It's about a month away from the Spring Festival and the Losar, or Tibetan New Year. Farmers and herders in southwest China's Tibet are ready to take a break from work; everyone is busy preparing for the New Year and shopping. At the Lhasa Wholesale Market, shoppers and shopkeepers filled three floors of the market, where bustling sounds of bargaining could be heard.
The market has already prepared in advance for the double New Year holiday. At the market, the walls were repainted, all electrical wirings were inspected, and fire safety equipments are also found on each floor.
