Years ago, Malaysia recognized that medical tourism could be a very promising and lucrative part of its overall tourism industry. The numbers of people seeking treatment in Malaysia has continued to grow, and Penang is now the destination for more than half of these healthcare travelers. Hospitals and healthcare facilities in Penang offer a wide array of procedures and services for medical travelers, amongst the most popular being breast revision. Medical tourism in Penang is one the fastest emerging destinations catering for health travelers from all around the world.
Penang draws medical tourists from other Asian countries, particularly Indonesia, and also Bangladesh and Pakistan, whilst patients from richer Asian countries like Singapore and Japan , visit Penang due to the lower prices of medical procedures. Australians and people from the European Union are also attracted to the lower cost of treatment in Penang, whilst Middle Eastern patients visit Penang for both the price and the quality of healthcare provided.
