I am currently in Thailand and am heading up to Laos, i would like to cross into China and then into Tibet.

Has anyone taken this route?? What is the best way?? I have heard about the fast train; does anyone know about this? Where it runs from etc...?

Also ive heard that you need a permit to go to Tibet, how do i obtain one?

I look forward to hearing from you

Don't know about Laos - China, but as far as Tibet permits go you can get them from lots of travel agents in Southwest China.
