TAT Governor Suraphon Svetasreni said, “Health and wellness is one of our key target niche-market in our 2014 action plan. With many destinations offering health and wellness products and services all over the world, ensuring that foreign patients receive accurate, regularly updated information and advice can be crucial to the decision-making process.”

Thailand is one of the world’s most popular medical tourism destinations, with an estimated 2.5 million visitors coming to seek both preventive and curative treatments and therapies.

It boasts over 200 international-standard hospitals and clinics, 19,000 professional doctors and over 100,000 nurses. In addition to state-of-the-art medical technology, reasonable medical costs and excellent hospitality, Thailand is a perfect place for post-treatment convalescence and recovery. Both patients and members of their family can enjoy a good holiday in Thailand at excellent value-for-money prices.

To provide visitors with even more choices and greater value for money, the wellness products are offered in the form of packages that combine medical, physical and emotional consultations, traditional therapies, East-and-West spa treatments, plus various courses and classes. Many hospitals offer a wide range of services with emphasis on medical check-ups, Anti-Aging, Detoxification and Holistic treatments.
