Otherwise you will take the cheap and convenient airline shuttle bus (RMB 30 per person) to downtown Lhasa bus stop (nearby east gate of Potala palace), and then you will be taken to your hotel. After checking in hotel, you’d better rest well for high altitude acclimatization. Travel tips: you are suggested to prepare some altitude medicine such as "Diamox" before arrival, or buy some necessary high altitude medicine after arrival to help get well acclimatized. However if you feel quite good, you may walk little bit in Barkhor Streets area or Potala Square to have first impression of Lhasa.
