Thailand is one of the world’s most popular health and wellness tourism destinations, ranging from prevention to cure. While the numbers from the long-standing source markets in the Gulf countries are tapering off, new business is emerging from places; such as, Myanmar, Australia and Russia.

“It is designed to enable the invited buyers to come up to speed with the significant improvements in the quality of Thailand’s health and wellness facilities, services and products, while Thai sellers get an opportunity to learn about new trends and market demands in various source markets.”
