From the home of acupuncture and herbal medicine, a specialist UK tour operator is prescribing a dose of medical tourism with health tours to China.
Wendy Wu Tours has partnered with China’s Shaanxi Provincial Tourism Development Commission which is in the northwest of the country, home to the start of the Silk Road and ancient capital Xi’an as well as the location of the famous Terracotta Warriors.
Those suffering with complaints such as insomnia and even hair loss will be able to combine a holiday tour around parts of China with specialist help and traditional cures from experts.
Wendy Wu explained, “We are working with experts in China to offer medical & health products for a range of common illnesses. The Chinese are renowned for effective cures. We want to harness these as part of a holiday itinerary.”
Direct flights between Gatwick and Xi’an with Tianjin Airlines are to be launched.
