Vietnam's VN Index closed down 0.38 percent on Thursday as investors took short-term profit on blue chips, ending a two-day rise earlier this week.
Shares in Ho Chi Minh City-based confectionary maker Kinh Do Corp fell 4.6 percent to end at 52,000 dong ($2.5) each. The share had risen 11.7 percent in the past five days as investors anticipated moon-cake sales to rise in coming weeks.

Technology firm FPT   lost 2.4 percent to 45,200 dong ($2.15) per share after hitting an one-year high on Wednesday.
Shares in BaoViet Holdings, the country's biggest insurer, lost 1.2 percent and pharmaceutical firm DHG Pharma fell 1.7 percent.

Philippine stocks fell on Thursday, extending their losses for a second week, as investors trimmed positions ahead of a market holiday, while Vietnam's benchmark index retreated amid profit-taking in a broadly thin  session.  
The Philippine main index finished down 0.3 percent on the day, falling 2 percent on the week. SM Investments Corp was among the underperformers in part due to a share placement at a discount.  

The exchange will be closed on Friday.

Thai stocks outperformed, with the SET index rising 1.2 percent, adding on a modest 0.7 percent gain over the past
three sessions.

Trades have been subdued this week due to caution over anti-government rallies against the amnesty bill.  
Lawmakers in Thailand continued to debate a political amnesty bill for the second day on Thursday as anti-government protesters demanded it be scrapped because they say it would help exiled former premier Thaksin Shinawatra return home a free man.  
Large caps led the gainers due to strong quarterly results such as PTT Global Chemical, while a share-split plan
sent Siam Makro's  stock to a record high, up more than 20 percent on the day.

Sentiment in the region was broadly weak due to holidays in the major exchanges. Both Singapore   and Malaysia  are shut on Thursday and Friday, while Indonesia is closed for the week for Eid Al-Fitr holidays.
