    I have taken the pills with me but didn't end up taking them on two trips to Siem reap including the temples in the jungle and didn't have a problem. However if you are concerned, better safe than sorry. over 5 years ago

    Don't need at Angkor and malaria strains near Thai border area are drug resistant. Doxycycline is an option is you want extra protection, but DEET is first, best line of defense over 5 years ago

    I have lived in Cambodia for three years and never heard of anyone who has caught malaria (or anyone who knows anyone who has caught it). We have had dozens of guests visiting us and we always advise them not to take malaria meds as there is no risk of catching the disease in most parts of the country (the one guest who did take them found the meds made him sick so stopped taking them).

    While doctors and websites may instil fear into visitors and insist they protect themselves, there is really no reason to take medication for malaria unless you are living in a remote part of the country (in the rainy season). over 5 years ago

    I have been in Asia a lot of times. If you are in the cities, need not worry. But it's safer to take precaution measure if you are going into the jungles. Angkor Wat is swarm with people, the risk is very low. over 5 years ago
