The main city of one of the world’s most intriguing locations, Thimphu combines a natural small-town feel with a new commercial exuberance that constantly challenges the state’s natural conservatism and Shangri-La image. For the guest, Thimphu offers the best possibility to briefly break away from the tour itinerary. In addition to its traditional Buddhist sights and attractions, it offers cafes, bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Finding a balance between the esoteric and espresso – the old and the new – is the key to getting the most out of this charming city. Vehicle traffic, unheard of a handful of years ago, now crawls through the center of town during an equally new phenomenon – rush hour.
