Bit confused as to what visa i will need for Thailand.
Basically i am flying into Bankgkok in late October - probably staying 1 week in thailand then on to Cambodia and Vietnam. Back in to Thailand in early December and will need a visa for more than 30 days as leaving from Bangkok on 8th Jan 2011. Can i apply for a multi entry visa in advance?

Thai visas are valid for 3 months from the date of issue.
Single entry visa are much cheaper than mulitple entry. Single entry should be free, although Birmingham (UK) charge a 15 pound admin fee (not sure who else charges that). A double mulitple entry is normal price at 56.
You could get a single entry to enter Thailand (you need that OR an air ticket out of Thailand within 30 days), and then apply for another single entry in Cambodia or Vietnam. A bit of a hassle depending on how much time you have, but it would certainly be cheaper.
Thanks for your response Mike
How about this - if I get a 60-day single entry tourist visa before I go, can I then head out to Thailand in October, on arrival get a 30-day free visa, then use the 60-day tourist visa when I re-enter in early December? Or will Thai immigration automatically use my 60-day visa on arrival in October?
