Bhutan Has Been Such A Beautiful Surprise



Bhutan has been such a beautiful surprise. It is a gem of a place, more so with my wonderful guide and driver turned friends, Tshering Pelden and Tobdhen Barwa. They were amazing companions for my solo tour through Bhutan. The 10 days there seemed so short considering the unique beauty of Bhutan. I especially love how genuine and sincere they have been and how they have taken care of me all through my stay. I cannot thank them enough for all that they have done for me. I am really thankful to have visited Bhutan through Drukasia. I believe the hospitality and sincere care is what makes the trip a league above the rest.

Once again, thank you, Sonam, for assisting and advising me prior to my confirmation of this trip of a lifetime. I am pretty certain you will be hearing from me again

We Enjoyed The Trip Very Much!



Basically we enjoyed the trip very much. Mainly the guide and itinerary was good. A few things that I could suggest include:

1. The tiger's nest needs more stamina and strength than anticipated. Perhaps people bringing young children (5 and below) and old people are not advisable because it is really tough. The hike is also more than 4hrs. More towards 5-6hrs, for the round trip.

2. The lunch provided could be better if we could choose the restaurants given within your available restaurants so that we can pick.

3. Haa valley was not worth going, considering the long, windy road trip that is more tiring. If there are a list of activities to do, like horse riding around the wilderness, or to see something more special, than perhaps it is worth going.

My First Trip to Bhutan



Many thanks for your email. First off, I would like to express my thanks to your team, Tshering and Pema for being such wonderful hosts for my first trip to Bhutan. Tshering was a wonderful, kind and conscientious guide. She was very sensitive to my well-being during the trip, and provided me with a wealth of knowledge on the culture and history of Bhutan. Many thanks to Pema as well for being a wonderful driver, especially on the rough roads. Despite the rainy season, we were blessed with sunny and warm weather most of the trip.

I have already shared my feedback with DrukAsia in a separate feedback form given to me by Tshering and will not repeat them here. In the meantime, I attach some photos from my experience and my food blog post on Bhutan and hope to visit your country again

One of Our Best Trips



Thank you for arranging the trip of a lifetime! Bhutan is so beautiful and magical! We enjoyed the trip from the very start at Paro Airport. The majestic mountains greeted us when we arrived. Thank you, Sonam for letting us have the wonderful opportunity of meeting our guide Ms Tshering Pelden aka Ms TP and our driver Mr Kuenzang. We had a whale of a time and also made good friends with her and Mr Kuenzang.

The tour was so jam-packed with activities and within a span of 9 days we packed in more than we should have with the many nooks and crannies in Bhutan - culture, nature, travel destinations, culinary delights, school visits, religious ceremonies and most of all the many friendships and meeting Bhutanese people in their natural environment. This trip was one of our best.

Visit To Be Cherished



Dear Sonam,

Bhutan is a beautiful country with warm and friendly people. We enjoyed ourselves very much!

The iternary is well planned and our guide Tshering and driver Tandin are fantastic. They always ensure that we are comfortable and took special care when my wife fell sick on the 5th day. Many thanks to them.

One feedback is the coordination with Drukair. Our return flight was cancelled and we were arranged to fly to Bangkok at a later timing and connect to Singapore. However, no information of the connecting flight was provided. We were told to check with Drukair staff but they claimed that they do not have the details as well. On arrival in Bangkok, there was no ground staff assisting us. After checking with the concierge, we finally met up with Drukair Bangkok staff. She provided

Enjoyably Bhutan trip for us



Hi Sonam,

Thank you for your email and Happy New Year

Bhutan was amazing, we loved it so much!

Thank you for making the trip enjoyable for us and especially for being flexible to allow the last minutes cancellation for the Gangtey- Dewachen hotel without charging any fees. We love the places/people and hospitality from Bhutanese.

If there is any one minor improvement feedback from me, I would suggest to change the location for the first restaurant (lunch on 17/Dec) for all the travellers in future, my humble opinion the food is not great for our taste and for travellers, I believe we would like to have a First nice meal experience for the first time we arrive in Bhutan.

Thanks Sonam! We'll find some time for sharing some of our stories in the Druk-Asia FB page
