Traveling to Tibet is a fantastic experience waiting to happen, but with the vast number of things to do in such a wonderful country, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Use the apps below to help pull off your Tibetan vacation without a hitch.
In addition to housing the tallest mountain range in the world, and claiming stunning landscapes, Tibet has a rich history based on spirituality, religion, people, and food. With the extraordinarily complex and vast history buried in Tibet, it can be easy to get confused or get overwhelmed by the sheer amount of historical sites and temples. So, while you are planning on traveling to Tibet, download a few apps that can help you learn about Tibetan history. There are several different apps to look for, the first being an ebook reader. Ebook readers are incredibly convenient as they have access to millions of books, including thousands about Tibet. Other apps that are great to help you learn the history of Tibet are specific guide apps. A lot of tour companies offer apps that can help guide you through Tibet's history, as well as the culture of Tibet. Learning about Tibet won't just help you be smarter, but can help make sure you take the right tours and help you spend less time at the tourism bureau.
You will undoubtedly be able to find English speaking people in the main cities of Tibet, but if you are planning on exploring some of the more remote parts of the country, you will probably want a translator app to help you communicate with local people. If you plan your route with a travel agency before getting into the country, that's great. However, even though your chances of getting lost are significantly less than your free-roaming acquaintances, you will probably want to be able to communicate with local people at some point in your trip. During your Tibetan holiday, whether you are en route to Mt. Everest or you taking a 10-day tour of the country, there will be a point where you no longer have cell service, so finding a translator app that works offline is highly recommended. By having a decent translator app installed, you can feel more confident as you set out to have the adventure of a lifetime.
What good is going on a trip if you can't remember anything about it? Now that you are all prepared to explore the world with your passport, visas, and travel apps, you want to make sure you can at least remember some of your trips a few years later. A journal app is a perfect solution. There are hundreds of choices for journal apps, so play around with them until you find one that fits your needs. I like a journal app that works offline but syncs to the cloud as soon as I have service. The Cloud syncing feature is excellent for when you make it back completely unscathed, but unfortunately, the same can't be said for your phone. A journal app is also the perfect excuse for a bit of alone time away from your traveling companions if you need a bit of a break.
