Suggest head south and cross the border at Hat Lek and make yout way to Sihanoukville in southern Cambodia. Then take a bus up to Phnom Penh. Then take a bus to Saigon, Vietnam. Fly back to Bangkok. Search websites for info on what interests you. You will need to have your VN visa prearranged.
be aware of 2 things:
days of entry allowed when you return into TH: 15 days by land, 30 days by air. This is if you do not have a prearranged visa.
Songkran-the water splashing new Yr festival around 14/4-though different dates for PTY. Same-same in Khmerland. Plays havock on any travel. Prob best to only start travel when its all done.
IF you follow stoneman-as such a good intro, then know that VN visa are eaisest and very quick done at Sihanouk in KH. For KH just pay at border-not the first price.
talesofasia.com has all info re travel TH->KH.
And there still are guidebooks-often more comforting for pensioners as they are used to books. www tends to be often very onesided and to omit basic info.
