In the latest tourism trend, travelers don traditional local clothing to create vivid memories, Zhang Yangfei reports.
 
When tourists visit Lhasa, Tibet autonomous region, they can do more than check off the iconic tourist spots on their list. They can immerse themselves in the traditional clothing culture and take pictures in front of the famed Potala Palace.
 
That's what Shen Yeqiu, a 29-year-old media worker from Beijing, did during his first visit to Lhasa last year. When he searched for things to do in the city using Dianping, a travel advisory platform featuring consumer reviews, a host of photography studios popped up. He picked one at random.
 
Upon placing the order, he was offered a choice of Tibetan costumes. A makeup artist dressed him up and a photographer led him to the best spot near the Potala Palace to snap a picture. After a little photo tweaking was done on a computer, Shen said he was really satisfied with the result.
