We knew about Chinese system (we used to work in China few years at the end of the last century). Thai system is also odd, they group them by 6 digits. In fact, this, same as in Indian dialects, comes from Sanskrit. In fact, they also "shorten" it in speech, ignoring the "small quantities", for example, you may see 1 506078, but they will say "laan haa", which is textual "million five" (i.e. one million, five hundred something) unless the accuracy is especially required (like accounting, banking, invoices, etc).
