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: /
