China Accessible TravelChina, an ancient and mysterious land, with its resplendent history and culture, abundant in varieties of plants, animals, and countless historical interests, appeals to tourists and business travelers. As the Beijing 2008 Olympic and Paralympic Games approaching, more and more foreigners, including those with disabilities, will visit China.
China Accessible Travel, a new project launched by the China Administration of Sports for Persons with Disabilities (CASPD) and China Travel Service Head Office (CTS), provides travel services for the slow walkers, the physically and developmentally challenged and their able bodied companions. In cities such as Beijing, Xi'an, Shanghai and Guilin, the recommended accessible attractions, accommodations and restaurants have been inspected and graded according to our rigid assessment criteria. We have a sufficient number of comfortable vans and coaches equipped with ramps or lifts for wheelchair users. Besides professional foreign language speaking tour guides, well-trained personal-care assistants accompany those requiring these services throughout the travel.
