Malaria is prevalent throughout Cambodia, and anti-malarial measures should be considered when visiting the country. Consult your doctor or travel clinic for expert advice before you travel. Another useful resource for information on malaria is the Fitfortravel website.
Malaria risk is low in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, and the areas surrounding the Tonle Sap lake and Mekong river. Doxycycline, Mefloquine (Lariam) or Atovaquone/Proguanil (Malarone) are generally recommended if chemical prophylaxis is being considered for visiting Cambodia. No anti-malarial drug is 100% effective, however, and we strongly recommend avoiding bites as the best defence - wear long sleeves and trousers (especially in the evenings), use insect repellent, and sleep under a mosquito net (or in a screened room).
