    Hi,

    I am a manual wheelchair user, however am easily able to transfer between seats, between cars, etc. as I have some limited use of my legs and am very fit and active.
    I plan on travelling to Thailand from Australia around November of this year with a friend (able-bodied), and just wondering on some tips for this adventure.
    This is the first time I will be going out of Australia as a traveler with a disability, so am a little nervous about the planning and trip. Any suggestions, re. cheap accommodation that’s accessible, places to go and see and which areas are most accessible, would be fantastic!

    Thanks so much,
    Mel
