About China

The most populous country on the planet, China, is a country of contrast. It has booming metropolises with dazzling modern buildings and some of the most breathtaking ancient monuments of the world. On the other hand, it also offers striking mountains, rivers, plains, and valleys. It is full of micro-cultures, ethnicities, languages, and cuisine.

Beyond its ancient monuments, ultra-modern buildings, and natural beauty, China is also attracting people from all around the globe for its healthcare. The country’s medical tourism market is growing rapidly as more and more international medical tourists travel to China to have high-quality medical treatments at a fraction of the costs charged by hospitals in Western countries, such as the US and UK. Besides conventional medical treatments, many medical tourists also come to the country to try traditional Chinese medicine and therapies, such as acupuncture and traditional massage.
