Do I require transit visa at Bangkok airport

Hi everyone,
I am visiting Thailand and Hong Kong in Jun 2012 with family. I will use Cathay Pacific airlines. My itinerary is as under:

Karachi - Hong Kong (Cathay Pacific will have 1 stop over in Bangkok)
Hong Kong - Bangkok
Bangkok - Karachi

When I am returning from Hong Kong, I will be having a single entry tourist visa for entering Thailand. But when I am traveling from Karachi to Hong Kong, do I require transit visa as Cathay Pacific has stop over in Bangkok. My stay at Bangkok airport will be for 2-3 hrs maximum but I will get down from aircraft and enter airport.
Looking for assistance from fodorites

No. You won't be going thru immigration, just killing time 'airside' so relax.

What about Hong Kong? Does one require transit visa for Hong Kong airport, even if not going through immigration?

No, if you are not going through immigration, you do not need a visa.
