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.

  • Good place to enjoy, wander, sitting, gossiping, marketing and grasping the scenic beauty. It's really a good place with calm and quiet atmosphere. Only one thing bad is that the prices of everything in the market complex is too high.
  • Mostly open events are organised here ..n easy access to market for shopping. A popular site for Young forks..
  • Popular venue for public events and spectacles, close enough to most hotels and markets to make it a good spot to regroup/rendezvous for tourists.
  • Nice place to spend time. You can sit here and relax for a moment. There is a market along the edge, so you can go shopping also.
  • Nice place to loaf around , take rest or just time pass. Not really big but not congested. Shopping and restaurants around . Wallet parking 10 for 30 mins.
