Landlocked and mountainous with the marvellous Mekong River flowing through it, Laos is mostly covered with untouched tropical forest and until recent years unknown to all but the most inquisitive traveller. Visit its capital Vientiane to see the iconic architecture of Pha That Luang, the national symbol, and then journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the ancient royal capital of Luang Prabang which is filled with monasteries and saffron-robed monks.
- Enjoy the temples and pagodas of Vientiane
- Explore the world heritage site of Luang Prabang
- Visit the mysterious Plain of Jars
- Cruise along the Mekong
- Visit the 4,000 islands in Southern Laos
Having a tropical climate, Laos really has only two distinct seasons, wet and dry.
Wet Season: Between June and October temperatures are in the low 20’s, with August being the wettest month.
Dry Season: From November to May, temperatures average in the high 20’s, however, the months of March to May can be classified as the hottest months.
Best time to go
The best time to visit Laos is between November and March as temperatures are lower, however it may get quite cool in the very north during this time.
