Singapore has set up a massive accessibility project to improve life for the elderly and those with disabilities, and it did help. But still, travelers using wheelchairs can find Singapore difficult.
The pavements in the city are nearly all immaculate, MRT stations all have lifts and some buses and taxis have wheelchair-friendly equipment.
The Disabled People’s Association has an online accessibility guide to Singapore.
You can find accommodations suitable for wheelchair users by checking the ‘Facilities for disabled guests‘ option in your Booking.com search criteria.
