Doc, what about Umpang?

Hi Doc

You recommended on one of the forums that the best rafting is in Umpang. Umpang is close to the Burmese border. Is this safe without malaria tablets?

Thank you

You would have better chances winning the jackpot at the lottery than catching Malaria there. But the risk 0 doesn't exist, with or without tablets. A good mosquito repellent, proper clothing (don't wear blue) are your best protection against any kind of mosquito.

For info, Malaria mosquitoes strike at night, Dengue mosquitoes during the day.
