June or July

We are looking to go to Nth Thailand THEN Laos mid year. We have to be home for 2 weeks at the start of July so we will be looking at a 3 week trip from either 10 June, or from 15 July.

I know predicting the weather is bad, but our preference time wise is for the June departure. What we don't want though is to find that it is all still dry when we arive. We want lush greeness around and water in the rivers. Will the wet season usually have started enough by the time we reach Laos (approx 18 Jun) for this? Also, does the hottness of May/June start to drop off a bit by then?

Thanks

It is hard to say; last year, for example, the wet season started early. I must say, however, that you appear to have misconceptions if you think everything will be green and lush. That really depends on where in Laos you are. What you can expect is humidity and frequent showers, including thunder showers, during the day and night.
