Malaria pills are not necessary, but wearing mosquito repellent day and night is especially for the Dengue Fever mosquitoes, Dengue is prevalent through SEA.
Vaccinations best to see your own GP. I don't think you need malaria tablet but good repellent sprays. Make sure you spray at all time not only at night.
Some of the vaccines need to be done a few weeks before you travel. My family are up to dated with Typhoids, HepA, HepB and Tetanus. This is not advice but it is our choice to have it done.
I agree with Sweet Pea, see your GP. We as well are protected for typhoid, Hep A & B and tetanus on our Doctors advice.
We've been to Khao Lak 4 times and have never had a problem with mozzies (I have probably now jinxed myself for October). We do always pack a bottle of "Off" just in case.
Thanks everyone for your reply it really helps!
I would never take malaria pills for a short vacation here in Thailand. Just use good sprays against mosquitoes, that should be enough. But see your doctor, or consult websites in your own country, where you can find which vaccines are recommended for Thailand.
