It was a great experience in Tibet, and I was sick the first day I arrived. I contacted the travel agency and changed the travel arrangements in time, although I could not visit many scenic spots for physical reasons. I had a great time in Lhasa. I will choose this company for my next Tibet journey. And a big thanks to Ms. Cici, my travel counselor at AOT, who is responsible and caring for me.
