Laos: Weather & when to go: December

December overview

December falls in the middle of the dry season and so rainfall is highly unlikely during this time and most days will be sunny and comfortably warm. The southern regions will encounter warm average temperatures, typically around 30°C but they can be around 20°C in the central and norther regions of the country. However, it’s worth noting that in higher altitudes, evening temperatures can be much cooler during December (around 17°C) and therefore packing appropriate clothing is recommended. December can be a fantastic month to engage in outdoor activities due to the reliable weather conditions it receives.
