Advice for disable travellers

Vietnam is not the easiest of places for disable travellers. Typical problems include the crazy traffic, a lack of pedestrian footpaths, a lack of lifts in smaller hotels and the ubiquitous squat toilets.

You should find a   reliable company to make travel arrangements and don’t be afraid to  double-check things with hotels and restaurants yourself. In the major cities, many three to five-star hotels (two-star one in some case) have lifts and disable access is improving. Bus and train travel is not really geared up for disable travellers, but a private vehicle with a driver can let you go almost anywhere.

Remember that anything is possible.  Vietnamese are always willing to help you.
