Feb.2,2018--Steep discounts on hotels, air tickets and fees for scenic spot admissions will be offered to travelers visiting Tibet over the next three months, a news release by the government of the Tibet autonomous region said on Thursday.
The preferential policies for tourists echo the initiative of "winter tours in Tibet-enjoy the world's third pole"-launched by local authorities at a news conference.
From Feb 1 to April 30, the government-sponsored initiative includes seven areas covering visitor transportation and accommodation. It is also an important addition to the region's overall planning for tourism development.
A-class tourist attractions in the region including the Potala Palace will open to visitors for free during that time; prices of three-star hotels and above will drop by 50 percent compared with the year earlier; and vehicles for rent will also be 50 percent off from the peak season.
