April in Luang Prabang, weather and all that

Jump to last reply

Wondering if anyone has been to Luang Prabang in April and if so... how brutal was the weather?

Obviously this is south east Asia so it's relative but a rough idea. I see the numbers on the internet but then, today was a 110 degrees Fahrenheit (43.3c) here and we get much worse. But ours is hot, dry desert winds sort of thing. No sweating, just spontaneous combustion. When we were in Galle last year, I thought some of us were gonna melt. Returned to change shirts every 30 minutes because it looked like I'd fallen off the sea walls. Fun still of course but whew, with the humidity, it was tough. I don't think we did as much as we'd have liked. Bali in early March was pretty gob smacking too.

Just curious if this is a particularly miserable sounding plan, I guess, LP in April... while it's still just an idea and not yet a cog in the wheel? Would it be nearly as bad as Galle and Seminyak?

fwiw, we're rethinking some time we may be freeing up during a northern Vietnam trip. The Ha Giang part is starting to sound like a LOT of windscreen time over five full days for an 8 year old as much as we love the idea of being there. Like at least 6 hours a day on winding roads. Beautiful views, but still... And we've got plenty of time at our other stops (Hanoi, Halong, Hue, Hoi An. So as I've always dreamt of visiting LP, which would be a lot harder to visit separately from home...
