We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way! After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.
Tibet receives more visitors during Lunar New Year holiday
Tibet saw a 9 percent year-on-year growth in the number of tourists during the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday, according to the local tourism authority Tuesday.
Tourist arrivals from home and abroad totaled 91,450 during the week-long holiday running from Jan. 22 to 28, reaping a tourism revenue of more than 70 million yuan (11 million US dollars), up 19 percent year-on-year, figures released by the Tourism Bureau of Tibet Autonomous Region show.
Winter is usually a tourist off-season for China's remote southwest Tibet autonomous region, known as the "Roof of the World."
Local authorities have launched winter tourism promotions over recent years in major inland cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hangzhou, and offered flight ticket discounts as well as major cuts in other service charges for tourists who visit Tibet in winter.
