2008 October 8 Enter Thailand leave Japan
I flew from Fukuoka, Japan to Taipei, Taiwan, then transited planes and flew on to Bangkok. I left the Hostel in Japan at 7:30 am and arrived at my room in Bangkok at 6:00 pm.

It is difficult to understand the sense of freedom I feel after being in the three expensive countries of Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

Example:

It cost me 1100 Yen for a ten-minute Taxi drive from the Hostels to the airport in Japan.

It cost me 430 Baht that included the toll road fees for a one-hour trip to Thammasat University, in the same quality of taxi.

1,100.00 JPY = 10.9826 USD
430.00 THB = 12.5130 USD

If I had done the same trip in Japan, it would have cost me 60 US Dollars. Of course, I would not have done it this way; it would have been a series of trains, buses, and subways, making for a horrible first or last impression of a country.

I have been thinking, I am good at math, I speculate the majority of travelers never quite figure out how much a country cost. They just purchase saying to themselves,
“I have to buy this.”
