There is no other place on Earth like Bhutan, the country of happiness. Local people are quite possibly the friendliest I’ve met – it’s incredible how they are always willing to help each other and anyone who might need a hand. I admire how much respect they have for their culture and traditions and it’s quite unbelievable that beautifully decorated traditional houses and people wearing traditional outfits on a daily basis are not a part of a movie, set but an actual country! My most striking memory of Bhutan was one of the festivals I was lucky to attend and making paper planes with the local kids at the home-stay.
Last year, I embarked on my first ever trip to the magical kingdom of Bhutan; a place like nowhere I have ever been in Asia before. I explored incredible winding valleys, and hiked to the famous hillside monastery, Tiger’s Nest. My favourite place throughout my whole trip was Punakha because of its crystal clear rivers and incredible Dzong!
Bhutan is a colourful country full of life and traditions. You will fly in from Nepal on the greatest scenic flight on earth, you will pass the big one, Mount Everest. This is a country that loves its festivals, the people are fun and scenery is incredible. I will never forget this royal kingdom especially the chanting of the monks in there beautiful monasteries.
