The three countries have slightly different temperatures, but the influence of the monsoon unites them in the wettest rainy season, usually between May and October. Laos is located in landlocked Southeast Asia, bordering China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Burma. It still keeps its traditions alive, tourism has expanded its entry especially since the nineties.
Therefore, in Laos you will find an unspoiled lush nature that surrounds the wonders of Luang Prabang City and religious archaeological site of Vat Phu, important world heritage sites, without losing the temples of Vientiane and breathtaking views


In recent years, the Lao government has favored a very particular type of ecotourism, which promotes the territory with the utmost respect for its nature. We are talking about a tour of Laos through the "zip line", suspended ropes

that do not impact the environment and that will allow you to explore the territory suspended in the air, spending the night in the huts that are located along the way. On this page of the blog "Viaggiare Libera", which talks about responsible and sustainable tourism, you will find all the information and curiosities to undertake this unique and adventurous experience of a few days immersed in the unspoiled nature of Laos.


Laos in particular has two major seasons. A cool and dry one from November to April and a warmer but humid one between May and October

. If you have decided to make a trip to Laos, you should know that temperatures are never cold at any time of the year, in January it can reach 15 degrees C at night. Only in the high peaks of the mountains can reach zero degrees Celsius.

In the dry season between November and February, daytime temperatures hover around 25 degrees. In the dry season between November and February, daytime temperatures are around 25 degrees Celsius, even rising to 30 degrees around February. Between March and April the heat rises considerably, these are the hottest months with peaks of up to 40 degrees and during which afternoon thunderstorms may develop, but nothing as significant. From May onwards, temperatures begin to drop slightly, rains fall more frequently, turning into typhoons in the period from August to October. In these months, if the rains are incessant and abundant, many roads become impassable. From November, the monsoons have moved away from Laos and give way to cooler temperatures and much drier weather. The best time to travel to Laos

is definitely between November and February.
