The six-days-trip were described as "amazing" by some of the reporters.

"I had prepared water, biscuits, chocolates when I started this trip, for I assumed that the trip would be difficult," said Christine Huang from CTI Television Incorporation.

"But I was amazed by what I saw in Tibet. The region was modern. We even got wireless services," Huang said.

Huang said she interviewed some Tibetans who run a hotel and was amazed by their high income.

"They could earn 70,000 to 80,000 yuan (10,248 to 11,713 U.S. dollars) a year. I never thought their income would be this high," Huang said.
