Relevant tourist and municipal organisations are working together to develop Krabi as a city of ‘Tourism for All’ by developing facilities for the disabled and elderly persons.
Today (June 19) officials, led by the Krabi Governor Lt Col ML Kittibodee Prawit, were inspecting a pier at Pak Klong Ji Lard in Muang Krabi where tourists depart on boats to Koh Phi Phi and Koh Lanta.
Governor Lt Col ML Kittibodee, who is presently in a wheel chair having to wear a splint on his leg (as he had sustained an injuries after a football accident), was a representative of other disabled people for the day.
Governor Lt Col ML Kittibodee says, “Today’s inspection was to check the standard and usability of utilities and infrastructure for our ‘tourism for all’ campaign. Tourism should be available for any gender, disability or age. We have invited some disabled people who are also elderly, blind or deaf to test those facilities. We are expecting, and hoping, that in the next few years, more disabled and elderly people will be travelling in Krabi because of the initiatives we’re putting in place.”
