More trains to Lhasa in time for summer demand

    Travel agents in Shanghai have hailed the increase in the frequency of direct trains between Shanghai and Lhasa as demand for tours to the Tibet Autonomous Region increases.

    From today, there will be a train departing at 8 pm daily for Lhasa from Shanghai Railway Station, arriving two days later. Previously, there was one train every two days. The most expensive berth costs around 1,400 yuan ($209), and the cheapest seat 406 yuan ($60).

    Summer is the best season for visiting Tibet, according to an agent surnamed Liu from Shanghai Travel Agency, and the newly-added trains could bring a 20 to 30 percent hike in the number of Tibet package tours his agency sells.

    'Most of our customers choose to take the train to Tibet not only because it's cheaper than flying, but also as a way to gradually adapt to the higher altitude,' Liu said. 'The scenery along the route is also very beautiful.'
