Bhutanese culture is one of the distinctive cultures in the world. As a tiny country with a very small population the need to preserve culture and tradition is amplified. This unique culture is a means of protecting the sovereignty of the nation. The distinctiveness of the culture and tradition is visible in the everyday life of the Bhutanese people.  In the mid of 1980s a Journalist once asked our beloved King about development and our King said he would like to see that Bhutan proceeds into "Modernization rather than Westernization", thus even today the people of Bhutan strongly believes in the far sighted vision of our Monarch and maintains our culture and tradition with love and dedication. 

Mahayana Buddhism is widely practiced in Bhutan. Sacred shrines and prayer flags dominate the landscape, serving as a constant reminder of another existence, beyond the present world. Most of the people living in this mountainous region are farmers who have chosen lives contentment, in harmony with nature and their neighbours. The world of materialism has still not yet touched the living standards of the people at large. People of all ages wear the traditional clothes, known as "Gho" for men and "Kira" for women.

Bhutan is a religious country with great saints having been in Bhutan since the 1600s. Bhutan has many great architectural manifestos to showcase its history to the world.

Starting from landing at the only International Airport in Paro, the guests can see the Rinpung Dzong in Paro, followed by Semtokha Dzong as one enters into the capital city Thimphu.  There are many interesting sites to see in Thimphu but a must to see is the Tashichhodzong, which houses the Golden Throne Room of  His Majesty the King, the Central Monastic Body and some offices of the Royal Government of Bhutan.

As the guests go beyond Thimphu and Paro, there are many other great architectural structures to see all over Bhutan, including the 108 Druk Wangyel Chortens (Stupas) at Dochula Pass at 3300 meters above sea level.
