stone's throw from the record high touched in November 2007.
Vietnam shares  .VNI  settled 0.4 percent higher, after gaining as much as 1.2 percent, marking their twelfth session of  gains in thirteen.

The index got a boost from financial and energy stocks, with Vincom Retail JSC  VRE.HM  ending 6 percent up and Petrovietnam Gas Joint Stock Corp  GAS.HM  adding 1 percent.
Foreign and domestic inflow into the market rose, with the macroeconomic environment being stable, said Bui Nguyen Khoa, senior analyst at BIDV Securities Company.

"The Vietnam Index may see new peaks in the first quarter of 2018."

The index snapped two straight sessions of gains and ended 0.2 percent lower.
Malaysia  .KLSE  ended down for a second straight session, dragged down by consumer cyclicals and telecom stocks.
Entertainment firm Astro Malaysia Holdings Bhd  ASTR.KL  closed 3.6 percent down while telecom company Maxis Bhd   fell 0.5 percent.

An index of the country's 45 most liquid stocks fell 0.2 percent.
Philippine stocks  .PSI  retreated from a record high hit in the previous session and ended flat. Conglomerate JG Summit Holdings Inc  JGS.PS , the worst performer on the index, closed 2.4 percent down.
