Thanks in advance,


The climate is hot and humid. There is a wet season.

The climate does not affect me personally but for others it means time spent with air conditioning running in the car or at home. I prefer to use a/c sparingly as I find it is not good for one's health to go from an artificial climate into the heat and humidity.

I go walking but do this in the early morning before the day heats up. Cold showers during the day. Use fans.

There are swimming pools.We have a blow up pool which the kids, neighbor included (and my wife) love to fill and sit in.

Failing this one can always wander around the air conditioned shops or hang out in a bar drinking lovely cold beer Lao.
