The country of happiness is here – Bhutan. Bhutan is perhaps the only unique country on the planet that measures its GDP on happiness. Bhutan is blessed with an amazing and stunning landscape that is protected by Bhutan Tourism. The people of this country and their culture have been attracting people from all over the world since the country opened its doors to the world.

Bhutan’s unsallied environment, the people on the streets, its buildings and architecture, their customs makes it an unique and offbeat tourist destination.
