Thanks kunzah, I think you're right. Any ideas on what it might be?

Hmm, I don't think this is a brown marmorated stink bug (halyomorpha halys), although the range does match (it's found in Thailand). The marmorated stink bug's legs aren't quite banded the way this one's are. I'm not sure if that has to do with the fact that your spotting might be an immature stink bug, though.
