Inquiry Submission By Arthur F

We will be in Vietnam and Cambodia for 3 weeks in January in Ho Chi Minh and Siem Reap for a number of days at either end. We will be traveling on a Avalon Cruise river boat along the Mekong in between including a couple of days in Phnom Penh. Based upon the Malaria maps the risk of Malaria is quite low in the cities but am wondering if folks traveling the Mekong have taken the malaria pills. MD office said is good idea but would prefer not to take the added drugs and side effects if folks who have made the trip suggest that insect repellent and appropriate clothing will keep you ?covered?.
