Druk Asia - Jan 2022 Newsletter

Posted on 12/January/2022

Druk Asia team would like to wish you Nyilo Tashi Delek (Happy New Year)!

2021 has been a stressful pandemic year, especially for the tourism industry. While we were unable to host any tourists in Bhutan last year, our passion for sharing the beauty of the Kingdom continues to burn brightly. A large part of our time was spent writing and publishing a travel guidebook to Bhutan. Since the release of Bhutan Travelog, we've brought joy to readers from all over the world including Singapore, Malaysia, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Cambodia, the Philippines, etc

We'd like to thank you for your great support and we look forward to hosting you in Bhutan sometime in the near future.

In the meantime, take care and keep safe.

Warmest regards,
Druk Asia Team
