Ok this is going to sound wierd but after 4 trips to Thailand only using anti mossie patches I have been reading about dengue fever and and now really worried. Been to places like Bangkok, Phuket, koh phangan and phi phi and never used any repellent - always went in high season btw.
Now for this trip I was going to be spending some time on koh lipe but I've read some reports in the last few years to suggest a few pepper got dengue and seeing as its such a small island I figure maybe the risk of infection is higher?
Do you think koh lanta has maybe a lower risk? Have there been any reports of dengue on koh lanta last few years? Do the aedes mossie hang out inland usually or close to the beach?
I wish I had not read up on this now as I have a feeling I will end up confining myself to Patong and Bangkok and not venture out to see some islands.
