China to turn Tibet into world's top tourist destination: report
Phayul[Tuesday, May 18, 2010 12:02]

Dharamsala, May 18: Chinese communist authorities have reportedly drawn ambitious plans to turn Tibet into world's top tourist destination thereby amassing total tourism revenue to the tune of 20 billion yuan (2.9 billion dollars) in the next ten years, according to media reports.

According to the roadmap, by the end of 2020, the number of annual visits to Tibet should reach 20 million and tourism revenue should reach 20 billion Yuan, making Tibet a world class tourism destination, PTI reported, citing China's state media as saying.

Seven scenic areas including the Potala Palace ancient town area, Yarlung historic culture area, Mount Everest polar ecological area, Brahmaputra Grand Canyon scenic area, Kailash Mansarovar, Guge kingdom ruins, Qiangtang Grassland lake ecological area, and Shangri-La ecotourism area have been made the focus of the campaign.

Tibet will receive 6.5 million visits from China and other countries in 2010 alone among which 220,000 would be from inbound tourists, the report said.

Tibetan activists and Tibet observers have long warned that tourism and migration by Han Chinese could swamp Tibet's distinctive culture, with Tibetan people receiving less than their share of new jobs and income.
