When Western men look for Asian wives they tend to go to familiar countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, or increasingly, China. But there are plenty of other Asian countries where it is possible to find Asian women seeking foreign husbands. One such country is Laos. Bordering Vietnam, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, Thailand and China, Laos is a small landlocked country in South East Asia.
Why Seek Laotian Women for Marriage?
Men seeking Laotian brides tend to be those who have travelled to Laos, and have a particular affinity to the country. Other men think that even women in China, Thailand and the Philippines have become far too Westernised, so they look for Asian brides from less well developed countries.
Laos is a less well known Asian country. However, tourism to Laos is rapidly growing as increasing numbers of tourists seek a more relaxed way of life in a relatively unspoilt part of SE Asia.
Finding Laos Women Online
There don't appear tobe any large scale Laotian dating sites online like there are for countries like Thailand, China or the Philippines. There are however a few Laotian women on DateInAsia. DateInAsia is a popular free Asian dating site, and it claims to have over one million members. At the time of writing there were approximately 200 Laotian women on the site. However, bear in mind that free dating sites attract a lot of less serious members, so not all of the profiles will be active.
Other problems I've experienced with DateInAsia include the fact that the site's search facility is very basic. On top of that I've had a low quality of response on the site, and one of the women to contact me was actually a call girl. Personally I prefer the subscription sites that charge a membership fee, as the sites have better search facilities and the site administrators do a better job of keeping the scammers and undesirables off the site.
That's just my opinion though, and DateInAsia is very popular with men looking for Filipina wives and girlfriends. Filipinas are so numerous on dating sites that it's not usually worth taking out a paid subscription to a dating site.
Alternatives to DateInAsia include Cherry Blossoms and Asian Dating (AsianEuro). Both Asian dating sites have women from a wide range of countries, so they are good sites to use if you're not totally sure you want to find an Asian bride from a particular country.
Once you've found a Laotian woman that you're interested in, then bear in mind that it's not quite so easy to travel to Laos compared to other Asian countries. Outside of major cities like Vientiane, the transport infrastructure is less well developed. Bear this in mind before you fall in love with a Laotian woman who lives hundreds of miles from a decent road!
