The first batch of 100 tour guides from 23 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities have arrived in Lhasa, capital of southwest China's Tibet Autonomous Region to help boost the local tourism industry.

The tour guides will stay in Tibet for six months, and 73 of them will work in English and nine in Japanese, while the remaining 18 will tutor in German, French, Italian, Korean, Russian and Cantonese.

Before they left for Tibet, the tour guides attended a short training course to learn more about Tibet, such as the climate and the culture, said sources from the National Tourism Administration in Beijing.

Zhanor, deputy director of the Tibet Regional Tourism Bureau, said the group would help solve the shortage of tour guides in the remote region and inject vitality into development of tourism in Tibet. Chinese Journal Discusses Implication of Death Sentences to Tibetans
