We are planning a trip staring from Vientiane going to Chiang Mai and around for about 1 week. We are a family with 2 kids (12 and 8). I would like to get some advice, tips, beautiful sceneries, villages worth seeing, interests for the kids, etc in north of Thailand. Thank you for your help.

Those are good recommendations. I would also recommend a trip up to Doi Suthep around sunset. I would stay away from anyone who advertises orchid or butterfly farms, as that's not very exciting, and is mostly a ploy to get people out to buy trinkets.
Your kids are very fortunate to have this experience, hope you all have a wonderful time!
