Timeless Tours is pleased to offer this 12 day tour of Thailand combined with a 14 day tour of Bhutan. You will spend twelve days exploring the rich culture and history of Thailand and 14 days exploring mystical Bhutan.
The main focus of this program will be to get away from the standard tourist trail and learn about the history, culture, religions and flora and fauna of Thailand and Bhutan.
There will be plenty of opportunities to sample local cuisine with meals at up-market restaurants. We will also have comfortable hotel rooms to return to.
We will be accompanied throughout the tour by a Tour Leader. There will sometimes be local guides with specialist knowledge to assist in the presentation of information.
The Bhutan cultural tour is an unhurried journey to the mystical ‘dragon kingdom’. Bhutan is scenically magnificent with snow-capped mountains rising above jungle-covered hills and green river valleys where farms and villages are clustered. Centuries of Buddhist tradition inherited from Tibet helped shape Bhutan’s art, dance, medicine and music. A dignified and hospitable people, the Bhutanese will welcome us.
From the moment we arrive at Paro’s airport we enter a different world. You will be impressed by the majestic architecture of Bhutan’s traditional centres of religious and political power. You will admire its huge Dzongs (fortresses) and be fascinated by the Buddhist artworks within these and smaller temples.
Further afield you will visit botanical gardens to view Bhutan’s exotic fauna. You will see and learn about the creation of Bhutan’s distinctive woven fabrics. Visit markets where trade continues almost unchanged with the passage of time. You will have a guided tour of a traditional medicine hospital. You can also walk through a beautiful river valley to see an old manor house that hosts a museum of life in earlier days.
The Bhutan cultural tour is a unique opportunity to see one of the most exotic lands on earth. Bhutan boasts an ideology of Gross National Happiness and selects those aspects of the modern world that it wants while retaining its own colourful and fascinating culture.
