December's weather in detail

December is characterised by dry, sunny weather, blue skies and relatively cool temperatures (avg temp: 19-22°C) throughout the country. It's no surprise that December is amongst the most popular months to travel to Laos, so a higher number of visitors should be expected at the main tourist sites.

Favourable weather conditions makes for enjoyable trekking in Muang La & Phongsali, and safe caving and rock-climbing in Vang Vieng. With minimal chance of rainfall and plenty of sunshine, the 4000 Islands are the place to head for R&R, although if it’s a beach you’re looking for then you may wish to consider southern Vietnam or Hua Hin in Thailand, both of which are easily reached from Laos.

If you’re looking for a Christmas getaway, Laos is an excellent choice. Early booking is essential.
