Disabled travel in Cambodia is perfectly manageable so long as you are prepared to move slowly and have the right support from a good local agent. Visitors with limited mobility, especially wheelchair users, may find the usual routes around the Angkor temples challenging due to the very uneven ancient pavements and steps in the doorways.
Fortunately, ABOUTAsia are up to that challenge. We have assisted wheelchair users and amputees as well as visitors some mobility restriction see the Angkor temples, and not just from a distance. We recognise that a physical disability does not limit your imagination or desire to explore. As specialists in tailor-made travel, where every itinerary we write is produced individually, we simply see a visitor with some unique travel requirements.
Angkor Wat, and the rest of the Angkor Temples, was not built with wheelchair users in mind - some of the steps make able-bodied travelers think twice. This means that our research and experience is vital:
When producing your itinerary, we will need to know as much detail as possible about restrictions on your mobility. For some, walking long distances is a problem, but most steps and uneven terrain presents can easily be covered at your own pace - only minor adaptations to our regular programs might be necessary. Others might find steps possible with assistance, and might need some physical helpers.
We can help you see the most of Cambodia, and its archaeological sites, and if you are adventurous enough we may be able to help you see more than you can imagine: getting a wheelchair user to the second level of Angkor Wat is not easy, but can be, and has been, done!
Peerless service standards and local positioning have made us the tour operator of choice by international luxury travel groups and discerning independent travellers to Angkor Wat, Cambodia and Southeast Asia.
