Thailand is still one of the World’s top 5 destinations for Spas despite the Baht’s fluctuation rates.

The tourists are looking for quality services and medical professionalism in Spas that don’t really mind the costs due to the fluctuating exchange rates. Thailand’s medical costs are not that different from other countries in Asia and the Doctor’s fee is a bit cheaper. Its growth in the country’s medical progress and professionalism and the choices available to patients. However, Thailand has been weak in advertising and public relations to lure medical tourists. Just last year, 2.4 million foreigners sought for medical services and they spent 140 billion Baht in total.

There will be a “Medical and Wellness Familiarization Trip” in Bangkok which will be on August 12-18. Last year’s same event reflected Thailand as a regional medical and spa destination. This event is one of the campaigns to further boost Thailand’s medical and spa operations. This familiarization trip aims to attract wealthier tourists from other countries like Australia, the Middle East, Russia, the United States, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and China.

Hundreds of people pushed, prodded and stretched their way to a new world record for the biggest simultaneous group massage in Bangkok on August 30.

The event was staged by the Thai government in an effort to lure foreigners to a country whose tourist-friendly image has been tested in recent years by deadly floods, political violence and concerns about crime and safety.

Supporters of traditional Thai massage say people in pain need look no further than their local spa.
