Wheelchairs & Handicapped Travelers
Visiting major sights in Beijing such as the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace are not a problem. Similarly you may visit major sights in Xi'an and Shanghai. Smaller places may be more difficult or limiting, please work with our agent to customize the best itinerary for your needs.
We recommend a ride through the Hutongs (old alleyways) in a cycle rickshaw, a great way to see the street life in old Beijing while being transported comfortably with your group. You do not need to get out and can skip the family home visit if it does not work for you. Other sights such as Tiananmen Square and the Olympic Venues are vast areas which are ideal for wheelchairs. Parks in China are also common venues for wheelchairs and you will see the elderly pushing their own wheelchairs for exercise.
The Great Wall
If you are game and not overly obese you can take a cable car up to the base of Great Wall. This does mean getting out of the wheelchair, into a gondola car, then back into your wheelchair at the top. You might not be able to go further than the gondola exit as the wall has stairs and can be steep. But at least you can get up to the base of the wall. If you are able to walk a little then you can take a brief stroll on the Great Wall.
We provide cars, vans and buses which can fit a wheelchair, but there is nothing with an automatic lift. You must be able to get in and out of the vehicle with assistance of your guide, driver and travel companions.
We can arrange wheelchair rental for those who would like that service. Please make arrangements with our travel agent.
Hotels & Restaurants
Hotels do not have "handicapped accessible rooms" in most cases. When you are ready to book we can recommend options depending on your budget.We will select good local restaurants where you can get in and out easily. If you have special dietary needs or preferences, we can cater to your needs. Let our agent know the details when building your itinerary.
