Unique advantage

Hainan, a top spot to go for medical tourism

Richly endowed with tourism resources, Hainan is one of the best places for medical tourism.

Due to multiple factors such as favorable natural and medical conditions as well as the increasing market demand, Hainan has started planning for the development of medical tourism, and has obtained approval from the State Council to build the medical tourism-themed Boao Lecheng. The provincial government plans to develop Lecheng into a globally famous medical tourism destination.

Huge potential

During the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference 2012, experts said that Hainan still has a long way to go in medical tourism, and should take the following four measures to boost the development of the industry. First, it should establish an industry association to improve management. Second, it should effectively integrate various resources, and develop a series of medical tourism products. Third, it should encourage local hospitals to obtain international hospital accreditation in order to attract foreign medical tourists. Finally, it should properly integrate traditional Chinese medicine with tourism.
