  • Written by News Company


Being in a wheelchair shouldn’t mean that you can’t travel, explore the world and live life you the full. All it means is that you have to plan a little more before you do something and choose the right destinations.

It is worth noting that where there is a will there is always a way to explore the most remote destinations but it is easier to start with destinations that are designed to be wheelchair accessible.

  1. Sydney

You can opt to join one of the great wheelchair tours Sydney or you can take in the city by yourself. Whichever you choose to do this is one place that everyone should visit at least once n their lifetime.

Coogee Beach has a fantastic walkway designed specifically for wheelchairs; you can also visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, the famous opera house and a host of other places; all of which are ready and eager to accommodate your needs.

  1. London

Fly to the other side of the world and grab a black taxi anywhere you want to go in the city. They are considered the most accessible taxi for wheelchair users in the world!

  1. Washington D.C.

The capital of the US leads by example. There should be nothing that you can’t do in this surprisingly beautiful city. The buses and the metro are perhaps the best wheelchair friendly transport services in the world.

Although not every bus is wheelchair accessible, every other one is. The ferry to the island and back is wheelchair accessible and you can enjoy an amazing view of the city from Victoria Peak.
