Kep - malaria pills????


In August we will be going to Cambodia - SR, PP and Kep. Although we've been to SR and PP before, we've not been to Kep. Very much looking forward to it! However, I've been advised by the nurse in my doctors' practice to take malaria tablets as Kep is malarial - just wondering what others who have visited Kep have done. I'd opt for Malarone if we decide to take them - any side effects? Can we drink??!!

Thanks in advance, Jo

What? Noone here going to jump on the "DEET will kill you" bandwagon? I'm disappointed.....lol !

+1 to Wanderlust V - Kep is pretty quiet....easily visited as a day trip from Kampot. 2 or 3 days if you want to go out to Rabbit Is.

If the mozzies don't get me then the DEET will!!

Kep doesn't sound like Vegas but I more than happy to lie in a hammock, drinking cocktails for a couple of days!

Can't wait!!

Hi Jo

make time to tip out of your hammock (put your cocktail down carefully first) & wander down to the crab restaurants! Crab with Kampot pepper is to die for :~)
