Whether you recently have some unexplained symptoms that you would like to be examined by a doctor or just your routine health check, Bangkok has become a prime destination for medical tourism and provides professional medical check-ups at reasonable cost. The hospitals in Bangkok have good facilities, short wait times and English speaking staff and doctors available. Government and public hospitals are offering the cheapest health check ups starting at average prices of 3,500 Baht, roughly $112. Private hospitals though are a bit more expensive but can offer additional tests and services. Also, the waiting time might be shorter and the process is more straightforward as the staff will guide you through the whole application and examination.
Generally, a basic medical check up consists of test such as body mass index, blood work and cholesterol checks. Depending on your health insurance conditions, a yearly basic check up might be included for free. This is also in accordance with the general recommendation, to get a medical check up at least once a year for anyone above 35 years of age. People with increased risk factors such as smoking, drinking, hereditary health conditions or chronic conditions should consult their physician to customize an individual check-up schedule according to the personal needs.
As already mentioned, for a medical check-up in Bangkok you basically have the choice between government and private hospitals and clinics. All of these facilities are distributed evenly all over the city's area so our recommendations should be just taken as advice. Popular government hospitals for health check-up are King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital, Siriraj Hospital or Ramathibodi Hospital. Recommended private hospitals are facilities of the BDMS group such as Bangkok Hospital or others of their network. Further standalone private hospitals are Bumrungrad International Hospital or Praram 9 Hospital. Advantage of Bumrungrad is its central location in down town Bangkok and the high concentration of hotels near Bumrungrad Hospital.
