It is a Shangri La. It is an oasis. It is a mirage. Thimphu offers a spiritual journey, a break from the hustle and bustle of life. Everything about the place seems peaceful: the green fields, crimson-robed monks, the gold-roofed temples. Visit the Centenary Farmer’s Market for food and handicrafts and the Folk Heritage Museum to learn about Bhutanese customs or see the 51.5 meters towering bronze and gold Buddha Dordenma statue. Thimphu also has cafes, restaurants, bars, and clubs for the night owls. Take a leap of faith here. We dare you.
