Disabled Travel in Thailand
Who says a disability makes travel impossible? Sure, it might be difficult to get on the elephant, but it's not impossible. And that longtail boat? If you're willing, we can make it happen. And there's never been a problem sitting around a comfortable bar/restaurant talking about the day's activities.
For the past 20 years, we have been creating unique and memorable travel experiences for thousands of clients throughout SE Asia. Now, we are pleased to be able to offer that same high level of service to disabled travelers.
Thailand and the rest of SE Asia are not known as "disabled friendly." Crowded streets, uneven sidewalks, steps without ramps, remote and traditional villages, and hotels built with little or no consideration for the disabled all create barriers that can be difficult to overcome. Difficult, but not impossible.
Armed with a detailed checklist created with input from wheelchair-bound clients and friends, we have personally visited and reviewed hotels and resorts, restaurants and bars, spas, medical facilities, sporting venues, beaches, temples, and dozens of other sites that we believe ANY traveler would love to experience. The results have been interesting. For example, while many hotels claim to be disabled friendly, most are not. Even a cursory check shows that their doors are not wide enough, light switches, wardrobes and bathrooms are often inaccessible (too high, too narrow, high thresholds), and staff are unprepared to deal with the needs of disabled travelers.
But some are. And those are the properties we work with. And with a little ingenuity (and a ramp or two), you can visit most of the amazing sights that Thailand and SE Asia have to offer -- Bangkok's Grand Palace, the River Kwai, Chiang Mai's Night Market, the Elephant Conservation Center, the Yasothon Rocket Festival or the beaches of Bang Saphan, Chumporn, Khao Lak, Ko Chang Phuket and Samui. Visit Angkor Wat and the surrounding monuments in Siem Reap, Cambodia and take a two-day boat trip down the Mekong to Luang Prabang, Laos.
