Hello,
I'm just doing a little planning and was wondering if 15 days in laos would be enough to see Vientiane through to Luang Prabang?
Also does anyone have any other recommendations/places not to miss in Laos?

thanx B

15 days should be fine for this - I did it in 11. Luang Prabang is a lovely town and worth a few days. The drive between LP and Vang Vieng is stunning, and the tubing in Vang Vieng is great fun.

Brandi-
I loved Laos- If all you want to see in Vientiane, VV, and Luang Prabang 15 days is more than enough. There are a bunch of other great places you could see in Laos if you have the time and it fits into your other plans. I found Laos to be one of my favorite countries I have visited- I will message you with a few other suggestions.

I don't normally travel to party but I admit I loved the tubing & partying in Vang Vieng. The Gibbon Experience out of Huay Xai was also a very enjoyable experience, though expensive. The fast boat ride from Huay Xai to Luang Prabang was outstanding both scenically & fun. Another highlight was going to a small village o/s Luang Prabng to ride an elephant in the river & thru the countryside - the highlight was actually the 3 hours in the village mixing with the locals.
