The level of accessibility in Thailand is variable: a wide number of tourist attractions are accessible for wheelchair users, others less, which is why you need a good guide, also for the language. According to the Thai constitution, now every building being planned must take accessibility into account. For this reason the shopping malls are highly accessible and have adapted toilets, while in the lovely open air markets, great spots to visit, it will be more complex to find one.
Wheeling around is also a bit difficult, due to uneven sidewalks, lack of curb cuts, vehicles parked everywhere and phone cabins that block the passage… so gather a lot of patience and a good travel companion to take on a promenade. On the plus side, all metro stations in Bangkok are accessible, as are 16 stops of the Skytrain. You will be able to easily take the Bangkok Airport Rail Link from the ariport to the city centre.
Small and budget hotels and accommodation are generally without lifts and not accessible, while superior level hotels are generally well equipped.
One element which is always mentioned for Thailand is that where the surrounding environment lacks in accessibility, the locals make up for in kindness, and willingness to help.
There are 5 airports in Thailand, two of which are located in Bangkok:
International Airport of Suvarnabhumi – Bangkok
All the 5 airports have reserved parking, lifts and ramps and adapted toilets. One cool feature of the Bangkok Airport is that the touchscreens that give information on the terminal (shops, services etc), have an accessibility option which moves all the controls of the screen to the bottom so a person using a wheelchair can use it more easily.
