I'm thinking either Vientiane (Laos), or Penang (Malaysia), but of course either case would require a stay of at least 2-3 days, so I'd also need to consider the cost of that stay, plus any local areas of touristic interest.
I suppose that Laos would be cheapest (take bus / train from BKK to Udon /Nong Khai area, and then cross boder by bus as needed), but I have no experience with that particular embassy (or country!), so anyone who has used that embassy please advise as to your experience there. Have already been to Cambodia, so would prefer something new--assuming the service in Vientiane is similar to Phnom Phen Thai embassy (which was quite efficient, in my experience).
Thanks in advance!
