Hi there,

For coast and Kandy definitely NOT needed, the climate there is not for these mozzies. Lowlying tropical inland is what they like; this is Cultural Triangle and southern plains as far as tourists are concerned.

The areas you visit DO have Dengue risk so use Deet liberally, but no M-tabs.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
