When Aaron went to Malaysia to learn about medical tourism, he became a medical tourist himself after he was mugged by a monkey. The monkey stole Aaron’s glasses, and he had to have new ones made. It turned out to be pretty easy! Malaysia and many other countries actually encourage people from outside their countries to travel there for care. While it’s probably not worth traveling internationally just to save on eyeglasses, there are a lot of arguments in favor of the practice generally. Aaron tells the story of his monkey encounter, and looks at the pros and cons of medical tourism.
Lots of footage included!
