Default Advice for disable travellers to Vietnam

Vietnam is not the easiest of places for disable travellers. Typical
problems include the crazy traffic, a lack of pedestrian footpaths, a
lack of lifts in smaller hotels and the ubiquitous squat toilets.
Vietnam travel

You should find a reliable company to make travel arrangements and
donít be afraid to double-check things with hotels and restaurants
yourself. In the major cities, many three to five-star hotels (two-
star one in some case) have lifts and disable access is improving. Bus
and train travel is not really geared up for disable travellers, but a
private vehicle with a driver can let you go almost anywhere.

Remember that anything is possible. Vietnamese are always willing to
help you.
