Bhutan Holiday Ideas

Unique is an over-used (and mis-used) word, but we think it applies to Bhutan. After all, any country that measures Gross National Happiness has an original take on life, and it's this unusual take on life that makes Bhutan the perfect place for a culture fix. This is also one of THE great places for a walking holiday. Find out more in our Collections:

Culture Fix

At the risk of getting all deep, seeing how other cultures make sense of the stresses and strains of every day existence and celebrate the good things in life can be a thoroughly life affirming experience.

Walking Holidays

‘After a first faraway glimpse, the two famous steeples grew taller and taller as the miles that separated us fell away. At last they commanded the cloudy plain as the spires of a cathedral should, vanishing when the outskirts of the city interposed themselves, and then, as I gazed at the crowding saints of the three Gothic doorways, sailing up into the evening again at close range.’ So wrote the sadly departed travel writer Patrick Leigh Fermor in his famous book A Time of Gifts, about his walk from the Hook of Holland to Istanbul in the 1930s. Here he describes approaching the cathedral city of Cologne on foot and in doing so encapsulates all the beauty of walking - the slowly changing perspective, the anticipation of arrival, the heightened sense of what’s going on around you. Walking is the way to really see a place.
