Chiang Mai. Bus or train is not that expensive.

Korat/ Phimai. Not that far from Bangkok using a cheap bus ride from Morchit.

I agree with karazyal, Chiang Mai would be my first suggestion, overnight express train is comfortable. Last year, as it was my third time, I took a day train just north of Bangkok and stayed a couple of days at Ayutthaya (good if you like to see many wats). Then I boarded the daily overnight train from there through to Chiang Mai.

My second suggestion would be Koh Samui (return flight from Bangkok) but as your staying at Hua Hin for 2 weeks I think the change of scenery in Chiang Mai would be the way to go.
