    Hi sameh.. I just visited bangkok early this year, and vaccination is not required. However you need to be aware of the weather, as it humid and hot. If you came from non tropical country your body may adjust more to the weather. But in general it a nice place to visit over 6 years ago

    You need to make sure you get your Hep A and Hep B vaccinations. Hep A you can get from eating unwashed fruits and veggies and it is very hard to avoid eating those no matter how much you think you will be able to- even a little bit of cucumber touching your pad thai can transfer it. I believe Hep B requires two injections spaced a few months apart so leave time. You should also be up to date on your tetanus (dTAP) booster shot. It´s never a bad idea to get a flu vaccine as well because getting the flu while traveling sucks! If you go up north to Chiang Mai, there is a vaccination recommended for Japanese B Encephalitis- it is very, very rare but if you have insurance get it because you can get permanent brain damage if you do catch it. Also, if you are under 26, a meningitis vaccination wouldn´t hurt as staying in such close quarters can put you at risk. I wouldn´t bother taking anti-malarial medication unless you are planning on doing trekking in the jungle and even then it´s not a very high risk.

    I lived in Thailand for 3 months and traveled around all of Southeast Asia for 6 months. The only thing I got was a few colds and a bout of food poisoning in Indonesia that needed to be treated with antibiotics. over 6 years ago
