I don't understand why some people in the west keeps telling people that the Chinese government bans foreign tourists from visiting Tibet (by refusing visa applications). But many people I know directly and indirectly visited Tibet before and after the riot of March 14, 2008. It is true that Tibet tour was suspended after the riot, but the Chinese government resumed issuing visiting visas in June 2008.

The Tibet separatists groups and sympathizers in North America and Europe repeated the same lies once a while. T, Leonard, and Tenzin did just that in this forum. But if Tibet was closed to tourists and was under martial law, my friends and former colleagues wouldn't have seen Tibet themselves recently.

Now, some people say that Tibet will be closed again. Why the Chinese government does that? After March 14, 2008, it was closed, but Tibet was reopened promptly for visitors in a short time to earn tourist money which is vital to job creation and to the survival of businesses there.

Don't forgot that the Chinese government has invited senior British officials to visit Tibet early this month. If the Chinese government doesn't want any foreigner to see Tibet in reality, why should the Chinese government invited the British officials?

Foreigners who already have permits and visas to visit Tibet over the National holiday period can still do so. They are just not issuing any more at the moment. But then the issuance of all visas to China have been reported stopped/reduced for the national celebrations, not just Tibet.

I agree. The promenade outside the Nest and the Cube are a great place to visit particularly at night when they are lit up. Now a piece of modern Chinese culture and a credit to China.

Why are they seeking British certification? If you believe everything is fine, you don't need to go around convincing others...right?

Or do you feel a certificate from your white masters is necessary?

Anyway China can do whatever it wants in it's own country. China doesn't tell other countries how to run it's affairs. Why do you have to care what another country does? Do you have some plan to visit Tibet or something?

Don't you live in 50 years old? You live in Indian having no such great internet service like China. Did I tell u I watch olympic online? Many foreigners ordered tickets online in their own countries, then went to China during Olympics. You are really dumb, no wonder you live in slums knowing nothing about internet service. Not just that, I bought many things online from Taobao.. A lot of Chinese buy stuffs online too. Open your eyes, We live in modern society.

"Chinese enjoying rights" is an oxymoron, stupid.

Were you actually allowed to see the empty buildings from a safe distance?

Lucky serf!
