South Korea is set to become the most important medical tourism destination in Asia, as it has the necessary healthcare infrastructure. The global reputation of Korea in plastic surgery attracts foreigners, as it provides them better treatment at low cost. Chinese patients made up the largest group, followed by those from the United States, Japan, Russia and Mongolia. Medical tourist arrival from Russia is also steadily increasing and Russia is expected to replace Japan as the 3rd biggest sender country by 2015. The Korean government is very instrumental in supporting the industry and has designated the Korean Tourism Organization (KTO) to handle the majority of its promotional responsibilities. As a result South Korea is expecting to triple its medical tourism market by 2018 from its current market in 2013.
