Hello Phil and Viki 😊

Check the WHO(World Health Organisation) website. It gives information about the Malaria risk in every country. Also, double check with a couple of travel clinics. They sometimes differ in opinion about whether Malaria prevention medication is worth taking in the various destinations. I have never taken it in Thailand.

Here is a thread which may interest you.
Malaria prevention medication - Would you consider not taking it?
