malaria meds

Jump to last reply

We're leaving for our 20 day Burma trip on Thanksgiving. We'll be in Nyaungshwe/Lake Inle for four nights and on a Pandaw cruise for ten. Our travel dr. prescribed malaria meds for DH and me for the trip, but I wonder whether they're necessary. The CDC site isn't the clearest about the need for them, although it does specify the Shah state as one where malaria drugs are advised.

Would be great to hear from those who have been in Inle in late November (not generally mosquito season) or traveled on a river cruise at this time of year. I don't remember anyone besides the Dogster doing a Pandaw cruise, but I could easily be mistaken!
