    Actully, I'm more interested in going for the Silk Road as compared to Tibet.
    Do let me know the details on the timing as
    I'm working and studying at the same time, need to see
    whether the trip can fit in my schedule.

    I'd heard quite a bit about the Silk Road and am interested in doing that route too. Is there a train tour along the Silk Road?

    ok guys, I will update you detail at a later time after CNY. The silk road tour will be on around May-June time, via bus go all the way to the very northwest part of China, Xin Jiang. It's a culture + adventure trip. Prepare your money and read some HISTORY from now on!!!

    Hi,

    If I'm not mistaken, Tibet as a tourist destination is only good from May to October. It would be too cold and some of the roads are block by snow at other times.

    Cheers,

    You probably have to travel by train between different cities along the silk road.

    The train from Beijing to Urumqi is 3 days. But I don't think you will get to do much during the 3 days.

    erm.. actually, you won't be able to visit the Dalai Lama in Tibet. He's in exile.

    You can probably track His Holiness's whereabouts here : http://www.dalailama.com/html/teach2002.html

    My friend has agreed to lend me his photo album, which is nicely layed out with records and documention about the trip.

    He is an avid backpacker, will get him to give up some tips or join us if we really go.

    If you watch channel U, you will hear his voice in the promo etc.

    Sorry guy won't be bringing the photo albums (Tibet) as it comes in 4 big volumes and I don't want to lug it around at the party.

    We can do it at another time if there is still interest, can invite him over to share some of his experience.
