Laos: Weather & when to go: October

October overview

October can be a great time to visit Laos as temperatures and climatic conditions become more favorable, especially as rainfall declines in frequency and intensity. Most days will be sunny and average temperatures will fall between 25 and 26°C in popular tourist destinations like Vientiane and Luang Prabang. However, in the cooler northern regions, it is advisable that warmer clothing is packed for the evenings as temperatures can drop noticeably on occasion. The festival of Bouk Ok Pansa normally occurs during this time in early October. An added bonus is that visitor numbers remain relatively low during this month, meaning it can be easier to travel and there will be fewer crowds at the more famous attractions.
