How to do and what to expect if travel to Laos in August

Travel to mountainous and remote regions is difficult at times since the road condition is not really good and somewhere may be inaccessible.
Vientiane, Luang Prabang and some other sights in central Laos still a good choice by time.
In the south, natural landscape is now fresher and region's waterfalls are almost at their best. Highlights such as the 4000 Islands, Bolaven Plateau and Champasak also remain very accessible and enjoyable.
