Need a place to visit near Vientiane in one week

The next month I'm going to take a trip to Vientiane for work. I want to go sightseeing in some places near Vientiane (maybe one week). You have any suggestion for places to visit and transportation? Thank in advance.

    Vang Vieng is just 150 km from Vientiane to the north. This place is quite peaceful and fresh. You can get a chance to take part in various activities and games on the river. In addition, you can be taken by a balloon to watch the scenery from the above.

    For 1 week, you can visit 2 places from Vientiane on the same route on land. Vang Viengand then Louangphabang.

    At Vang Vieng, it is a touristy town for tubing along the river. Luang Prabang is the cultural town with French colonial influence.

    You can choose between air-condition bus or Vip bus for traveling to Luang Prabangor book via Laos Explore to take a trip from Vientiane to Luang Prabang. Further, elephant trek is considered as the "must-try" thing when visiting the wonderful place. Also, you can visit beautiful and historical temples in there such as Wat Xiengthong and Wat Mai

    If you want to visit destinations outside of Vientiane Prefecture Luang Prabang is good choice for you. You can transfer to Luang Prabang by daily bus with price from 110.000-130.000 kip/way.
