A Himalayan kingdom known for its monasteries, fortresses, dramatic landscapes, archery, and Gross National Happiness philosophy.

Tips from the community

Also known as "The Kingdom of Happiness", Bhutan is perhaps the most innocent and pure place on earth. Are you familiar with the statistic Gross National Happiness (GNH)? Bhutan puts GNH as their most important metric. Take a closer look and it's easy to see why this place ranks high on many bucket lists. The kingdom is located high in the Himalayas with majestic architecture overlooking beautiful landscapes and there is a limit on daily tourist numbers and spending which keeps everyone honest. Dreamy. Why it's on my Bucket List: Bhutan is clearly a unique destination. What draws me to it is how humble it appears to be. I want to go there with very little in my bag, no plans, and no expectations. I just want to literally be there and absorb the vibe.
