Due to travel restrictions amidst the Covid-19 pandemic, we find ourselves unable to bring our loved ones on overseas trips. Thankfully, Singapore's position as a leading attractions destination makes us spoilt for choice when deciding where to visit locally. For our elderly loved ones who have mobility issues, it is important to consider if attractions are accessible and elderly-friendly.
Here we've drawn up 10 'must-see' Singapore attractions which you can take your elderly loved ones to!
#1. Gardens By the Bay
Gardens by the Bay offers visitors a vibrant view of lush greenery and fascinating floral displays. It is designed to cater to everyone including those who require mobility aids.
Check out Grandma Lily and her pink HappyWheels Lightweight Travel Rollator admiring the lush greenery at Gardens by The Bay.
#2. Universal Studios Singapore
Anyone can have fun at Universal Studios Singapore (USS), young or old. Themed sections of the park cater to all interests, and some rides even offer better assistance in transferring wheelchair users from chair to ride.
Check out our HappyWheels Lightweight Ergonomic Pushchair, which has adjustable armrests and slightly curved backrest so users can sit comfortably for longer durations.
Known as Singapore's version of the 'London Eye', the Singapore Flyer offers magnificent views of the city from up high, especially during sunset. At 165m, it is one of the world’s largest Giant Observation Wheels as well as one of Asia’s biggest tourist attractions.
Check out our HappyWheels Travel Chair Portable Wheelchair, that is suitable for short trips like this, and is small enough to move through crowded spaces.
