I'm coming to Thailand soon for a holiday and was thinking about getting a comprehensive medical check up? What is the standard of healthcare like? Are the hospitals clean? Can the doctors speak English? Does it take a long time and should I book in advance? I've heard that hospitals can be of an international standard in Asia, but I am not convinced. Perhaps someone can provide me with some local information?
I was just reading a newspaper report about Dengue fever in Thailand. Apparently a lot more cases have been reported aleady this year. I've never heard of anyone getting Dengue here in Bangkok, but wanted to hear if anyone else knew someone who had got Dengue while staying here in Bangkok? Is it something I should be concerned about?pixie
