Shanghai: Tibet Trip Cheaper in Winter
Adjust font size:

The price of a 10-day tour to Tibet from Shanghai, including Lhasa, Nyingchi, and Lulang, has dropped from 4980 yuan to 3880 yuan. At the same time, the price of a plane ticket from Shanghai to Lhasa has also dropped by about 50 percent. 


Luosang Caiwang, manager of Tibet Saikang Travel Service, said that "winter in Lhasa is not that cold and snowy weather is unusual. The only thing to take note of is the dramatic temperature drop at night. On the other hand, traveling in Tibet during the low season has many advantages: lower accommodation costs, low demand and prices for train tickets and tourist site admission tickets, etc." 


Xu Dinghai, manager of the Shanghai Railway Travel Service, said the price of his company's Tibet itinerary has dropped by 25 percent.


According to airline outlets, a Shanghai-Lhasa plane ticket now enjoys a 20 to 30 percent discount. With luck, a traveler could get a plane ticket for as low as 1200 yuan.
