Bangkok: Disabled Needs

The City of Angels

Bangkok Disabled Needs

Bangkok is not the most disabled-friendly city. The streets are uneven, often in a bad state and can be dangerous for those who are not disabled. The skytrain and subway has a handful of disabled-friendly stops for disabled people to get around the city. Other than that a holiday for disabled people in Bangkok is a challenging experience. The larger resorts and tourist attractions provide facilities for disabled people but in rural areas public transport is limited and often inaccessible to wheelchair users. Although there are many people willing to give aid to disabled people, there is not much help in integrating them fully into Thai society and therefore services and facilities are not geared towards aiding the disabled.
