Bhutan Tour Review-
Seema Kamat (Mumbai, India) – We had heard that Bhutan come no. 1 as happiest people in the world and is beautiful country so we decided to travel there. Bhutanese are peace loving people and you will not come across any beggars. It is safe place people do not cheat you but for food you will mostly have Bhutanese food
