This is a new apartment building in Tongren! We are local hosts with many years of living in Canada and Other countries! We love visitors and will give you a great idea of Tibetan life!
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment with all you will need!
On the road to rebkong we are walking distance from almost everything in town.
While a brief stay, my friend and I had an incredible time in Tongren... exploring, learning, and relaxing. Tamsin helped make Tongren our favorite stop in Amdo. He was a generous host, answering all of our questions about Tibetan culture, spending ample amounts of time with us, and treating us to the best momos in Tongren (hao chi!).His apartment is comfortable and spacious; much nicer than any hostel in the area. In summary, I definitely recommend others to stay here ... go!
Tamdin was welcoming. Room was perfect and very clean. Thanks Tamdin.
This was my first time using AirBnB, but I believe I found the best host ever. He does everything he can to make sure that you are comfortable, that you are getting everything you wanted out of your Tongren experience, and, besides, he is a very good singer. As for the apartment, it is within walking distance of the Rebgong Square and some good restaurants. Here I had more space, comfort, and freedom than anywhere else I have stayed in this area.
Tandim is a nice Guy, his apartment is very big and quiet. To visit the City centre of Tongren or the monastrys it is only a short walk from here. It wasn't very easy to find tandims place without internet or telephone but with support of some People im Tongren we managed it. There was no breakfast, but for that price it is totally ok. I'm sure when you spend more time with Tandim than us, you will get more tibetan experience.
Our stay in Rebkong was very great ! Tamdim was an excellent guest, very helpfull and a momo (tibetan dumplings) specialist. His appartment is well located and you can find beers in the fridge :) and coffee in the morning !
Even though I only stayed for a short time, Sham made a big impression as an incredible host. Besides being friendly and just great to chat with, he went out of his way to help us plan our time in Rebkong, even though he was sick! He organized a cab for us to hike outside town, recommended great restaurants, and went with us to help us hire a car back to Xining since we were a little nervous. Thank you for everything! I hope to come back :)
My friend Teresa and I had a very pleasant stay at Tamdin's Apartment! He is funny and has a great knowledge of Tibetan Culture. He offered us food (home-made momos, dinner with his friends), gave us the best advices where to go and what to do. He even drove us to an amazing mask dance ceremony. He was very concerned about our well-being and is a great host! Highly recommended (:
Tamdin is a really nice host. His place is clean and well-sorted. He has long living experience in overseas. He is easy-going and we get along very well. And the town is beautiful and quiet. It is a good option to avoid tourists crowds. He knows Tibetan culture very well and very hardworking. I did enjoy the pleasure time in his place.
