In a move to draw more tourists to Tibet, China has started work on US$4.8-billion tourism project in Lhasa city.
A theme park, commercial district and residential area are scheduled to be completed two kilometres away from downtown Lhasa in three to five years. The project would create a “living museum” for Tibetan culture, notes Lhasa’s vice mayor, while relieving pressure on tourist attractions in Lhasa’s old city. – AFP
I suppose the world needs a living museum in Tibet. If no other reason than China is doing its damnedest to destroy the living culture of Tibet!
