Question about transport in Myanmar

  • Question about transport in Myanmar

    Hi everyone!

    There is a nice conference opportunity in Myanmar and I am considering to apply. Does anyone have information about the accessibility of the transport there? Is it possible to go with electric wheelchair?

    Thank you in advance 🙂

    There doesn’t seem to me much out there!  There is this:

    And Lonely Planet says:

    With its lack of paved roads or footpaths (even when present, the latter are often uneven), Myanmar presents many physical obstacles for the mobility-impaired. Rarely do public buildings (or transport) feature ramps or other access points for wheelchairs, and hotels make inconsistent efforts to provide access for the disabled.

    For wheelchair travellers, any trip to Myanmar will require a good deal of planning…

    Also, you might want to try this company:

    While they don’t talk about accessible travel, they do mention making their website accessible – this indicates they are at least thinking about people with disabilities!

    Finally, you might also want to search for “Burma” which is the old name for it in English…
