How to travel from Malaysia to Tibet?

The first question about traveling to Tibet from Malaysia is about how to get a China visa. Since Passport scan and China visa are the 2 main documents required to issue the Tibet Travel Permit.

Finding a reliable Tibetan travel agency is very important, a travel agency that has respect for Muslim culture, especially halal foods, a travel agency that has respect for Hindu culture, especially vegetarian foods.

For Buddhists from Malaysia, Tibet Travelers would highly welcome you to travel to Tibet, which is the heart of Mahayana Buddhism.

Many Travelers traveling with Tibet Travelers are mostly Malaysian and Tibet Travelers' first group for 2016 was arranged for Malaysians, that is one of the reasons we are writing this article since we have a good connection with Malaysians. 

I still remember the friendly Muslim family group of Mother (Yasmin) with three children. Yasmin has gone beyond her trust and choose Tibet Travelers, it was our duty to take good care of her and her family. We have shown her the Halal food and also took her to visit the Mosque in Lhasa so she can ask for prayer so we have a good connection with Muslims from Malaysian.

Another occasion was Malaysian Hindu, Tibet Travelers has also made a good friend with Hindu Malaysian Siva. Who plans to travel to Tibet every year with Hindu pilgrims as a Tour Guide so Tibet Travelers is going to be the main travel agency for Hindu pilgrims from Malaysia. Siva was the friend who called Yasmin and told her about us so that is one of the main reasons Yasmin choose Tibet Travelers.

After arranging a tour for both Hindu friend Siva and Muslim friend Yasmin and son Adam. We are happy to share that they had a great time and they have rated us Excellent in trip advisor so Tibet Travelers is a trustable Tibetan local travel agency in Lhasa that cares for Malaysian travelers.
