If it is your first time to visit Hong Kong, you may want to spend more time there to completely immerse yourself in this fascinating city. Usually we recommend a stay of only one or two days to just hit the main highlights, such as Victoria Peak, Repulse Bay, Aberdeen Fishing Village and the Stanley Market before moving on to Mainland China.From Hong Kong, you can choose from many gateway cities in Mainland China before moving on to Tibet.We recommend 4 or 5 days to explore around Lhasa to allow enough time to visit the Potala Palace, the sacred monasteries and nearby holy lakes. If you have more time, you can extend your visit to Tibet with a trip to Shigatse (add 2 days), Mount Everest (add 4 days), Namtso Lake (add 1 day), Nyingchi (add 3 days) as some examples.
There is neither direct flight nor train from Hong Kong to Tibet. Travelers have to transfer from Hong Kong to China Mainland to catch a flight or train to Tibet. In order to get acclimatized to the high altitude in Tibet better, it is suggested to stay in China Mainland for one day and fly or take a train to Tibet the next day. If you want flight only itinerary, it is suggested to fly to Beijing, Chengdu, Chongqing or Shanghai first, and then take another flight to Lhasa. If you want a train trip, Xining is the best place to board on a train to Lhasa, because a Xining-Lhasa train ride takes only 22 hours and allows you to see the beautiful sceneries and lovely wild animals along the railway.
Enjoying a reputation of the Oriental Pearl, Hong Kong is absolutely worth an exploration. If you are traveling with your kids, the Disneyland and Ocean Park are the best destinations. If you are hunting for luxury brands, the Causeway Bay and Central are must-visit places. If you want to explore the old Hong Kong, Mong Kok, Tin Shui Wai and Island District are the right places for you.
Besides, there are also various museums, Hiking paths and bars in Hong Kong. Almost every factor of an international metropolis can be found in Hong Kong. However, please note that you need to take a good rest in order to better acclimatize the high altitude in Tibet.
Yes, it takes around 1 hour to go to Macau from Hong Kong by bus or ferry. Before the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge was built in 2018, most tourists take a ferry to go to Macau from Hong Kong. More and more tourists take a bus through the 55-kilometer long bridge to Macau now. The sea view is excellent during the bus trip.
Popular tourist attractions in Macau include Ruins of St. Paul's, Macau Tower and Macau Museum. It is suggested to spend more time at the Ruins of St. Paul’s, where you can admire exquisite relief sculpture.
You may want to visit some casinos in Macau, it is important to avoid getting addicted.
Wir konnten wunderbare Tage auf dem Dach der Welt verbringen - und wenn es heute erneut die Möglichkeit geben würde - Ja ich würde diese Reise noch einmal unternehmen. Dennoch sind es große Anstrengungen und die Touren im Auto sind lang. 2 Tage dauert die Autotour zum BaseCamp - Achtung - bei der Anreise überquert man bereits die ersten 3 Pässe mit über 5000m - daher sollte eine gesundheitliche Abwägung oberste Priorität haben. Tolle Organisation mit AMY - ich kann es nur jeden empfehlen, da Sie wirklich Sehr gut und schnell auf alle Anfragen, Anregungen und Änderungen eingeht. Ein Tip nach Möglichkeit mit der Tourguidin Kelsan Droma reisen - Auch Sie versteht es wunderbar Ihr Land näher zu bringen und lebt so positiv.
The tour guide and diver are pretty kind and zealous! And all the stories the guide told are very attractive as well. Hope next time visiting there, they can entertain us again.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the service. Our travel consultant Monica is very responsive and helpful. She responded to our questions promptly and willing to accommodate my request. Tibet tour is very nice and memorable. We got well along with other travel members and became very good friends. The only thing I do mind is the condition of the public toilets, hard to describe, you should see them by yourself.
My best friend and I were looking forward to taking the train ride from Xining to Lhasa. Unfortunately, until the day we landed in Chengdu, our tour operator (different from Asia Odyssey) was unable to purchase the tickets for us. I contacted Danny after Googling and he was extremely helpful. Within 3 hours of contact, he had our train tickets. They were delivered to our hotel the next day before we left for Xining, and until we boarded the train, he was in contact with us to ensure that everything went smoothly. Thanks to Danny, we got to experience this once in a lifetime journey! Highly recommended for excellent and fast response! Thanks, Danny!
Last week we (4 of us) traveled to Tibet one way by train and return by flight.
Upon arrival to Lhasa a tour guide Mr. Chimpel waited for us in the train station and took us to the hotel.
A first class hotel big rooms very clean and best restaurants.
The guide made a plan for the 3 days tour including all relevant sites of Lhasa and out of town.
He's very knowledgeable and I feel like being in a class.
At the end we (all the four of us) were very grateful to Amy who arrange all and our travel agency Asia Odyssey Travel.
I will definitely recommend your office to any friend who will want to visit Tibet
I cannot praise the Asia Odyssey Travel operation highly enough, from the applying of permit to the expertise of our guide. Everything was well arranged. Our guide, Puktso, was both personable and knowledgable, and yet was able to keep things moving. I will definitely go back to Tibet again!
