Private investigations in Isaan, northern Thailand

April 24, 2018 - Reading time: 2 minutes

We have completed many successful investigations in the northern region of Thailand (known as Isan, Isaan, or Esarn). We believe this is a very important part of our work, and here's why.

Many Thai people grow up in the north of the country, typically in rural farming communities but move to either Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket to find work and earn money. It is widely accepted that the majority of ladies working in beer bars, massage parlors, or elsewhere in the tourist industry have come from Isaan in the north of the country. Typically they will leave their children in the care of their grandparents while they work and send money back.

In this region of Thailand the Laos language is typically spoken. This dialect is not usually learned by foreigners living in the kingdom and many people find it hard to understand the subtle cues of this language. It is very important that we retain staff from all walks of life and positions in the Thai class system in order to complete investigations successfully... This could not be truer in Isaan. We treat all cases sensitively and with complete discretion.

Provinces in Isaan include: Bueng Kan, Nong Khai, Loei, Nong Bua Lamphu, Udon Thani, Sakon Nakhon, Nakhon Phanom, Mukdahan, Kalasin, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Maha Sarakham, Roi Et, Yasothon, Amnat Charoen, Ubon Ratchathani, Sisaket, Surin, Buriram and Nakhon Ratchasima. People living in these provinces tend to migrate to more popular areas such as Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket or Chiang Mai in order to seek work. We are able to work in all provinces of Thailand.

Many people's secrets lay in their hometowns, and in some cases the only way to get to the bottom of untruths is to go directly to their homes, in the small communities of Isaan. We have developed unique methods of social engineering which combined with regular investigative techniques; allows us to deliver an excellent service to our clients while providing value for money - anywhere in the kingdom. Another reason for us to visit Isaan is for asset tracing. People that have grown up in the provinces will tend to acquire assets there, with lower land prices in Isaan helping to make this viable.
