Kaohsiung - Post Report Question and Answers

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

It is not a good city for anyone with physical difficulties (or with a baby in a stroller)! If there are sidewalks (and that's a big if), they're usually taken care of by the owner of the store that it's near. Some take care of their sidewalks, others don't. There are also usually scooters parked on the sidewalks too, so there's a lot of weaving, ups and downs, and other obstacles. Buildings also don't often have access either. But in the four years we lived there, we saw a vast improvement. - Aug 2011
