Health
Health risks in Thailand are relatively small if care is taken. Hygiene conditions are generally good and Thais are an extremely immaculate race. Showering several times a day is not unusual nevertheless, one can find insufficiently cleaned sanitary facilities in cheaper accommodations.
Since in some parts of Thailand refrigeration is not always available, displayed foods may not be too fresh. So if uncertain, avoid displayed dishes, peeled fruit and insufficiently cooked meals.


Malaria
According to The World Health Organisation, Thailand is listed as a category-C-country, but for travellers and holiday-makers only a very small risk exists. Therefore only the border areas to Cambodia and Laos apply. The south and Bangkok are considered malaria-free.
German travel guides advise against using chemical malaria prophylaxis, while English travel guides endorse these. Many of the Mosquitoes that transfer the malarial parasite, are meanwhile resistant to most of the prophylaxis medicines.
Other protection (mosquito-lattice on the windows and doors and/or mosquito-nets) is recommended. Bright clothes, long trousers, long-armed shirts and if necessary mosquito-repellent for the skin also helps prevention. Mosquito-coils (smoking spirals, available in all supermarkets) reduce the risk to be stung as well, however spread a rather unpleasant smell. Mosquito-repellent for skin application is likewise available everywhere

Having an unexpected fever accumulation, one can be examined on malarial-parasites, if concerned, at the Malaria-clinic in Laem Ngop on the mainland. (250 metres after the intersection in Laem Ngop towards the piers on the left side, directly before the branch to the Laem-Ngop-Pier. Opening-hours: Mon - Fri 8.30 am - 12.00 am & 1.00 pm - 4.30 pm, no telephone.)
If you should choose to use prophylaxis, consult your family doctor or contact a Tropical-Institute in advance.

If suffering from a non-clarified fever after your stay in Thailand, you should be examined for Malaria. The first symptoms resemble those of a flu infection and are often misjudged. Even mild fever and headaches can be signs of possible malarial infections.
