Going to Cambodia in two weeks
I already have the typical Typhoid/Hep/Yellow Fever and such. Our local fixer is saying no need for Malaria tabs, she doesn't know anyone who gets it, just cover up with DEET. We'll be there for 5 days.
Anything else I should be considering?
..if you are not in the city...
if you are tavelling outside the main city - you are really advised to take
have a look and a read here.

Malaria precautions for Cambodia
the local fixer may not know of anyone - but that doesnt mean there isnt anyone! why take the risk - its a small and cheap tablet.
If you use any of the swimming pools offered by the hotels be carefull. Our little Auberge in Siem Reap took us to one they knew of, didn't seem bad. but my friend got Typhoid (yes he had jabs but they are only about 90% effective) and I had to get him to the US embassy in PP (there isn't or wasn't a UK one). It was close and it ended his trip.
he was swimming lengths underwater but not actively swallowing it!
just be carefull.
