Bhutan Being Safe

No trip commences without a journey on the paved hairpin curves of Bhutan's national highway where caution and care is reminded every few kilometers.

Bhutan is a regal kingdom of approximately 675,000 that sets parameters on how outside influences come in, yet is free and open to receiving curious travelers--at a price.

The heavy taxation placed on travel is to help curb annual tourism without closing its borders. Every time the travel index surpasses 100k visitors a year the daily tax ceiling increases by $50/day. The last increase took place in 2008.

The current preservation efforts of Bhutan, both culturally and environmentally, has maintained its 100 year legacy being passed from one king to the first son.
