I am going to be travelling through Thai Land and surrounding areas for six months later this year. Are there any precautions that I should be taking? For instance, are there Malaria problems there?

Rosie, malaria is found in the rural, especially the forested and hilly, areas of the whole country, but not in the main tourist resorts. You also have to be careful of cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, hepatitis A, B and E, liver fluke, snakes, leeches and fake Rolexes. :-) Good luck.
