This is how we assumed the meaning if tourism but in reality, tourism is actually broad. That means that tourism doesn’t only promote beautiful places to visit, it also promotes other areas such as the medical capabilities of a certain country. In other words, you are also considering medical tourism. Thus, in layman’s term, a medical tourism is promoting not the beautiful spot rather the medical competitiveness of the country. This includes the skills of their medical practitioners, the hospital facilities, laboratories, medical equipment, and a lot more related to medicine. You are also promoting the fact that availing the medical facilities of that country means cheaper expenses as compared when you treat yourself in your own country.
