When are you going? I will be traveling from beijing to Bangkok this summer, taking the route along the cost of china, Vietnam and Cambodia before I head up to bangkok.

I think your ? is a little too vague to answer without knowing your preferences, age, budget, etc.

Overland, from China to Malaysia, there are two routes: through Laos to Thailand, then Malaysia; and through Vietnam and Cambodia to Thailand, then Malaysia. Laos and Cambodia offer visas at the border, but for Vietnam, you have to get your visa in advance. On the other hand, there are direct trains from China (Beijing, other cities) to Hanoi. To get to Laos, you'll have to take a bus.
