Gig, the best would be to take mefloquine (Laraim®, Mefliam®) if there are no cotra-indications. Good luck.

It depends on what time of year you are travelling there. At the moment you probably do need to take anti-malaria pills. But if you were going after April, for example this risk is probably less. Ask your pharmacist he would also be able to tell you. (They have a far bigger knowledge of medical issues than a lot of people realise!)
