Welcome to Bhutan

While most societies and cultures have allowed new influences and 'changing times' to filter everyday life, Bhutan can amaze you with its originality. The unassuming, direct in your face and yet polite Bhutanese can floor anyone with their humility and simple way of life. Perhaps it is the only peaceful country which does not want 'too much' tourism and imposes a government imposed surcharge to travel to the country and where the official policy is Gross National Happiness before Gross National Product. It is then no surprise that one may not see a lot of development as compared to the rest of the world, but happy faces, helping hands, amazing heritage, great local customs and old beliefs mesmerize you no end. Who ever goes there comes back with a phrase – " there is something in the air there"……need we say more!
