Wanna Meet The Dalai Lama?
Vol: 1 Num: 3    Summer 2006

Internet has made planning for getaways and booking travel packages easier. So the travel agents have to keep coming up with novel concepts to stay competitive. One of the hottest trends in travel is the “insider experience” so says Wall Street Journal. Any travel agent can book you a regular tour of traditional places but only a select few will promise an exclusive Royal Dinner at the City Palace with the Maharaja of Jaipur or a personal audience with His Holiness Dalai Lama at his residence in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh. The Journal says that to get inside the City Palace of Jaipur including a tour of museum with princess and a chance to meet the Maharaja will set you back by $3,000. Whereas, an 8-day trip including an audience with the XIV Dalai Lama will cost you $1,498. On the other hand you could meet His Holiness for free if you use the Office of Tibet in New York to schedule an audience.
