The Asian continent is a place of intrigue for the majority of westerners. Its history, culture and people make it far more "exotic" than Aruba or Tahiti.

Accessibility is rapidly improving in Asia, even in radically poor countries like Cambodia and Thailand. Travelers with disabilities often write off the marvelous cities in Asia as inaccessible. This is not true. Disabled travelers to Asia will face more challenges than they might in the United States, but none that are too significant to be overcome. Several of the cities listed below -- Hong Kong, Seoul and Shanghai -- all have greater access to public transportation than New York City!

Use these destination guides to plan and prepare for a wheelchair accessible vacation in Asia. Each guide is filled with information gained from my personal experience traveling through Asia with a wheelchair. Sit atop the Great Wall of China. Enjoy the street food in Seoul. Ride a cable car in Hong Kong. You can do it all... even in a wheelchair. Let me show you how to #OpenYourWorld.
