Medical Tourism


As one of the world leaders in medical tourism, Bangkok offers an attractive and reassuring blend of affordability and convenience as well as the highest standards of medical care. Forget long waiting lists and unaffordable procedures, medical visitors to Bangkok often pay less than half the price of the same procedure in their home country, all the while enjoying the same or often higher level of care.

What is Medical Tourism?


Medical tourism is travelling to another country for a medical procedure, whether it is minor or major, a necessary health procedure or a beautifying cosmetic procedure. Medical tourism has seen a steady growth throughout the world as health care prices in many countries continue to rise or a shortage of medical professionals or suitable facilities creates long waiting lists. Medical tourism affords patients the chance to combine a holiday with a procedure or simply recuperate in a relaxed location with a higher level of care.

Why Bangkok for Medical Tourism?
Recent research has shown that factors such as more affordable pricing for both hotel accommodation and treatments as well as a world-class level of patient care has put Bangkok as a global leader in medical tourism. In 2010 alone, an estimated half a million patients traveled to Thailand for medical treatment.
Partnering with Bumrungrad
Bangkok’s Bumrungrad Hospital was one of the first hospitals in Thailand and Asia to be recognized for its exceptional standards of patient care and treatments by the JCI. The Joint Commission International certification (JCI) is recognized as the gold standard in medical certification and serves as a reassurance for first time medical tourists.

The 5 Star The Athenee Hotel is just over 1km away from the hospital making it easy and comfortable to get to and from the ward to your room, and for family and visitors to easily visit you during your stay.
