Days when I was in Lhasa

To me, Lhasa is one of the most purity places in the world. I was totally shock on my first sight of the blue sky of Lhasa.

I never see such a fascinating sky ever before. The sky of Lhasa is so blue and pure that making my heart purified.

Potala Palace is the most magnificent buildings in Lhasa. The building measures 400 meters east-west and 350 meters north-south, with sloping stone walls averaging 3 m. thick, and 5 m. (more than 16 ft) thick at the base, and with copper poured into the foundations to help proof it against earthquakes.

Lhasa is a amazing place. Many city men resigned their job and packed a simple bag to Lhasa. Some of them even spend a year or more in Lhasa.

Tourist resources in Lhasa are plenty. There are good hotels, tasty restaurants, travel agencies, Chinese department stores and supermarkets.

In some parts of the city, you may find no difference to other Chinese cities. But the Tibetan influence is still strong and evident, especially around the old quarters near Barkhor Street.

Lhasa, which means “Land of the Gods”, is the heart of Tibet. Over 1,300 years old, it sits in a valley right next to the Lhasa River. It is located at 3650 meters (12 000 feet) above sea level on the northern slopes of the Himalayas.

People love Lhasa because of its night. When the nightfall approaches, people, who you usually barely meet in the day, all come to the street.

The night of Potala

I find that the night of Potala is really lively. Tourists hang around the streets and square. They drink and chat. Artists play nice music and songs. It makes me feel less holy religion atmosphere, but more sense of leisure life.
