Luang Prabang Laos – Lao PDR – Tourism, Travel Tips, Reviews – Luang Prabang

Weather in Luang Prabang is cold starting from January, but you will miss it in March

In January, nights cool down and wearing socks and a jacket can be advisable. One can not imagine it during the days, but the temperature drops significantly at night. However, you will miss the feeling of almost freezing when we March gets started. The March weather in Luang Prabang can be accused of torture and heat will take a good three hour out of your productive day. In April the city is boiling and the water throwing activities of Pi Mai will makes complete sense. Both because you need to be cooled down and because they prepare you for what is to come – the rainy season. It all starts over again!

Luang Prabang weather IS a big deal.

It will be noticed. You will plan your life around it.
Starting from May, also known as the beginning of the the rainy season, downpours soaks Luang Prabang for a couple of hours each day. However the beginning of the rainy season does not mean it rains all the time. Usually it rains about a normal Hollywood movie long and then it’s beautifully lush out (and extremely muddy). Nevertheless, the weather calls for a good rain jacket and a bit of planning when traveling to explore new places. Ask locals for advice on what hours to go. Also, be extra careful with your possessions, we have noticed an increase of theft and robbery when the rain and thunderstorms drown the sound of illegal activities. Beaware!
