This small country is renowned for its Gross National Happiness philosophy, where the people's happiness is paramount to economic growth. Visitors can soak up the country's vibrant atmosphere by visiting places like the capital Thimphu or the lovely valleys of Punakha and Paro.
Bhutan has a distinct culinary culture that is worth exploring. Visitors can try dishes like ema datshi (a spicy cheese dish), momos (steamed dumplings), and red rice. These dishes are best enjoyed with local drinks such as suja (butter tea) or ara (a type of distilled liquor).
The country's rich Buddhist heritage is reflected in its iconic landmarks such as the cliffside Taktshang Monastery (also known as Tiger's Nest), the Paro Dzong (Fortress), and the Kyichu Lhakhang Temple. Bhutan is also home to many pristine natural destinations, including the Phobjikha Valley, where one can witness the endangered Black-necked Crane.
