Take Care When Choosing a Tibet Travel Agency
Travelers are suggested to choose a Tibet travel agency that supports the kinds of Tibet tour they are interested in. If travelers are interested in doing trekking or mountain biking, for example, they will want to find an agency that has experience guiding travelers on these kinds of trekking tours. Travelers looking to focus on Tibetan culture will want to make sure that their itinerary includes lots of visits to monasteries and temples along with opportunities to see every day Tibetan life. In any case, travelers will want to use a travel agency that offers good customer service and is responsive to their needs.
Plan Ahead to Avoid Money and Banking Issues
As a rule of thumb, travelers should plan on using cash for all transactions. While many travel agencies can process tour related transactions through PayPal or a bank wire, local shops and restaurants typically only accept cash. There are a variety of major banks, such as Bank of China, that will accept foreign ATM cards; travelers need to be sure to alert their bank of foreign transactions before traveling to Tibet.
This depends on the time of year and nature of your Tibet tour. While summer days can be warm, nighttime temperatures plunge in some areas. Clothes that can be layered are the best way to go, especially if trekking or mountain biking. Trekkers will want to wear well-broken hiking shoes, while those on a sightseeing tour will be best off with comfortable walking shoes. Given Tibet’s altitude, it experiences much more intense sunlight and drier air than most places; sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat, along with lip balm is a must! Aside from this, travelers are advised to prepare the counter medications, and personal hygiene items like hand sanitizer and toilet paper.
How to choose a travel agency, how to avoid money and banking issues, and what to pack are among the most common Tibet travel questions and concerns!
