Bhutan is the only country which does not support tourism. It levies  a heavy surcharge to its visitors except Citizens SAARC countries. As a result this country has not yet been destroyed by tourism or commercialized because of Tourism. So the beauty is intact.
Bhutan’s economy is  mainly dependent on selling electricity to India.
Bhutan being ruled by a nice King, has been able to preserve its natural wealth and culture. You will find all officers well dressed in Gho. You’ll even find all buildings outside architecture similar. MNC hoardings and signboards are prohibited.

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not disappoint me as much as this particular one.Funny Happy New Year Quotes I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I truly thought you would probably have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of crying about something that you could possibly fix if you were not too busy searching for attention.
