Why are medical tourists coming to Asia?

Simple, its cheaper! Much cheaper!

This is the main pull factor that medical tourists are thronging into hospitals here in Asia. Just think, cost of a treatment for example a heart bypass would cost only a fraction of the price one has to pay for treatment in the United States. You would probably have to fork out close to US$80,000 while you only need to pay about US$10,000 here in Asia.

And although its cheaper, the stardard of healthcare is just as good, if not better than those in developed countries. Doctors here in Asia have also been professionally trained in the West, and are the best the countries has to offer. Thanks to a favourable exchange rate, more medical tourists are choosing Asia to get a bigger bang for their buck. The U.S. dollar, the British Pound as well as the Euro are all bigger currencies compared to Asian currencies and for those coming here, get more value for their money.

As a travel destination, Asia is home to some of the most beautiful tropical and exotic locations for travels. Resting and relaxing is an important way to recuperate after a surgery and what better way to do so than enjoying a cocktail perched on a beach bench facing the open sea, in complete anonymity?

A combination of factors have lead to the increase popularity of medical tourism, and as more information becomes available, medical tourism looks set to become the way that more people are going to seek more affordable and enjoyable alternative medical treatment.
