"When I was leading a tour group, I didn't have much confidence and my background narrations were not detailed, or rather quite fragmentary. Sometimes I even became impatient," she said.
"I've gained a lot confidence from the training course here and when I get back to work, I will tell about the unique features of the sites to every tourist with great patience."
The attendees of the training course include both officials or management staff from Tibet's tourism departments at various levels. Although they range in age from 40 to 20, "they are all the mainstay of Tibet's tour business," as Liao Qiyong, Pasang's head teacher, put it.
Nyingchi's tourism suffered an all-time low after the Lhasa riots that happened on March 14, 2008.
But in the following year, thanks to its rich resources, Nyingchi's tourism became booming again. According to statistics from the Tourism Bureau, by the end of October, Nyingchi had received more than one million tourist person times. It is expected to see a total of 1.2 million tourists by the year end.
Guangdong Province, a major financial and technology helper of the prefecture, is the main source of a largest number of tourists.
Zhang Liwen, organizer of the training course and a leading official of Nyingchi Tourism Bureau, said, with development in the prefecture's tourism, the professional skills and qualifications of people in the business appear lagged behind.
The training course, on the one hand, aims to improve their professional skills to enhance the development of the tourism, said Zhang, who himself is an aid-Tibet official from Guangdong.
