After you?ve had your fill of Lhasa head to Samye Monastery. You can get there by bus/ferry/truck from Lhasa provided you pick up a permit in Shigatse (the only place where they will issue permits to individual travelers). There is often a PSB guy checking permits when you cross the river, I also heard of the PSB going door to door in the monastery guesthouse checking permits of people who trekked in from the north. Samye is set in a beautiful rural valley away from the Chinese built 'modern' buildings you see so much of in Lhasa.
