For some Bhutan inspiration

Here are some excerpts by other Bhutan travellers:

“Like many people, Bhutan has been a source of fascination and a desired travel destination for me. In 2018, I was lucky to have the chance to visit this Kingdom for a week. Much has been written about the Kingdom, its beautiful landscapes and inspiring landmarks/monuments. For me, what’s striking about Bhutan was its authenticity. The citizens of Bhutan had an aspiration to live their culture while modernising.” — Teo Puay Kim, Singapore

“The calm place allowed me to reevaluate my life. The feeling was so unique. The trek was so different from treks in other countries. I would probably say that the Snowman Trek was the best hiking therapy I’ve experienced. It was a trip of a lifetime.”— Chun Ka Fai Andrew, Hong Kong

“Bhutan teaches that living can actually be experienced differently, slowly. In the mornings or late afternoons, you’ll notice Bhutanese people walking along the road — to school, to work, and perhaps even on a pilgrimage. Time feels stretchable in Bhutan — everything moves at a slower speed, and nothing is ever predictable.

Yet, its people appear to be at peace and even happy, radiating what seems to be a genuine sense of joy. Children are taught in school to not do harm to others. Killing and hunting are illegal. Bhutanese people are known to think about death daily, and they measure happiness using a different scale.” — Kristine Li, Singapore

“The most memorable experience is when (we visited) a local family who built their own hot spring bath at the back of their house and filled it with hot stones from the mountain. We were then treated to a delicious meal after. The Bhutanese people we met along the way were all so friendly and kind.” — Angeline Teo, Singapore

“My band TABULA was the 1st Singaporean band to be invited to perform in Bhutan in 2012. The boys and I had a warm welcome from the Bhutanese and had a wonderful time touring around Bhutan. From performing for DrukAir year-end party, to a sold-out gig to Mojo Park in a charity fundraising for Wangde Dzong, to Drukair Golf Tournament. An amazing experience in Bhutan indeed.” — Kelvin Y.J Wong, Singapore
