6) Though Indians do not need a visa to enter Bhutan, they are required to take a permit from Phuentsholing. You should carry 2 passport size pics and an ID card to apply for a permit.
For other nationals, it is important to arrange the visa before your visit. Visas are only arranged through a licensed tour operator. Other nationals need to pay $ 250/day/person for their stay in Bhutan. This will cover all expenses including a 4 star hotel, food, taxi with a driver.
7) It is illegal to smoke or carry cigarettes in Bhutan.
8) Bhutanese people like to preserve their culture. Though the doors for tourism were opened a long time ago, they don't want the country to be flooded with tourists.
9) Bhutanese measure their country's well-being in ‘Gross National Happiness’.
10) Bhutan is a Buddhist country known for its monasteries, fortresses and steep mountains. I went to the famous Tiger's Nest monastery in Paro. It is a spectacular 3-hour hike. Anyone visiting Bhutan must trek to Tiger's Nest.
