. The fact that the girl went all the way to Thailand to look for greener grass is a good teller that she’s a little bit more ‘adventurous’ than the average Lao girl that never left her village or family.
Not only that, in Thailand you wont get arrested for banging Lao chicks. That’s a huuuge advantage. 🙂 1 point to Thailand there.
So where can you meet Lao girls in Thailand?
They are in fact more places than you think. They are just hard to spot as they look similar to Thai people and there is no orange poster in their forehead blinking “LAO”.
Here where I live now in Bangkok there are 2 girls from Lao working as housekeepers together with a girl from Myanmar. They do laundry, cleaning and other simple tasks for the people who live here.
Most Lao girls who come to Thailand work illegally, so you won’t find them in any big established businesses like H&M or McDonald’s. Most of them work in small family businesses in bigger cities such as Bangkok.
I also met a lot of Lao girls in cities in Isaan. Nong Khai, Udon Thani and Khon Kean to mention some of them.
4: Dating sites
There is no dating site that targets only Lao girls, but if you sign up for Asian Dating you can sort by country, choose Laos, and get up a lot of girls that lives in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.
Worth a shot. 🙂
5: In Thailand’s bar scene
I’ve met several cute Lao girls in bars all over Thailand. But in Isaan, especially Nong Khai and Udon Thani there seems to be a bigger concentration of them than Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket. Probably because it’s much closer to Laos geographically.
So as you can see. You have some choices if you want to date Lao girls. However, it’s much harder compared to lets say Thailand. The law is against you and most girls are very conservative that lives with their family until they get married.
