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.

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

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.

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.

4. Singaporeans 2024 April 18th travel to Tibet

Four Singaporeans 2024 April 18th travel to Tibet. The group included Mrs. Soo, Mr. James, Mr. Kevin, and Miss Rozz Lee. The Tibet Travel journey began with an email from Mrs. Soo, who expressed her desire for a Tibet travel adventure that combined natural beauty with spiritual experiences and locals. Initially, I recommended a 10-day tour of Mount Everest and Namtso Lake.

Special thanks go to Mrs. Soo, who loves being with locals and nature and has immense positive energy, which I can feel while reading through her Emails. She suggested the eight-day Tibet travel itinerary, ending the Tibet tour at the Nepal border with a continued journey to Nepal and, from there, taking a flight back to Singapore. Therefore, we opted for an 8-day Tibet travel journey from Lhasa to Mount Everest base camp and the Nepal border.

Singaporean travelers are eligible for a 15-day free visa in China, which also includes travel duration in Tibet Autonomous Region. Therefore, we only needed travelers to provide us the passport scans to obtain the Tibet Travel Permit. It took us around a few weeks to obtain the permit, and we mailed it to two different destinations since three travelers were flying to Tibet from Kunming in Yunnan.

5. Miss. Rozz travel from Singapore to Tibet

Final Traveler Miss Rozz (Instagram) had a connecting flight from Singapore to Beijing, where she had a one-hour stopover before taking another flight to Chengdu. She needed to travel to Lhasa from Chengdu, but due to the short time duration in Beijing, her luggage was not delivered to Chengdu. As a result, Miss Rozz and I waited at Chengdu Airport Starbucks Cafe for around an hour for a coffee break to ensure that her luggage arrived in Lhasa on the same day.

Miss Rozz recommended not arranging a connecting flight with only one hour's duration, as it is too short for larger airports like Beijing. I appreciated her advice, and it will help us provide better service to future Singaporean travelers. Additionally, once we delivered the Tibet Travel Permit to Miss Rozz, she took another connecting flight to Lhasa from Chengdu.

Miss. Rozz, a tall model lady who enjoys silence and peace, loves to travel to Bhutan because of its lovely people and beautiful nature. She shared a great moment while in a forest in Bhutan, listening to traditional music. Her mind was so overjoyed that tears were streaming down her face, and it was a beautiful experience. Thank you for sharing it with me.

When we arrived in Chengdu, Miss Rozz's luggage was not delivered to Chengdu airport from Beijing. We were both worried about it, but while we were chatting, we talked about the situation. Fortunately, the staff at the Chengdu Airport goods office were very helpful.

The lady in charge kept calling both me and the Lhasa office to ensure that Miss Rozz's luggage would be delivered to the Lhasa St. Regis Hotel that evening. Finally, at around 8 pm, the luggage arrived at the St. Regis Hotel in Lhasa, and we were both very relieved and happy.
