If the allure of the exotic Far East results in a planned visit to Asia, there is then the decision on which destinations to select. Each one has its own special appeal. There are differences in language, history, culture, religions, cuisines and local scenery. The total mystery of Asia will not be experienced after just one visit and a glimpse of it will probably cause an unavoidable desire to return there.
Since there is so much to do and see in Asia, we are going to promote one destination every year. This way we can focus on all the attractions and must-do itineraries to fully immerse ourselves in our chosen destination. However, if you would like to visit any of the Asian countries, just feel free to contact us, and we will help you handcraft your Asian experience according to your needs.
Our pick for 2018 – Bhutan
Bhutan is a unique country both culturally and environmentally. Perched high in the Himalayas, it is the world’s last remaining Buddhist Kingdom. It has developed the philosophy of Gross National Happiness; where development is measured using a holistic approach of well-being, not just based on gross domestic product.
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. Bhutan is the only Vajrayana Buddhist nation in the world, and the profound teachings of this tradition remain well preserved and exert a strong influence in all aspects of life. Due to its pristine environment and harmonious society, the tiny Kingdom of Bhutan has been called “The Last Shangrila.”
Bhutan has four distinct seasons. The spring season (late March, April & May) and autumn season (late September, October & November) are the most popular times to visit with generally clear, mild weather, excellent scenery, lower rainfall and a range of festivals called Tshechus and Dromchoes.
The United Nations named 2017 the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, which promotes greater awareness of different cultures and their heritage and values.
Let’s do our part by visiting Bhutan, which is both incredibly rich in culture, and the world’s most eco-friendly country.
