More medical travellers to Thailand

 

Thapanee Kiatphaibool says in the article that in 2016, Thailand welcomed more than 60,000 medical tourists from China, England, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, India, Germany, Australia, Vietnam, America and Qatar.

Thapanee goes on to say, "Thailand is home to 64 hospitals accredited by Joint Commission International, which assures visitors safety and high-quality standards - this is the highest number in Asean and the fourth in the world."

The article claims that Thailand is best known for its regenerative and anti-ageing programmes, rehabilitation, in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) and wellness centres.

In the coming year, TAT is promoting 12 cities including Bangkok, Khao Yai, Hua Hin, Khon Kaen and Udon Thani as top-class health destinations, where tourists can take advantage of quality treatments and enjoy a shopping experience, sight-seeing tour and hospitality during their stays.
