The Sunday New York Times (January 8, 2012) included Lhasa in Tibet and Moganshan in Hangzhou City in the six-page feature in recent travel section: "The 45 Places to Go in 2012".

Let’s have a look what New York Times said about these two items: Lhasa, Tibet (Number 9) and Moganshan, Hangzhou City (Number 18).

9. Lhasa, Tibet

18. Moganshan, China

Wealthy foreigners took up residence on the mountain first, building stone villas and tennis courts.
