Based on this information it shows that among the southeast Asian nations Thailand has the highest literacy ratio(which is equally to China). It makes me wonder why other Southeast Asian aren't able to achive the same level?

Singapore has the highest literacy rate and after Thailand which is 2nd comes Philippines with a very small difference then Malaysia,Vietnam and Indonesia, the rest are below 93%. From the OPs post, why not on the same level? Well it's a close call and catching up each others literacy rate is not that hard.

Did not look at the literacy ratio though just the literacy rate.

He's right... It has been about 86% for a decade.
