Dining & Lodging

The representative traditional Tibetan food includes roast mutton and beef, buttered tea, and liquor made of highland barley. Many tourists in Tibet want to have a taste of the local cuisine, but most of them choose the more popular Sichuan dish . Western-style food is available in hotels catering to foreign tourists. In the "Yak Cafe" in Lhasa Hotel you can enjoy a typical western-style meal as well as photos of foreign film stars hung on the wall.

Tibet has already opened 12 star-rated hotels in Lhasa, Xigaze, Gyangtse, Zhangmu, Tingri, Tsetang, NyinChi, and Nakchu. Besides, there are a great number of non-star-rated hotels and hostels. However, many tourists find that living in a Tibetan-style tent can be more exciting.

Tibet has opened three ports of entry in Lhasa, Zhangmu, and Purang to serve overseas tourists. The autonomous region's tourism bureau has set up offices in Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Xi'an, Hong Kong and Kathmandu to handle consultancy and entry formalities for overseas tourists.
