Swedes are one of the most mobile nationality in Europe. For several years ago people started to combine leisure travelling with medical background, e.g. surgeries, beauty and dental treatments or spa/wellness tourism, that were a lot cheaper than in Sweden. The boom started with cosmetic and plastic surgery, savings on the treatment abroad (in Thailand or Malaysia) could reach 60 per cent. For the potential Swedish woman (because men are still the margin in this case), for whom good health and good looking is a priority, the possibility to fix her looks while having a vacation is worth of consideration when making holiday plans.
