Mexican tourist: comfortable to travel in Tibet
08:43, April 10, 2009  

Sergio Montano, a Mexican travel lover felt satisfied with his one-day visit in Lhasa. He said: "Traveling in Tibet is so impressive and comfortable."

Sergio Montano and his wife flew from Chengdu to Lhasa to start their four-day Tibet tour on April 6. They visited the Potala Palace, Jokhang Temple, Barkor Street, Drepung Monastery, Norbu Lingka and Sera Monastery on April 6 and 7.

Sergio Montano said they had prepared about ten months for this Tibet tour. "Our friends admired us since we have the chance to visit such a mystical place rich in history and culture."

"When we visited the Potala Palace and Jokhang Temple, we saw so many pious pilgrims. At that moment, I felt Lhasa was a spiritual city with strong religious atmosphere. I also had a deeper understanding about religious culture after communicating with them."

"Besides, I was greatly impressed by the spicy Sichuan food which is similar to our Mexican food and the Tibetans' hospitality and friendliness."

Before Sergio Montano came to Tibet, he had some concerns about the personal safety. He said: "Now I don't think there are security problems in Lhasa with people living happily and tourism market in order."

Foreign tourists have begun entering Tibet on April 4 as the region lifted a month-long suspension. A German group of 11 tourists arrived in Lhasa Saturday and began its six-day visit in the region.

Before April 20, more than 500 foreign tourists traveling with more than 200 groups are expected to visit Tibet, said the Tibet Autonomous Regional Tourism Bureau.

The tourists are from the United States, Canada, France, Japan, Italy, Denmark and Australia- to name a few, according to the bureau.
