    China is an enormous country. The world’s most populous nation is a case study in contradiction. Gleaming skyscrapers dot the Shanghai skyline while the garrison at Jiayuguan has guarded the country’s western approaches since the Ming Dynasty. Time seems frozen in Shangri-La, deep in remote Yunnan Province. Beijing’s modern architecture rises above centuries old, densely-packed hutongs. Everywhere you go you find a country constantly moving towards the future yet never managing to escape its past. In this short guide, we provide our recommendations to those places that captured our imagination. Places that stuck in our heart and minds long after we left. This is our insider’s travel guide to contemporary China.

    Reasons for Recommendation: Prominent Tibetan culture and close to the Jokhang Temple. Tangka Hotel, near Jokhang Temple Square, is only a step away from Jokhang Temple, and around a ten minute walk to the Potala Palace. The unique location makes getting around convenient. There are hand-painted Tangkas in the lobby and Tangka decorations in every floor and passageway, reflecting the richness of Tibetan culture. It is a four-story hotel with over 100 Tibetan-style guest rooms, 78 of which are fitted with oxygen making equipment, and the superior view rooms overlook the Potala Palace.

    Lhasa Travel Tips

    About Lhasa

    Lhasa, the capital city of China's Tibetan Autonomous Region, 3,650 meters above sea level, has more hours of sunlight per year than any other city, thus earning it the name "City of Sunlight". Both inside the city and on the outskirts of town there are many noble palaces and temples such as the Potala Palace, Sera Monastery, Drepung Monastery and Jokhang Temple. These historic sites are well worth going to. Wherever you look, you will see devout believers and pilgrims paying their respects. Chakpori Hill is a good place for beautiful photos of Potala Palace in the light of the early morning. At the beautiful tree-lined Zongjiao Lukang Park, you can see Potala Palace reflected in the water. On bustling Barkhor Street, you can purchase colorful, unique Tibetan souvenirs. There are many precious artifacts on display at the Tibet Museum. If you want to experience a quieter and more tranquil environment, you can go to Xianzu Island in the southern part of the city.
