where is the next stop after bangkok?

Not sure yet, Koh Lipe is one of the few islands I have not seen yet? Or maybe Myanmar? Sometimes I end up meeting other backpackers and end up traveling with them! So no plans really.

Myanmar is high on my list, its expensive though compared to Vietnam etc. You look at all the islands cascading down the Myanmar south coast and its just going to be a goldmine when the govt there arr no longer being cunts.. I want to do the boat from Chang rai down to luang prabang, I'm sire you have already done that. Also boat it from mekong delta into Cambodia that way. I could easily do 6months in India.. Sapa was one of my fav places in Vietnam..

My flatmate did Myanmar last year, 2nd visit, his grandmother was born there, his mother grew up in rangoon, non asians, lived a flash life there, anyway he said the food is a bit of a let down, bagan is brilliant, just ride bikes everywhere and temples galore, he liked rangoon too, mandalay not so much..

The sort of travel you do is the way to go, much more exciting and spontaneous..

Every backpacker I met that has been to Myanmar spoke highly of it.

You have to take a bus from Chiang Rai to Chiang Khong, then cross the Mekong to Huay Xai in Laos where you can catch a boat to Luang Prabang. It takes 2 days with an overnite stop over in a small village on the banks of the Mekong.

I am quite fond of Mui Ne in Vietnam myself!

mui ne is too windy, only place i have sat on the beach and had to get up cause the sand was hurting my face.. guess depends on the time of year.. beach i found uninspiring, we have pretty amazing beaches in australis so its hard to match.. best beach is an bang beach out of hoi an.. magic..

ko samui, chaweng beach was divine water too, perfect to me..
