Entertainment in Lhasa

Generally speaking, Lhasa is the first choice in Tibet where most people are willing to spend long time loitering in bars. If you travel alone at your own expenses, it is a good place for you to pick up new friends in the same camp and then charter a vehicle to travel together. Besides, you can get to know the latest traveling information throughout China. Also, you may chatter away unrestrainedly, singing at full volume, and then, when having drunk too much, go back to hotel to enjoy your sleep with your feet pointed outward. How wonderful the days are!

As for those who have visited Tibet for many times, there is no need to go to other places, while enjoying the sunshine on the Barkhor Street and loitering at bars become their main subject when dawdling away in Lhasa. The most popular bars are as follows:


Ganglamdo means snowdrop in Tibetan. It is a complex place with more music records and paintings than other bars. However, the price here is low. And, the Tibetan beef cakes are delicious with RMB¥8 for a piece.

Although the business here is usually dull, the bosses are absolutely talkative. If you want to take the hike routes from Gaden Monastery to Samye Monastery or from Tsupu Monastery to Yanbajan, you can consult here or rent tent and feather sleeping bag that you need on the way.


Majiami, means unmarried beautiful girl in Tibetan, is the most famous and comfortable bar in Tibet.
