It is my honor to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue on “Tourism and Health”.
Tourism and health are inseparable because people can relax both mentally and physically through travel. For example, along with economic growth, people hope to enhance their quality of life, so they travel to improve their mental health. Another example is medical tourism because a lot of people travel abroad for basic medical treatments, highly advanced surgical procedures, healthcare, and beautification purposes. More importantly, such medical tourism significantly affects the national economy.
Thus, this Special Issue seeks papers on health in the context of tourism. This Special Issue is theoretically meaningful because little research has examined the relationship between tourism and health. In addition, from a practical point of view, this Special Issue is expected to play a significant role in developing marketing strategies for travel agencies, focusing on medical tourism.
