Skål Chiang Mai members and friends met at Le Meridien Chiang Mai on Thursday, February 26, 2015 for their monthly meeting and dinner. Local business owner Michelle Ring of Absolute Bootcamp Fitness spoke to the gathering about the rise of medical tourism and more specifically wellness tourism which falls under medical tourism.

She noted wellness tourism includes bootcamps, yoga retreats, spa and wellness retreats. She noted that medical tourism has grown worldwide by 14% annually but wellness has grown by 18% and Thailand is a prime destination. She pointed out that the government takes this very seriously offering BOI promotion for eligible wellness and medical tourism businesses.

New Membership Director Supachok “Joe” Buranasilapin signs up new member Jane.

The interesting talk sparked discussion about fitness and health with Michelle asking everyone how many exercised three times a day, a pretty good number raised their hands before returning to the fabulous dinner. Host Greg Anderson, General Manager of Le Meridien, was on hand to greet guests and thank everyone for joining the evening. The staff came out for a round of applause before the evening ended.

Skal International is a travel and tourism professionals organization that works to bring together people in the travel industry and spark discussion and find solutions.

Irene Thepper-Sukanya of Le Meridien meets with members Lamorna Cheesman of Studio Naenna and Armelle Pennors-Chungcharoensuk of Chang Puak Magazine.
