People with disabilities shall be able to enjoy travelling on equal basis with others, with access to transportation, recreational, sporting and tourism venues and activities. The map shows the distribution of attractions in Hong Kong alongside their accessibility for the disabled.

As depicted by the bar charts, attractions in Hong Kong are clustered in the urban areas in West Kowloon and on Hong Kong Island. Most of these are accessible to wheelchair users, but the accessibility of museums or temples in the New Territories is generally lower. Accessible sightseeing spots allow tourists with mobility problem to travel independently. They contribute to the recognition of Hong Kong as an accessible metropolis.

Data for the map were derived from the Visitors' Guide to Accessible Facilities in Hong Kong 2010, published by the Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation.
