Accessible tourism is an emerging market full of potential and opportunities. This thesis aims to analyse the development trend of the accessible tourism market and explore the opportunities and challenges it brings. Through comprehensive literature research and field research, we find that the accessible tourism market is gaining attention, promoting the development of related industries and providing more travelling options for people with disabilities. However, there are still some problems in the market that need to be solved, such as improvements in facility construction and service quality. Therefore, the government, enterprises and society should join hands to promote the sustainable development of the accessible tourism market.
