August’s weather in detail

There's no escaping the rain in Laos in August as this month marks one of the wettest months of the year.

In the more remote regions, such as Phongsali and Muang Sing the heavy rain can make travelling around fairly difficult and tracks may become unpassable, with risk of landslides in some areas. If it’s ‘off the trail’ it’s best avoided in August.

Despite the wet weather, southern highlights such as the 4000 Islands remain accessible by boat, with the regions waterfalls (unsurprisingly) at their best, although those looking for R&R in the sun should consider the beaches of central Vietnam.

Despite overcast skies, humidity levels can reach 85% in August and temperatures in Luang Prabang and Vientiane range from 25-30°C.
