Our train to Hasimara was at night and we reached at around 10 am in the morning. From Hasimara station, the travel agent had booked an Innova to Phuentsholing in Bhutan. After crossing Jaigaon, which was the border town in India, we reached Phuentsholing.
One important thing to keep in mind while going to Bhutan is that if you reach Phuentsholing before 10 a.m., you can have your immigration and verification done before noon and then you can travel ahead. Else, the office closes at noon and you have stay at Phuentsholing. Best thing about Bhutan is there is no need of VISA or even Passport, only voter ID is enough. But it's advisable to carry your valid passport with you. Another good thing is the exchange rate is almost same as that of Rupee. The exchange rate is 0.99.
Since we reached after noon, we had to stay at Phuentsholing that day and do immigration and verification next day early morning.
Phuentsholing is a small city but the difference between India and Bhutan was distinctly visible. It had clean streets, less people and organised traffic.
Our travel agent had booked a hotel in Phuentsholing which was really good. Its name was Asian Kitchen Bar and Restaurant.
After getting fresh, we strolled in and around Phuentsholing. Though it's a small city, it has enough to offer for half a day. We had lunch at a restaurant, Hotel Damchen.
