Khao morning mountain landscape, with afternoon scene almost, although too few people, but this is typical of foreign backpackers camp (see figure two). Sleepover Western drinkers drinking in the early morning twilight, hugged dark thin Thai girls, stumbling out of the bar, swaying in Khao roaring mountain singing.

It's called the discovery pass and you have to get it through a travel agent in the US before you leave.
It won't take you to Vietnam -but will take you all over Thailand and to Cambodia - either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh.
One suggestion - why not narrow it down to tw...more relaxed and have a chance to see more.
If you want a really chilled-out island, my suggestion is koh yao. You can get their by boat from either Krabi or Phuket.
If you do go to Phnom Penh, be sure and take the Khmer architectural tour - you can arrange for a private guide even if they don't have a tour on. This was one of the highlights of my trip to SE Asia: /
