You can go from Hanoi to Hue, Hue to Vietienne (Laos) or south Laos (Savanaknet), travel a bit of Laos, then enter back to Thailand via the same places (or see other border crossings in guidebook). Getting a bus from Hanoi/Hue to Vietienne/Savanaknet is easy - takes about 14-20 hours though...! Do bear in mind that the northern borders between Vietnam and Laos are shut at the moment as not considered safe and this is why the buses take so long.

if you have time, from ha noi go down to hue, then nha trang(the sailing club, great party/chill scene and lots of skinny dipping), saigon is interesting considering how fast it's growing. from there hook over to cambodia to see phom pehn then siem reap. by the way, the bus from vietnam into cambodia was a nasty ride. from there you know what's up. good luck
