Weather in December

Posted by messej01 on 4/7/2006 at 17:20

We are planning on travelling through Laos from the end of December through January and just saw that average temperatures are only 10 - 20 degrees. I know this is peak time over there but I was hoping to do the tubing and white water rafting but 20 degrees is pretty cold (by Aussie standards). Did I get the temps wrong?

Hi Julie,

Welcome to Travelfish!

Yes, I think you got the prices wrong (you didn't get the info from here did you?) -- it will be cooler that time of year, but certainly not under 20-25 degrees.

No, I got it from a guidebook. 25 degrees sounds much better. Thanks for the reply - Julie
