Lhasa, capital of Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, will build its first-ever tourist information office and service center by the end of 2011, a city official said yesterday.

The 15.7-million yuan ($2.2 million) project will be located at the railway station square in downtown Lhasa.

Travelers will be able to arrange accommodation, transportation and guide service from 10 to 20 travel agencies in the center, said Wang Ping, chief of Lhasa's tourism administration.

Travelers will be able to book agency services and bus tickets to tourist destinations by telephone or on the center's website, Wang said.
