An accessibility study was carried out to collect data, taking photos and videos from different amenities, particularly at tourist facilities and famous sightseeing spots in Hong Kong. The scope of the study includes the following venues:

  • Churches
  • Computer Centres
  • Convention and Exhibition Centres
  • Food Courts
  • Hotels
  • Markets
  • Museums
  • Scenic Spots
  • Shopping Malls
  • Temples
  • Theme Parks

The field survey was conducted by a number of people with disabilities with the support of many volunteers. Each investigator has accepted the training of this access guide project. They started with their own experience and conducted a site inspection with the consideration from the perspective of the user. 

The contents of the survey were determined in accordance with the basic criteria of the Hong Kong Buildings Department's Design Manual Barrier Free Access 2008. The facilities records include entrances, berths, passages, lifts, toilets for the disabled, rooms, etc.  All data had been analyzed to provide accurate information to readers and passengers.
