Hua Hin Nadpob accessible shopping part 3

June 21, 2011
Nadpob Market,

Dear disabled readers,

In our previous post about Hua Hin Nadpob market we wrote about the accessible restroom in this shopping mall. It wasn't finished by that time and we've promised to get back to you as soon as we knew more.

Last tuesday we've visited Nadpob again. And went to the wheelchair accessible toilet. It was finished. It has a big sliding door with lock and ample space to move around and turn in your wheelchair or scoot. A right hand tranfer is possible. Like you see they have a pilar underneath the wash basin. And the biggest mistake is that there are no drop down grips next to the toilet. The height is 40cm. It is clean. Hopefully they will change this.

Nadpob is open till 9pm. So when you are in the middle of the town, shopping on the night market, or doing whatever you want to do an accessible toilet is within a 5 minutes walk of every location in the center. Thank you so much Hua Hin Nadpob Market.

And here is a promise. I will email the woman with whome I had contact before. I will ask here to install drop down grips on the wall next to the toilet and some grips close to the wash basin. And maybe they can loose the pilar.

In case you like to know where you can find more wheelchair accessible restrooms just take a look at this map.

Hua Hin Markets with wheelchair access

February 2010, 25
Chatchai Freshmarket Hua Hin

In the middle of Hua Hin just 200 meters from this accessible apartment you will find this fresh market. Shopping for vegetables, fruit, fish and all kinds of preapred food has never been more fun.

See how locals try to earn a living, what kind of food they eat and don't forget try some yourself.  We often buy fruit here, drink Coconut juice and eat Thai snacks. And most important we have never ever been sick from the Thai food, the snacks or the drinks.

So visit this market. It is wheelchair accessible. The best time is very early in the morning or around 11am. In between it will be very crowded with local people. Also nice to see but in a wheelchair it can be a little bit difficult to move around.

Have fun.  And in case you are in a wheelchair and spot me, tell me that you have read this post and I will treat you on a coconut juice. See you there.
