I think it may be Aerides sps. Experts may can confirm

Images are too small for proper identification. It looks close to Ascocentrum ampullaceum or some hybrid of Ascocentrum.

By the way, now all Ascocentrums are included under Vanda.

It is Vanda ampullacea (Roxb.) L.M.Gardiner (syn.=Ascocentrum ampullaceum (Roxb.) Schltr.)
