There are few places in the world where you can be so far removed from modern-day life. Bhutan is one of those places. A Bhutan Road Trip offers an opportunity to take a step back in time, explore new cultures, and see some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. Bhutan has long been known for its low population density and isolationist policies, but there are still many reasons why this country should be on your bucket list!
Since Bhutan opened up its borders to tourists in 1974 it has attracted visitors from all over the world with its famous Gross National Happiness Index (GNH). The Bhutanese people have developed their own unique culture that is unlike any other place in Asia. They believe that Bhutan is the Land of the Thunder Dragon, and only those who are truly at peace within themselves can visit without fear.
Bhutan’s isolationist policies have helped to maintain its rich cultural heritage, but today tourists are welcomed with open arms throughout this peaceful country. There has been a surge in tourism over recent years which means that visitors will find Bhutan’s infrastructure and facilities much improved.
