LHASA, May 23 (Kangba TV) -- Tibet has received a growing number of tourists since May. It is the general idea that the tickets to the Potala Palace in peak tourist season are difficult to get. 

There are two ways to buy tickets to the Potala Palace.  

Firstly, tourists can get the reservation tickets in the ticket reservation office one day in advance with identity cards. The reservation tickets are free and available from 9:30a.m. to 4:30p.m. now.The schedule will be changed to 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in peak season. 

Secondly, tourists can book tickets online seven days in advance. 

Real-name ticket purchasing system is applied in on-site and online ticket purchases to stop scalping tickets. 

One person can book four tickets at most at the same time with his or her identity card, and one identity card can only reserve one ticket in a week. 

If the reserved tickets were not collected in time, the identity cards used for reserving these tickets will be on the blacklist of ticketing system in the following week. 

Generally, tourists would not reserve tickets successively in a week. If someone books tickets repeatedly in a week, there is a big chance that he or she is the scalper.  

Once the tickets were deemed as the scalper’s by the ticketing system, these tickets  will be cancelled and the identity cards making the reservations will be included on the blacklist for good.
