Laos in May


Laos in May : Travel budget & tourist seasons.


Budget your trip depending on your departure time.

Beyond the tourist season (low, medium or high season) of the destination country, prices of your flight, hotel or all-inclusive stays may also vary depending on the demand in your country (our rates are evaluated from western Europe).

Thus, from western Europe, a stay will often be more expensive for a start during the school holidays.

In May, here's what you can expect on average:

  • All-inclusive stays: 1605 € / week

  • Round-trip flight: 830 €

  • Tourist season: low

Depending on your exact destination, you can face more or less rain, the average amount of rain observed during May in Laos is 213 mm and you can have between 14 and 15 rainy days. If you want to avoid rain, your preferred destination could be Luang Prabang.

Laos: Climate & Weather


There is a dry season and a rainy season in Laos.

Between April and October, the monsoon brings heavy rains, particularly in the South, which sometimes makes transport by road impossible due to damaged roads; in April and May, the weather is hot with temperatures of around 30°C and 35°C. From July to September, the rains are less frequent but heat waves are normal.

From November to March is the dry season: These months have lower humidity and bearable temperatures, which however change with the altitude. Nights can be cold in the northern mountains! This is the best time to visit Laos.
