Ho Chi Minh City publishes medical tourism guidebook to boost flow

 

In HCM City, 11 hospitals have registered to provide medical tourism services. About 10,000 copies are scheduled to be distributed to tourism agencies, hotels and hospitals in the city.

The South Asian Travel Company is working with dental clinics in HCM City to offer treatment to Vietnamese nationals living overseas. Most people attracted to local hospitals and cosmetic surgery clinics are also Vietnamese nationals living overseas, but foreigners are beginning to arrive too.

Based on its 2017 success, HCM City aims to attract between seven and eight million international visitors and 29 million domestic visitors in 2018. 6.3 million international visitors to the city in 2017 were Chinese or Korean. To meet the 2018 target, the city will have to invest in infrastructure, such as public transport, international terminals and luxurious accommodation.
