Like many places in Southeast Asia, travelling with children in Laos can be a lot of fun and, if you are prepared for the initial long flight with youngsters in tow, a family holiday to Laos will be a truly unique and memorable experience.

The Laotians simply adore children and in many instances your offspring will be showered with attention, both by adults and their own Lao peers, who will be keen to meet a new playmate.

There is plenty to see and do throughout the country to keep the family amused, including boat trips, bicycle rides and kayaking.

The best time to travel is during the relatively cool and dry winter months of November to March, making it a perfect option for a Christmas or half term break. During our summer holidays Laos enters into its rainy season, although this is not as bad as you might initially think, and indeed August is actually one of the peak tourist times! The downpours during this season are often short and sharp, and are generally punctuated by long periods of sunshine and clear blue skies.
