hi,

i went to my doctor last week and wanted to get malaria-tabs just in case something happens in china.

but they are over 50 euros and i thought i will probably not need them anyways.

is malaria a big problem in china ? i will go to hk, chong qing, tian jin, bei jin.

do i need them or not? or can i also get them in china if i got sick?

greetz,

thomas

I've lived in China for the past year and don't have malaria pills and I live in the humid Central SE. From your itinerary, you will be in major cities so I just suggest some bug spray and you're good to go.

you saved me 50 euros hahah

i already payed around 100 euros for the doctor things.. i did a travel-suggestion thing too, which cost me like 15 euros! and it didnt even really help me. well, now i dont need to do it again :)
