Malaria in Yangshuo/Guilin/Yunnan Province?

Jump to last reply

I certainly wouldn't think so--and have never heard otherwise--but the CDC site sure seems to imply that in Yunnan province there exists the threat of Malaria.

As some of you know, we've changed our Japan trip in 3 weeks to China now and are fast and furiously putting together a new itinerary. I completely wasn't even thinking about this--mostly because I've never associated China with any type of malaria risk, but its there on the CDC site.

Any first-hand experience with this? Travel agent won't say one way or another (liability) but sure seemed to imply that it was NOT a risk and malarone was not necessary.

We're in Yangshuo and Guilin for a total of 4 or 5 days. I'm not really worried about it...should I be?

Are any immunizations (other than the standard typhoid, Hep A/B, etc.) needed for China?
