When Is The Best Time Of Year To Visit Laos

Frankly speaking, you can visit Laos anytime of the year. Lets begin by talking about the weather because it's a significant factor for most people in planning a holiday to Laos.

Laos enjoys a tropical climate with two distinct seasons, famous for being hot and sunny from November to April, and the rainy season starts from May through October. Yes it rains, sometimes pouring and sometimes light, but it doesn't rain every day that is going to keep you inside all day, the weather during the rainy season is still warm enough to be out and about, and you can wear shorts and a t-shirt.

The weather during the rainy season is unpredictable, there are long bouts of sunshine during the rainy season, and then heavy downpours. Travelling on the road can be a hassle given the roads can be damp and greasy so you need to be flexible with your travel plans.

The hot season can get scorching hot, with temperatures over 35 degrees Celsius (95 degrees Fahrenheit). Air conditioners and fans work overtime during this time of year in Laos and sometimes it's too hot to be outside for extended periods, especially for elders who come from a cooler climate and are not used to the heat.

But it's during the hot season when most of the fun and festivals begins, which is the reason why visitor numbers peak in Laos. The Boat Racing Festival, That Luang Festival, Wat Phu Festival and the Lao New Year Festival are some of the main events that take place in the hot season.

Overall, Laos is a beautiful country to visit with friends, family, or alone all year round. The party atmosphere always continues here, hospitality is first class and Lao people are the nicest people you will ever meet. Laos is rich in culture, heritage, Buddhism and we have many beautiful girls. Of course, we had to mention that.
