If the vast of Viets look S.Chinese. The vast of Thais will still look way more S.Chinese ok? Becase Thai has clearly evidences that they are from China, unlike Vietnamese that has no evidence at all. All we have is just only an assumption that made by you.
I've been to Vietnam, south to north, the general feel was that Vietnamese were largely not that different to S. Chinese, certainly as much as those students in that video.

There isn't much different about both of them in phenotype, that is why I wanted to know who is actually more related to Northeast Asian.

Vietnamese in Hanoi do look a bit more 'Chinese' (who themselves are a diverse group) than those in HCM, or Danang, but there are many many individuals in the south and central regions who look that way too. As I said, I noticed more taller people in Hanoi vs the south. Remember, the original Viet homeland is in the far north. Only later did they expand into central and southern Vietnam, which used to be the domain of other civilisations.

In my opinion, I think majority of Thai don't look so Chinese. To me majority of Thai look a lot more similar to Okinawan Japanese than S. Chinese based on face feature. So I would say Vietnamese look similar to S. Chinese while Thai look similar to Okinawan Japanese.

If you go to Bangkok most people will have at least some 'Han' Chinese ancestry, but elsewhere it depends on the region. In the South (apart from Phuket) you have people who look Malay - they are ethnic Malay, in Isaan, people like the lowland Lao, quite dark, in the north, the hill tribes like Karen and Hmong. The Dai are the cultural forebearers of the Thai people but many of them are mixed with later Chinese. I think original Dai in China don't look that different to Southern Chinese.

The original Tai/Dai maybe look similar to Southern Chinese, but I from what I have seen I would say majority of modern day Thai look very similar to Okinawan Japanese.
