Daegu welcomed 11 tourists from Hangzhou, China, on Nov. 26, to take part in a medical tour program. The visitors were in town until Dec. 3 to learn more about the local plastic surgery market and tour the city and its surrounding cities.
The Medical Tourism Economic Development Council, Daegu City, and Gyeongsangbuk-Do Province invited a total of 15 people from Zhejiang’s medical tourism agencies and news reporters, from Sept. 5 to 9, to experience the region’s “excellent” medical technologies. According to Daegu City, the local and regional governments had made several visits to China to promote the excellence of Daegu’s medical technologies and cultural tourist attractions.
Daegu City said the latest development is significant in that it marks the establishment of a regular industry that will bring in a steady flow of medical tourists from China. It added that this was possible because of the Zhejiang travel agency, which specializes in Daegu’s medical tourism packages in China.
