I'm traveling to Thailand for 2 weeks on my way to Australia, and I need to know if I will need any malaria tablets. I will be traveling to Bangkok and down to Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, i will not be traveling into North Thailand, and I am only there for 2 weeks. Can anyone help me?

I've been in Thailand for about half a year and I havent nabbed Malaria yet, I think you have a low risk of getting it unless you are hanging out near cut open animals, swimming in polluted street puddles, etc etc

Hello Jono

No, no pills needed, for those regions.
