Malaysia–Thailand relations (Malay Hubungan Malaysia-Thailand; Thai ความสัมพันธ์ประเทศมาเลเซีย-ประเทศไทย; ) refers to bilateral foreign relations between the two countries, Malaysia and the Thailand. Thailand has an embassy in Kuala Lumpur, and Malaysia has an embassy in Bangkok.

Recently, Thai-Malay relations have soured considerably due to the ethnically-Malay Pattani separatists in three southern provinces of Thailand. There have been claims by the Thai government that Malaysia has taken an interest in the cause of their opponents in the war, which is vehemently refuted by the latter.
