Tibetan tour becomes hot in Xi'an, capital of the Shaanxi province for the coming May Day holiday.
"The climax for travelling to Tibet is in May and at the end of April, many tourists also choose to tour in Tibet," said Zhu Baiqing, a travel agency manager in Xi'an.
Last May, fewer tourists in Xi'an wanted to travel to Tibet. But with the operation of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway on July 1, 2006, over 100 locals in Xi'an have recruited for a Tibetan tour in the coming May Day holiday.
Travel agencies remind that tourists had better book tickets in advance for the Potala Palace as there is a ticket-limit.
