Bhutan tour package from Bangkok is the best way to explore Bhutan. The Land of Thundering Dragon with simple and smiling people is not less than the charm of the earth. Isolated from the rest of the world till mid-20th century, this small landlocked country has remained intact. The nation is now connected to the rest of the world as a part of globalization. It is also aware about the simultaneously occurring impacts of globalization on both nature and the cultural heritages. Thus, with the tourism policy of “High Value, Low Impact”, Bhutan has found the perfect balance between development and culture. Bhutan tour package takes you to The Last Shangrila. Widely followed Buddhism is the main religion of Bhutan which affects the political system as well. Most of the festivals celebrated here; almost all are dedicated to Guru Rinpoche who is believed to have introduced Buddhism in Bhutan. The centre of attraction of these festivals is monks dancing in colorful attires and masks. Thus, Bhutan is also called the Country of Dancing Monks. A place where development is measured by the curve of smile in the people’s smiles rather than the notes in their pockets, Bhutan’s initiation for Gross National Happiness (GNH) is very appreciable. The people are actually happy with the government and love their King and Queen whereas there’s no one who has not been spellbound with the cute little prince.
