    Just read a Thai Ministry of Health guide which warns against wearing black or bright coloured clothing as apparently it attracts mozzies.White,khaki,biege or olive are the best colours to wear if you don't want to be seen.
    Other advice includes the obvious benefit of repellents and nets but also includes advice not to wear perfumes or after shave as that attracts them too.
    So no more Hawaiian shirts and Brut then.;)
