I'll be travelling in Cambodia (7 days) and Vietnam (13 days) In August going to Siem Reap, Angkor, Battambang, Tonle Sap lake, Phnom Penh in Cambodia and whilst in Vietnam HMC. Danang, Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang and Hanoi in Vietnam.
I know that some of the places i have mentioned in both countries have a low risk of malaria and that Dengue fever is more fatal and that using DEET spray is best way to prevent bites,my motto is better be safe than sorry.
Whilst reading different posts on the above subject, different people have different views on taking them and not taking them (malaria tablets), i have decided that i am going to take some anti malaria tablets, money isn't an issue in buying the most expensive, which i believe are Malarone and have the least side effects and least time taking them before and after my trip, however, i only want to buy enough tablets that i think i will need for my trip.....so am i right in thinking that i'll only need (roughly) about 9 days of tablets?
Any info or input is greatly appreciated.
