DO’S IN BHUTAN

  1. Although Bhutan welcomes foreigners, the country is extremely conscious regarding its culture.
  2. The greeting in the Bhutanese language Dzonkha for hello is Kuzu Zangpola, and says Tashi Delek for good bye or good luck.
  3. All Indian citizens are entitled to discounted avail SDF at INR 1200 per night. Indian Voter ID card original or Indian Passport Original should be produced at the time of entry to avail permit at Phuentsholing. Produce the same at the time of exit as well. 
  4. Indian Rupees is widely accepted as currency for buying/paying bills. Please carry cash currencies up to INR 500 only. 
  5. Use right hand while giving or receiving something. Pass the holy sites keeping them on your right side.
  6. US dollars are pretty widely accepted in Bhutan, but you are still advised to exchange some of your currency to Bhutan's currency i.e. ngultrum (Nu)or Indian Rupee for buying small items and for the really remote places. There are not many ATM machines nearby except major cities like Thimphu, where also international ATM/credit cards might or might not work.
  7. Do bring MasterCard - NOT Visa or other credit cards. Banks, ATM's will NOT give cash on a Visa credit card in Thimphu or Paro and other areas as well and only a few merchants will take credit cards.

 

DON’T’S IN BHUTAN

  1. Make sure you take off your footwear before you enter into any religious place. 
  2. You are advised to dress discretely and modestly in Bhutan. If you’re visiting any Bhutanese temple (Tsechu), they’d admire you if you wear their national dress gho & kira. Also make some donation to Tsechu. While visiting monastries decent dress covering your knee & sleeve wear are preferred. Round neck T shirts not allowed for men. 
  3. Don't jump to give toys or treats to children in exchange for photo offers. Locals are careful not to breed a generation of children who beg tourists, as happens - but adults likely will not object out loud out of politeness.
  4. Do not touch on other person's or children's head as it's not considered pleasant in Bhutaneese culture. 
  5. Tuesday is dry day in Bhutan 
  6. Friday in Zero Tolerance Day where any small mistake or violations will be fined strictly.  Please follow local rules and regulations. 
  7. No spitting or throwing garbage in public places. Use dustbins. Use washrooms for nature's call.
