1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Beautiful environment and the incredibly talented architects/artists who create some awesome paintings on the window frames and columns. Humble, dignified and proud people who love their country. The guides and driver were extremely accommodating. Paro Festival and trek to Tigerís Nest.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Travel with open minds and hearts. Accept an alternative way of life in a developing country where most people want to improve themselves and their lives.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Local travel firm, guides, local restaurants visited giving a broad range of owners support. Carry your own water bottle to refill reducing single use plastic.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

What a lifetime experience to travel to a small section of the country but hopefully the other parts of Bhutan will have an equal chance for tourism development.
