Tibet & China Travel Tips from Wendy

Can't find the answers you want? Email or call me at +86-15982202830, and I will get back to you immediately with full passion and consideration.

  1. When is the best time for Tibet tour?

    It is suitable for travel to Tibet from April to early November, and the best time is August and September. But if you only stay in Lhasa, you can go there any time of the year. Get real time weather report in different places of Tibet.

  2. When is the best time for Everest tour?

    Early May and early October are the best time to visit Mt. Everest. Due to the clear weather, you have great chance to see Mt. Everest's true face (if you are lucky). From December to February, you'd better not to go to this area because it is too cold - except you are real Great Adventure People.

  3. Can I travel with children?

    Tibet may not be an ideal destination for young Children. The climate and generally harsher conditions in Tibet may not be ideal for young children. The sights and attractions are not those which children like to visit and facilities will be very primitive. If you do decide to bring your young child to Tibet please ensure that you bring all your child's daily needs with you.

  4. Are the Tibetan dogs are dangerous?

    Tibetan dogs are dangerous. Do not approach any stray or wild dogs you see and carry a stick if you plan to wander off on your own or at any time after dark.

  5. What kind of Tibet travel documents I need?

    Besides a valid passport and a valid Chinese visa, you need two different kinds of permits for traveling in Tibet: the entry permit (TTB permit) and the Aliens' travel permit (if you want to visit the unopened area in Tibet). Click here to read more about "Tibet visa" and how to get them.

    Hello Wendy,

    Sorry it has taken me so long to respond. The trip that you and your team arranged for us was fantastic.

    As my travel consultant, you were always very polite and patient to answer my questions. I was very satisfied with the tour you arranged for me, it’s excellent! One suggestion to improve your service is that, for the accommodation perhaps you could suggest to people that there are 5 star hotels of course, but there are also more local hotels closer to the city with a better feeling for the local culture.

    Regards,

    Hi Wendy,

    Thank you for a wonderful tour. We are home safely and carry many fond memories. What an amazing country China is. I have written you an evaluation. Faye  will likely do her own evaluation and send it to you separately.

    I will look at the trip advisor link on the weekend when I have more time, as I have not put an evaluation on trip advisor before.

    I have many photos, but I have selected some that do not identify people with out their permission.

    Best wishes

    Hi Wendy,

    The tour was good on the boat and in Tibet, and we are very happy for your services.

    Now we have a new request.

    With the group (I do not know how many people) on October 17 we'll go from Lijiang to Chengdu: I think by train but seems that there are not any direct train.

    Pls can you give me an idea for the trip?

    Best regards.

    Hi Wendy,

    All well from Hong Kong - The group has just finished the Hong Kong tour (another great guide apparently - I did not go - have been here previously).

    So THANK YOU so much for all you (& Tibet Discovery) did re the set up, planning and background work -

    It has been a memorable trip for all of us and overall we are extremely satisfied customers.

    All the guides you supplied for the group individual tours were excellent - 

    “DJ” (Duang Juong) in Tibet (and I note here Tibet was the real reason for us doing the trip - and it exceeded all expectations)

    - DJ had excellent English and was full of information and happy to discuss what the Chinese may consider “sensitive” - he did this really well (from a Chinese govt perspective) and we came away with a more positive attitude to China’s presence in Tibet - yes we know Tibet is an autonomous region of China - and it seems if the Chinese government continues to support and allow the region and its people to develop as we observed we are sure any historical differences may pass with time.

    Any way, hotels ( & food) in Tibet were very good and totally acceptable - EXCEPT "Rongbuk guesthouse" - although we noted all accommodation and food here were sub-standard (surprised the Chinese government has not corrected this already - but understand there are altitude & isolation constraints ).

    A note for you here - we had done a lot of altitude preparation in Nepal - but still struggled with the conditions - all tourists coming from Katmandu to Lhasa need to be very, very aware of this and need to be well prepared.

    “Walden” - in Xi’an was outstanding!!!!! A highly engaging and a very intelligent young man - we wish him well in his guiding career - He is very talented (make sure you use his abilities).

    “Helen” (Jueng Wai) - in Shanghai again fully engaging with good English an excellent guide - Like Walden made our tour exceptional.

    “Faye" in Yichang was also good with very good English and happy to answer all our questions.

    Similarly “David” in Chongqing and “Evelyn” in Guilin showed their love of their cities and with very good English did everything to show us the best of their home towns.

    We loved all the train travel - it is awesome infrastructure which will serve China well and you can be very proud of the system - pity we can not do similar in Australia. But you need to inform tourists the transfers can not get you close to the trains (security tighter than airports) - so you need to carry bags (we didn’t have “rolling bags” or use porters.

    So again Thank you  - we will and are very happy to recommend Tibet Discovery (and you Wendy) to any one interested travelling in Tibet and China.

    A quick post script to our trip - We went to the Hong Kong light & sound show last night - We all agreed the boat cruise watching the lights in Shanghai - was MUCH BETTER -

     

    1st place Shanghai

    2nd place Hong Kong

     

    although Guilin’s Light show was the very BEST

    Wishing you well

    Hi Wenday,

    Both the guide and driver are very polite and patient. We appreciated their kind help throughout the 8 days of our tour in Tibet. They are very professional and friendly.

    Thanks!

    Hi Wendy,

    Apologies for missing your earlier email. We got home a few days ago after spending some time in Sri Lanka after Nepal.

    The tour was absolutely wonderful. Our guide - Ghana - was brilliant. He was very informative and very helpful. We actually got engaged while trekking the Dhampus Trek and Ghana helped Joel plan the proposal. It was very sweet and we are very happy :)

    Happy for you to put this one the website: Thank you so much Tibet Discovery Tours for arranging such an unforgettable week for us in Nepal. Wendy was very accommodating and flexible with organising our holiday after our plans changed a few times. Our guide on the ground, Ghana, was also brilliant- informative, funny and very helpful. We got engaged while hiking the Dhampus Trek, so Nepal and this trip will always hold a special place in our hearts. Thank you!

    Wendy was very patient with us as we went back and forth a few times to arrange our perfect trip. Nothing was too much of an ask.

    We are very satisfied with the tour you arranged for us. Our driver suggested a few additional things to do (zip lining in Pokhara and a sunrise tour in Pokhara) which we did, because we are very active, however adding these into the itinerary may have made the week too busy for most people.

    Thanks again for all your help Wendy. We really had a wonderful time :) 

    Kind Regards,

    Lee

    Hi Wendy,

    We have reached safely in Singapore and thank you again for all the arrangements.

    Despite some of the challenges faced due to the political situation and road works, we had a good experience and were well taken care of. We also appreciate the adequate rations and clean equipment issued to us. These are some of the feedback we have shared, in writing, to our guide.

    Hope you had a good holiday yourself! Take care.

    Regards,

    Rahayu

    Hi Wendy,

    We both got home safe and sound and I've already resumed work on Monday 10 April.

    Unfortunately, we have both experienced extreme altitude sickness. Gilbert had to go to hospital and had stayed in hotel room for at least two and a half day. He made an effort to visit the Jokhang temple before we left Tibet.

    As for me, I thought I was going to die on the mountain. My blood pressure shot to 165/107.....,the doctor on site was really worried. It did not stop me from visiting the monasteries or the Potala. All I can suggest for your future guests is that you make them aware of the danger of altitude sickness and that your future clients document themselves about the risks. Apart from that issue, my husband and I have been over the moon to have met with Lucia in Xian, she has been the utmost guide and friend throughout our stay in Xian. She is an outstanding asset to your company. In Beijing, Jason had been very accommodating. He contributed his utmost to make our experience the very best. In Tibet, we felt that without our guide, we might have not recovered the quickest way. I recommend our guide as the most helpful and friendly Tibetan person I have ever met.

    Love always. Wendy. Cheers

    Wendy,

    Feedbacks are as follows

    1. The travel consultant Wendy was very reliable and fast answering my question thru email. Wendy was very knowledgeable and I was glad I had her as my travel consultant. 

    2. The Tibet tour was the best times in my life. My daughter and I experienced everything that we hoped for.

    Mt. Everest and Mt. Kailash were the most beautiful places in the world we have visited. he tour guides , especially Soman and Ltoshe were the best. They are so experienced in everything about Tibet and they took special care for all of us. I am so grateful for them.

    Everything about the tour was glorious. Thank you for the wonderful experience and I will recommend Tibet Discoveries to everyone who wants to experience the best and challenging time of their life. Please find some of my pictures which I treasure. Thank you for the wonderful experience in Tibet!!!

    Everything was perfect as expected. I would not change a thing about my trip.

    Regards,

    Hi Wendy,

    Thank you so much for your patience. We are now back and rested. 

    I will be very happy to give you the feedback you have asked for. Please use the photos and comments on your website. 

    1. We have had a great experience with the travel consultants from China discovery. We started off working with Olivia, who was always very patient with all my million queries. She was quick to revert to my mails and very helpful in giving my itinerary the shape I was looking for. When she went on leave, Wendy came on board to see us through the final leg of finalizing our tour and executing it. She managed to do a fabulous job with it. Wendy would revert to all my questions (and I had a lot of them) with speed, flexibility and clarity. Very impressive team of travel consultants. 

    2. The tour was all that we had imagined it would be. Everything worked like clockwork. The guides were always where they were supposed to be and were all knowledgable with a good command over English. Special mention to Lucia in Xi'an who made us feel very comfortable and was an excellent guide. 

    The vehicles used all throughout the tour were clean and very comfortable. The drivers were professional and drove carefully. 

    The choice of restaurants for lunch were really good for the most part and the food was really tasty. We got to experience Chinese food from different parts of the country through these lunches. We had only one not so good experience, which was at the restaurant at the Bund in Shanghai. Though the location was really good, the restaurant was hot (AC didn't seem to work) and the food was average. 

    Overall, the tour was great. And what really touched us was the thoughtfulness of the travel company.  My daughter's 12th birthday started with a beautiful bouquet of flowers given to her by the guide on behalf of the company. My son got a panda bear toy for his 6th birthday, which was such a lovely gesture. We really appreciated it and it will serve as a special reminder of our trip to China. 

    3. There is not much that I can suggest to improve the service or the execution of the tour. It was near to perfect. 

    I would like to complement the travel team at China Discovery for our memorable trip to China. We will cherish all our days spent there for the rest of our lives. And we will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family. 

    And next time we come to China, we will be using your services again. Thank you once again. 

    Am attaching some pics from our holiday. 

    Regards

    Hi Wendy,

    Apologies for not getting back to you sooner- reception has been patchy. I wanted to say thankyou so much for organising a fabulous trip and being so helpful and responsive! We had a great time! I've filled the questions out below- happy for you to publish them on your website. I'll have to email you photos when we get back.

    1. Wendy was extremely responsive in answering our queries and very patient with all of them!

    2. Ther tour was great. We felt that it showcased the highlights of Lhasa and was very informative. It also left us enough time to wander around and soak up the atmosphere. I would recommend the tour and tibet discovery to anyone visiting Tibet.

    3. No suggestions for improvement- great as it was!

    • Our consultunt was very fast in replying and very patient to all our questions.

    Dear Wendy,

    I am back to NYC and can't believe the trip is over. It was so wonderful, and my husband and I felt very sad leaving Tibet. Thank you so much for your help in organizing our trip and for introducing us to our guide and driver. They are delightful people, and it was very enjoyable to explore Tibet with their assistance and guidance.

    Please take care!

    Hello Wendy,

    Because of you guys, we had a wonderful time in Lhasa.
    Appreciate for all things what you've done for us.

    My feedback is below

    1.    Was your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?

    She was nice consultant. Answered to our questions quickly and clear. We want to say Thank her directly.
     
    2.    How was your tour? Are you satisfied with the tour we arranged for you ?

    It was very nice. Satisfied with your tour schedule, enough time to rest, flexible and knowledgeable guide, and so on. As you know traveling Lhasa is tough for foreigners like us, but you made it easy. We could trust you and there was no uneasiness on us.
     
    3.    Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?

    We wanted to feel more local/traditional Tibetan stuff, like going to suburb area and have some foods.
    Anyway, we really glad to join your tour, it was pleasure. That was one of my unforgettable memory. Thanks all. 謝謝!
     

    Hope you have a great day and life.

    Hi Wendy,

    my answers in red below, feel free to use it and the photo for the website.
     
    1.    Was your travel consultant of our company fast enough to answer your E-mail and patient enough to answer your questions?
    Yes
     
    2.    How was your tour? Are you satisfied with the tour we arranged for you ?
    Satisfied with the tour but could do with one less monastery visit and perhaps a visit of attraction just out of Lhasa
     
    3.    Do you have any suggestions on improving our services?
    Overall satisfied, except that the vehicle that was ferrying us on day 3 and 4 had a faulty child lock, we cannot open the door from inside and that could be very dangerous in an accident.

    Would recommend and use this tour agent again for my next tibet visit in future :)
     
    Thanks and Regards,
