Do I need to get any vaccinations before travelling?
There is a chance you may need to get vaccinations before you travel, please consult your doctor before travelling.
Which vaccinations do I need?
Please check with your local travel clinic.
I know I need to speak with my doctor about vaccines, however, I am wondering if you have had any problems with people being bitten or coming in contact with anything that I should specifically ask about.
People often react differently to common insect bites (mosquito and sand fly). You might want to consider bringing a general anti-histamine and calamine lotion (or similar) just in case.
Am I travelling to a Malarial area?
Whilst cases of malaria do occur in Sarawak and Sabah they tend to be in remote areas, mostly places that tourists do not frequent. Malaria tends to be absent from towns and cities.
Our itinerary avoids known malaria zones in Malaysia.
