When I went I got the Malerone (Not sure how to spell it) tablets, they're very expensive. I took them for a while and stopped half way through, I was in Northern Thailand, Laos and lived in Cambodia for 6 months. Malerone is actually used to cure Malaria as well. It's the best drug out there (don't think you can get it in Ireland) and I didn't experience any side effects

We (and anyone we met) didnt bother taking antimalarials in asia or south america. You might need yellow fever in asia and the one you need to make sure you dont get bitten by mozzys is Dengue. apparently dengue feels like you imagine malaria does. There is no vaccine for this either.

I'm just about to go to Africa there and wasnt going to bother with antimalarials but changed my mind and got the malerone. Apparently a lot of people get in in Africa.

Been living in Thailand for over 4 years, never had any shots. Never had anything, besides 4 cases of VD and 2 stomach bugs. I rarely eat food from the street vendors any more but never got sick in my first 2 years.

Don't be a hypocondriac, don't eat street food if the stall doesn't look clean and you'll be fine - probably more harm being done by the worry about it.
