Fitness Holiday’ in Thailand? have you tried or would you like to try ?
For those of us who view holiday time as an opportunity to do as little as possible while simultaneously gorging on as much junk food as possible, the term ‘fitness tourism’ must seem like a very strange concept. But it’s an actual real thing, and industry experts reckon it’s about to take off.
The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) seems to agree. According to their findings, global wellness tourism revenues grew 14% from 2013 to 2015, and will grow another 37.5%, to $808 billion, by 2020.
Thailand is placed at a solid 13th spot in terms of popularity as a global fitness tourism destination, with nearly 10 million people visiting the kingdom each year in search of a bit of exercise under the sun.
Not surprisingly, there are a growing number of businesses in Thailand catering for the demand. Many offer packages and programs – often including accommodation and food – specifically tailored for fitness freaks. We have gathered a few below ready for your holiday.
