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?

Travelling to HK soon and wanted any inside information people may have about the new outbreak of flu? I know in the previous outbreaks, the authorities were not releasing all the info and the rumour mill was one of the best way to get hard facts!Georgie
