Although less well known to travelers than Barkhor Street, the Tianhai Night Market is the place to wander through if you're looking for things on the cheap. Located on the city's west side on Minzu Road, the stalls that line this market specialize in curios and other things you'd expect to find in Tibet (anyone for a rug?), but separate themselves through the diverse selection of Chinese snacks and cuisines, from Sichuan hotpot to traditional Tibetan delicacies. The best part? This area is open all night.
