    If you plan to sleep outside and are in extremely rural areas. Most traveled areas are safe and I chose not to take them, because the side effects seemed extremely harsh for such a low risk for the traveling I had planned :)

    Technically yes, but it greatly depends on where and when you go (cities and dry season/winter being lowest risk). Your travel medicine doctor and the CDC website and similar websites will have the best advice. over 5 years ago

    The WHO has maps of malaria prone areas in the world. I traveled two months through Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam and saw very few skeeters. Mid- January through to end of March. If you do take meds along keep them in the original containers with all the info on the label or they could get confiscated or get you arrested for the day until you're can explain your affliction over 5 years ago
