How about Skype voice chat? Very clear voice (based on the net connectivity) and zero cost. The only -ive aspect would be that both the persons should be online and have a skype id. Other option would be PC to Phone calling.

As long as you are connected through broadband, you could call a landline or a mobile anywhere in the world through Skype. It is easy to use and considerably inexpensive.

Given below is the link for the calling rates

International long distance calls at cheap rates

You would notice that the rate to Bangkok (landline) is $ 0.071
and mobile is $ 0.132

Clarity is excellent. Have had tough times when I call from my mobile to another mobile abroad, but withe Skype I must say that the clarity is good.
