One of the Thailand interesting facts is that couples from all over the world come to Bangkok because here is legal to choose their baby’s sex and is not very expansive.

More and more tourists come to Thailand to conceive a baby because here the parents can choose the sex of their future baby.

While in Australia, Europe, China or the United States, the choice of the child’s sex is forbidden, Thailand makes more money through the legalisation of this practice.

The most of the tourists come from China, where the rules regarding the births are very strictly.   In China the population is controlled and is allowed to have one baby. The entire procedure is based on the in vitro fertilization technique.


Through it, the doctors manage to select the sex wanted by the parents. Although is allowed, this practice begins to become controversial in Thailand, too. Some doctors choose the patients based on how justified their demand is. The majority still, take advantage of the parents’ desire to make as much money as possible.
