Wang Songping, head of the Tibet Tourism Development Committee said that Yangtze River Delta cities including Shanghai have been a major source of tourists for Tibet.

 

 

Over 5 million tourists from the Yangtze River Delta region visited Tibet every year on average according to data from China’s major telecom operators.

 

 

The figure is projected to reach 7 million in 2018.
