Malaria Risk & Vaccination Information for Cambodia

Malaria risk is present throughout the year in all forested and rural areas, including coastal areas. The exceptions are Phnom Penh and close to Tonle Sap. The risk in Angkor Wat is negligible. However, there is a resistance to the medicine Lariam in the Western Provinces, so you will require either Doxycycline or Malarone in these areas.
