I would guess it's euphorbia milli, usually called crown of thorns. They sure do look nice, it's some newer hybrid but I hear they are as easy to grow as the old fashioned small red blooming ones that I grew up with (and never managed to kill)

Here's some Thai blog that has a little info and pictures:

I'm so pleased to help! I'll have to add it to the "need to grow list" :)
