Hi everyone. Chitwan picture looks great - looking forward to taking some good (?) photos in Vietnam. Is anyone planning to take any anti-malarial tablets for the trip? The FCO website says that they are not needed for the cities and east coast of Vietnam, which is most of the trip - apart from the trekking days. Am not sure if it is worth bothering just for a short time, but would welcome anyone else's views.
I picked up my prescription today - Malarone. The nurse at my GP practice tells me all of Vietnam is a high risk malarial area. Also, the trip notes recommend anti-malarial too.
Also, one can get bitten during the day by mosquitos carrying dengue fever - so a good bug repellant is a must too. I've used the Boots jungle formula on previous trips, which contains a good percentage of deet. Hope this helps Lizzie.
