Very nice, Deepak!! Some of mine from the 90's...

Bhutan limits the number of visitors each year to preserve and protect their culture and really works.

They can only wear their native dress, use only traditional building materials (including wooden nails!) are very reverent and hence have nearly no crime and the most polite children I've encountered in 25 years of travel. Very refreshing to not encounter beggars and touts at every step.

Children are very eager to speak English - they are taught from very early - with visitors. Very sweet!

When we were there they had little or no TV and zero internet. It has changed, but what doesn't? Now they allow climbers and kayakers and even have a few high-end lodges.

An amazing journey and experience!!!

All the best,

O
