Would someone with physical disabilities have difficulties living in this city?

Absolutely. There are no reliable sidewalks. Many streets and sidewalks are little more than gravel and rubble. - Jul 2019


Yes. - Jan 2019


It is not a good city for people with disabilities. There are no sidewalks in the city, no ramps; you can never walk anywhere without risking your life with local traffic; very sad. - Sep 2016


Hmmm...probably. Most places have elevators, but they are tiny. There are no sidewalks, and smaller restaurants/stores will not have a wheelchair ramp. - Mar 2015


In many places there aren't any sidewalks. In places that do have sidewalks, they're somewhat in disrepair. - Jan 2015


Very much so. Accessibility is not a priority. - Nov 2014


Tons. Even an able-bodied person has trouble walking here in the city. There are basically no sidewalks. And the places that have sidewalks are covered with unmentionables. - Jul 2014


There is no accommodation made for people with physical disabilities. Walking on the street is hard enough for people who are perfectly able. - Mar 2012


This city is not handicapped-accessible. Many buildings do have elevators, but you have to climb stairs to get into the buildings. - Feb 2012


There are no accommodations made (outside of the consulate) for people with disabilities, even in the newest and most modern buildings. - Jan 2011
