ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL

Apart from 4-stars hotels in Manila, Cebu and a handful of larger provincial cities, steps up to hotels, tiny, cramped toilets and narrow doors are the norm in the Philippines. Elevators are often out of order, and boarding any form of rural transport is likely to be difficult.

On the other hand, most Filipinos are more than willing to lend a helping hand, and the cost of hiring a taxi for a day, and possibly assistance as well, is not excessive.

Visitors with limited mobility do go to the Philippines. You can find accommodations suitable for wheelchair users by checking the ‘Facilities for disabled guests‘ option in your Booking.com search criteria.
