Since I’m planning a trip to Tibet, I want to know if there are any special etiquette and taboos I should pay attention to when traveling in Tibet? Thanks~

Re RE:Jim : I learnt some taboos from my guide before I traveled to Tibet. The following are considered taboos, hope these can does some help to you.
Smoking, drinking alcohol or making unnecessary noise in a monastery.
Touching, walking over or sitting on any religious texts, objects or prayer flags in a monastery.
Causing anything to be killed in a monastery.
Stepping on the threshold when entering a Tibetan house.
Spitting before someone.
Littering in the fire.
Intrusive photography of a monastery when he is performing religious ceremony.

Re RE:Jim : Yes, there are some special etiquette and taboos in Tibet. Before you travel to Tibet, you can get a general idea for what you should do and what you cannot do in Tibet.
Here is some etiquette you can refer to.
Presenting Hada is considered a traditional practice for respect and hospitality in Tibet, and will be appreciated by your host.
Always add a "La" after one's name to show your respect.
If you are planning to pay a visit to the monastery, always walk clockwise around the religious shrines, stupas, Mani stones and prayer wheels. But if you are visiting a Bon monastery, you should walk counterclockwise.
Offering some money or butter fuel is regarded an etiquette when visiting a monastery.
