On a Friday evening, we were sitting with a glass of Merlot and croissants discussing about plans for this month, when somebody mentioned that it’s been a while since we talked about Cultural Differences of any country, how about we write something in this month’s blog? Without a second thought, decision was made, France was the chosen one! Not sure whether settlement on France was due to the lovely evening or the beverages we were having that originated from this country. But whatever may be the reason, we are sure you will enjoy reading this article thoroughly.
What is the first thing that you need to plan an international trip?
Passport of course! You thought we’d say visa? We wanted to but then it would have been incorrect and giving you wrong information goes against the policy of this blog. However, we liked the way you thought (wink).
Bhutan, the happiest country in the world, officially known as Kingdom of Bhutan lies on Himalayas’ eastern edge. This landlocked country is known for its dzongs, monasteries and beautiful landscapes where Buddhist culture embraces the global development. Still untouched and untroubled by external influences, this country has a charm that can’t be described in words.
It is particularly difficult (read expensive) to travel to this Asian kingdom, but not for Indian nationals. Due to strong ties shared between Bhutan and India, Bhutan allows Indian passport holders to explore the surreal landscapes by providing direct entry permits on border towns and in Thimphu.
