Thimphu - A Heritage getaway in Bhutan
Thimphu is Capital city of Bhutan with a character. No traffic lights, Structures full of Buddhist motifs and laidback character definitely is a throwback into 1960s / 1970s style feel.
Thimphu is a tourist hub of Bhutan with most sightseeing options that comprise monasteries, craft centers, museums and many monuments.
Thimphu is home to many festivals and visited by western travelers specifically for it. Thimphu is best visited for the sheer off-beat experience it offers. It kind of takes one back into time and gives a glimpse into culture and traditions of past and how it merges and co-exists with Bhutan of today. This aspect of Thimphu and Bhutan as a whole is most fascinating experience for any heritage / off-beat traveler.
