Tibetans and Foreign Tourists say Traditional Tibetan Society is Disappearing - 2003-09-02

Tibetan stringer Gedun Rinchen reported that Chinese policy is transforming the traditional Tibetan society; this is particularly obvious in Lhasa, Tibet’s capital. It is almost like one of the cities in China. Concrete buildings have replaced the old Tibetan traditional houses and the Chinese runs most of the businesses. In the center of Lhasa, old Tibet is disappearing, replaced by modern buildings, roads and traffic and prostitution.
