3 Join in the festive Guozhuang Dance with locals around a bonfire.
Guozhuang dance rivals Samba and Tango in terms of rhythm, melody and pace. It is easy to study and perform. A good ice-breaker. After several rounds of passionately Guozhang Dance, chance is that you will feel home away from home.

Day 5 Potala Palace---Sera Monastery---Jokhang Monastery---Barkhor Street


Visit Potala Palace, Tibet’s White House and the Louvre Museum combined. Potala Palace is an architectural gem embracing Tibetan, Han Chinese and foreign influences.

It is a maze of chambers filled with golden statues, pagodas containing the remains of late Dalai Lamas and corridors painted with brilliant frescoes. The most important political, economic and religious rituals and festivals all take place here.

Sera Monastery beckons for the heated debate from monks.

Jokhang Temple is the most ancient temple across Tibet. It is home to the statue of Sakyamuni when he was 12 years old.

Jokhang Temple, together with Potala Palace, physically and spiritually forms the heart of Tibet.

After an intense cultural excursion to Tibet’s top three temples, we go to Barkhor Street jam packed with restaurants and shops. Barkhor Street is an open air museum of Tibetan culture, folklore, arts, traditions and handicrafts. Strolling along its shops is a refreshing way to learn the multi-dimensional Tibetan culture at a leisure pace.
