Medical tourism: With the high cost of healthcare, people are tending to go to foreign countries such as hongkong, india, singapore etc. The typical surgeries people go for hip replacement, bypass surgery, hysterectomies etc after the surgery they are placed in a resort for quick rehabilitation. And costs a lot less, most of the time they get quality care.
