Nothing but sunshine expected in Laos for the next six months. Travel early in the month to avoid the bigger crowds.


November Overview

Dry season is now in full swing in Laos meaning the chance of rain is minimal for the next five months. Days are typically warm and sunny with blue skies throughout the country. Pleasant average temperatures hover around 23°C in Vientiane and Luang Prabang, and 26°C in Pakse and the 4000 Islands, with peak temperatures not expected until March.

If you intend to travel to the north of the country, dry days and comfortable temperatures (avg temp: 17°C) make November an ideal month for trekking in Luang Namtha, Muang La and Phongsali.
