There is a group of people who are attracted by leisurely and comfortable lifestyle in Lhasa, capital city of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR) during their visit to Tibet and later chose to settle down there.
They are called the Tibet dream pursuers, considered a major component of Lhasa's sub-cultural phenomenon.
Different from one another in social experience, education background and mode of thinking, all of those migrants to Lhasa are common in pursuit of a spiritual world and allured by unique urban civilization of the plateau of Tibet, as well as by its capital of Lhasa.
Tibet dream pursuers seek legendary life experience in Lhasa
They hold such a philosophy that life is a journey with an unknown destination; what they care about is the natural view along the way and the mood at that time; dreams lying afar drive them to continue exploring further.
Compared with their fathers, they are a bit rebellious against social conventions and traditions and they lack the sense of responsibility for families and society. They care more about their living conditions and the feeling of their life. They long for a legend of their roam, referring to the freedom, ideal and love.
According to Chinese writer Yu Qian, these pursuers mainly include the following groups those tired of fast-paced metropolitan life under great pressure, those hurt by love failures and trying to seek comfort in a sacred place like Lhasa, and freelancing artists who are fascinated by Tibet's characteristic culture and want to seek creative inspiration from the region's landscape, religion, history and folklores, as well as the travel fans who have both time and money to gather together for sightseeing and exploration in Tibet.
A happiness index survey shows that Lhasa ranks first in 31 Chinese capital cities and municipalities directly under the Central Government in terms of the milk of human kindness, opportunity to make money and personal development in recent three years.
Experts note that the index level relies on whether the changes in urban development can be perceived more easily. Lhasa undoubtedly satisfies those pursuers because it is qualified in these factors.
