Why flys to Lhasa, takes train from Lhasa to Xian?


In their first queries, many clients asked us to buy train tickets from Beijing to Lhasa (48 hours on the train), the train tickets are more expensive than flights, and they are very difficult to get, even if we pay extra.    The train goes Beijing/Xian/Lhasa in every 48 hours, why don't you take train from Lhasa, get off the train at Xian, visit the famous terra cotta warriors?


You only need to stay 36 hours on the train, it leave Lhasa at 08h30, arrive Xian at 20h28 next day.  Frankly speaking, one night on the train is pretty enough.
