One answer, and only one. Consult a medical professional, usually to be found at your own surgery. One thing NOT to do is to consult a number of people you don't know and who have no knowledge of your medical history or that of anyone accompanying you.

Whilst Taylor's answer is correct, I would also recommend you do your own research. Sadly, nurses and doctors at some local GP practices might not be totally au fait with the requirements. Consequently, I would definitely check the NHS website at, which will suggest aspects you might want to discuss with your health professional. The Malaria maps for Cambodia are particularly relevant, because recommendations vary, depending upon the areas you will visit. Anti-malarial medication is essential for some parts of the country. In other parts, you won't need to take the tablets, but should still take precautions against mosquito bites. In general terms, it is always sensible to be up to date with vaccinations against Tetanus, Diptheria, Polio, Typhoid, Hepatitis A and possibly, Hepatitis B, when you travel to third world countries with questionable sanitation. We are due to visit Vietnam and Cambodia in February 2017 and the practice nurse at our GP practice (who is very competent) also asked us to consider whether to have a Rabies vaccination (not essential, so we will give that one a miss).
