Araneidae, Argiope sp., not 100% sure which one. I found a similar one called Argiope mangal, from Australia and Singapore. Some similarities, but I am a little sceptic about all the IDs of Mangal and also about the geographical range for Mangel being found in Cambodia. No reports from Thailand, though.
