ha ha, very good! we had the same when i was in Kenya, only it was the Gheko's who were our friends.
Cos we were in the middle of nowhere, when we had a light on in the room (and because there was no windows, just bars) the whole forest swarmed around the light.
Flippin gheko's should have been paying us for the food we were luring in!!
I found that Cambodia and Vietnam were both more of a culture shock than Thailand or Malaysia, but visiting one of those shows in Patpong region of Bangkok might be a bit of a culture shock (haven't seen one but heard it is pretty shocking what the ladies can do in those shows). If you want a real culture shock go to India. That makes you feel so odd. I haven't been but I've heard Pakistan is also a bit like that and China is also pretty bad when it comes to a culture shock.

yes India will give u a cultureshock if u are a firsttime traveller. Had a major one lasting 4 days in Delhi. now I love India. Pakistan is similar but less chaos because there are living not as many people. especially if u land in Islamabad or Lahore u wont find any problems. I think preferable over Paharganj in Delhi (when u want to avoid a cultureshock).
