I'm starting my year out next April and was trying to get an idea of how is best to travel from Bangkok to Laos and Ko Pan Ngan.
I'm giving myself about 4weeks to do this part of my trip. Is this long enough or too long? Would be flying into and out of Bangkok airport so including how to get back to Bangkok quickly and cheaply would be helpful. Also if people think 4weeks may be too long going into Vietnam would be an option, would this be feasible on a £25-£30 a day budget?
Any help on this would be appreciated greatly

i'm pretty much doing the same thing at the end of the year.
flying into bangkok, then flying into chiang rai. bus from chiang rai onto chiang khong, then cross the border into laos. from here, travel from north laos all the way down to south, then head on over back to bangkok then onto koh phangan via buses, trains and ferries.
check my thread for more information:
