Devout Buddhists, dutiful monks and travelers seeking comfort in traditional Southeast Asian beliefs book flights to Laos on spiritual, religious and influential journeys. It’s not hard to see why – more than 60 percent of Laos’s population are practicing Buddhists and it’s obvious in every facet of Lao life. In fact, the flight to Laos might be the last bit of modern civilization you’ll experience during your Laos trip.
When your flight to Laos arrives, you’ll be inundated with the vast array of temples and shrines that line the landscape. You’ll spot monks walking to prayer and Buddhist’s paying homage to ancient Asian culture. Music, sculpture and cuisine are a way of life in Laos and taken very seriously by the Thai, Vietnamese and Khmer tribes that inhabit this country. The representation of Buddha is the most traditional and religious display of culture and belief, but the people of Laos also remain some of the finest artists in the world. A cheap flight to Laos will immerse travelers in rich Buddhist culture and Asian traditions.

Laos’ climate is tropical. It’s extremely humid during the rainy season, which lasts from July through October.
Laos’s climate can be split into three seasons: cool, hot and rainy.
The cool season (between November and February) when the rains have stopped and hot season (March to May) are both good times to plan flights to Laos. The Lao New Year (April) falls in the peak season and it may be difficult to find cheap flights to Laos or discount accommodations during this time.
The rainy season extends from June to October.
Lao Aviation flies domestically. Apart from flying there are several ways to get around the country including by ferry, bus (there is a good network throughout Laos) rental car, Songthaew (pick-up trucks with benches) and, of course, tuk tuk (modified motorbikes).
