The pandemic has disrupted our lives for too long. It's been more than one and a half years since Bhutan closed its borders for tourism.
We are all experiencing COVID-19 fatigue. Many of us are eagerly waiting for the day where we can take flight again. To a place where it's safe, peaceful and refreshing. For a proper recharge and reset.
Bhutan is definitely the best escapade one can get post-pandemic. Its quiet strength and natural charm will make it an ideal place for anybody to rejuvenate and relax after a stressful year.
While we can't book our flight to Bhutan yet, we're thrilled to share with you that we have released our very own travel guidebook to Bhutan.
And we're currently running a fundraising initiative to support various charities in Bhutan during this difficult period. Find out more information below if you'll like to support our humble initiative.
The guidebook will transport you to Bhutan and relive your memories of the good times if you'd been there. It'll also make a nice Christmas gift for your travel buddies to engage in some armchair travelling for now, until we can dust off our passports again.
Bhutan Travelog offers you exclusive first-hand experiences sharing by diverse travellers. Get to know about the myths and legends associated with the places of interest. Learn more about the Bhutanese culture and cuisine. Check out the most popular trekking routes.
