well I'm going to Thailand, Cambodia and laos this summer an for those countries the hepatitis jabs are definitely recommended. I've got both A and B. You can get a combo jab you have to have three times over a month's period for the fast one or over three months I think it is for the slow one. They will last you about 25 years, so i think it's worth doing!
Hope you will have an excellent trip.

You should get Hep A+B and Typhoid according to the advice I was given by my travel clinic for a similar trip.
