    Good to hear from U again, Skydreamie!
    Amazing indeed – that was how Hazel’s Taiwan tour story here impacted me when I first read it! 🙂

    The next time I am touring Taipei Taiwan and am tempted to complain about travelling distance, weather, rude locals or fellow visitors, etc – I will recall this story to help put things in perspective haha!

    Enjoy more Tales & Tips – original, intuitive and inspiring in TaipeiDreams!

    No, Sheryl.
    Doraemon land is in Window on China – a theme park nearby Leofoo Village themed park.

    Hi – thanks for all the info on wheelchair travel in Taiwan. My mom is 80 yrs old and wheelchair bound and planning to fly to Taipei in Oct. We were thinking of taking her to see the Sun Moon Lake & I wondered if you knew whether it is wheelchair-friendly there? We have a private van that will take us there.

    Glad you found this Taiwan-on-wheelchair travel story and tips helpful.

    Anita, Sun Moon Lake being a popular tourist spot, I’m sure the facilities (of course not everywhere) will cater well to the physically-challenged in some ways.

    The service providers there will be best able to guide you and your mom-on-wheelchair on location, and help as you need.

    For you – check more details from SML site: http://www.sunmoonlake.gov.tw/English/
    Happy touring! 🙂

    Hi, I would go to Taipei later this month with my 85 years’ old mom. Have to bring along the wheelchair for her. Is the night market wheelchair friendly? Thanks a lot.

    Hi Iris, you may want to watch out for 2 things when touring Taiwan night markets with someone on wheelchair:

    1. Taiwan’s street pavements are uneven and unsettling.
    Yet you can see many physically-challenged locals in wheelchairs and mobility vehicles moving their way happily everywhere.

    2. Night markets will be crowded!
    • On weekends to public holidays.
    • Popularly-congested night markets are Danshui and Shilin.

    Glad you found this Travel Taiwan in Wheelchair series helpful! 🙂

    Very brave to go on free and easy! We are going with our wheelchair-bound mother in Nov/Dec and for half of the trip with a private tour guide. It’s nice to know that disabled can still get around!

    Lovely series of posts – recommending to my friends!
