In Mists of Pandaria, both factions can choose the Pandaren race.

How can I tell if a Pandaren player is horde or alliance?

If you're suitably knowledgeable about armour rewards and looks, you will sometimes be able to tell by the style of armour they are wearing as well.

  • My previous answer was 100% correct. It just didn't include the easiest way (the beta finally finished downloading its update and I got in). – dlanod Aug 17 '12 at 23:49
  • ... if it was 100% correct whey did you need to edit it? – Blem Aug 17 '12 at 23:53

In PVP, the most intuitive way of knowing wether a Pandaren is part of your faction is by checking their nameplate. If theirs is colored Blue, they are part of your faction.

Additionally, in MoP the faction information will be included in the tooltip whenever you mouseover on any player.
