Insider Tip – The Gains of Green Season Travel in Laos

June 4, 2015 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , ,

Chris Gramsch, Country Manager at Khiri Travel Laos, emphasizes the benefits of traveling in Southeast Asia during the rainy (monsoon) season. Aside from the cooler climate, the biggest advantages mean fewer crowds and hotel discount rates.


Unfortunately, quite often travelers avoid Laos during the rainy season. The misconception exsists to expect terrible weather, rain for 24 hours a day and roads that have been flushed away. While it is true that road conditions can be an obstacle, mostly in the mountains of northern Laos though, the monsoon – or, how we like to call it – ‘green season’ actually brings some great advantages!

During these months of the year, the rain generally predictably falls during the early morning or in the late afternoon. In a hot climate, these rainshowers can be a welcome retreat and a spectacular sight on their own. The monsoon rains renew the green lush vegetation and bring clear, blue skies.

The dry land turns fertile with seasonal fruit, vegetables and blossoming flowers. Besides the green vegetation, the natural scenery is impressive too. The sterile streams swell into flowing rivers and flush away the dust. The waterfalls become impressive cascades of cool and refreshing water. The green season is an especially great time of year to enjoy a boat cruise on the Mekong and enjoy some of Laos’ scenic waterfalls.

Perhaps the best advantages during this time of year are the reduced number of other travelers and low season prices. Guests have places like Luang Prabang and the 4.000 Islands in southern Laos almost entirely for themselves. Hotels often cut their high season rates extensively so our travelers can upgrade their stay to indulge themselves in the pampering services of luxury accommodation.
