Holiday in Laos
One of Asia’s most beautiful secrets is the gentle and enigmatic Laos – home to a diverse range of ethnic minorities and unique cuisine. A land of wats and orange robed monks, Buddhism is an integral part of the culture, Laos is tranquil and a land of slow pace and laid-back locals. Renowned for its wealth in history and natural wonders, stunning ancient temples, historic remains, spectacular landscapes and sparkling temples. You will find Laos’ past more alive than the present.
Best time to travel to Laos
The small, landlocked country of Laos is best visited between October and April, when the weather is warm and dry throughout. River travel is best between November and January, when high water levels make passage easy along Laos’ main waterway, the Mekong River. Laos’ geography plays a major part in shaping its climate, and cool temperatures can still be found in the highlands, which lie mainly in northern, eastern and central regions. The ‘green season’ falls between late May and October, when the rains return to the country. But showers are usually short and sharp, having little impact on your journey. At this time of year, the country comes to life, with waterfalls beginning to flow and the lush scenery attracting a variety of wildlife.
