Indonesia What to Pack: 48 reviews and 31 photos


Miscellaneous: <h2>Medical Kit</h2>

<font color=blue>antimalarials.</font> there are several sorts of this. besides primaquine i have described before, you can bring <i>Fansidar</i> or chloroquine (Avlochlor or so) with you, especially for those expecting a prolonged stay in remote areas (irian jaya/papua, kalimantan, and eastern part of sumatra). you might experience stomach upset while taking chloroquine - if so, simply take it immediately after meal. but if you experienced 'yellow fever' or jaundice, then you should stop taking it.
if you feel discomfort after using your medicine, consult a physician. Good luck & happy traveling!
