Locals been there since birth...

Where ever you go it is so important to use local people to preserve local culture and also locals been there since birth so they know the place from the beginning . If you go to Chengdu must use some one from Sichuan to taste the real sichuan food so same here. Please help locals to preserve local culture....

I wish the Tibet tour guides stopped treating TA like their personal blog. Please just answer questions.

@JPD - I don't think that I would ever select a guide who could not understand the rules and ethos of TA.

I really appreciated Jean and Mike and this is exactly right. We can not divert anybody for self-promotional sites and we only wish to share spirit and answer questions and help more and more people get well informed. Thanks again, and only in this way people can grow and learn and not fight with each other and then the whole world will become peaceful and harmoniously.

I understand that business must be slow these days in Tibet but the locals have to stop starting new threads to give unsolicited information for the sole purpose of increasing their profile here.

Tonyctrip started this now everybody feels that they will be disadvantaged if they don't do the same.

This is a general problem that I will be reporting to TA.
