Hi Folks, I am travelling to Bali with my wife on Aug 1st to 6th. I am a elbow crutch user, with a fair bit accessibility (basically I can climb stairs with rails, or those with enough area to rest my feet). I wanted to check what are the tourist spots that are not very disabled accessible that (a) I should avoid (b) take any assistance if available ? Any insight would be well appreciated. Cheers, Prashanth
Hi Prashanth, Your question is a difficult one to answer. Facilities for the disabled are virtually non-existant in Bali and in Indonesia generally. E.g. access to temples and palaces in Bali is always through a flight of stairs. Temples generally have a porch with high threshold. So I think you would need some assistance with them. You may want to stay in Ubud, visit the Balinese Art Museum and attend a dance performance - reasonably accessable. But getting around in town on narrow and crowded sidewalks may be difficult. And if you decide to take a taxi, you may spend a lot of time in traffic jams. Are there any specific sights you have in mind, then we might comment in these. Regards, Theo
