Most tourists want to return to Tibet


Published on Mar 8, 2012

More than 70% of travelers visiting Tibet say they would return to the restive region, a new survey has found. According to the study conducted by Tibet’s state run tourism administration, 98% of tourists said they were happy with Tibet’s environment and services, while 73% are planning a second trip. Last year, almost 8.7 million tourists visited Tibet, up 27% year-on-year, according to official figures. This is expected to rise to 15 million visitors by 2015. The vast majority of tourists however, are domestic Chinese visitors, with the region occasionally being closed to international visitors during periods of internal unrest.
