Hello Ng Lim Booi,

Thanks for your question. You can book train ticket online without Tibet Travel Permit. Only the valid passport number is required. But the Tibet Travel Permit is required when you collecting train ticket at train stations. If you need, feel free to contact us to help you apply the permit and book train tickets.

Hope my answer will be helpful. Have a good day!

Hi Penny,

Thanks for your message. It is our pleasure to serve for you. I am sorry to let you know that we don’t have such a Qigong learning tour. As you know, Qigong is very hard to understand and harder to learn. But if you want, you can take some Kung Fu classes for Tai Chi, Wing Chun in Chengdu, Beijing and Shnaghai. You can even go to learn some Shaolin Kung Fu skills in Shaolin Temple in Henan Province, get some inspirations here http://www.chinadiscovery.com/dengfeng-tours.html Anyway, what our best-selling tour packages are our Tibet vacation deals. If you need, tell us more about your plan so that we can customize a trip for you in Tibet also in China.
