Bhutan Post Office Headquarters, Thimphu

(4.1/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Admire the traditional Dzong architecture at Bhutan Post Office Headquarters. The fortress-style edifice gives a nod to a style typical of Himalayan Tibetan Buddhist kingdoms--note the wide, decorated entryway and flared roof. Inside, browse through a large collection of stamps for sale, as well as a number of other souvenirs. Stop in the small museum showcasing Bhutan's postal history, including distribution in remote parts of the country. If you want to have a stamp made with your own picture, bring an image you like on a USB stick to avoid the line outside the photographer's studio.
