Tourists Welcome in Tibet Again

China reopened Tibet to tourism after not allowing foreigners into the country for three months. The Chinese government closed Tibet to tourism after violent anti-China protests and riots took place in March. China's state media said the region is now "safe" and reopened the boarders to visitors. Foreign journalists are still not welcome and have a hard time entering the country.

Regardless of where you stand on the Tibet vs. China issue, the reopening the country is a good thing for the world and Tibetan citizens. People should be able to see the wonders the country offers and be able to experience its culture.
