Thimphu

Trip Planner Asia  /  Bhutan  /  Thimphu District  /  Thimphu
The kingdom's capital and most modern city, Thimphu offers a mix of ancient traditions and modern commercialism. An abundance of strikingly decorated and architecturally notable Buddhist sites represent the top attractions in Thimphu, though these revered monasteries, temples, and statues have been balanced out in recent years with a number of modern cafes, restaurants, and clubs. The idiosyncratic folk culture of the nation--with its singular dress code, music, art, and dance--can be discovered at a wealth of museums, performance spaces, and markets. Thimphu is in Thimphu District. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Thimphu trip itinerary using our Bhutan trip itinerary site .

Where to stay in Thimphu

As the capital, Thimphu features the largest range of accommodations in the kingdom. Only opening up to international tourism in the 1970's, the list remains relatively small, but the city remains in a period of development, so more options are arriving each year. Take a look along Norzim Lam, the main thoroughfare, for a number of small hotels, both budget and standard. Located close to the main attractions in the city, and overlooking the most attractive public plazas and parks, a small number of charming hotels offer mid-range and luxury rooms, with additional facilities such as pools.
