Greeting from Italy!


We had a safe trip back home and, once jet-lag was gone, everything is back to normal.

The travel has been a fantastic, unique experience I will never forget. Thanks for setting everything so well, so precisely, so perfectly! Everything was really great, from the hotels to the guides. So...thank you! The only thing you couldn't really do anything on was the weather.  Maybe next time you can "book" also some sunny weather for us, ok? ^_^

That was my pleasure to meet you in Chengdu. I promise next time I'll come to China I'll be able to read the book you gave me ^_^


Here Autumn has come, it's quite cold and i miss pandas very much...


Many thanks for your email, hope to hear from you soon.

How To Get ThereThe transportation in Tibet has changed and been improved a lot especially during the past three decades. Now Tibet can be accessible by plane, train and by bus. The most fast and convenient way is getting Lhasa, Tibet by air. Lhasa's Gonggar Airport has flight links other major cities on the Chinese mainland such as Beijing, Xi'an, Chengdu, Kunming, Guangzhou, Chongqing, Shanghai, and Kathmandu in Nepal. Among all the cities, Chengdu is the most important hub which has the most flights to Lhasa on a daily basis. Most travelers choose Chengdu as their gateway to Lhasa, Tibet. Traveling to Tibet by overland trips is getting popular for these who have a longer and flexible travel plan. There are five highways stretching into Tibet from the Chinese Mainland and Nepal, namely, Sichuan -- Tibet Highway, Yunnan -- Tibet Highway, Qinghai -- Tibet Highway, Xinjiang -- Tibet Highway, and the Sino-Nepal Friendship Highway from Lhasa via the border town Zhangmu/Dram to Kathmandu,Nepal.
