Discover Vietnam Trip Malaria Tablet Requirements

Welcome Guest, to make a post on the forum you need to login or register.

Hi there,

If anyone has done the Discover Vietnam trip before or similar Vietnam trips, i'd like to know what they took in terms of Malaria Tablets.

The trip notes recommend taking malaria medication, whereas my doctor doesn't think that the trip goes through areas of high risk.

I'm thinking of taking malarone medication for the trip, just to be on the safe side.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nick

Hi
Im not doing this trip so I dont know which regions it takes in but I went to vietnam this year and we took malarone which was fine. We travelled all over and as far as I know the only really affected areas for malaria are inland, particularly the northern regions. However we got bitten to shreds in the mekong delta and particularly a day trip to the cu chi tunnels so im glad we took it for peace of mind really.
Hope that helps

Laura,

Yes it does help. Many thanks for your reply. I think i'll take malarone, particularly as we are going to the Mekong Delta.

Thanks,
