How to travel to Tibet from Singapore?

Singapore is renowned for its cleanliness and is one of the cleanest rich countries globally. Tibet is a popular travel destination for Singaporeans due to their appreciation for nature and spirituality.

1. 30-Day China Visa-free for Singapore citizens.

We've got some excellent news for all Singapore Passport holders planning to travel to Tibet! Starting from early 2024, Singapore Travelers will be able to enjoy a 30-day free visa in China, including the travel days in the Tibet Autonomous Region!

For Singaporean travelers, it is worth noting that most popular Tibet travel destinations are less than a month in duration. This presents an opportunity to spend more time exploring other Chinese cities like Chengdu and Kunming, which serve as transit points to Lhasa. This is particularly great news for us.

2. The Best Ways to Travel to Tibet from Singapore.

If traveling from Singapore to Lhasa, Tibet, the most recommended route is through Chengdu and Kunming. Previous travelers from Singapore suggest taking this route.

Two flights operate daily from Singapore to Chengdu. One of them is Sichuan Airlines with plate number 3U3910, which departs from Singapore at 17:00 and reaches Chengdu at 21:50. The other one is China Air, which departs from Singapore at 16:00 and reaches Chengdu at 20:25. The duration of the flight from Singapore to Chengdu is approximately 5 hours. The cost of the flight is around 350 USD Dollars. We can help you get discounted flight tickets.

Chengdu to Lhasa takes 2 hours and 10 minutes, while the flight from Kunming to Lhasa takes 2 hours and 40 minutes.

3. The time in Singapore and China.

The time zone used in Mainland China, including the Tibet Autonomous Region, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, is China Standard Time (UTC+8). This time zone is also the same as the time used in Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, the Philippines, Western Australia, and Central Indonesia.

Since Singapore citizens will have a 30-day free visa in China, we also recommend taking a train from Xining. From Chengdu, take a flight to Xining; from Xining, take a 22-hour train to Lhasa, Tibet.

4. Previous Travelers from Singapore.

We have enjoyed organizing tours for numerous individuals from Singapore at Tibet Travelers. We are pleased to announce that we have received 5-star reviews on Trip Advisor from past Singaporean travelers.

We recommend Mount Kailash and Mount Everest as the top travel destinations for Singaporean travelers. For those seeking spiritual experience, Mount Kailash is considered the center of the world and offers a 52km trek around the sacred mountain over three days.

Mount Everest, the highest mountain in the world, is a dream come true for many travelers who aspire to reach its base camp. If you are interested in learning more about Mount Everest.

We recommend a few travel itineraries for travelers. The first Tibet travel journey is a 10-day Tibet travel that begins in Lhasa and culminates at Mount Everest base camp and Namtso Lake.

The second Tibet trip we recommend is a 17-day Tibet travel journey from Lhasa that takes you to Mount Kailash, where you will trek for three days over 52km at an altitude of 5000 meters. During this tour, you will also visit the Guge Kingdoms and Mount Everest base camp.
