    So "The route which previously took up to two days by car will take only 4-5 hours" is bad thing? Maybe to some Western tourists it is, being a spoiler to their mood of enjoying " the primitiveness of the Tibetans". But to the actual people who live there, it is a life-saver, a road to the outside world, to a better life, and to modernity. "The horror of Chinese government design" is exactly that, building roads, railroads, airports, schools, universities, hospitals, libraries, post-offices, and yes, banks, supermarkets, malls, and bookshops, for a people and a region that has never seen them before. Maybe it is a horror to the Western tourists who'd rather see the Tibetans remain illiterate, uneducated, without even the most basic health care, fetching dirty water from the wells, and living in mud houses with no plumbing. But to the real people who receive these benefits, it is not a horror but a bless. So next time, when you want to tour some backward corner of world to hunt for exotics and feel good about yourself based on the natives' (off course, the ones that you have not killed off yet) misery, you should first try digging a cave in the backyard of your suburban house, and living without electricity or supermarket food, or your beloved smart phones and ipads, or your imported camping gear for as long as you can endure, and then leave for the "attractions" if your conscience still allows.
