    Hi Michelle,

    While I'm no doctor, I'd say that despite your mazziemagnetness I'd suggest you'd be better served with a good supply of repellent, a mosquito net and sensible cloths (long, light coloured sleeves and pants in the evening) than you would be with a dose of malarials.

    Nevertheless if you still want to get them, they're a good deal cheaper in Thailand than in the UK.

    Rabies -- no I wouldn't bother -- just keep your distance from backpackers who are frothing at the mouth ;-)
