This is a bit of a last minute trip and I am wondering if there are any medications or health precautions that we should take.
I have read conflicting opinions about malaria online and as we will be spending two days and one night in Sa Pa I'm curious if malaria tablets are necessary?
We are aware of Dengue and are packing bug repellent (40% DEET) and long clothes for the trek.
Also, we are really looking forward to trying the street food in Hanoi but would hate to end up with food poisoning on such a short trip.
Any advice on how to prevent this and over the counter medications to pack?
