Laos Weather / Temperature

We would like to know about the temperature in huay xai, pak beng, Luang Prabang, vang vieng and vientaine during end of November and early December.

Do we need to bring a sweater ?

Is it rainy ?

Thank you for your information.

Hi,

Just to echo callao, certainly Huay Xai and Pak Beng are fairly cold in the morning and late at night, if you are on a boat you will need something when you leave Pak Beng on the boat for the first couple of hours.

Last year was unusually warm and muggy in LPB at the end of November and there was still a bit of rain around but the year before it was a more normal clear and sunny with cooler nights and mornings. As you go south it will be warmer, but buses can be chilly so a light jumper or fleece is a good idea.

Cheers

we must have been very lucky, we travelled mid Nov. to mid Dec. last year and it was shorts, sandals and t shirts day and night most of the time, even in Phonsavan which we were warned would be cold. We had one afternoon shower and one real downpour at night in LP. . However, even in the tropics we always bring one of those plastic macs that fold up to an envelope , plus a fleece for air con. vehicles and boats . Trousers that zip off to shorts are also very useful.

Hi,

Last year was unusually warm, it didn't start to cool until the second week in December in most of the north.

Cheers
