My understanding is that HK has fairly good NFC acceptance (though possibly not 100%). I'm not sure about Thailand.

I haven't been to HKT in 15 years or so, but back then I recall it was mostly cash only.

I was in HKT a couple of years ago and even card acceptance was choppy TBH, Im not sure if much has changed but I don't think GPay will have significant presence yet.
