(Oct 19): From a luxury spa in central Bangkok, Wei Siang Yu hopes to lure Thailand’s latest tourist target: couples needing a bit of extra magic to make babies.

Billed as “second-honeymoon” breaks, Wei provides wellness treatments in tranquil surroundings designed to boost the chances of naturally conceiving and bearing a healthy child. The Singaporean national has ambitions of hosting thousands of couples next year paying 30,000 yuan ($5,973) each for a three-day programme, and reckons around half of them will travel from China.

“We see a huge market in this new topic of lifestyle modification, which requires a balance of body, mind and soul,” said Wei, a trained doctor who fronted TV programmes in Singapore last decade such as ‘Dr Love’s Super Baby Making Show’.
