A LETTER FROM BHUTAN

Hello, everyone.
Finally, I got back to Bangkok and had a chance to write this post about
my tour to Bhutan.

As the country has been called "The Last Shangrila",
the major image of Bhutan is the bright sense of pristine nature and
Buddhist culture that affect all aspects of life.

sunnies: Fossil(old)
shoes: Nike(here)

What enchants travelers most is this unexploited nature.
More than 70% of the total land is under forest and 35% is strictly
protected national parks.



And as well as its nature, Bhutan is also known as "the happiest country."
The ideology "GNH(Gross National Happiness)" took shape around in the 90's,
and Bhutan now initiates this concept internationally.

But is this really real??
Probably you've noticed, this feeling 'happiness' differs in each region.
The percentage of 'happiness' tends to rise in the small provinces
and decline in cities like Thimphu- the capital city.

From the scenery of Thimphu...





 In the next post, I'll write about the life in farms in comparison with the city.
So stay tuned and see you soon...!!

ARIGATO!  Thank you for reading!!
