Tips for Tibet
    -If you're going to travel to Tibet, you're better to consult your doctor for an appropriate advice whether your body (blood pressure and heart condition) is suitable for Tibet's high altitude.

    -We suggest you take your medical record with you in case that you need it in the event of an emergency, and please also take with you your doctor's name, address and phone number, emergency contact name and phone number, and your insurance company's name, address and phone number.

    -For those travelers who suffered from heart disease, high blood pressure, asthma and other serious disease, we do not suggest them visit Tibet.

    -Casual clothing and comfortable walking shoes are recommended for tour to Tibet. But make sure you take warm clothing as it is cold during the nights and early morning even in summer days.

    -Hotels in Lhasa are different from those ones in big cities like Beijing, Shanghai, Xian etc. although they are star-rated similarly. Most hotel staff are local Tibetans, so you could not expect a good English skill of them even in a rated 4 star or 5 star hotel. And the English speaking skill of the staffs or hotel facilities in remote areas like Gyantse, Shigatse etc. would be lower, so please enjoy the beautiful scenery by reducing hotel expectations.
