This is a great place to watch the locals walking around and praying. There are hundreds of shops lined around and just a wonderful place to hang around. Choose one of the roof top cafes and bask in the glorious weather. It is very safe to walk around here because there are police stations at almost every corner.
We went to one of the local hospitals here to learn more about tibetan medicine. It is just near Lhasa Kitchen. We also got some meds/herbs such as the snow chrysanthemum, saffron and black fungus. We made sure to visit the one that is for locals and not one that has many foreigners. You can also buy tons of souvenirs in front of the hospital but make sure to haggle and haggle. You'll see a lot of stones, yak butter, cowboy hats, boots, relics etc. You can get the item at about 1/3-1/2 of the original price.
