yes - if you are travelling to rural areas where this desease is endemic or if there is outbrake of it.

this virus is spread by mosquito bites - so use repellent and wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers in the evenings

I'm doing most of the places that your covering and my practice nurse and a specialist travel doctor advised me to have it. Apparently it's quite bad around the borders especially in Cambodia, so I would personally advise you to consider it.
