The Nerve Biting Excitement, that lies behind Medical Tourism
Medical tourism is a wave that is catching up so fast in India. The reason behind this trend catching up here, is pretty simple. You get world class medical treatments at one tenth of the price for what is available in advanced nations. And as you all must be well aware of, medical services are prohibitively expensive in advanced nations like the UK, USA, Canada and Australia. Quite a lot of immigrants from Middle East or European countries also feel that medical services are way too expensive in their own home country.
As such in India, with the spurt of enhanced and sophisticated infra-structure, quite a lot of reputed hospitals offer you the very same medical and dental services, that too which are very light on your wallet, as such. So, when you get a world class treatment at a nominal price, why not enjoy a sight-seeing trip or a holiday, as well? You can make a trip to India, a medical cum leisure trip. We are now going to discover the top notch tourist attractions at Kozhikode, which is located in North Calicut, Kerala, India.
