Hi all, only 7 weeks now before my first visit to Thailand and I'm buzzing with excitement! Anyway, I went to the travel clinic at my GP surgery today and got the usual Hep A/Typhoid jab and Diphtheria/Polio/Tetanus booster but the nurse suggested I might want to consider a Rabies jab too as Khao Lak is in a fairly rural, foresty area and there's a possibility of contact with monkeys and the like, especially as I'm planning to do the Phang Nga tour with visit to the 'Monkey Temple'. What do all you Khao Lak experts think, is this really necessary? It seems a little OTT if I'm honest, I fully plan on being sensible and staying well clear of any stray animals and will only look at (and take photos of) any monkeys I see rather than trying to man-handle them! Plus, it's going to cost me £167 for the pleasure so I'd rather not do it unless necessary.
