What is the level of medicine in Thailand?
Healthcare is the key development sector of the Thai government. The Thai authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 25 billion baht for healthcare annually.
As a result, 36,673 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. 64 centers in the Kingdom have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.
Why is Thailand trendy for medical tourism?
The Kingdom of Thailand is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Japan, China, Myanmar and the Middle Eastern countries prefer treatment in Thailand to other places.
Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 2.5 mln international patients travel to Thailand annually. So Thailand is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.
Thailand is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 75% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.
What hotel service is provided here?
In the Kingdom of Thailand, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Thai hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.
When is the best time to travel to Thailand?
The main advantage of Thai resorts is the long beach season. On the east coast and west coast the climate features are different, so take it into account when planning the trip.
