There are so many different mosquito nets around, I'm confused which is the best, lightest, easiest to hang. Can anyone advise me? I will be using it in hotels and hostels, I'm not camping out. Hope someone can help. Many thanks

If you stay in hotels with air conditioning you probably won't need one anyway! With the A/C on you usually have the windows shut - no mosquitoes!
You can also get one of those coil things that you light off and slather on some repellent if you want.
If you plan on staying in cheap dorms with no A/C and open windows then maybe you should have one. Some cheap hostels already have a net over the crappy beds.
From Lonely Planet TG:
From Gap Year:
Lots of posts on this if you use Google.
In over 11 years of in and out of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines and even Myanmar - I have never used one! BUT I only stay in places with A/C and windows shut. (With windows shut the room is quieter, harder to hear street noise!)

Unfortunately, I've got to have one for the Sarawak volunteer project I'm heading to first. Thanks for your reply and advice.

Mosquito nets are extremely affordable in SE Asia, and you'll do just as well picking something up in the market as buying some super-fancy net online or in your home country. I'd check with the Sarawak project as chance are you'll not have been the first volunteer to ask this question.

Got mine in a market in Sihanoukville. Lasted me 3 years so far. I use it regularly in crap places off the beaten track. Cost about $3.
