      Depends on the neighborhood, really, but most people don’t speak English beyond the few words they need to sell you their food/wares. People are super friendly, though, so it’s easy to get by with politeness, smiles, and hand gestures. Our hotel is pretty awesome – it’s called Shanghai Mansion, in Bangkok’s Chinatown. Very nice, and done up like an upscale opium den (or maybe just a nice vintage Chinese theme). We’ll be staying in more modest places once we hit the road and go south in a couple of days!
