Since it opened in 2008, the controversial new train line to Tibet has become a popular way for tourists to enter the distant mountain region. Although the Chinese have hailed it as yet another great achievement for their country, it remains a difficult place for foreigners to secure entry permits to. So what is it like to be a tourist on the highest train in the world, and just how strong is the Chinese presence in Lhasa? Written by Anonymous

Completely one-sided viewpoint - Very anti-Chinese sentiment
17 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

I felt like I was being manipulated from start to finish, with biased reporting, selective interviewing, a cleverly selected soundtrack and frustrating cutting.

Hopefully this won't encourage any more extremist-influenced suicide fire bombers and fatal riots.

I have had an interest in this subject for many decades now, and saw this film at the Isle-of-White film festival, but unfortunately wasn't impressed, although some there were clearly enthralled by it. Perhaps carried away in the misinformed moment.

A magnificent piece of pro-Tibet propaganda, made by amateur holidaymakers.

Dear oh dear.
