There was a time when India was a famous destination for the European merchants. They used to buy spices, gold, art & sculpture from here and sell their clothes etc. That was a form of commercial tourism. In later years, with the advent of quick transportation, heritage and wildlife tourism in India sprouted inside the foreigners. The newest trend is medical tourism in India. India is considered far better from its other Asian rivals like Singapore, Thailand etc in many aspects and cities like Bangalore stand shining in the crowd.
Many people from Europe, Africa, America etc are coming to Bangalore for medical treatments either it is a small dental surgery or a severe cancer operation. The key behind this is cheap treatment and the quality of service is that the patients can save up to 60-90% of the amount they would have been charged in their own country for the same treatment. Bangalore is most preferred city for this purpose because of the world-class reputation of best cancer surgeons and other doctors.
