10 Tips for Tibet Travel Beginners

Lhasa, Tibet (PRWEB) June 14, 2014

In recent years, Tibet has attracted more and more new visitors with its increasing accessibility. But many travelers have no idea how to prepare a trip to this unique destination with high altitude and harsh environment. Tibet Travel Org, the top online Tibet tour operator, shares some practical advice with first-time visitors to Tibet.

1. Seek advice from a doctor before going to Tibet of you have heart issues.

A thorough physical examination is necessary before going to Tibet, which has an average elevation of over 4,000 meters. Generally, people who have problems like anemia, hypertension, heart issues or other illnesses in the lungs, liver or kidney are not advised to travel to Tibet. Travelers can also prepare some medicine according to their doctor’s advice.

2. Enjoy a train ride on Qinghai-Tibet Railway at least once.

Qinghai Tibet Railway is world-wide known not only because it is the highest railway in the world, but also because it is a man-made world wonder and an engineering miracle. Many world-class challenges were solved during its construction, like fragile ecosystem, lack of oxygen and permafrost. Moreover, the scenery along the route is breathtaking. Those who travel to Tibet for the first time are highly recommended to take a train to Lhasa from Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, etc.

3. Choose a comfortable level hotel in Tibet.

Travelers usually need to have a good rest to acclimatize to the high altitude of Tibet. A hotel with good facilities and services will make them comfortable. In addition, the temperature at night often drops rapidly to below zero in Tibet, even in summer. Cheap hostels or guesthouses do not offer heating or air conditioning. Thus, it is best to stay in a good hotel.

Boycott Rush Limbaugh Sponsors Nationwide

The furor over Rush Limbaugh's slurs against private citizen Sandra Fluke has waned, but two groups continue to successfully keep the pressure on sponsors of the hate and lie filled rants of Limbaugh.
First, there's the Stop Rush Project. They are tracking sponsors of Rush and mobilizing volunteers to educate those sponsors about the hate and vitriol they are helping to put on Our Public Airwaves. 
Find them at .
And you can "Join the Fight to Flush Rush Limbaugh" on Facebook.  This is a great real time way to share information and mobilize.

How to Boycott Local Sponsors of Rush Limbaugh

Start by looking at the following clock.  (Click on it to enlarge.)  The green sections represent the minutes within the hour that belong to your local affiliate.

Now listen to the Rush Limbaugh show (it's hard, I know, but you only have to listen to the ads!)   Any commercial you hear in those time frames are from a business inside your own area.  Make a list of local advertisers;  post them on Facebook if you can and tell people to call and write them.

Then contact the businesses politely by mail and give them 48 hours to discontinue their advertising.  If they do not, get a group together and do one or all of the following:  1) Have many people call the businesses on the phone;  say you'll pull your business from them if they continue to support Rush 2) Do a letter writing campaign and deluge them with letters  2) conduct a campaign against them on Twitter and Facebook, 4) Stage a protest outside their businesses.  Be sure to invite your local TV stations and newspapers! 

Boycott Sponsors


What if a radio talker didn't like your politics, but instead of debating you, he just put your personal phone number out over the air so people could call and harass you?  Even threaten your life? 

That's exactly what Clear Channel "Conservative" talkers JOHN AND KEN did to California Dream Activist Jorge-Mario Cabrera.  He's received hundreds of hateful calls and death threats - all because some shock jocks are trying to jack up their ratings.

How is that in any way serving the public interest
?  Let us be clearm this is not protected speech under the first amendment;  this is akin to shouting "Fire" in a crowded theater.  And for all their apologies, John and Ken say they will give out private numbers... again.

So.  Watch the video and BOYCOTT SPONSORS . click here________________________________________________________________________

For Reference, one of the most potent ways of getting TV and Radio stations' attention is to boycott sponsors of offensive programs. Sometimes, just calling and complaining to sponsors is enough to get them to stop advertising on certain programs.  Sometimes a full boycott is necessary.

Here are some groups which have mounted effective campaigns against sponsors.   Learn from them!
Keep us informed of any media boycotts at , and we will help publicize your efforts.
