We are flying into Bangkok on the 30th of December, and plan on spending 2 months travelling all around Cambodia (Phnom Penh, Kampot, Koh Kong, Battambang and Siem Reap.), from south to north in Laos (particularly 4000 Islands and Luang Prabang), to Chang Mai (north Thailand) and Phuket. Can anyone speculate on the flood/flood recovery progress by January? Do you think the places we want to visit in Cambodia and Laos will be accessible by then? What vaccinations should we particularly get given that the risk of disease will likely be higher than usual?
Thanks in advance!

Except for around Bangkok there is no more flood problem in most of the region. The main Bangkok airport is OK and the city is slowly but surely drying up with most tourist spots open as usual. The standard vaccinations worth getting are Hepatitus A/B, Tetanus, and Typhoid. Apply spray to avoid mosquito bites (malaria and dengue fever).
Both my wife and son got Dengue fever. It sucks. You want to avoid that.

Cheers for the reply. I'm mostly worried about Cambodia and Laos as there seems to be not much information on the current situation in these countries. Anyone have any info about these areas?
