    Hi everyone,

    New to this community here! Not sure how I can contribute, but do post here if you have any questions about accessibility in Singapore; I can answer to the best of my ability!

    My team and I have been developing a new kind of motorised mobility aid, that can be fitted on to most existing wheelchairs. Will share more about it when it is ready! Amidst of all these groundwork, we have known a lot about the environment around us here in Singapore!

    Cheers

    Rui De, Mobearlize

    Awesome!

    I hear that Singapore has a great public transit system.  In Japan we need the staff to put down a ramp because there is a gap.

    In Singapore, do you need a ramp, or is the gap small enough?

    The gap is small enough and putting a ramp at MRT in not needed.

    I went to Singapore twice last year, once was on the way to Australia and the 2nd was on the way back from Australia. I went with 2 support workers and we found Singapore incredibly accessible. We thoroughly enjoyed the Botanical Gardens, the Aquarium blew us away as we couldn’t believe all the different tanks (the ones with the jellyfish were awesome😀) we even went to the top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel with the iconic swimming pool 😁. I saw an interview the the General Manager of the Marina Bay Sands hotel and he said he doesn’t need to advertise his hotel as most of the guests do it on Instagram from the iconic swimming pool! We were also lucky enough to see the magnificent Vincent Van Gogh immersive experience there and that really blew our minds, his work was mesmeric😊

      Sounds so fun! Did you stay at the Marina Bay Sands or just visit the pool? If so, how was the hotel room accessibility?
