    Good choice! Whereabouts you going?

    I would recommend buying seperate repellent/sun cream, simply because there are a lot more mosquitos around dusk and you wont want to be wearing sun cream in the evening!
    Anything with DEET is a good bet, but if over 50% you have to be careful it doesnt dissolve watch straps/clothes! I use spray with Icaridin in it, which is less harsh but still effective.

    Have you been to that part of the world before? Only major thing I'd say is that whatever happens, even with bad service or something, keep your cool. In Asia 'saving face' is really important and as soon as you get angry, you have pretty much no chance of resolving anything.

    Enjoy I love Thailand, in fact I love everywhere in SE Asia...favourite place in the world.
