Hong Kong’s first wheelchair-friendly tour:
A step towards broadening Hong Kong’s tourism appeal and achieving disabled rights in the city
Being in the midst of the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games, audience around the world are being stunned by the athletes who push past their physical impairments to reach for their dreams.
In admiration of such inspiring individuals, Walk in Hong Kong and Diamond Cab are thrilled to announce Hong Kong’s first wheelchair-friendly regular night tour – Good Evening Kowloon! Come join us for a night adventure through dizzying array of markets, singing parlors, road-side restaurants and fortune tellers along Temple Street (Regular tour runs every Tue and Sat, 7:30-10:30 pm)
For booking: http://walkin.hk/tours/good-evening-kowloon/
You are cordially invited to join our launching media tour on the night of Sep 27, 2016 (Tuesday) from 7 to 10 pm. We are honored that Srin Madipalli, CEO of Accomable, the world’s preeminent online platform to find disabled accessible hotels, vacation rentals and apartments, has specially flown in from London to attend the event to support our venture!
Walk in Hong Kong wishes to give everyone a chance to explore and learn about the enriching culture that defines Hong Kong, specializing in immersive and memorable experiences.
Diamond Cab is passionate about making a positive change in the society by increasing the mobility of the disabled. We are the pioneering taxi operator in Hong Kong that offers point-to-point transportation service for wheelchair users and also develops leisure and travel business.
Although wheelchair-friendly infrastructures are more commonly found nowadays, there is still a lot of room for improvement in creating a fully accessible society for everyone. There are encouraging signs in the city’s attitude toward disability too. Figures from The Equal Opportunities Commission show that the number of complaints related to discrimination based on disability has fallen from 500 in 2009 to 200 in 2014.
Through our tour, Diamond Cab and Walk in Hong Kong hope to enrich the travel experience of the disabled and increase their opportunity to explore Hong Kong that was not available to them previously. We hope that by introducing Hong Kong’s first wheelchair-friendly tour, which includes point-to-point Diamond Cab transfer, the city will make progress toward improving accessibility for all travelers and increasing awareness regarding discrimination against the physically impaired. We believe that our joint efforts will inspire more businesses to contribute toward a more wheelchair-friendly society.
So mark down the date of Sep 27 (Tue) and come meet us at the Yau Ma Tei MTR Exit C (ground level) at 7 PM. We hope to see you there to support the first ever wheelchair-friendly tour in Hong Kong!
