    Definitely update your tetanus shot. Hepatitis A & B are highly recommnded, but the series of shots takes a bit of time. Start ASAP. There are no vacccinations for malaria. Bring plenty of insect repellent that contains at least 20% DEET, and use it when you can. Sprays are available there as well. When you can't use sprays, cover up. Dengue is a problem over there as well. No vaccination (nor cure!) for that one either... over 7 years ago

    We didn't get any shots for our trip as nothing is required, only recommended. Some people we were traveling with had malaria tablets. Insect repellent is important. Preferably only drink bottled water. over 7 years ago

    I didn't take any shots when traveling SE Asia for 6 months. However, I got a nasty scratch on my shin when the bus (and i use the term loosely) sped over a speed hump while my legs were under the seat in front. After a week in the jungle on the Vietnamese border I went straight back to Phnom Penh (Raffles Surgery) and had to visit every day for 1 week while the American doctor cleaned out my infected wound.

    If you don't take shots - certainly travel with iodine, antiseptic powder and gauze bandages :) almost 7 years ago
