Guide Details Vegas Health & Wellness Travel Options
The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority has produced a 176-page Las Vegas Health and Wellness Destination Guide, in cooperation with the Medical Tourism Association. The guide contains information on medical and dental treatments, cosmetic procedures, corporate wellness programs and retirement living in Las Vegas and southern Nevada. Also included are a directory of medical facilities and travel information.

Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, in her introduction to the guide, stated that the recent opening of the Cleveland Clinic’s Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health “has put [Las Vegas] on the map as a premier medical travel destination.”

A Thai Guide, Too
Another health and wellness travel guide, this one to Thailand, has been produced by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) in collaboration with MasterCard. "Healing Harmony, a Guide to Health & Wellness Holidays in Thailand," available in English and Arabic, is aimed at foreign tourists interested in health and wellness tourism in Thailand.


Thailand’s guide provides information on health and wellness travel facilities and services in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, Koh Samui, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Koh Chang and Chiang Rai.

Healing Harmony also outlines more than 50 “special privileges” available to MasterCard cardholders who take advantage of Thailand's healthcare and wellness services in selected hospitals, clinics and spas. The guide will be distributed at trade fairs and at the tourism authority’s events. It is also available for purchase, in hard copy and e-book, at Amazon.com and other bookstores.
