Tourism to Tibet Continues to Grow

The number of tourists traveling to southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region has increased in the first four months of 2014, as the region continues to grow as a world-class tourism destination. More than 830,000 tourists visited Tibet from January through April, an increase of 23.4 percent from the previous year.

With breathtaking nature, culture and attractions, it’s not surprising the Tibet has seen strong growth in the number of visitors recently. Cycling is a popular way to tour the region and take in the stunning natural scenery, and temples and architecture such as the famous Potala Palace continue to be a draw. Tibetan Buddhism and history, the hospitality of the local people, and the unique culture are additional aspects that make this destination so alluring.

The summer and early fall make up peak season in Tibet, with many tourists visiting for events such as the Lhasa Shoton Festival and Damxung Horse Racing Festival. Tibet received more than 12 million tourists last year and is hoping to reach 15 million this year.
