Listen to the Dragon’s Call
In case you haven’t heard it yet, Bhutan has just been named one of ‘hottest’ travel destinations. This should speak for itself. Even otherwise, in plain language, Bhutan is a natural tourist destination.
The country’s ancient Buddhist culture, pristine natural environment, unclimbed peaks and diverse wildlife, and vibrant folk traditions—all contribute to Bhutan’s travel-worthiness.
Bhutan has constantly sought to take the road less traveled. In doing so, it has given the world credible alternatives to the concepts of human development and happiness. Today, many developed countries have adopted the happiness quotient in their development efforts.
The ever-deepening discourse on Gross National Happiness is a testament to Bhutan’s quiet introspection of the ultimate goodness of the human endeavor.
Bhutan seeks to be a happy country. It places the happiness of its people at the center of all national efforts. The long-term idea is that a happy citizenry would in turn seek to build a happy nation.
Late Anthony Bourdain perhaps had the best last words for Bhutan. A few months before he took his own life, the famed chef had proclaimed in his ‘Parts Unknown’ series on Bhutan: “One of the reasons [Bhutan’s] not on the tourist trail is it’s hard to get to. I’m glad it hasn’t been fucked up yet by the world.”
