It depends if you need English language search engines or engines in the local Thai and Vietnamese languages.
Have a look at these:

Thailand Search Engines:
www.thaipro.com at [thaipro.com ]
www.thaiseek.com at [thaiseek.com ]
www.sanook.com at [sanook.com ]

Vietnam Search Engines:
Vietgate at [viet.net ]

It seems searching at VietGate (www.viet.net) is powered by VietHoo [viethoo.net] which also has an Add new URL [viethoo.net] page. I also found VinaSeek [vinaseek.com] and PanVietnam [search.netnam.vn] but I have no idea if these are really used in Vietnam. Don't forget there is also Vietnamese Google [google.com.vn].

Hi all, here are the results of the research for Thailand so far. I have no idea which sites have trafiic and which don't; i have added a site to all engines below so we will see what happens in my logs over the next month or so.

I was expecting a lot more UTF sites, but virtually all were win-874 with one tis-620 which i havent come across before.

Have listed info on each site in following order:
URL
Site language
Charset
Notes

Hope it is of some use (and at least if its here I can some back and find it when I lose it on my own hard drive!)

Hey Woz, wouldn't that fit nicely into your WebmasterWorld Asia SE guide? <nudge, nudge, hint hint>

Thanks for that info a2ztranslate. That's a killer list.

You nudge once more bill and I'll, um, do something unpleasant along the lines of Monty Python!

a2z, bill is talking about the first Asia-Pacific Overview [webmasterworld.com] I did a few years ago, which is now somewhat out of date. I have planned to do an update for some time, hence bill's occasional good-natured nudging, but I am afraid I also have other priorities at the moment so I am not sure when the Second Edition will appear.
