Overview

Known for its breathtaking natural beauty and unique culture, Thimphu is the administrative capital and largest city of the scenic kingdom of Bhutan. Being the most modern city of Bhutan with numerous restaurants, cafes, nightclubs and shopping centres, Thimphu has retained its cultural identity. The presence of spirituality in the air blends well with the Buddhist traditions, and fills the atmosphere with serenity. The cultural focus remains on maintaining traditions in every aspect of life here. Thimphu is credited as the only capital city in the world that does not use traffic light system. Bhutan has a lot of religious sites and places of heritage to visit such as the Buddha Dordenma Statue, Tashichho Dzong monastery and fortress, the National Memorial Chorten, National Folk Heritage Museum, National Textile Museum, Changangkha Lhakhang monastery, Motithang Takin Preserve and a host of other sites. Most of the tourism revolves around the holy sites of Buddhism, both modern and ancient ones. However, nature related tours, treks, hikes and trail walking are very popular here as well due to the natural beauty of the surrounding areas of Thimpu and the region in general.
