Iran is willing to cooperate with Thailand in the field of health and wellness tourism, said a deputy head of Iran Chamber of Commerce, Industries, Mines and Agriculture (ICCIMA), praising the special health and wellness tourism packages offered by Thai centers. 

Mohammadreza Karbasi, ICCIMA’s deputy head for international affairs, made the remarks in Bangkok on Wednesday, during his visits to medical and wellness centers – Apex Medical Center and La Vie Detox and Wellness Center – in the Thai capital to gain knowledge about the special health and wellness services they provide.

Heading an Iranian commercial delegation, Karbasi is currently in Thailand as part of a study visit organized by the Thai Embassy in Tehran and Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT).

The visit is aimed at presenting the special health and wellness packages offered by Thailand’s hospitals and clinics to the Iranian delegation, comprising representatives from ICCIMA and two other Iranian provincial chambers of commerce belonging to Isfahan in central Iran, and Hamedan, western Iran.

Following a two-hour presentation by the center’s experts on diverse topics, particularly its health care programs, Karbasi lauded the special health and wellness tourism packages offered by the Apex Medical Center.

Apex Medical Center provides the highest standard of treatment. The center performs the most up-to-date comprehensive range of state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures and services to help patients achieve and exceed their aesthetic goals.

Listing some of the similar services provided by Iran’s health and cosmetic centers, he said both countries can cooperate with each other in this field by exchanging patients, sharing their experiences, technology and expertise and collaborating in the implementation of joint projects in third countries.

He described his visit to Thailand as an opportunity to meet the Southeast Asian country’s experts, prepare the ground for further cooperation between the two Asian states by establishing closer connections and get inspiring ideas.

The Iranian delegation left Tehran for Bangkok on August 28 and will return to Iran on September 4.

LA Vie Detox and Wellness Center is an anti-aging and wellness center that takes an innovative and holistic approach in helping patients improve their current state of health, prevent age-related diseases and gain more enjoyment and fulfillment in life.

The center’s services include detoxification, massage, IV (intravenous) therapy, ozone therapy and medical checkup. It has infrared saunas, consultation rooms as well as a VIP lounge.

According to World Tourism Organization, Thailand receives around 26.5 million tourists each year, making it one of the most popular global destinations for holidaymakers. In recent years though, this tropical paradise has been attracting a new type of tourist, whose main reason for being in the country is medical treatment.
