Chiang Rai Medical Tourism

Medical Tourism in Chiang Rai, Thailand

Often the best method to enrich health and wellness is to escape the fast pace of city life for a few days; and some may argue it should be a lifetime. This is exactly the lure of Chiang Rai and the surrounding area with its great beauty, natural resources and rural charm. Most are grateful that Chiang Rai has long existed in the shadow of Chiang Mai, its much grander neighbor located a few hours to the south.

Why Health Tourism in Chiang Rai?

The incredible quaintness of Chiang Rai means the absence of maddening crowds and yet, it also offers the exclusive wellness spas that are completely appreciative of the area’s natural environment. With its ease of access, provided by an international airport, while Chiang Rai may be a bit remote, it is also very accessible.

Chiang Rai province is the perfect base for mountain trekking, excursions to the Golden Triangle, day trips to hill tribe villages within the jungle or tours to mystical Doi Mae Salong or Doi Tung. It is a curious and fascinating small town in its own right, with its diverse population blending to create a welcoming and distinct personality. More and more Westerners are falling prey to her charms as well, and retiring here to enjoy its extremely affordable cost of living.

Getting There and Around

Chiang Rai is somewhat off the beaten path, which is why it is so beautiful and peaceful. However, it is not that difficult at all to get there – by plane, bus, car or even motorcycle, which is a gorgeous ride through the mountains. Thai Airways as well as Thai AirAsia have daily flights between Bangkok and Chiang Rai.  Once there, there are a number of car or motorcycle rental companies, or given Chiang Rai’s size, you might even rent a bicycle for the duration of your stay there.
