Is a MacBook 12 inch dual monitors setup possible?

I would like to use dual/two monitors with my macbook 12" (2016).

Is the device feasible of connecting, for example, to two LG UltraFine 4K Display monitors? What kind of cables/connectors do I need?

USB C to HDMI will work but USB C to USB A then using a USB A dongle to output to VGA will bottle neck your connection. I would just get two USB C (thunderbolt 3) to HDMI dongles. There are options for a single USB C thunderbolt 3 to dual HDMI outputs but these are expensive.
