Southern Laos


The Mekong Valley is hot most of the year but becomes hellishly so between March and May. Some relief comes from relatively soothing river breezes, but not much. The Bolaven Plateau, on the other hand, is relatively cool all year, and from November to February it’s cold after dark. The plateau also has its own mini weather system, which brings rain right into December.
