That fairytale finally hits close to home, so to speak, as Shangri-La Hotel opens its newest accommodation in Lhasa, Tibet, over 3,650 meters above sea level. The hotel’s main entrance faces the enchanting Potala Palace and captures the stunning silhouettes of the Tibetan mountain range.

Even better is the fact that the world’s highest railway station takes just a ten-minute drive. You can otherwise stay in and enjoy the exotic local touches and pampering offers. Above all, Shangri-La Hotel, Lhasa (10 Norbulingka Road, Tibet, China; +86 891 655 8888; www.shangri-la.com) suits those who know the real meaning of privacy and decadence.
