That is incredible. I wish I would have saw something like that when I was in Thailand.

beautiful looking spider. Could be a Heteropoda of some sort but not sure of the true spider species in Thailand

What options did you get on Facebook?

Some people said it is a brazilian wandering spider, other suggestions were less likely.. I am not very knowledgeable on arachnid in this area!

Less likely than a Brazilian Wandering spider in Thailand? Hmmmm. Didn't think they wandered that much.

Beautiful little trucker.
Probable Sparassid. Senkenberg has about a half dozen 'yet to be fully described' from SE Asia. The guess on describing mine is around 2020.
BTW. Until the introduction of Latrodectus and Loxosceles here, very recent, there has never been a death from a spider bite in Thailand. So you can rule out our indigenous critters as hazards.
