Saving fuel?
I took to Thailand almost as soon as I entered Bangkok. They call it 'The Land of Smiles', and for good reason. After the relative unfriendliness of the Chinese, the Thai people's attitude came as a breath of fresh air. The fact that most people spoke at least a little English and Thailand had some kind of tourist infrastructure also helped!

I spent 6 days in Bangkok, looking around the Wats (temples) - including the very impressive 45m long reclining Buddha at Wat Pho - taking longtail boat tours of the khlongs (canal streets) and buying 'funny' t-shirts and getting drunk on Khao San Road (read 'The Beach').
