Bhutan is a landlocked
kingdom, located North of India and South of China. Bhutan is also considered
the last Shangrila. Bhutan has till now protected itself from commercialisation
and ills of capitalism and therefore has been a source of mystic and charm for
guests all over the world.
Bhutan is certainly
very pure when it comes to flora, fauna, rivers and forests. There is very
little in terms of pollution and poverty. Bhutan may be considered a little
backward when compared with western world in terms of communication systems. TV
and Internet came through in 1999.
Though tourism in
Bhutan is still restricted, Bhutan today is visited for a variety of purposes.
Some visit just to get a feel of the old world charm and traditions. Others
visit for a bit of adventure and fishing. With advent of Luxury
Hotels in Paro and Thimpu, its also an excellent flight getaway even though
the flight connectivity is relatively poor with only Druk Air flying into
Bhutan with limited flights.
