Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan, is an intoxicating blend of the modern and traditional. You’ll notice the enigma of Bhutan’s contrasts most evidently here: crimson-robed monks sharing pavement space with technology-conscious teens. Amidst Buddhist sights and traditionally dressed locals, travellers can soak up the charming exuberance of the city’s cafes, restaurants, nightclubs and markets.
There are no traffic lights in Thimphu, so grab the opportunity to pose with the city’s policemen who stand in decorative booths and direct traffic using hand signals.
