Hangzhou Asian Para Games Village opens, Oct. 16, 2023.


The opening ceremony of the Hangzhou Asian Para Games Village and the welcoming ceremony for the Chinese delegation were held here on Monday.

Following around one week of transformation, the Asian Games Village has been turned into the Asian Para Games Village.

Covering an area of 325,000 square meters, the Village has been converted from the Media Village of Hangzhou Asian Games and will provide 3,446 rooms for the delegations of the Asian Para Games.

Humanistic concern is prevalent in the Village, as tactile paving can access all the facilities and signs are marked in Braille. Over 30 shuttle buses provide around-the-clock transportation services.

As there is a height difference of one to two centimeters inside and outside the rooms, rubber ramps are applied for wheelchair access, and protective strips are placed at the wall corners. Beds can be adjusted to different heights.

Hangzhou Asian Para Games will be held from October 22 to 28. China has sent 439 athletes to compete in 397 events of 22 sports.
