The high-quality healthcare on offer

To begin with, healthcare in Thailand is now widely recognised as being among the highest-quality available anywhere in the world. The country has a large number of internationally accredited facilities that offer cutting-edge technology and highly trained and experienced medical professionals. Some of the advanced treatments offered here are superior to those carried out in other countries across the world.

These include:

    • Low cost high-quality operations


This last one is a huge reason for choosing Thailand for medical reasons. Healthcare in Thailand is far cheaper than in most developed countries, while still maintaining excellent standards. You can get a knee or hip replacement for around a third to a half of the amount you would spend in a country like the USA. And you can recover on a breath-taking beach after your successful operation.

Much of Thailand tourism is for healthcare purposes, to get treatments that are unavailable or unaffordable in many other places around the globe. The highly trained and specialised doctors and nurses here offer hope to those still suffering from long COVID, to those suffering from cancer or who want to live longer and healthier lives. 

The leisure options available here

Thailand tourism is also based, unsurprisingly, on the incredible climate, stunning scenery, and choice of activities that you can do when you come to Thailand. For those who wish simply to lie out on a beach or paddle in the sea, this country is internationally recognised as having some of the most picturesque and enjoyable beaches in the world. There is no shortage of greenery either. 

Thailand has a variety of landscapes and natural beauty for you to discover at every compass point of the country. Thailand has become famous for its many golf courses. It also offers sea sports in so many locations and a wide array of other sports and activities. You can wander the streets absorbing the amazing culture, head to one of the bustling and lively night markets or settle down to a tasty Thai meal. 

With all these reasons for choosing Thailand, you can see why millions of people flock to this country each year. These activities, the scenery and more also offer benefits to those who come here for medical purposes. You can recover and enjoy a holiday all at once.

How Thailand’s beauty and climate can aid your recovery

Beyond the benefits of your location both before and after receiving healthcare in Thailand, you can also improve your standards of healthcare by making the most of your surroundings. At ImagineHealth Thailand many of the advanced treatment programs involve a combination of the natural and the conventional. 

Our NeuroRestoration Vacation, for instance, combines true recovery therapies with a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. You can receive top of the line rehabilitation through medical methods, but also start to recover as a whole by embracing where you are and what you can do here. 

The best healthcare hubs

If you are thinking of embracing medical tourism in Thailand for yourself, there are many facilities that you can choose from all across the country. Some of the best places to blend healthcare and leisure are Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui. Here you can receive top notch healthcare and make the most of the area surrounding your hospital or clinic.


Bangkok’s best hospitals were the first to gain international accreditation as world-class institutions, and you can still receive exemplary healthcare here now. Some of the facilities here boast truly luxurious accommodations for recovery, and you can easily get to incredible tourist attractions within the city. 

You can also head out from here to nearby beach destinations, hop to an island or really travel wherever you wish with ease. Bangkok is the centre of Thailand, and one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Head here to discover why for yourself.

Koh Samui

This island in the Gulf of Thailand is famous for its incredible beaches, lively town centres and beautiful waters. Many facilities for the treatment and recovery of illnesses and issues have set up their homes here. On Koh Samui you can receive the very best in specialised care, while also enjoying the best of the weather, the scenery and the leisure activities that you can do.

The island has no shortage of beautiful tourist hotspots, as well as some of the best healthcare available when it comes to cancer recovery, getting over an operation and more.


This much larger island truly brings together all of the best parts of Thailand. It has natural beauty, peaceful, secluded beaches and lively hubs of activity if you want them. It is also home to many world-class facilities that specialise in a variety of treatments. Many medical tourists head here to get the most advanced anti-aging treatments, while also engaging in a regimen of exercise and enjoyment in the area.
