Worth visiting to see three countries at once!
It will be interesting to be able to see the borders between the Thailand, Laos and Myanmar. You can take a short boat trip from Thailand to Laos and back. You need to leave your passport in Thailand, which is a bit unnerving, but the tour group I was with had no problems whatsoever. You get around 30 minutes in Laos, where there are people selling food and market items. It's good to do this just so you can say you've been to Laos.
