Best Times to Visit Laos

Laos’s climate is pretty simple, because it is the only landlocked country in Indochina. Without coasts nearby, Laos' climate is slightly more predictable than those of surrounding Southeast Asian countries. Laos' is home to two distinct monsoon seasons: the wet season from May to October, and the somewhat drier season from November to April. The volume of rain also varies by region, however, the rainfall rarely last more than a few hours and the country turns verdant and lush during the rainy season. The seasons bring its own benefits. Altitude affects temperatures in Laos, with elevated areas enjoying cooler weather. Laos is home to higher regions in the north, center, and east. Lowlands are concentrated in the south. Check out this Laos month-by-month guide below to learn more about the general weather conditions:

Laos Travel Month-by-Month Guide

Throughout the year, Laos as a whole experiences different seasons and types of weather. Typically, festivals and holiday celebrations come and go as the seasons change, therefore it is best to plan ahead so you can get the most out of your Laos vacation. Please refer to our weather guide below:
Visiting Laos in January
If you are travelling Laos in January it is unlikely that you will encounter any significant rain, if any. In the capital, Vientiane, or Luang Prabang average temperatures should be in the mid 20°C, a few degrees below those in the regions to the south. One of the significant factors to remember in January is that if you intend to head to the north and east for hiking and trekking, or plan a Mekong cruise via Pakbeng, night time temperatures will average 15°C and much lower in Phongsali.
