ACCESSIBLE TRAVEL

Vietnam is not the easiest country for disabled travelers. The chaotic traffic, a lack of lifts in smaller hotels and sidewalks that are often blocked by parked motorbikes and food stalls all make it quite difficult for mobility-impaired people.

Still, visitors with limited mobility do go to Vietnam. With some careful planning, it is possible to enjoy your trip. Many mid-range hotels have elevators and disabled access is improving. You can find accommodations suitable for wheelchair users by checking the ‘Facilities for disabled guests‘ option in your Booking.com search criteria.

Buses and train travel is tough, but rent a private vehicle with a driver and almost everywhere becomes accessible.

The hazards for blind travelers in Vietnam are pretty acute, with traffic coming at you from all directions, so you’ll definitely need a sighted friend.
