Yes, it does happen, it does exist. I, and others, here in Bali do it all the time. What I am trying to say that cultural factors are different here, and impinge on market choices. The cultural factors i described earlier are not unrelated, for example, to the adoption of broad-based public transportation systems. Singapore (pop 6 million) is an outlier here. I am trying to give you a more nuanced understanding of the market, based on actual experience.

Btw, I've been n SEAsia 15 years, have lived/worked in three countries, and been to them all except for Brunei.
