Health tourism boosts Thai economy

Over two million visitors from US, UK and Gulf states spent nearly $4bn in medical-related expenses in 2012.

In just four years the amount of money medical tourists have spent in Thailand has more than doubled.

Last year the government launched a programme to make the country the Medical Hub of Asia by 2016.
