The city has the Suvarnabhumi Airport that is a busy international airport serviced by major international airlines, both full service and low cost carriers. It also has the Don Mueang International Airport. This means that you can often get cheaper tickets to fly to the capital.

Thanks to competition, the city has numerous hotels ranging from backpacker’s budget accommodations to plush suites in luxury hotels - with the whole range in between. Food is also cheap. So you are assured of a reasonably-priced holiday.


But what about medical facilities?

Hospitals in Bangkok not only rival the best in the world, but some even exceed the quality. There are a number of JCI accredited hospitals in the city.

The surgeons in Thailand have to undergo rigorous education before they get their degrees and licenses to practice. Many may have done some advanced training in western countries or even worked there. As for the quality of care it is first class – the Thai are a caring and friendly people after all.
