I would recommend Vientiane & Luang Prabang if this is the 1st time you visit Laos. One day Sightseeing tour with stops at places like Wat Sisaket, Wat Prakeo, Pha That Luang,Patuxai Victory Monument… is a great chance for you to learn more about Laos history, culture. Luang Prabang is another attraction where you might want to stay longer. From this UNESCO world heritage city, you can take day tours to Pak Ou Caves and Kuang Si Waterfalls. Morning Alms Giving is something you should not miss while you are in Luang Prabang.
If you have visited Vientiane & Luang Prabang for the 1st time you travel to Laos, I would recommend Vang Vieng, Bolaven Plateau, Wat Phou, Khong Island this time. They are popular attractions in south of Laos.
Six to seven days is good amount of time for a short visit to this country with 2 cities: Vientiane & Luang Prabang. If you can stay longer to 11-12 days, you will have chance to see more attractions in Laos like Vang Vieng, the city of Pakse, Wat Phou, Khong Island & learn about the life and culture of ethnic people in Phonsavan, join a variety of activities like cruising in 4000-island area, kayaking around the river, visiting some local fishing villages and much more.
