Dengue Fever

Visited Koh Lanta for 10 days at the end of July early August, within days of leaving both my wife and I have contracted Dengue.

Just a heads up to others as perhaps we were a little naive that we would not catch it so didn't take to many precautions.

Mosquito net and body spray strongly recommended!

I'm so sorry you've both caught it but thanks for posting a warning as it really is very important to use a repellent at all times.
