High rainfall and temperatures in the mid-20’s°C are typical for July making travel to the more remote regions of the country difficult at times although road conditions have generally been greatly improved in recent years.
Conditions in Luang Prabang and Vientiane remain moderate with the rain usually lasting just a few hours and often at night or early morning (avg temp: 24°C). In the south the rain can last longer and be more constant although plenty of dry days are still expected.
