HEALTH & WELLNESS



Health services in Malaysia are very developed and efficient and rank among the best in the region. First class medical facilities are available in all major cities with well-equipped public or private hospital and clinics that are run by highly qualified staff. Many foreign patients, predominantly from ASEAN countries, have travelled to Malaysia to seek treatments related to cardiology, dentistry, gastroenterology, screenings, general surgery, orthopaedics, ophthalmology and plastic surgery and paying a substantially lower cost than many other countries. Since 2008, the Malaysian Government has put a huge effort in promoting health tourism throughout the world; one of the ways was to extend the visa period for health tourist from one month to six months to allow the health tourist to stay in Malaysia for a longer period. Malaysia is also an ideal destination for complete rejuvenation and relaxation as the country has some of the finest spas in the world be it on a pristine island or right in the middle of the city. There is a vast backdrop of health rituals in Malaysia, from traditional Malay massages and India Ayurvedic treatments to Oriental acupressure practices.
