You have a number of options, with the 3 months you could take a month long visa for each if Vietnam, Lao and Cambodia, this would give plenty of time to see each country. If your ending point is a return to Bangkok I would suggest a circular route. Take a bus from Bangkok into cambodia. In cambodia take siem reap to see the the fantastic ankor wat and if you fancy beach time try out sineoukville. In phenom phen you can visit the killing fields and the infamous s21 prison. To get onto vietnam one option is taking a boat on a few days trip on the Mekong all the way to HoChiMinc city. From HCMC you can take trips to the Mekong delta and the chu chi tunnels. The main touristy spots in Vietnam are along the coast so you could travel north taking in Dalat(nice mountain town), na trang(beach resort) hoi an(relaxing town famous for cheap tailor made suits) hue (famous citedal) and then onto Hanoi. This can all be done by bus. From Hanoi do a trip to halong bay and then head for sapa( trekking town not too far from China).there area few border crossings into Lao you can then take. In Lao luang prabang is a really nice town to chill out in and then you have vang vien ( famous for drunk river tubing down the Mekong).
