Compared with other cities of China, the nightlife in Lhasa seems more low-key and simple to tourists and travelers in Lhasa. Nightlife activities in Lhasa are often limited to see Tibetan performances, sit around a table and chat with friend or stroll around a night market. A few nightclubs are mainly frequented by locals.
Tianhai Night Market is the most famous night market for its coverall. Snacks gathers together from all parts of China, besides the Tibetan Restaurant, including Sinkiang Noodle with Sauce, Lanzhou Ramen, Sichuan Hotpot, Mutton Da Pai Dang, and so on, fruit and handicraft lining in the street. When the curtain of night is approaching, the street is crowded and illuminated. The Crazy Yak Troupe is worthwhile to watch a Tibetan singing and dancing for your first visit to Lhasa. It entertains at a couple of different venue in Lhasa, including the Crazy Yak Restaurant and the Shangri La Restaurant. The show stats with short performance of various aspects of Tibetan Opera, carrying on with a drinking song which everyone is encouraged to take part in, and culminates in a sketch symbolizing how nomads subhue and tame wild yaks into domestic animals. A pantomime yak comes on stage and appears ot be wild before being restrained and he then walks round kissing members of the audience. The show finishes with the nomed riding out on the back of the yak. A very amusing and entertaining evening indeed.Bars in Lhasa are often attractive for their unique exotic flavors. It is a popular place for you to meet friends and share your travel stories or sit quietly alone relaxing, reading books or listening to music.
