I also personally know a lot of Thai and I have been in Thailand and visited most of the area too. In my point of view, majority there that you will see walking around streets look nothing similar to Cambodian, most of them could easily pass for Okinawan Japanese,S.Chinese,Taiwanese (except in a few areas that majority there are made up by Cambodian itself, those may look like Cambodian).

In my opinion.

Skin tone = Thai are generally lighter than Vietnamese.

Face = I would say that Vietnamese and Thai are generally have different concept of face.
Vietnamese, to me they have S.Chinese face (wide face,wide nose,clear jaw bone,long eye shape).
Thai, to me they have Okinawan Japanese face (longer face,pointy longer nose,less obvious jaw bone,almond eye shape).

Obviously, nose and face shape are the most obvious different between face-feature of Vietnamese and Thai. Vietnamese and Thai have their own common face-feature.

okinawan is usually referred to as jomon or proto-mongoloid types
that would mean thai are less E Asian looking then viets...as southern chinese are actual mongoloids...okinawans are more like the original people of japan who werent mongoloid but a much older people with psuedo-causcoid features
look at typical okinawan woman

She doesn't look like typical S.Chinese that you will see walking around streets in S.China, she looks like a N.Chinese (and Vietnamese look nothing like N.Chinese).
Even among Singaporean (which made up by Southern Chinese), majority of us still don't look like that woman.

Btw, based on what you said. You are telling that Japanese are less Asian than Chinese right?
I would say this is more like a personal idea of look, which is depend on personal point of view.

From what we see, he often pick up something that doesn't realistic. What he pick up to compare often biased based on his personal issue. So I guess don't take serious about his comparison.
