China Medical Tourism

China Medical Tourism offers everything from cardiology to traditional Chinese medicine

China (People's Republic of China) is situated in eastern Asia, bounded by the Pacific in the east. It is the third largest country in the world (next to Canada and Russia), with an area of 9.6 million square kilometers, or one-fifteenth of the world's land mass.

China has one of the oldest cultures and civilizations, and has contributed to the invention of paper, printing, powder and compass. Chinese had to suffer 80 years of internal turbulence, continuous civil war, foreign interference and Japanese invasion until a communist state, People's Republic of China, was established on October 1, 1949.

China Medical Tourism Fame

China is fast emerging as a desirable destination for individuals seeking medical care in a wide range of medical specialties, including cardiology, neurology, orthopedics and others. A number of private and government hospitals in major cities have established international departments. Many leading hospitals provide treatments integrating Traditional Chinese Medicine with Western medical technology and techniques.

China is home to leading stem cell research and treatment hospitals that offer Westerners stem cell treatments that are still considered experimental or have yet to be approved in their home country.

    Sightseeing

    Towering mountains and dramatic landscapes make up China's wealth - background scenery to the fall of dynasties, the rise of emperors and the turning of the revolutionary wheel. Unless you have a couple of years to tour, it's best to follow a loose itinerary while visiting. Some suggestions would be; Beijing to Tibet via Xi'an's terra cotta warriors, following the Silk Road route, sailing down the Yangzi River, or exploring the Dr Seuss landscape of Guangxi Province.

    China's imperial jewel in the crown is of course Beijing. It has been the capital of China for around 500 years and is home to sights such as the Forbidden City, the off-limits palace of Ming and Qing emperors, their eunuch servants, princesses and harems. The Summer Palace in Beijing was established in the late Qing period, but is also a major attraction. Beijing is the starting point for China's most famous imperial legacy – the Great Wall. The wall can easily be viewed from many places, but most visitors approach it from Beijing.

    China's most famous collection of European architecture is lined up facing the sea on the Bund in Shanghai. Xiamen (Fujian Province) has one of China's most charming collections of colonial architecture, on Gulangyu Island. The fact that there are no motorized vehicles on the small island makes this one of the only places in the country where it is possible to take peaceful walks and appreciate the buildings at leisure.

    China isn't a country - it's its own world. From shop-till-you-drop metropolises to the epic grasslands of Inner Mongolia - with deserts, sacred peaks, astounding caves, and imperial ruins - it's a land of cultural and geographic schisms.

    There are at least 31 English language newspapers from local papers like the Kashmir Times to single genre papers such as The Economic Times, The Financial Express, and The Business Standard.
