Travelers with Disabilities

With its lack of paved roads or footpaths (sidewalks) – even when present the latter are often uneven – Laos presents many physical obstacles for people with mobility impairments. Rarely do public buildings feature ramps or other access points for wheelchairs, nor do most hotels make efforts to provide access for the physically disable, the few exceptions being in the top end. Hence you’re pretty much left to your own resources. Public transport is particularly crowded and difficult, even for the fully ambulatory.

Travelers with Disabilities

For wheelchair users, any trip to Laos will require a good deal of advance planning. Fortunately a growing network of information sources can put you in touch with those to may have wheeled through Laos before.
