One of the main reasons for cvoming to this region is to go to Tibet, in particular Lhasa. Where I’m currently staying, at the Traffic Hotel Chengdu, has a couple of tour agencies located within it’s walls, there is one right out the front of the building and also one inside next to the reception.
The big billboard out the front was advertising Tibet Tours from 1000CNY (Yuan) which is incredibly cheap if it includes everything, but I doubt it, I’ve learnt not to believe any sign or advertisement I see in China, theres no such thing as false advertising laws in China!
It didnt matter anyway, as for a reason which no one knew, Tibet was closed to foreigners for the month of March. The best response I could get from any travel agent was to keep inquiring, but the news theyre getting is that it should be re-opened next month…too late for me this time….
I’ll have to come back to do my Tibet trip..
