Bumrungrad Hospital gives infos about health in Bangkok

I just discovered a very handy app from the Bumrungrad Hospital; It is called Healthy Living in Bangkok, and as the name suggests, gives basic information for newcomers. It is aimed on expats, but can be useful for tourists as well.

As you can see from the table of contents, the app informs you about vaccination cycles, hospitals, common diseases and gives some basic tips how to stay safe. It also provides a simple map with major POI in downtown as well as BTS/MRT lines and parks. And of course you can make appointments with the hospital right from the app.

Although helpful, it could provide a bit more tips about healthy living, like where to buy organic food, healthy Thai dishes, fitness advice and so on. But since the app is just the frame for the several issues (English and Japanese, by the way), maybe more is yet to come.

The app is free and available for iPad users on the itunes store.
