Phonsavan or Pakse?

I have the choice of spending either 2 days (and 2 nights) in either Pakse or Phonsavan in late february. I'm leaning towards Phonsavan and the plain of jars at the moment as they sound fascinating but also i would like to see Wat Phu Champasak. Unfortunately it is one or the other though and i am limited to the 2 days only - can anyone help me make my mind up?

I'd do Phonsavan. Wat Phu is nice, but pales in comparison to anything at Angkor Wat, if you've seen that. There is no place that has jars except in Phonsavan.

Well, very different and both have their attractions. Up to you.
