Chiang Mai Medical Tourism

Medical Tourism in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai is one of the great Asian cities, and is always ranked high in travel magazine and international surveys. It is ideal for medical tourists not only because of its treatment facilities, but also because of the range of its post-treatment spas, resorts and alternative healing centers. Although hidden away somewhat in the north of the country, and in Bangkok’s shadow, Chiang Mai is nonetheless an excellent alternative in many ways, and well worth considering.

Why Health Tourism in Chiang Mai?

This is a big city with a small town feel, and a short drive in any direction takes you out into the rice fields and surrounding mountain peaks. Meanwhile, within the city’s confines are many international restaurants, bookstores, pubs, clubs, universities and world-class hospitals. There are numerous, beautiful resorts found both within and nearby Chiang Mai that are ideal for recuperating. Medical tourists can enjoy diverse cultural activities before or after their treatments, including watching cultural performances, taking a handicraft workshop and attending a Thai cooking or massage class. Those feeling a little more adventurous might consider visiting elephant camps or perhaps a nearby hill tribe mountain village, some within an hour of Chiang Mai.

Getting There and Around

Chiang Mai is commonly known as Thailand’s second city and is essentially the de facto capital of northern Thailand. It is easily accessible with an international airport offering many domestic and international flights daily. The train line from Bangkok also ends in Chiang Mai. Vehicles can easily be rented in Chiang Mai, either with or without drivers, and there are a wide variety of local transportation options available.
