Hi there, I have the opportunity to spend 6 months in Cambodia for work. I currently live in Sydney with my husband and 2 children aged 2 and 5. If we finalise this project the whole family would come with me for 6 months. It is a very exciting opportunity but I am also worried about the lifestyle there for the kids especially healthcare. Education is fine - they will probably go to the French school for 6 months (I am French originally).
My questions are:
- do we need to take Malaria pills for 6 months? We will be living in PP but would like to take the opportunity to spend some weekends away.
- what is the best prevention for Dengue in PP on a daily basis?
- Is there a good hospital? We will have private insurance.
- what about water? Is drinking water expensive?
I am also worried about landmines in country side. It seems that unfortunately for the local people the risk is still very high. is it still possible to go for a hike in country side if we stay on the path or too dangerous?
