St Regis Lhasa
Why we like it
- One of Lhasa's most luxurious hotels
- Several spa and fitness options perfect for relaxing
- Rooms and suites afford beautiful views
Whilst Lhasa's sights are fairly spread out, the hotel has a good central location, and is within walking distance from Potala Palace and Sera Monastery.
Our three guides made this holiday so memorable. Nishiuma Tomoyo in Tokyo, Emiko Ashida (tea ceremony and kimono dressing) and Satomi Miura in Kyoto were fantastic. Their english, knowledge, friendliness and helpfulness could not be faulted. We are so grateful to them all.

Best time to be there
The severe climatic conditions and great discrepancy in daily and seasonal temperatures are due mainly to the high altitude. Mid-spring, summer and early autumn get rather warm. Early spring gets cold, especially in the mornings and at night. A similar climatic situation applies to the late autumn and winter months.

Tibet feels like a real-life Shangri-La, a time-warp realm hid-den in the Himalaya and swirled by incense and an air of mystery. In ten days you can explore its palaces, monaster-ies and backstreets, as well as adding quick visits to two of China’s greatest cities.
