With the coming operation of Qinghai-Tibet Railway on this July 1, travel to Tibet becomes hot all over China.
Comparing with flying to Tibet, entering Tibet by train will be much cheaper and easier for tourists to conquer the altitude stress. Furthermore, there will be stops at the main sight spots along Qinghai-Tibet Railway to ensure the tourists enjoy the scenery on their way to Tibet in about three days.
Sources from some travel agency, the Tibet line by train is hot among tourists at present just after their recommending, two months before the final launching of Qinghai-Tibet Railway.
Gao Jian, general manager of China Comfort Travel Service Shandong Branch introduced that going to Tibet by train is more convenient for travellers especially for those elders. And the price will be fixed around RMB 4,000 (about 500 US dollars), cheaper than choosing the plane to enter Tibet. It will be an opportunity as well as a new competition for all the travel agencies.
