Travel to Laos
Laos is a Southeast Asian country traversed by the Mekong River and known for mountainous terrain, French colonial architecture, hill tribe settlements and Buddhist monasteries. Vientiane, the world’s smallest capital, is the site of UNESCO-protected the That Luang monument, where a reliquary reportedly houses the Buddha’s breastbone, plus the Patuxai war memorial and Talat Sao (Morning Market), a complex jammed with food, clothes and craft stalls.
Dry season in Laos is October through April, while wet season runs May through September. Intermittent rainfall typically falls between March and through June usually early morning or at night, which also happens to be one of the hottest times of the year.
