Cambodia Health & Immunizations


Take all the health precautions you need before flying in. Good hospital facilities are rare in Cambodia, and the pharmacies are more limited than one might like. Major complaints will need to be taken out of the country, to Bangkok at the very nearest.

No specific immunizations are required but having some just in case may be wise: malaria prophylaxis, in particular, is recommended for travel into Cambodia. Other diseases you may want to cover with immunizations are cholera, typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis A and B, polio and tuberculosis.

Malaria. Malarial mosquitoes are a dime a dozen in the Cambodian countryside, so bring some mosquito repellent to use at night. Wear long-sleeved shirts and long trousers after dark; otherwise, the more touristy places are relatively safe from mosquitoes.
