Splendid Bhutan

 

Bhutan, the Land of the Thunder Dragon, is no ordinary place. This is a country where buying cigarettes is illegal, where the rice is red and where chillies arenít just a seasoning but the entire dish. Itís also a deeply Buddhist land, where men wear a tunic to work and where Gross National Happiness is deemed more important than Gross National Product.

 

Bhutan is straddling the ancient and modern world and these days youíll find monks transcribing ancient Buddhist texts into computers as traditionally dressed noblemen chat on their mobile phones. Besides the stunning natural scenery, the enduring image of the country for most visitors is the strong sense of culture and tradition that binds the kingdom and clearly distinguishes it from its larger neighbors.
