If there is a medical emergency or you need to visit a doctor, Chiang Mai Ram is recommended as it has a large proportion of English speaking staff and specialises in medical tourism. However, be wary of doctors over prescribing medicine. This is a common practice in Asia where pharmacies are tied to hospitals and doctors get paid commission on prescriptions. You are unlikely to be harmed by this practice, but it can be expensive. See contact details in the “contacts” section.
